storm XVII

I couldn’t resist it.

Here’s Daedalus…

First layer only, I’ll grey the wings back a little so they aren’t quite as dominant. Isn’t he lovely. I think Icarus needs wings too, but his will be white. I tried giving him a black pair but didn’t like the effect. White will emphasize the duality of the two men, too. Father, son, spirit.

I gave my lady a shirt and shorts to wear, so the two figures match.

I gave her a little toe ring, too. Thanks Kathryn.

  1. Hey Michael! I am really enjoying watching your process…I think this is the first time I have observed a painting coming to life…and perhaps the first that I have engaged in such a way that I have taken meaning from it.

    Thanks!
