This was a painting that took quite a while to do, and was also painted over other, earlier images. The end result is kind of a combination of apocalyptic and sentimental aesthetics, which I like.
I could’ve put this drawing in the previous posting regarding the new ink drawings of heads…however, I thought it merited its own posting…
Time Traveling Angel, 2012, brush & ink on paper, 14″ x 11″.
I hope the title pretty much says it all here. This is for my ongoing “Heaven and Hell” series, which should comprise around 100 images on that theme. This one depicts St. John on the Greek island of Patmos in the process of writing the Book of Revelation (the last book of the New Testament that deals with prophecy and Apocalypse). Inspired by images by Bosch and others.
Size of the drawing is 23.5″ x 18″. Done in 2011.
