Morning Star

This is a new tondo (circular painting) from a series I’ve been working on recently. The circular format forces me to reconsider the picture space.

Some Pietàs

Here are some versions of the Pietà (Italian word meaning “pity”, here referencing the image of the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Christ). It’s a traditional religious subject, & while I’m not a religious person, I find it a poignant image to work with. Here are some of my versions:
