For this piece, all artists were given a choice of vintage paintings featuring bodies of water found by Don & Dylan of Subtext Gallery all across the country. Here are some of my progress shots from initial ideas/sketches through the painting stages.
A little explanation about the piece:
I titled the piece “Take Me to the Portal” because I imagine that if you’ve managed to come face to face with this serpenty sea witchy goddess, you would already be on a quest to find the underwater interdimensional portal and this the the command you must tell her. You’ll take her hand and she’ll lead you out to sea… past the 6 winged towers and down into the depths! She gives me the feeling that she may have ulterior motives… but you’ll just have to trust her because she’s probably the only way you’ll get to this portal.
