Newest painting. This one is called “Deposition with Butterflies”, and is based on the painting, The Deposition by Rogier Van der Weyden. Van der Weyden’s painting is a masterpiece of Christian art showing overwhelming grief in the faces of the subjects. The size of the original is about 87″ x 103″ (or approximately life-sized). My painting focuses on Mary (a seagull) with all of the faces of the other figures cropped out. My painting is technically only 5″ x 5″ as the rest is the border of an inch all the way around. I could go on and on about the original painting which can be found on Wikipedia here: Deposition
“Deposition with Butterflies”, watercolor and 23.5K gold leaf on paper. 7″x7″. Latin translation: Attend and see if there be any sorrow like my sorrow.
