Hekserij by kolaboy Hekserij by kolaboy
Acrylic on canvas, 16x20 inches.

An old piece. I pretty much remember doing this one (though I later changed the girl's face). It was in August of 1989, which stuck particularly in my mind because it was unseasonably cold for August. I also remember listening to Penderecki's 2nd Symphony as I was painting.

The owl chimera has turned up in my dreams several times, always in a night forest setting, and always whispering evil things to me. Blasphemies, and vivisections...
I have no doubt that it exists - somewhere.

And, on that cheery note, I thank you for looking =)

I see Alfons Mucha in this painting. If Mucha was more somber, sad, nightmare-ridden and, of course, way less obsessed with champagne and cigarettes.

Mucha is amazing, especially the Slav Epic :nod:

Dude, "Mucha" in Spanish is "a lot" (for feminine nouns). Pretty cool, huh?
