To Be Called by Dusksong To Be Called by Dusksong
This is the first of a series of six paintings I have not yet finished (a fact which will hopefully change once I find a studio space again).

As I researched different legends and tales from different cultures, I found that almost every culture has the quintessential "Hero's Journey" tucked away in their stories. Of course, the hero may change his clothes, her name, but the pattern is unmistakable.

This painting was inspired by an Ethiopian story, in which the Heroine is called away by voices only she can hear.

Oils, 2009

Very very cool! I love how you've done the wall especially -- I can feel the roughness and the textured shadows =)

Thanks so much, friend! It was a really fun process to do, actually--I took a palette knife and just slathered on a ton of paint like it was frosting. Needless to say, it was quite freeing.

My pleasure =) It does sound quite freeing -- something for me to try, if I ever get the chance!
