Bust by @carlo_miniatures

An intense, thoughtful, emotional, personal project I had to finish even I had stomach pain while I did so.

The sculpt was calling me. The plinth went big and deep.

    I like the brushstrokes on her face. It works really well with hight of the plinth. The plinth looks like it is infinite. I don’t want to know how deep she sinks in it. Damn scary. Great story. The reflections on the black surface are cool. It is a very shiny black!

    This reminds me so much of someone trapped like a seagull in an oil slick. Rather pertinent in the world right now. Great painting.

    Was trying to find words, but it communicates the emotion so well. You feel it when seeing it. Brilliant.
