Ancient Ones

The Ancient Ones

The theme of this painting has to do with a shaman imparting age-old knowledge regarding agricultural and animal husbandry to a peasant. This printmaking paper was covered with earthy toned acrylic colors then spread with a credit card. Before the paint was dry I spritzed the surface water resulting in an interesting mottled surface. The figures were deliberately painted with white paint as to accentuate their ghostly quality. One of my personal favorites!
