Week 41. "Friends in the Desert, Part II" 30"x22" blue ink and pastel on archival paper
This weeks piece is based on a painting I did a few years ago called "Friends in the Desert" done in oil on canvas and which can be seen below. I've taken the original idea and have turned it into an illustration in which the figure can be seen in several different stages of his journey rather than just one. Although part I has it's surreal qualities, part II becomes takes those qualities to a new level. The world in which the figure is living is a physical impossibility but certainly a reflection of the real world. It's a psychological space visited in dreams on more than one occasion.
