Sea of Dreams

She waits on the shores of the Siren Sea, opposite the Fields of Unformed Desires. Her song calls to the pirate vessel that she will captain across the mists of the cerulean waters. Full disclosure, the pose/idea is based on a photo (not mine) taken of a friend on whom I’ve had a school-boy crushContinue reading “Sea of Dreams”

So, assuming you’re over the bad boy phase, if youContinue reading “Silent Agony”

Test of Faith

A cold winter evening, somewhere in the city.  On the roof of a nondescript tenement, a life is about to end… or is it about to begin? Every artist does a religious painting at some point (at least the ones I follow), so here is my contribution to that lexicon of beauty.
