Trial by fire

750 EUR
Oil on canvas 50x70 cm. Rustic wooden frame made by artist. Signature on front and back. Title on back.

This is one of those paintings even I have trouble telling what it's about. It began as a slightly unsettling daydream. An illustration from a forgotten fairytale. At times I have had many theories as to what the Muses were trying to tell me but I invite you to make up your own story. 

It is also one of those paintings that came together very slowly. I couldn't leave it alone so I repainted it several times. Refining it. I didn't really change much though.
