Leviathan

Both 16″x20″ Acrylic on canvas. The painting is textured and varies in shade and gloss.  This painting was alive even after it had appeared to be dry, was it the Leviathan coming to life? No, it was because of the acrylic drying medium I used.
One of the most satisfying paintings I’ve worked on, I look at this painting and I see me. I don’t see myself literally in the tangled mess of black ooze. I look at it and I can see my history, times when I found myself staring down the belly of the beast, struggling to pull my eyes away from that dark abyss. Not one to make biblical references…I read that Leviathan can be known as several creatures, a sea monster, a Hellmouth and even a demon of envy.
