Loerelei(old version) by Keithspangle Loerelei(old version) by Keithspangle
I decided to put some of my older pieces back up. This was previously shown under a previous DA incarnation.
Oil on Canvas 36"X 60"
I have done several revisions of this painting and I'm still not happy with it, so expect some more changes.

Thank you! I was wondering what the ruins of our civilization would look like in two or three thousand years.

You are very welcome ! :)

You made a great concept about that; for sure :nod:
I am suspicious most of the 'modern' building material endure that much; But rocky materials surely will survive that long

I have noticed that here in the Southwest USA: the old traditional style of building  with stone and adobe (mud bricks)last forever.  The modern wood frame building disappear almost at once.

The stonhedge & similiar buildings probably last forever even after humans left The planet.
Thought its sad mostly modern buildings doesn't even haf a chance to time

Perhaps some buildings SHOULD disappear as soon as their builders depart.  Others, perhaps, should be built to last for as long as the planet orbits the sun.  I would not mind living in a tent or a yurt and have my artwork displayed once in a while in a building that will outlast the pyramids.

Yeah; like weapons. I don't want to think what other civilazations would think İF they find a fossilized nuclear bomb ! :(
'' Man...
''These guys really were experts on mass destruction\s. No wonder Why they went extinct''

İndeed; some buildings even found way after; even; the planet itself is dead.
Maybe something like 'The face' from Mars.

That would be cool !

That kind of reminds me of the old Planet of the Apes movies from the 70's....the surviving humans were worshipping a nuclear bomb.

:)  I always worry that when I go back and rework a painting all I am doing is screwing it up worse.

I know exactly what you mean!
When I don't finish a work within a few days, I never finish it at all because I'm not really "in" it anymore and I'm afraid I'll screw it up.. but that's ridiculous, because it's better to risk screwing something up than never finishing it.
I hope to see the end result soon :D

  I had a model do the poses of the "lorelei" so I could correct their anatomies, then I changed their skin/fur and hair color.  I cleaned up a lot of the stuff over on the right side of the painting and back in the trees, then shot a better picture of it.

I really like it!
But - I'm sorry to say so - I liked the colours of the woman better in the old picture. With skin colour and light blue hair.
Still, it's an awesome painting :)

Yeah, I was kind of partial to the gold skin and blue/silver hair.  Problem was that it didn't work with the rest of the painting.  Perhaps i should try them again in a different setting...perhaps as a species of mermaid that had branched off from its human roots.
