If the clouds are your embrace, then I shall fall into your arms
and rip your heart from the sky


Ihkhoshjaa of the Khua'thr, who aimed to dethrone the gods.

Available as an open edition print & as a limited edition giclee.

Well, this took me entirely too long to finish. First all sorts of nonsense kept popping up, and then my hard drive imploded. I saved everything I really needed to save and finally had an excuse to get a better machine, but still. What a headache.

Photoshop 7.0…and a slight touch of Painter in the sky, but I painted over most of it back in Photoshop, so I'm not sure it counts… the program is still too foreign to me. I can’t handle anything polished in it yet.

Early sketch stages of this image are featured in this month’s IFX cover article, “100 New Ways to Paint”, which I helped co-author. :)

Hi Lauren! I used this wonderful picture of yours in a non-profit video that I made. I like to write poetry & put it to music as a hobby. I fell in love with this picture, as it speaks life & death. It is very beautiful. I hope you don't mind. Here is a link
Thank You Heart !
