PNT - Wine and Woodsmoke 3 by Shinjuchan PNT - Wine and Woodsmoke 3 by Shinjuchan
“Wine & Woodsmoke”
stretched 20" X 16" canvas

Eyes of the Dead! Ultra close-up on the eyes because I really am pleased at how they turned out for me in this piece and wanted you to have a good look.

This Windowknockeresque portrayal of the Deadman is one I’ve been working on since early June. It will be featured in the county fair ‘Access the Arts Western New York’. Acrylics w/ a light linseed coat. This will be the first example of ‘Kane the Undertaker’ I’ve done on canvas since Altar Of Illusions’s ‘Portrait Of Eternity’ (1997)

From the panes a green mist swirls
Is it a shadow of reflection?
This apparition in moon beams bathed
A voice like wind through trees beckons
Cool rain on hot summer stone
The odor fills my presence
Of freshly dug grave and death and night
These things are his essence
Nocturnal gentleman, spirit lover
Your mouth of wine and woodsmoke taste....

Aaaw... i love his eyes.
I'm usually not good at att at recognizing facian expression and eyes. I think Taker's eyes are very expressive because looking at them It's like as i fell emotion. I think his eyes are pure and belong to a very nice person, but I may be confused to have this impression about his eyes. As i said before, i'm not good to read facial expressions.

Your comment are so generous that you almost make it hard for me to confess that I gave him the ‘dead eye’ when I painted this; the eyes of the dead where the pupil begins to pale and loose color.
