A two (and a bit)-day painting of a shrine found in all rice padi's in Bali called Pelinggih, which are dedicated to the rice goddess, Dewi Sri. This is another picture on canvas which I am enjoying painting on as it is quite different to board and I will continue to try this new surface on most of my upcoming paintings. This is the result of seeing Mucha's The Slav Epic in Prague last month which turned me on to the possibilities of canvas. It is of course yet another learning curve, this time to learn about paint on canvas (will they ever level out?) but I'm hoping this might address certain concerns I have about the look of my work as far as wanting it to look more like a painting and less "photographic". 16" x 16" oil on canvas.
