Church of the Mind by Amy Crook

Church of the Mind by Amy Crook

When I originally drew this, I had considered coloring the stained glass window, but I found the image so striking in black and white I left it.

A few astute people among you might recognize the model as one I’ve used a few times before, though the stark chiaroscuro led to his face being obscured. If you click to see the larger view, you can just make out the subtle skull shadowing the figure’s face.

There’s some sort of statement in the juxtaposition of images, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide what.

Church of the Mind, 12″x18″ brush and ink on paper, $599 with free shipping.

This image is on paper, and will require matting or framing to be suitable for display; I’m happy to frame it for you for a small additional fee.

13 Pink Roses

The 13th rose is barely on the canvas, sneaking my lucky number onto this rosebush. Branches lean out over a white fence, and bees buzz lazily around the flowers. The bright blue summer sky has a pale summer sun shining down, and the whole image is painted in oils on a small four-by-five-inch canvas board.

The edges of this canvas board are finished, the image wrapping around to the sides to add a some extra dimension. The easel is included, so this painting can be displayed as is on a bookshelf, desk, windowsill, or anywhere you want a little lazy summer sunshine.
