New Work: "Lilith"

Lilith oil on canvas 16"x20"

A piece commissioned earlier this year has finally been completed! Quite pleased with the way this iconic image came out. Although sticking fairly rigidly to the specifications the patron designated, I was able to incorporate quite a bit of my own interests into the piece as well. 

I've given it the title Lilith based on the ancient Babylonian mythological and Biblical figure of the demon-goddess who was in some texts believed to be the first wife of Adam before the Fall. It is alternately titled "Hurricane", based on the themes designated by the patron who commissioned the piece.
