I have a new painting to show you - the latest in my "I Vampiri" vampire series - "I Vampiri: Pietà"! And it's really cool! Why all the vampires? I might as well tell you, since I've signed the contract, lol - I've been commissioned by Blue Angel publishers (the same company that is publishing my "Oracle of Shadows and Light" deck coming out in May) to create yet another tarot/oracle deck - all about Vampires! So over the next 8 months or so you'll be seeing a lot of new vampire-themed paintings from me (in addition to all of my usual themes and non-vampire paintings, of course!). So - the vampire paintings may be of special interest to collectors since they will be immortalized (no pun intended) in a new tarot deck. Also tonight I have some NEW ACEO cards up starting at a penny (including one you've never seen before, from a custom painting!), A Little Bit of Spring, Madonna of the Shells, Faces of Faery, more- all ACEOS up now at a penny!
First - the new original painting! "I Vampiri: Pietà" is the title - the third in my series of paintings called "I Vampiri " (which is Italian for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by Italian Baroque & Italian Renaissance themes and aesthetics (many of which I have been hired to create for my upcoming Vampire Tarot/Oracle Deck). This third painting is called "I Vampiri: Pietà" (which means "Pity" in Italian) and I had a lot of fun with this one! Obviously, the Pietà is more than just "pity" when it comes to the art world - Michelangelo popularized the "Pietà" as a pose, which has been repeated throughout the centuries (from his original statue at the Vatican to the covers of horror movies and comic books). So of course, the marble figure in this painting is none other than Michaelangelo's statue of the Pietà. Can't get more Italian Renaissance than that! The vampire queen cradling him on her lap does appear to show a sense of pity in her sad, glowing eyes. This was so much fun to paint, and I think it turned out great. This is LARGER than the previous two Vampiri, an original 18"x24" acrylic painting on 2" deep craded masonite, ready to HANG! (No frame needed!). She's up starting at just one penny on eBay for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Thursday, April 8th at 6:58 PM Central Time:
