untitled by Ragdollar untitled by Ragdollar
2008, Oil on canvas
(measurements have slipped my mind and will be added later, it's the turpentine fumes..) I also couldn't decide on a name yet, maybe it'll come with time - maybe it won't.

ow!  a moment of being at one with the sea, sky and all the creatures.  Feels like when, as a child, I would sneak out in the middle of the night, wade through the water and scramble over rocks to sit in a sea cave, watching the moonlight on the water.  THANK YOU!

This painting seems to reflect my mood perfectly right now. I couldn't sleep because all my problems just kept following me everywhere, even in my bed where I was just suppose to dream and relax. These problems are just putting me in an annoying dark spirit­... I hope this picture will help me transcend these unwelcomed feelings :P (Sorry if my english is bad...)

I love this work~ the brushstrokes, the shadowy figure against the slightly lighter background. The beams of light against the birds. It really is a very good piece of work~

Hahah, yes they do. The amount of turpentine I poured on this one.. Those were some hazy days! Thanks. :)

BluestWaves Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
turpentine is so good for those transparencies... I wish someday I'll get the hang of it :)

Also, turpentine is what made me shy away from oils for a long while, until I got this kind of divine inspiration that told me: "try working outside"
:O

it's better for the hazyness, but it only works when it's not raining :P hahaha

not only because the mood of this master piece is amazing,
but the fact that I see nightmares like these)

Beautiful... and creepy. Congratulations!
If I may, the first thing I thought when I saw it, it was "shaman". As far as I know, in many cultures, when the shamans start their travel in the spirits' world, they take the form of a bird (or a bird litteraly burst out of them gnawing its way through their physical body). Hence, they're often painted with a bird head instead of a human one.

That's a cool interpretation, thanks for sharing! I think I've read somewhere that in middle-eastern cultures ravens are seen as birds that guide your soul to the afterlife once you die. I think it's a beautiful thought.
