More Art Work in Progress...

"Did Vishnu Dream of Jesus?"
By Erik John Bertel
Acrylic on Canvas 60" x 35"
Copyright 1999

Along with the Millennium Painting this is going to be a another art work in progress. "Did Vishnu..." was never really completed. Areas that need work really include the entire top portion of the painting. In the top right hand corner there is large object that was to be a skull. The figures near the globe were never completed and the leaves of the lotus blossom were only roughed-in.

To the top-right is a drawing and study for the new skull to be added to the painting. The pictures directly to the right gives you some idea regarding the coloring to used in the painting. Though somewhat macabre the idea is to suggest the cycle of life.
