Awakening 2..Ecdysis. by PeteHamilton Awakening 2..Ecdysis. by PeteHamilton
Awakening.
Ecdysis.
re-birth pains.
Imago.
Solar powered.

Update; have noticed that if you tilt the screen looking at this in large size,instead of looking directly at it, the sun in the painting has red ripples on it like an actual photo of the sun, but didnt paint that effect on there and only used black and white paint..

Wow. Your gallery is amazing! I really dig this one in particular. Especially those wrinkled husks of hands.

I'm sorry, but this is like one of my all time favorites of anything i've come across on DA. You win. I'd like to know something about your process and what you do to translate the concept to the canvas. It's absolutely amazing!

The last time I saw the word "ecdysis" was in a backpage entry in H.P. Lovecraft's commonplace book where he pooled stray ideas.

Excellent concept and execution here as always.

Love the end result. Very expressive, very emotional, very Dali-ish.
Good that you pointed out the sun, and its importance for growth, its so discrete but effective.

That's very hard to say. I just feel the image is a perfect representation of how the process of growth has felt to me. It's great when one can express the seemingly inexpressible. :D
