Moments ago I finished a painting I had hoped to have finished by Feb. 2nd, the Feast Day of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. In my ongoing desire to be the pagan icon painter I present my own Presentation-a few weeks off.
Presentation at the Temple
oil on canvas
30 by 40 inches
My presentation includes the Meso-Aztec Holy Trinity : Coatlicue-She of the Skirt of Serpents, her son, the war-sun god Huitzilopochtli and a mendicant rain god Tlolac ( pretentiously and ridiculously appointed by yours truly,Pope O’Nonesense, as Protector of LA).
Tlaloc detail, Patron of Los Angeles-it is supposed to rain today, praise be to Tlaloc.
It is always delightful to finish a painting-I want a nap now but work awaits.
Until next time,
be well, Lg
