Last evening I completed a small painting, I like to think of it as an icon, an icon to a dreadful god. Once again, the great war god of Tenochtitlan has captured my imagination, this time expressed in oil.

This isn’t the most fearsome depiction of a war god , Ares seems far more terrible (and cowardly) in the Iliad. Somehow my war god translated into something gentle and bumbling, I’m thinking that is a good thing.
Be well, Lg
