This is a closeup of the early version of my Oil Painting for Erzulie Dantor, titled “Dantor’s Song.” I chose this Image as my official gravatar for my blog! I had alot of fun working on this painting, It Is the theme of my Artists’ title and my favorite color, Cadmium Red Deep was used most in this piece!
This is the early version of my Oil Painting for Dantor, before I gave her tears of blood and added more detail to the daggers for the final piece.
The tears of blood may seem fantastical, but there actually is a medical condition that causes blood-filled tears.
Scaring the pants off even the most experienced Opthamologists is Haemolacria.
Painting the blood and tears was, for me, as an artist, symbolic of the rage and aggression in the Red Eyed aspect of the spirits.
