I was thinking something about ram skull. I painted it before in 2018 and loved it. However this time I didn’t want to do the still life again. I was looking for something unusual but also peaceful. Although the skull was from a dead creature, it didn’t have to be gloomy or desperate.
So I tried to put the ram skull in different environment such as beach, woods or mountains. Finally I found out a reference photo of waterfall. It was perfect for my needs. Now I had a giant ram skull standing as a waterfall deep in the woods. I still needed a human to be the size reference. This time, it had to be human figure. The ram skull represented animals already. First I tried climber. It didn’t work. Then I tried traveler, paddler, swimmer, explorer and hunter. They didn’t work either. As usual, I started to go through random human figure reference photos online. Suddenly, I saw the monk. I was so excited! That was it. The monk.
As a “small” human, the monk quietly sits in front of the giant dead animal’s skull. He is doing his Zen practice. He is surrounded by water peacefully. Life on this earth comes and goes. At this moment, the monk is seeing through this giant creature’s glory in the past time.
This piece was painted on Fredrix Blue label ultra smooth stretch canvas in traditional profile 3/4”. It has been varnished and carefully packaged with two same size cardboards, buffering paper, bubble wrapping paper and 4 corner protectors.
Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.
Note, the painting ships unframed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
