The Cosmic Cloister

I did this picture in May of 2003. It depicts a cloister whose ceiling is a virtual representation of the galaxy, kind of like the Hogwarts ceiling in the Harry Potter books. The fountain contains liquid energy rather than water. The figure standing at the fountain contemplating it all is one of my own characters, Tanheu the techno-mage. Maybe I'll post more about him someday. Painting is acrylic watercolor on illustration board, 13" x 19". Perhaps I should apologize for posting so many archival images...but I've been majorly busy with holiday sign jobs all week.

My iMac, which bears the Byzantine name of "MACarios," is working perfectly tonight, with no huffing or puffing. (I'm Ravenclaw, not Hufflepuff, for you Rowling fans.) Perhaps it was going through some pre-programmed self-correction routine, or some sort of arcane maintenance operation. Or perhaps MACarios was annoyed that I was paying attention to my PC.

For some reason, when looking at this pic, I was imagining different roofs, more sharply angled, just as a curiosity of seeing how it would affect the prominence of the sky against the character in this particular work.
