This is the result of my last class at the Louisiana Workshop, 2010. We studied the paintings of Walton Ford. The key to most of his work is what he calls attraction-repulsion, which is at first you are attracted by something very beautiful and then repulsed by a closer look when you see what's really going on with the story in the painting.
There wasn't time to complete my painting in class, but when I can bring it home I'll finish the trap for the male Icebird (Isfulen). I'll have to find out what they are called in English too!
