Intense, mysterious, loyal, and unyielding. The 8th sign of the zodiac is independent, fiercely determined, and able to accomplish anything they put their mind to. Below the cool, relaxed exterior lies an intense passion and strong will. While tending to shy away from the center of attention one can be assured that the Scorpio is maintaining influence and control from the shadows. This painting is not framed but the sides of the canvas are painted so a frame is not required. It can simply be hung on the wall as is with a small trim nail. It is coated with a gloss finish varnish. This painting was completed on November 22, 2014. And yes, I am a Scorpio.

I create abstract/surreal oil paintings using techniques that draw largely on the wet on wet technique made popular by Bob Ross. This influence can be seen especially in the backgrounds. The abstract concepts are placed and created in a more realistic environment. The focal object(s) are created with textures such as rocky surfaces or smooth organic shapes with an attention to lighting and shading that can sometimes be absent from abstract paintings. I also tend to work in definitive color schemes such as reds, blues, browns, etc.
