So there it is! I finally finished it!!!! This picture, believe it or not, has taken over a year to paint...I know..
(It is not an impeccable photo of it, it's slightly distorted by the camera lens & you can see sunlight reflected across it so this is the best I can get for now!).
The painting has to do with the way we seem to treat each other, in very mechanical/clinical & inhumane ways, and with the so called "New plagues". And about other stuff too...

Hope you like it, and feel free to let me know what you think.
I am also about to finish 2 new paintings (which I started 3 years ago & never got around to finish) so I'll be posting them here very soon!
Thanx for looking.

Bye...xx eRic

Wow Eric! So this is the biggie you've been working on. I can really see how your style has moved on. This has a different edge to it, I always thought of your paintings as quite Romantic- y'know with a capital R, the lone adventurer on his/her journey, forging a path against all the elements. This branches alot more, its less about the individual and more about a collective unconscious. Wow, I am deep and stuff. I won't talk about Jung's collective unconscious...I'll shut my Art History pie hole, only to open it for more pie....mmmm pie.

Here's another review- I like it. it is good.
