The Fates - Pandemic

 I have been working on this, The Fates - Pandemic. It's very large, 130cm x 170cm. Oil on canvas with mixed media, (plaster and thread). 

The Fates or Moirai – are a group of three weaving goddesses who assign individual destinies to mortals at birth. 

Consistently portrayed as three women spinners, each of the three Fates had a different task, revealed by her very name: Clotho (the Spinner), spun the thread of life, Lachesis (the Alloter), measured its allotted length, and Atropos (the Inflexible) cut it off with her shears. Sometimes, each of the Fates was assigned to a specific period of time: More details here. https://www.greekmythology.com/Other_Gods/The_Fates/the_fates.html

I have also loosly incorperated the elements, fire(Clotho), Earth (Lachesis) and Water (Atropos).

Here are some close ups.

Endless

                                             Endless 170 x 130cm oil on canvas

 This very large painting is a development of a piece I made last year, (isolation; emotional toll,)

I used the same image and flipped it, which created a different feeling in the viewer. It is a very large canvas but the figure is the same size as in the previous piece. The figure and background are quite thickly painted and there are areas of texture which is to represent the fabric or the painting, and the world being riped and torn but more of the same is revealed.

And in the meantime on the zombie theme

Here is a drawing of a dead wren that I did yesterday.
 

DEAD WREN 50 x 50 cm charcol and coloured pencil on  brown paper (clear gesso.)

thicker paint

I painted thicker.... yes, I am pleased with the brush strokes, the strength, that they are 'the figure' not the woman being looked at.... but unfortunately, they look a bit like zombies.... ha ha.... which was not my intention. So, I added colour.... the seated one is next.
