Hand of Glory work in progress

Here’s where I’m at so far with this Hand of Glory piece. Part of the way through I changed my plans and did some studying of calligraphy for a while, practicing styles I saw in old illuminated manuscripts. The light area at the bottom will have some calligraphy which I will do in oil paints.

Ah, yes I finished this one a while ago but wasn’t sure I was happy with the photos I took of it. It’s usually quite difficult to get good pics of oil paintings, especially if they are glossy. In any case, this has been done quite a long time so I think it’s time to post it.

This is the character Peppermint Butler from Adventure Time.

I’ve had this super heavy ornate frame for a long time and made this painting specifically for this frame.
