Monotype and Oil on Hardboard 24″x 48″
Glass Olive was the ink and the inspiration for this painting of Choronzon, the Thelemic demon.Working with Olive is such a contrast from seeing photographs of her and looking at her illustrations. She carries herself with the fragile stature and grace of a silent film star such as Clara Bow or Louise Books. Olive as person is as solid and resilient as the bough of a tree. I borrowed her color palette for this series, and she threw herself into the work completely.
