Yes, folks, I originally spelled “The Sphinx” wrong, looked it up, and preferred the wrong spelling. It’s just more cool to me spelled my way, and, you could say it reflects my alternative version.
This is the 14th in this series, and if you don’t know, the parameters are that I work exclusively from the imagination (no references, no photos, no sources…), and that I have a maximum of 3days to produce a piece.
I think this is my favorite one because I never foresaw something quite like this. There’s a healthy mix of expressionism, surrealism, abstraction, intense color, and painterly brushwork.
If you zoom in it looks like this:
Here’s all 14 pieces in the series so far in a slideshow.
Or, if you prefer, you can see them in a click-through gallery:

Thanks for checking out my art and my blog. Check back in a few days to see what’s next.
And if you like my art and art criticism, and would like to see me keep working, please consider making a very small donation. Through Patreon, you can give $1 (or more) per significant new work I produce, and cap it at a maximum of $1 a month. Ah, if only I could amass a few hundred dollars per month this way, I could focus entirely on my art. See how it works here.
Or go directly to my account.
Or you can make a small, one time donation to help me keep on making art and blogging (and restore my faith in humanity simultaneously).
One thought on “New Art: (#14) The Sphynx”
I like it for all the reasons you said, plus the colour, which is like it’s been taken from a naturalistic beach scene!
