Chicken Lady Goes to Egypt

5 Oct

I mentioned this painting in my horus blog entry earlier this week and was given permission to show it (it’s unlikely the recipient will see this). I didn’t get a great photo but this was one of my favorite paintings to work on. I loved researching Egypt and applying the costumes to my characters. The characters on the bottom are Horus and Anubis.

This summer a client asked me to create an Egyptian themed painting using my characters as the subject. I am not posting this particular painting because it’s going to be a wedding gift. However while working on her painting I became interested in researching Egyptian gods and goddesses. It became apparent that I wanted to paint a few of these deities in my style. I find it fitting since I’ve been told that my ornaglyphs look like either hieroglyph’s or ancient Mayan art. After doing these 5 paintings I think I’d like to try doing more deities from civilizations all over the world (when I have some free time).
