I am starting to process my sketches from my trip to Jeju Island, South Korea in 2014. Having recently discovered the ‘Brushes’ app, I am using my iPad to draw my impressions.
Artwork of the week: Little Buddha, 100 x 120 cm, Acrylic and mixed media on canvas. To encourage Japanese children to eat all of their rice the
grains are affectionately called little Buddhas. This painting is my homage to the food of life, in both a physical and spiritual sense. This is a new post for my new facebook fanpage for Roman W. Schatz)
This work on paper is the last painting in my ‘The Flight of Icarus’ series. I have been working with the Icarus myth for a number of years now and I don’t think it will be the last that I have seen of Icarus. As I am heading off to Europe next week, I will concentrate on my photographic exploration of the Witness concept, (see last post) which in a way is a continuation of the Icarus story anyway.
