The Vigil

Painting by Rohvannyn Shaw

 

This isn’t one of my most recent works, but one that I hadn’t appreciated enough.  I was looking at it again the other day and I noticed some small details – like the movement of the water – that I really enjoyed looking at.  I always enjoy seeing new things in art that I’ve put away for a while.

Notice how there’s a contrail?  Suddenly, there’s a story there… who is this person, who are they waiting for, what’s that red ribbon above them?  Are they stuck on a primitive world and waiting for rescue?  Or are they just on vacation?
