Rebirth by k-ee-ran Rebirth by k-ee-ran
one of my first pieces of traditional art in a loooooong time... I'm glad I actually got to post it. :aww:

note:: not a painting! it's a ceramic tile... about 3x3 inches. the design was done in glaze on bisqueware. that's also a digital picture of it done in crappy yellow lighting that cropped off part of the tile..... I know the lines are too thick, but again, it's because this was done on a small tile with only big glaze brushes around, k? :shakefist:

okay, that said... lately I've been really interested in the idea of rebirth and redemption. life arising from the ashes of death. a beauty coming from pain. little bittersweet ironies like that is what inspired this.

Doing something in glaze is tricky. It just does'nt behave like paint. Especially it changes when it's fired. I like it. Nice job.

Indeed. I was really scared that all the reds would smear, they have a tendency to get pretty messy when they're fired... :P

Many thanks! :glomp:

heh, now that makes me think of paintball, and our little "reinsertions" that we do! :giggle: it's basically soldiers coming back to life.... makes me wish we had reinsertions in real combat. :hmm:

i wish i could play paintball... the only time i ever shot a paintball gun wasnt in a game. a friend just doubted my aim, so someone else told him that if it was so bad, that he should be my target and let me try to shoot him. :) needless to say, i got him good. :P
