Title: Nephilim Rising - huge 3x4’ acrylic on canvas
Post by: FoxyBlue on July 23, 2018 07:58:12 AM


I had a huge canvas sitting around collecting dust and decided to finally put it to use. I called her ‘Nephillim Rising.’ Its a HUGE painting. I’ll try and add other pics for reference but when I upload from my phone, if I upload more than one, they get distorted on here for some reason!

Anyhow, here’s the poem I wrote for her:

Nephilim Rising

She rose from the earth
With grandeur and strength.
The mountains shook with delight
As she took form.
She was new to this world
And yet as ancient as time.
With wisdom in her eyes
And a soul bursting with purpose,
She drew in a deep breath,
Opened her heart,
And set forth to undo the damage
Caused by her ancestors.

Wow! This piece is beautiful. I love her freckles and the wisdom in her eyes from the poem certainly does show. :)

Great job!  The portrait and the lightning storm over her head are my favorite aspects of this piece and I also like the curvature of the mountain range and surrounding earth framing her.  Cool poem too.  That is one large painting indeed.

I had to look Nephilim up too; I was thinking the word was from Norse mythology, but, nope, they're biblical.  I be getting rusty!

what a striking painting! there is something about her eyes, lips and those freckles that make this painting feel so real.

 I know the face and the owl and the mountains are amazing but that lightning is the background is what solidifies it for me. Amazing!

I haven't been on craftster for a while and I am so impressed with how much more skillful you are than you were a few years ago. Keep it up. This particular piece is gorgeous!
