“Keeper of the Cosmic Gate”
oil on canvas – 46 × 56 inches
This painting is the third of the Gate keepers. The story of the cosmic gate is the place of all beginnings. The book of the Akashic Records,where all knowledge of all creation within the universe. It is said that all things began within the"milky way" and that the dolphins and whales hold the ancient information of our planet.
Technical info: All the writing(language that developed through the series) in the book of knowledge is written in liquid gold and the triangular open box (atop of rocks on the right) is painted in liquid silver. This was the first time I used actual metallic minerals in a painting. In the proper lighting, they reflect amazing light.
