About this painting
This is a second version of a painting from late 2006, a painting about the magic, and vital creative spark of art, and oil painting in particular.

A looming figure like a magician, casts a spell over an imaginary scene. A seraph starts as a cave painting, transforms into a Raphael homage and then abstract forms. On the left wall a cubist representation of Dirck van Baburen's "The Procuress" is stabbed by arrows from the mental storm that pits blue against red.
