About this painting
This was my first genuinely surrealist painting. I was tasked with painting something around the theme of 'blue'. I thought that blue blood would be an obvious choice, exactly because blood is not blue. In my minds eye I instantly saw a hand, speared with an arrow, one of a storm of arrows raining down from the sky, and I could hear the rush of water, tumbling like a waterfall into a rock pool.

Thus, the idea was formed. After that instantaneous concept, I simply staged and painted it.

Technical details
The flesh painting uses a variety of colourations, warm and cold, in rough patches to add tone and form. The rough waterfall appears frothy and translucent in front of the relatively smooth but forboding sky.
