Oil painint of the Anotomical Hand on Black Marble by Meddling-With-Nature Oil painint of the Anotomical Hand on Black Marble by Meddling-With-Nature
Chiro on Nero

This piece as well as its companion piece is done with oil paint on black nero marble. (redundant I know.) The process for getting oil to adhere to such a slick surface involved etching out the initial design with a carbide etching tool, after this was completed oil successfully bonded to the surface. The hands themselves are designed from several different photographs of cadavers. The result is a reasonably anatomically correct averaged composite.

I know the feeling! So for heavens sake keep me in mind when you hit it big and I will paint you whatever you want on your wall! The work for illustrating anatomists is just not pouring in like it was a few hundred years ago. ;)

If I will get rich one day get ready to paint a lot! Actually I'd like to become a pathologist, so maybe, just maybe I'll have enough money then.

Maybe if I could get off my ass and start showing again soon you will! I do love to travel, and I am always looking for venues! ;) Thanks for the kind words.
