...and semester two begins.

While visiting Rome during winter break I became very inspired by all of the religious artwork there.  I'm intrigued by all the repeating themes, the storytelling, and the epic quality they possess, but most of all I'm interested in the propaganda of it all.  I'll be using a lot of religious themes and imagery in my artwork throughout this semester but I will be changing the main focus a bit.  I plan on blending a few different religion's gods, idols, icons and stories into one painting while maybe placing them in a modern setting.  I'll be researching all of the major world religions, their artwork and their history for this project.  I'm just getting started but I'm excited to see where this takes me.
