New Painting - Fear

-Donato Giancola 

Here's a new one finished this past month as a cover in a series of novels by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.  The first image is that of Scholar, followed by Princeps, which I posted here a few months ago.  These novels are a great read as I love the protagonist and the way Modesitt has created the magic in this world.  I see it as a little like the world of Napoleon meets Psionics.

The fire embers in Fear play off the contrast of the snow/ash flakes in Princeps. I imagine them as sister paintings.

Otherwise my life is as I usually say, 'Head down, busy painting.'
