Illustration Friday - Peace

Peace on Earth

Hand feeding dove which is the symbol of peace. Oil painting with an old world renaissance feel with a timeless subject matter and message.

Did this back in 1998 for my holiday card. It's on 11" x 14" illustration board. The type was done by transferred copier toner applied with a colorless marker blender. Crackling finish added to complete the look. Prints/posters have been selling quite well on art.com. Buy your own here.

I like your cracked texture. It has been years since I've tried that, maybe I'll give it a try again... but with acrylic and baked in the oven. Thanks for the inspiration

Thanks for all your kind comments. I plan on doing more of this crackling texture when I teach it to my Illustration class students at SCAD Atlanta.
