Unforseen Dangers - oil painting

in art •  4 months ago 


I was intending to keep my Steemit artwork updates in order, but, I couldn't resist sharing my latest painting.

"Unforseen Dangers", Leo Plaw, 30 x 24cm, oil on canvas

Sometimes it is not what is hiding in the dark which is the threat, but what is in plain sight and often overlooked.

The presence of the snake and the body language of the figure captured the title PERFECTLY * ___ *

Curated it for OCD external curations also, at Twitter :D :D :D

Thank you very/much/spider for the reshares here and on Twitter. =)

I don't mind if they're in order or out of order ;D

Plain sight is the best place to hide coz no one ever looks there, and apparently this guy wasn't expecting a snek D:

Ha ha, yes, plain sight is best. =)
Especially if there are snakes around.

Really good painting!!!!!!! WOW!!! :-D

Thank you Caroline!

I´m baffled. This looks incredible!

What is confusing?

not confusing. It´s astonishing

@leoplaw es una pieza impresionante. Me debato entre el miedo y la vergüenza como emoción que dispara. Me alegra te decidieses mostrarla antes

Muchas gracias @joslud! Soy contento de oír que la pintura le hace hacer preguntas.

I stumbled upon the opposite also: What was beautiful was right in front of me but I walked by many times before I saw it.

Your paintings are very realistic. They make me uneasy, though. But's actually a compliment, yes? :)

Is it the poison of being threatened what the naked human feels?

I would like to know, if you can recommend a drawing/painting from you for my newest blog where I need an expression of a "dark force". Can you provide me with a motive of yours? So I can integrate it and put your name under it.

Have a nice evening in ... Österreich? Right?

Missed your work, Leo. Disturbing, arresting, powerful stuff!
