VII: Sebastian

Rendition of the hanged man tarot card, with Sebastian in the classical
pose, suspended upside down from one foot. In this version, he is held in place by
vine-like branches before an open gate. A red mark traces all the way down his body.

This is one of the first gouache paintings I did. Also one of the most ambitious. I like it...pretty well. It's a little messy and the colors aren't exactly to my tastes.

But the Hanged Man is one of my favorite story moments---reflection, surrender, revelation. Sebastian is particularly suited to it.
