Alpha and Omega Mural

 

 
 
 In 2009 I painted this 42" x 10'-0" mural, "Alpha and Omega", on canvas for a church in Richfield, MN. It was painted for an effect responsive to natural daylight conditions but ended up being placed instead in a dimly lit space with no natural light, and thus I could not take decent photos after installation on site. All I have are these studio photos which do not adequately show the effect, but at least give an idea of it. The unique to me method of painting the portraits, and which would show under the right lighting conditions, is that I painted using small dots instead of usual brush work, in order to give the impression that these heads were composed of light particles rather than flesh.
