    Description:

    When I started planning this picture, I was thinking about a canvas bisected into light and dark halves, sort of a good vs. evil motif. The photo I used to keep me on track was of a small red airplane flying over a very large mountain in Alaska. I left out the plane and probably should have left out the phallic shape in the center, as well. But then it would have been a pretty boring picture.

    There are a lot of textural effects in the light-colored half and many layers of glaze in the dark.
