I like how that eye in the center is looking at the two figures. It's like this organic plague is taking over this ruined city. A smell of stench comes to mind ha ha. Definitely one of my favorite pieces on this site.

Wow! This is more than fantastic! I love your oil paintings and the way you use them. Excellent title, moody post apocalyptic landscape and all that. Just wow!

Thanks!  I've really been enjoying painting lately! I think this is going to be album cover for my band Tsepesch, which is what the title is from.  We just finished recording.

Fantastic! Is Tsepesch a new band, or has it been active for some time? 
Anyway, when you unleash the album to the public I would love to hear something.

We're hoping to put it out on vinyl, so I'll send you a record when it's done!

Oh, my! That would be terrific. We are planing with Arrested Army to finish the album this year, and if that happens I'll send you a copy.

Reminds me of War of the Worlds. All of the red roots, and the smokey feel. Great job.

Thanks!  I don't see any red, but definitely some sort of roots and perpetual war. I'm glad you like it.
