Desert Sands by mykeamend Desert Sands by mykeamend
36x24 painted in acrylic on wood panel.

A desert landscape with slight nods to many of my favorite painters and other artists (Breughel, Escher, Dali, Riggs, Beksinski, Dore, Whelan and others). Many, many hidden details in this piece - enough that one could find new things for a very long time.

I am nearing completion of my airships and tentacles series - which began with a painting I did for Robert Brown of Abney Park, continued with a piece for Vernian Process, among several other commissions, and will end with a piece for a very OMG author.

Metallics and limited edition giclees are available at mykeamend.com

Travel through the blurred lines of past and future and savour the grand apocalyptic tenor via Desert Sands, a remarkably transporting piece by *mykeamend. ( Suggested by Nevar23 and Featured by snowmask )

I see the Dore aspect amongst the others.  Wonderful.  Wow!  Dali always gives me a true perception of distance, both in mind and physicality.  I aspire to be able to give a true picture of whats in the mind/

Well done! APart from the zeppelin, it is a subtle work, with hidden hints that maybe the current location is not good for landing. ;)

That statue in the background reminds me vaguely of Zeo Zord 3.

This is so cool, and I love how you melded all of those artists' styles with steampunk and Lovecraftian themes :clap:
