Storyteller (2015 Muse)

Storyteller (2015 Muse)

Give us birds in flight, Miracle Man.  Give us flights of fancy!  The big tent show is just about to begin!

Every year, driven by superstition I suppose, I do a portrait of my Muse.  (S)he is never the same two years in a row.  This is the first year (s)he wished to be seen in a male aspect.  I find it fitting and well overdue. 

I am also a huge fan of vintage Ray Bradbury.  In the back of my mind, I was thinking about the lightning rod salesman in Something Wicked This Way Comes while working on this.  I wondered if he ever just got tired of gloom and doom and simply wanted to bring wonder?

By tradition, each year's muse is limited to a print run of 30.  This year we are splitting up the run between two mediums. This piece is available for licensing.

“Well, what tongue does the wind talk? What nationality is a storm? What country do rains come from? What color is lightning? Where does thunder go when it dies?”
- Ray Bradbury
