Checkmate - original Raven painting by Deb Kirkeeide

6x6 Oil on Linen

I had this idea to try for an encaustic piece and decided to try working it out on a small scale. In oils. Not sure why I chose that route - maybe it's comfort level. I've also started the encaustic and have found to a lot harder to control than I thought. I will post that at a later date, when I finish it.

I like how this little one turned out. I have no idea why I chose the checkered background. It would be intriguing if I had some deep, mysterious subconscious statement I was trying to make. Most likely I just saw one somewhere and thought it would be fun to try. I may try more.
