Mars Rising

Mars Rising 20 x 16 Acrylic on canvas.

Mars is also known as the God of War in Roman Mythology. In Greek or Western Astrology he is known as Aries. In Greek literature, he often represents the physical or violent and untamed aspect of war. He also represents aggression.

I enjoy reading about different mythologies and this is why I painted Mars. At first I planned on making this a realistic looking painting but then the Expressionist in me just went crazy. So it ended up more as an Expressionist painting. I really let loose with the hair.
