torch-wielding mob

This piece of canvas has a long history, it began about 13 months ago. It started as an experiment in materials, I stretched and primed a very coarse, Victorian-patterned material suitable for curtains with no idea what I was going to paint on it. It's gone through about four different paintings until it arrived at this theme, which I'm very happy with! It has a very rich paint surface that only 50 coats of expressively applied paint can create. A torch-wielding mob chasing a terrorizing beast. This is about the biggest I can get a painting in my home studio, it's 64 by 48.
