Different Kind of Hurt

Posted Jul 16, 2009, 7:36:02 PM

I've had this image brewing in my mind for quite some time. I wanted to show the relationship between Wisdom and his youngest son, Koreken. Having the ability to ease pain by combining pressure points and positive energy, Koreken is seen holding his hand over his father's heart in this piece. However, at this point in his life, Wisdom has already experimented much pain, the type that is more mental than physical. Thus the title, "different kind of hurt" cannot be cured by a mere touch.

    Very sweet picture, I love the idea behind it. Are you going to develop it further, do you think?

      I would like to paint it one day. Maybe give it some type of background as well. I was influenced by another artist to do more sketching because I've been all about writing the story. But thanks for the comment. More to come soon!
