A new retablo, just completed. It's a monochrome and reversed version of this retablo I completed late last year. In the fashion of my last few posts, I guess the Christ figure should be called 'El Cristo del Gran Sello de los Estados Unidos de América', as the Christ figure is crucified on the partial remains of the obverse of the Great Seal. I've used the symbol on the reverse of The Great Seal many times, so I thought it would be good to tackle the more known symbol on the front. You can see past versions I tried here and here.
This painting is very much about moving overseas, as have been the last several works I've completed over the past month. Also, I've just about completed a work titled 'Checks and Balances'.
