Description

ALLEGORICAL
13/100

Sylvia Sylvanus is a water phoenix. Unlike her well-known cousin, she doesn't have the whole "fiery death" thing going on, so her press coverage is minimal, but she's okay with that. Fewer whackjobs knocking on her door looking for feathers that way. Her job is a simple one: descend into a particular body of water on a particular day, and be spat back out, dripping and fresh and sparkling and new several minutes later.

She swears it's allegorical. Something about crying and emotions and the dark night of the soul...but she'd rather talk about the last book she read, or have a nice cupcake. Leave all the psychology to her cousin. He tells a better story, anyway.


ALLEGORICAL is part of the 100 Stories project, begun in September 2015, consisting of 100 un-pre-planned, intuitive paintings on 6x6" canvases. They are largely acrylic, occasionally containing other media here and there (watercolor, inks, collage, graphite, etc.), and are on gallery-wrapped canvas with painted sides so they can be hung straight out of the box.

All of the Stories pieces come wrapped in acid-free bags, packaged with a copy of the story on cardstock. They are one of a kind.

All effort has been made to display accurate color; your monitor settings, image compression, and the way the wind's blowing that day can all affect your display, however. It's pretty darn close, though, from here. It'll look great with your couch.
