"Beside the Fishpools of Heshbon"

Olivia Land12" x 24"

Certainly an outstanding piece by anyone's standards. I have been told that Ms. Land at one time worked for Walt Disney illustrating books of myth and fantasy, but even by early Disney standards, this one seems a little too warped to have come from the ranks of a Disney employee. There is so much exceptional about this painting - the colors, the unnatural position of the fingers on the figure's right hand, the bizarre heart-shaped abdomen, the grotesque upper torso and breasts, not to mention the extremely skillful execution of the foliage, water, and mountains in the background. Along with the earlier "Peepshow Nightmare", another recent favorite.
