"Colossus"




"Colossus" 36x48 Oil on canvas, 2009, sold.

This guy took me a long time to do but he was well worth it. I took his picture at the montgomery zoo last year, he was covered in sand so I decided to go with a blue/gray scale of color for him adding a bit of brown to represent the sand. Also made him in walking mode by painting sand coming up behind and above him. I named him colossus because the first thing my husband said was he looked like he was made out of chrome. The Xmen character colossus is a large man that turns into chrome when he needs to defend and attack, so therefore I thought it was a perfect fit. Hope you like him.
