This piece is one of three, “blacksmith-builder-tailor”. They are all acrylic on wood, and were done as an exercise in “Minshar”. The point was to portray some “guild professionals” from a list. I had a total creative block, but the urge to make a god out of the blacksmith helped me break through. I’m very happy with this piece, especially since it includes manly men, that are so rare in my repertoire. Truth be told, I liked it so much, that these three are hanging in my house, in a very prominent location.
