New Art – The First Family of Aradan

The First Family of Aradan
The First Family of Aradan, 22×34, Oil on panel

One of the longest paintings I have ever had on my easel. I have been working on this for over 10 years! I started this so long ago, I was not sure how to paint people with oil paints!

The story behind this is that these is the couple that formed the Aradani Kingdom. Cellendur and Seless left their homelands when their marriage was looked down upon (He was an elf from Alostros and she was a daughter of a Lord of Seahaven). Thier daughter, Alyssa, inherited the throne after them.

New Art – Tesla!

Nikola Tesla 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer,physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.[7]

Tesla gained experience in telephony and electrical engineering before emigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York City. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric power development was involved in a corporate alternating current/direct current “War of Currents” as well as various patent battles.
