"COSMIC SERPENT" by Marina Petro
Original oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas

The original painting did not have a serpent. Every time I looked at the painting I felt it still needed something (you might not agree) and I jumped in holding my breath and painted the serpent. She (I assume it's a she) doesn't look too threatening even though she's spitting a little fire. I love the firey section on the upper left with the planet that appears to be being born from it. Hope you enjoy viewing it!
I'm posting an older painting today. I am tired... gave a workshop this morning and am at war with a cold...I am winning and glad for that.
