Created for "The Paranormal Humidor" album, the concept for the format of this painting is an old cigar label, so the basic idea is embellished with borders and graphic motifs.
The piece is a collection of day/night and paranormal/spiritual references. The "smoke" coming from the fingers is mana from the palm, extending away from the eye and along the digits, traveling outwards into the ether. Areas of spiritual force grow infinitely outward and backwards into the center frame in alternating bands of flat orange and ribbed red.
