Oracle by Sacra-Anima Oracle by Sacra-Anima
Oil on 20x16 canvas, Available for Purchase.

I came across an old word that used to entice me, Oracle. This word, used as a title of one who communes with Gods, is so deeply mystical in my heart's ear. I wanted to depict the awe and the sacredness of such a being enraptured in divine communion. Entangled in redwood lit by cascading light she hears the voices of those who uphold all. Painting this was a great joy, the colors, the lighting, it all unfolded organically and with ease. May we all know the holy power of listening. 

I was very inspired by the character of Lunafreya of FFXV, while not having played the game, her artwork and concept really touched something for me.

Great job on the water and that tilted face - so difficult to pull that off realistically.

Thank you kindly! I lucked out on the face with the first pass but the water took a few iterations to feel right.

All the feelings you had while painting it shows through, I suppose it does whenever it's from the heart. It's beautiful and does makes me feel awed but also at peace!
