“The Rose and the Traitor”

This piece was a commission in the style of a classic oil painting, which I’ve never attempted before.  It took about a full 24 hours (or more) from start to finish, and has been keeping me occupied for a few days!

I still love Homestuck.

Edit:  YES FOR THE LAST TIME, THAT IS GUY FIERI.  You’d have to read Homestuck to understand why.

I’ll leave you my bottles, babe 
Ill wrap them in wool and lay 
them down in your crib 
I’ll miss what might have been 

I’ll leave you my swords and shades 
I’ll put all my good into one place 
and ironys aftertaste 
will rock to you sleep, my babe 

When you watch what we made for you 
when you see what we gave for you 
when you read between the lines you’ll find 
We waited our lives for you 

But in seconds my time will end 
I count every breath my friend 
and when space invades again 
we’ll light the way, my baby 

so when the light catches blade 
when the time comes, do not be afraid 
follow the path we’ve made 
follow the path we’ve made
