Mayan on day of the zenith. This was painted for my class on Mesoamerican culture with Thor Anderson at SFAI. The Zenith is when the sun is directly above so it almost appears that nothing casts a shadow. Very special day to the Mayans. And you know I love an excuse to paint jungly shit! Included here are the sketches from its conception. ?

24×36” oil on linen.
