The background is a light sky blue with a touch of violet near the bottom. The upper left corner has a solid orange sun with sunrays surrounding it. They are composed of thick dabs and smears of orange and light violet paint. Icarus is flying right into the sun. The upper right portion of the canvas has a small square stargate. It is rotated on a forty-five degree angle with a black background filled with stars. A firery red flaming comet is streaking out of the stargate to the middle of the scene. The left side of the piece has a large off-white pointed mountain. Inside the outline of the mountain is a flying lightning bolt with a flaming tail, Monty Milne's star symbol, a Loch Ness-like serpent swimming on top of the horizon of the ocean, and smaller burnt umber colored mountains that have a piece of the Stonehenge rocks on top. The bottom of the canvas has an ocean scene made of very dark blue and green curved waves flowing to the lower right side of the scene. An ancient boat with a sail floats in the middle. The right side of the canvas has large purple and violet mountains with flat tops. Atlas holding a white boulder, the Excaliber sword, and a surreal clock sit on top. There is also an american flag motif, and old cave painting, and a Christian cross decorating the mountains. The very lower right corner has a small yellow colored beach with a mermaid laying face-down. << Back to Oil Painting Gallery
