YMIR AT REST by ArtOfTheMystic YMIR AT REST by ArtOfTheMystic
graphite on paper - 30 cm x 40 cm - 2012

There was in times of old, where Ymir dwelt, nor sand nor sea, nor gelid waves; earth existed not, nor heaven above, 'twas a chaotic chasm, and grass nowhere.
Then went all the powers to their judgement-seats, the all-holy gods, and thereon held council, who should of the dwarfs race create, from the sea-giant's blood and livid bones.
From Ymir's flesh the earth was formed, and from his bones the hills, the heaven from the skull of that ice-cold giant, and from his blood the sea.

Looks very ghostly, foggy. I really like that effect.

Great drawing. I love organic or 'biomorphic' forms. Plus, when it's used in a landscape and presented in an evocative manner such as this, even better.

thanks Marcel, that's the last drawing finished before I get to our little project. But there was a painting inbetween - still unresolved, so I put it aside for now ......

Thanks Tassos - seems like drawing is going best for me right now. It helps to have a studio without the distraction of a computer.
