The Dark Side of the Force

Signed
Oil on panel
10 x 8 inches

Darth Vader, what a badass; but even this villain of villains’ had to start somewhere. Here Vader is depicted beginning his training in the force by levitating a sphere. Perhaps Vader’s training goes hand in hand with artist Rodney O’Dell Davis’s own painting journey, this being his first painting. O'Dell hones his technique by painting a sublime sphere with the dreaded alizarin crimson, a pigment feared by many painters; a challenging and ambitious task indeed. As Vader’s and Rodney’s powers grow, they will become unstoppable. Pretty soon Vader will be choking out haters left and right with his force powers, while O’Dell will be banging out masterpieces. One day they will rule the galactic empire and take over ze world.
