The One About All Things at All Times

Work on the memory paintings continues. These paintings will be featured/available in July's LxWxH. This afternoon's was an ambitious painting:

The One About All Things at All Times

This painting never fails to dazzle me. It's a kind of visual encyclopedia of the Northern Renaissance. I teach a class on Medieval and Renaissance Art, and I offer an automatic "A" to any student who goes to Ghent and visits this painting. (No one has tried it yet.) If you can't fly to Belgium, there's a jaw-dropping hi-res image of the altarpiece, including x-ray images. You can use it to find all the places my memory faltered on this one.
Roughing things out...

Work in Progress

Also, this painting pairs beautifully with a Belgian Ale and The Virgin Queen Soundtrack.
