Studio Notes: Church of the poisoned mind. A Studio Flashback

Church of the Poison Mind_US Senate 2010 Carl Gopalkrishnan

Watching the historically sad outcome of the impeachment of Donald Trump this week, I looked up from my desk in my studio and saw my little triptych titled The Church of the Poison Mind, which I painted in 2010 when the US Senate was beginning to split into an 1861 time machine.  It seemed worth revisiting a decade later. I used Culture Club's song Church of the Poison Mind as a soundtrack while painting this. The stick figures are a little hard to scan, and are gold leaf 22K. In fact a scan doesn't capture the colour which is a deep forrest green tinted with a warm umber.
