Solitude





















When I was a kid, I saw the Superman films with Christopher Reeve and was literally lifted to a new level of imagination. Whatever your feelings about the films now, they were groundbreaking. Not only in the area of special effects, but in opening the door to the superhero genre that continues today.

In this painting, the son of the planet Krypton stands in the cold solitude of the North Pole. His Fortress of Solitude bristles its crystal spires in the distance. He's taking a breather from the hectic business of saving human beings from themselves.

This is fan art.
