Emesis is one of ten paintings that depict the lesser know senses. The painting is done with acrylic and a few white charcoal highlights. It's painted on 2ft x2ft plywood. 

While I was doing this one, I had a few people ask what is this sense. Basically it's the sense of throwing up... Puke didn't make for a very good title so luckily there's a scientific term for vomiting and that is how Emesis got it's title. It made it a little less graphic. 

I really went for the "heavy" look while designing the jewelry in this painting. Because when I'm sick that's how I feel. Heavy and no engery to do anything but lay around. I fell I got a little gem happy, tough. It turned into literally vomiting crystals--I made them green on purpose ;)
