Realm of the Water God

“Realm of the Water God”
Acrylic on Canvas – June 2017

Bride of the Water God is a Korean comic or manhwa that I have loved for several years ever since I first saw my students reading it in Korea. I’ve read it myself, and think it’s one of the most beautiful comics I’ve ever had the privilege of viewing. That being said, they recently have made a Korean drama that is loosely based upon the story line. I say loosely because I see very few similarities. However, I wanted to paint something based upon my thoughts of the manhwa and the magical surrealism of it before I actually dove into the drama itself (which I’m watching as I type this). I’ve got high hopes but low expectations if that makes any sense. Fingers crossed.
