Trenti (musgoso, simiot) For Future Upcoming Show
(acrylic on panel 8 X 10)
The Trenti comes from the folklore of Spain (Cantabria). It is an imp creature that is annoying but not malice. It is very difficult to see because it lives deep in the forest and resembles mushrooms, leaves, and moss. Its most distinguishing features are a completely black face with green eyes. This creature tends to stay away from humans but it does like to jump out of the bushes and scare innocent walkers. I wanted this creepy illustration to mesmerize the viewer, so I made the Trenti stare directly at the spectator.
