Bifrost by Wolfgang Schweizer

digital painting, 4125x3300px, 300dpi
"In Norse mythology, Bifröst About this sound pronunciation (help·info) (Bifrost in Scandinavia) or sometimes Bilröst, is a burning rainbow bridge that reaches between Midgard (the world) and Asgard, the realm of the gods. The bridge is attested as Bilröst in the Poetic Edda; compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and as Bifröst in the Prose Edda; written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, and in the poetry of skalds. Both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda alternately refer to the bridge as Asbrú (Old Norse "Æsir's bridge").

According to the Prose Edda, the bridge ends in heaven at Himinbjörg, the residence of the god Heimdallr, who guards it from the jötnar. The bridge's destruction at Ragnarök by the forces of Muspell is foretold. Scholars have proposed that the bridge may have originally represented the Milky Way and have noted parallels between the bridge and another bridge in Norse mythology, Gjallarbrú. (wikipedia)öst

Ginnunga Gap

Ginnunga Gap by Wolfgang Schweizer
Ginnunga Gap, a photo by Wolfgang Schweizer on Flickr.
"Ginnungagap appears as the primordial void in the Norse creation account:
Ginnungagap, the Yawning Void ... which faced toward the northern quarter, became filled with heaviness, and masses of ice and rime, and from within, drizzling rain and gusts; but the southern part of the Yawning Void was lighted by those sparks and glowing masses which flew out of Múspellheim.

In the northern part of Ginnungagap lay the intense cold of Niflheim, and to the southern part lay the equally intense heat of Muspelheim. The cosmogonic process began when the effulgence of the two met in the middle of Ginnungagap."

The painting is a mix of photography, digital painting and acrylic painting.
I painted with acrylic colors onto a canvas print of a digital painting. Then I painted onto a photo of the acrylic painting with a digital painting program.
