Interesting. You talk about heads (a popular point with the mythical hydra) and these heads seem to be part star as a cool space-y secondary effect. The little cross-shaped twinkle has me wondering, are these madness combat style heads being used for an extravagant multi-purpose? Really liking a lot of your works, and congrats on the 2nd place in the contest, too. Though that's old news... just read about it, definitely neat to get recognizing by the famous Serj.

Thank you sir. That was a quote from the song Antichrist Superstar by Marilyn Manson. The stars weren't intended to be Madness Combat heads, they're actually the highlighted points of the Hydra constellation that can be seen in this. I like to relate this painting to the idea of something being unstoppable. Like a dream, idea, or general surge of inspiration/motivation. I might also say that the spider can be kinda related to the old nursery rhyme of the spider climbing up the water spout. I tend to go pretty abstract with these meanings behind these but it's always fun reading interpretations and sharing whatever background I can and whatever secrets may lie behind them.

Thank you for the review! Also yeah, I really do need to get around to making a new blog post..
