Digging For Gold

Finally got this piece to some kind of finish.  Seemed to take forever.  I chipped away at it on and off for the past 5-6 weeks.  As you can see below this started off as something quite different.  I did some thumbnails went for the original composition and then got worried about it.  So I changed it all up.  I tried to borrow a lot from Caravaggio's 'The taking of Christ' for the colours and light. The mud started off smaller but then I took some licence with it . Could have kept picking at it but need to move on.
