solace

aha! mystery solved. it's Amanda Visell!

I found the painting! It's "Double Identity," by Amanda Visell (she seems to not have a site of her own, more's the pity), and it ran as part of a show at the M Modern Art Gallery in Las Vegas last year. The main show was of paintings by Adam West (seriously!), and a bunch of other artists did a side exhibit of Batman paintings that showed their interpretations of the character (and related ones).

Visell's delightful painting, "Double Identity," is below the cut. None of West's paintings are online, but you can see paintings from the side show. (I ganked one, Joey Remmers's "Solace," for the new icon.) Reportedly, the next week's show was on a James Bond theme, but none of that is online. Alas.

For the record, I found this using the new comics blog search engine, Ask Cerebra. She's Cerebro's twin sister, and very useful for items like this.
