Eden I – 40×60″ Acrylic Painting on Wood Panel

This painting came from a dream about the relationship between a man and a woman and the potentially perilous circumstances we find ourselves in these days. I had been painting pictures of men and women before this, but had not situated them in a garden…which leads quickly to “Eden”. But the original dream was simply a garden, a place of wonder and fascination, of whimsy and creatures alive and moving and interested in us.

The idea of an everyman and woman has been with me for a long time. The colors are reflective of their personalities, and their relationship is implied in the stances and positions within the work.

Painted on a panel that is 1.5″ deep. The edges are painted in a dark slate color, not shown in photos below.

The Woman from Naples – Acrylic on Illustration Board

This painting was one of the first paintings I did to integrate an abstract background with a figure. It was an experiment to use a limited palette and at the same time to use stylized shapes in both the background and the figure to describe a woman sitting in a room. I am very interested in using a pre-designed, arbitrary, set of colors for a painting, instead of relying on natural colors. This technique lends itself to finding unusual and unexpected color combinations.

The woman is in a straightforward, frank and mannered pose. The original source was 1930’s era photos specifically intended for use by artists.

Original painting is acrylic on illustration board. Signed on front and dated on back. Unframed. Ships in a box.
