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

This is typical of recent work and my interest in painting people integrated with abstraction. It is painted in acrylic on cardboard. I am trying to capture the thoughts and feelings of the person portrayed, so the abstract environment is a reflection of their inner life.

Painting every day

Maintaining concentration day to day is a wonderful thing. Being able to work on a piece with some continuity leads to more rapid growth. I think the work is getting better and deeper in meaning, and am thankful for the opportunity to paint so much.
