New Work: The Figure

This painting came about from a vision I had during a recent medical procedure...while lying face down, draped with a white blanket on a not-too-comfortable table (and wishing I could escape): I could see my reflection in a wall painting--the lights were dim and my eyes were shining like stars: all in the glass. Let's just say the painting changed from that initial view, although the dreaming/angel figure of a woman remains at the bottom of the painting...she's transcended into a feeling of absolute peace, tranquility and love. That's what we artists do: take an event from the world around us, and translate it into our own language--into something 'more'.'

  1. I like your statement about what artists do. Very well stated. Very fine painting, too.
