Life Series

08 May 2008
Life Series 1, 11, 111,and 1v are large paintings (60? x 72?) depicting what I believe to be the “normal” prescribed evolution of most human beings.

They begin alone and with that “aloneness” comes the question “who am I?” - with the reply eventually, “I am, who I am”.

Inevitably, they fall in love and their question of ‘who am I’ becomes ‘ who are we?’  ‘Are we a couple?’  do I lose myself or do I become something bigger by being with you.  Life Series 11 show a couple united but still there is space between them suggesting togetherness but also independence.

Couple-hood inevitable leads to parenthood- depicted in Life Series 111.  The couple - now parents - with a child between them- adding to their “couple-hood” - but also dividing it.

Life Series 1v depicts the final life stage - death.  No longer are there any questions- one is who one is- and once again, they are alone…or maybe not….

Rimsky on the lawn

08 May 2008
Here’s rimsky on the lawn — he’s nine - a pretty good boy, unless something is left on the counter  - in his life time , he’s had probably 80 sticks of butter.  Once he ate the whole Thanksgiving turkey - or most of it  - we didn’t tell the rest of the family until after the “feast” hee hee.

Commission finished...

18 May 2008
Here is a 54? x 54? painting using iron oxides from the Susquehanna river -  my client saw a small square image (one of 37) and asked if I could enlarge it.  She loves trees …. this reminds me of the promise of spring - the hope of getting through the winter - of knowing - that everything will once again  - bloom.
