"Morning Mist" 24 x 24" acrylic.
It doesn't take much to move me to a different portfolio of work. Seeing all my "Origins" paintings hung in one place (CHOCS in Tulsa through March 2020) made me see once again, the magic of interpretative painting. These paintings are narratives of early man, vaguely aware of the viewer, interacting with nature as a primeval force.
It's a bit more "in your face" in regards to subject matter. The figure at lower right is actually acutely aware of the viewer, and even seems a little oppositional. In contrast, the color scheme is calmer than previous "Origins" paintings, but with a slash of cadmium red to remind the viewer that tension does exist in their world and ours.
