"Poetry in Motion" Painting in Progress




A sculpture of a poet is the focal point of this painting in progress. I have added pears to give movement in this original oil painting. A sheet of music will eventually fill the silver bowl, and euclyptus branches will cascade from within the earth toned vessel. This painting may take me awhile to complete as it is highly detailed, and I work full-time in another profession. Dimension: 11' X 14"

Hi

You have some really great art work!!! Wow! I love the way this one shows a severed being...there is so much one can take away from this.

I think today in society our minds are "very severed" as we are pulled in so many directions that make us forget who we really are.

Thanks for stopping by and for your nice compliment. I love working on detailed paintings and this one is quite a challenge but I am really enjoying the painting process.
