Landscape With A Figure
This surrealistic image was created while I was at the Academy of Art.
My instructor did not like that I had a vision in my head that I was
shooting for and asked me to change it every class. I understand now
why but at the time it was difficult for me. I told him it was going to be a
body of water... he said "cool", turned the painting on its side and said
"change it".Finally I ended up with this painting with intense imagery
and I just let go. It was liberating as I continue to place standards on
myself walking down a creative path unsure of the destination. This oil
on Canvas painting is 30" x 45" and has a 2" edge that is painted as
well. It was painted in 1985
