Origins I - 3'x5' oil on wood panel
This painting traces our evolution from the watery saline solution to a beautiful verdant world that merges with the clouds. It explores beauty while acknowledging the darkness that is always nearby. Words and brush strokes are expanded and enhanced to create the intricate images in the center of the painting. The transition from dark to light is part of the paradox as the evolution of things seems to evaporate into the air.
