they built a life out of hope and flowers

original oil painting on birch panel
14 inches square

 I've been playing with idea of how to paint thoughts and time for a bit now and suddenly it seems to be my main theme when I look around my studio at the work I have in process.  This painting started with a drawing from my (too big for me to complete) project I tried last year and with many many sketches and tossed out ideas came to this image.  The people are wearing clothes of light, air, life, water and earth (there's a very small fifth figure in the garden). If just felt right that anyone who could build a home of hope would wear clothes of made much more that just cloth.


As I have been for some time now I'm one of the artists participating in the wonderful Enormous Tiny Art Show at the Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and as always my work for the show is available online.
