Abstract Figurative Oil Painting: Third In A Series
The solo figure is compelling to me. In this series, I'm painting the figure alone, yet connected to and a part of the landscape. I'm thinking about the existential issues we live with: creating meaning, free will/choice, responsibility, the fragility of life, and the fleetingness of time. I'm moving toward a more abstract figurative way of painting. One could call these "existential paintings".
