Human Landscape

2008
Acrylic on canvas
20" x 16"


Painted and overpainted, this piece started as one thing, reached middle age as Image 2356 - which you can see in an earlier post - and for the moment has paused here.  I find it extraordinarily interesting how the paintings, when painted over, can take on a completely new style or mood.  There is a person under there, still (I haven't yet been able to divorce myself from painting people) but the colours are masking, hiding, protecting him from the viewer.  I think I will let the painting pause here for a while.
