Mural Skulls Of Lifes Past
Painting - Oil Painting
This is one panel in the mural titled Cahnges of the Seasons. This panel was painted from a still life set up I did where I placed skulls on a mirror and attached some feathers, after that, I used my imagination. I was healing from the death of my father and was thinking a lot about Georgia O'Keeffe's works after the death of her husband , Alfred Stieglitz. I was also feeling very close to nature and thinking of death and rebirth conceptually, combined with thoughts of the great mystery of life. I felt a sense of freedom from constraints and convention as I started to paint on this larger format.
The Mural is titled Changes of the Seasons.
Changes of the Seasons is a mural painting in progress. It presently consists of seventeen 4 x 3 canvassed panels that join together to create an elongated picture image. Each panel is intended to stand alone a pictorial image, as well as being an integral part of the entire mural. The mural will make full circle so that there would be no beginning and no end to the image. This is one panel from the work in progress.
The mural is shown all together on these two web links, in case you would like to see it. I would like to get it permanently installed somewhere. I have shown it twice in shows, but now it needs a home.
