Painting - Mixed Media On Canvas
This is a mixed-media work of acrylic on canvas. The background is a beautiful fractal vision, giving great depth and interest. In the foreground is a painting of a beautiful African woman, with eyes so mysterious, the work was called, 'The Secret.'
The figure is reminiscent of the quote from The Alchemist: It was the pure language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only women in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it than anything in the world.
And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.
The painting is heavily textured and done with many layers of acrylic paint and varnish, giving it great depth and a three dimension effect.
All works hold an international copyright.
