PROPHET AND LANDSCAPE- a tentative title.  I continually change titles and dates based on new perspectives- probably will drive some curator nuts!!

Now that "Shot, Shot Again" is finished and framed I have begun this work. It is generally laid out on two birch panels using acrylic and carbon pencil over relief prints.  The resulting diptych (2 panel work) may have a video side panel with a relief sculpture (seen below) bonded to it. Working on this mixed media painting, I think of "The Prophet" a book of writings by the Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran-  "Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself".....I generally work in a progressive way- building  on ideas that develop as I paint and sculpt. At this time this work is 48" x 84" (122 x 213 cm.) In the future who knows!!

PROPHET AND LANDSCAPE is finished but is larger and is now titled EARTH SPIRITS DANCING
