Oil on Panel with Gold Leaf. 14" x 17"
"I strive not to imitate actual places but to recreate the universal idea of landscape and time.” Painted in three divisions, symbolizing "past, present and future lives." The center represents the current reality of life, seen in relatively strong, clear colors. By contrast, the colors in the adjoining sections are muted and more ethereal.
