Seems as good a place as any to hang my work and talk about them.

“Dalila” from about three years ago, I am still proud of this one. Started as a small study:

dalilastudy I was reading Robert Pirsig’s “Lila” at the time, which dealt with mental illness and its role in a person’s life, be it short-term or permanent and how mental breakdown’s can be a positive thing, at least in an escape from a mental situation that someone has been entrenched. They come out, or not. I don’t know where they go, or how it straightens things out, but at the time a beautiful friend of mine had a breakdown, and she was changed. Walked away from the green sun of creative awareness, but still went on to find happiness. The cutting of hair, the loss of tresses, was also a subject in her paintings.
