Tree Cathedral – a portrait of Charlotte North Carolina

This painting was begun to remember the ocean, where I lived, on Edisto Island, for two years. But then this red ball appeared in the picture. It is about myself, and as Nietzche described the task we humans face, in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, it is to be child-like, and, as he described it, “A wheel rolling out of its own center.”

Lowcountry Carolina meets Niki de Saint Phalle:)

Oil on birch. 12x36 Homage to Niki de St Phalle

This is a painting inspired by the Lowcountry of South Carolina, Edisto Island in particular. It began as the St. Pierre River which is at the end of Peter’s Point Road, off National Scenic Byway SC 174. Then I got enamoured with Niki de St Phalle’s work and out this came! It is oil on wood, 12×36 in cradled birch. I think she is finished…what do you think?
