New Art- I know why-Original oil painting

‘I know why’

16″ x 20″

Oils on flat canvas panel. Will need framing or mounting for hanging

Will be available on my web site in the 2010 gallery

Here is (the part of) a poem that inspired the work:

What dreams we have and how they fly

Like rosy clouds across the sky;

Of wealth, of fame, of sure success,
Of love that comes to cheer and bless;
And how they whither, how they fade,
The waning wealth, the jilting jade —
The fame that for a moment gleams,
Then flies forever, — dreams, ah — dreams!

~Paul Laurence Dunbar

I worked on this painting for many weeks…a little at a time. It’s self-portrait, a mirror and an explanation of my observations of self awareness. It’s a visual poem.

I hope you enjoy the work.

Pray for Peace,
