I would agree, on so many levels, with Puck in his quote from William Shakespeare's comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Which in this case explores the nature of romantic love in all its unpredictability, fickleness and at times total craziness. The pursuit of love can cause us to do grand and glorious, and yes, very irrational and foolish things. And when its over, and the spell has broken, we grieve, we reflect, we heal, we learn the lesson hopefully, we forgive and then a sort of amnesia sets in as 'spring' returns and we again become ready for a new love. My painting: And the Memory of Her Fades, speaks to a point in this circle of Life. It is a 6x9, acrylic on canvas mounted on gator board. It is available for $100. Interestingly, the work started out with a heaviness of emotion, but ended up being a 'happier' painting that I thought it would be! As is love, painting can be a cathartic experience...
