The First Attempt
This is the image that started it all. After reading the book True Faced I began to look at my surroundings in a different light. I started to slow down a bit and take more in. I started thinking about symbolisim and how it could be used to convey purpose and deep meaning. I also wanted to use some of the most simple, basic and inexpensive materials I could find. This painting (6'w x 5'h), which was created using tempera on cardboard, is my first attempt at a new type of art for me. It deals with the two sides of a person. Not going to go into a detailed description right now. So just take a look. Interpet it. Let me know what it says to you, the viewer. As far as titles go....I have yet to decide.
