I started this one way back in the spring of 2020 sometime before my son passed. For a long time I couldn't touch it - but here it is finally finished. It reminds me of one of my favorite poems: "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost.

I finally finished up this canvass this week. This painting and the last seem to be from me working through issues - political and personal. BUT - I do have an idea in mind that will be "less weight".
"Nurturing Hope" - 14" X 18"
This is a somewhat restricted palette -
burnt sienna and iridescent gold for the skin-tones with just a bit of added white; and burnt sienna and dioxazine purple for the shading. There is also just a bit of carbon black with the purple for the darkest areas. And finally, iridescent pearl for the flame.

I'm just starting to get into the painting mood again. This first piece is in response to the election results. I guess a statement piece is a good way to get "back into it".
""I-AM-BACK (the Phoenix)
> the US coming back from the last four years of awful politics
> the world coming back from the pandemic
> and me coming back from the loss of my son
BTW - they did a DNA test and found markers for an early heart attack - which is what happened.
Still no art league meetings in person; but I do have two more canvasses started.
