allegorical metaphor


24"x24" oil
The schedule is getting increasingly crazy. I was just invited by Cynthia McBride to participate in the july salon show at McBride gallery in Annapolis Maryland. I am very excited about this! She has one of the finest galleries I've been in. This posted painting is a bit of a departure for me. I was most interested in the light at first. As the piece progressed I was engaged in the dialogue between the foreground figures and the distant landscape. The dome is symbolic of many things and the figures are pondering this scene.

The shows continue and this weekend I'm off to Oxford MD. for a 3 day show. I'm planning a 30"x40" Annapolis boat scene for tomorrow. Can't wait to dig in!

Hey Brian---BIG UP!!!
What exciting news about the McBride Gallery! You're on a roll. Go fer it!

This painting is wonderfully atmospheric and very interesting to look at. Not every picture tells a story, but this one hints at many.
