Spirit

22.5 x 40.5" tempera on primed canvas

I reworked this painting many times, scraping off one layer after another of tempera, and then throwing more paint. In the buildup of layers, subtle shapes & hints of color appeared, and there was depth & movement in the paint, as if magical. Each time I look at it, I see something different & fascinating, and it never fails to calm me.
