I finished this painting a while back and wanted to post this sooner rather than later.  Completed in oil paint on wood panel 18x24 inches I wanted this piece to encompass a glorious sense of light, luminosity and vibrancy while still allowing for interesting brushwork and paint application. Using a limited palette and a strong gestural pose, I strived to capture a sense of "strength" and "reconnecting" with something spiritual, primal and perhaps lost within ourselves. This is one of the earlier pieces in a series I have been working on for exhibition next year. I've included a detail shot here and you can click the images to see them larger. Enjoy!
