"Flowering Spade" is another work from my new series. Painted in oil on wood panel it touches on several classic themes in art, reflection, desire and purification. Confinement in our lives is often self-imposed and can be outwardly defining in nature. How do we begin to replace inherent preconception with truth and set ourselves free?
At the time I was painting this I was listening to the music of one of my favorite singer-songwriters Sean Hayes. The title is also a 'nod' to his moving song by the same name.
