Detail from O/C. At the Gates. work-in-progress, with some ‘effects’ as this painting is still in a state of flux.
Time for myself in the clockwork pattern of life. The changing mind and body roll out a future. The garden of youth reveals a gate to the bigger world, with eternal horizon. The locks open and the barriers fall with a fond ‘adieu’. The wind of change, from within, I step beyond the garden who’s maintenance now rests with others.
Through the garden gates and beyond…
To conform to the ideal of beauty and femininity.
A women still in full flower goes beyond and into another realm, hers, another life.
