Alma del Corazon

...from 1988. I don't know if this is where my fascination with green began or it simply surfaced here. While awaiting the wood for the next painting to be constructed I fall through imagery like a pinball, buzzed by this and that.
...so here we fall into heart, literally into the jungle green of it and into the symbology of its geography, its waterfalls and central concept of love. The crucifix image was inspired by an old sculpture from the Cloisters. I like its embryonic state, shorn of limbs and head, personality erased by time, leaving only the open, innocent breast.
