"Temptation of Solitude"

"Temptation of Solitude"


"In the Rhythm of the Season" Solitude and isolation are often things we crave and sometimes fear.  It’s tempting to complain but it can be rewarding if we embrace these circumstances, I often explore these themes in my paintings so this is not new to my approach.

This piece began long before social distancing but all of the sudden this work seems pertinent to the time we are in.  A quiet walk down a path of introspect maybe just the cure we need.

 I have enjoyed my journey to this final version of “Temptation of Solitude.”  I hope you will too!
