Pierced by Love’s Arrow

“Pierced by Love’s Arrow” 12X12″ acrylic and egg shell collage on cradled wood panel.

This painting, minus the figure, has been waiting to be finished for a few weeks now.  At a recent library sale I picked up a book on Michelangelo’s work and could suddenly see what to do with this series I’d begun.  I love to play abstractly with paints, but then I start itching to draw.  And what better way to practice drawing than by copying a master’s work.  This young fellow from the Creation of Man looks rather dreamy and love-sick in my version here.  Like most young people he’s still blissfully unaware of the complexities of love.  No doubt soon he will be tested!
