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!
