"Maya Symphony In Reds and
Jade"
Pastel on Wood
11x14"

This painting was inspired by
the great painter Jean Leon
Gerome. I was fascinated by
his ablity to create great
detailed paintings within the
confines of a small working
surface. Thus is my motivation
for the dimensions. As for the
elements of the painting, I
wanted to talk about the
feeling of isolation the
individual experiences within a
society. This was evident in
the time of the Great Maya
cities as well as today.
