One of my favorite quotes is by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
L'amour est la plus universelle,
la plus formidable, et
la plus mysterieuse
des energies cosmique.
It was the inspiration for my latest painting, which I plan to enter in the Craven County show tomorrow. This started out as a drippy abstraction, then I added in the words and then created the face from the whole melange. Its hard to see the colorful abstract detail in the small post here, so I included a detail shot to try to convey it. It has good energy.
Update: decided to wait and work on this some more before entering it in a show... I like its energy but its still a little too dark.
