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.
