Of Course

Of Course, 2011
Oil on Canvas
24" x 48"

A combination of 2 previous paintings: Adam and Even and the Astronomer. This is an unfinished version of the painting. I came upon this title as it serves a couple of purposes. First is the impression that these figures are going to a specific place and are "on course" to it (hence the telescope). Aside from that, I feel that this image (and the others like it) are the natural progression of the large Adam and Eve painting that I had made years ago. I had one of those "a-ha, of course" moments when I came up with this configuration. When I started this picture, I struggles with the palette selection and finally liked the idea that the color of the figures has been stripped out in the same way that color vanishes when the lights go out.

Although this version is more fleshed out, I still hope to do a much larger version in the near future.
