Into The Mystic


#44, Into The Mystic, Otherwyze series.
Not every painting in this series conforms to the limitations of language.  Some are never more than the image stories they evoke beyond words.  Such is the case with this piece.  While I am often told of the elephant imagery that strikes some viewers right away, it refuses to take me to that place, though I see the reference.  This is one of my favorite pieces and remains in my own collection.  But it is the subtle imagery; the clowns tucked into the rabbit's ears at the bottom of the imagery, the whispering muses at the top and the 'inner-self' at the center that captivate me. Entitled, Into The Mystic because of the magical qualities it ignites within me, this painting carries me to foreign landscapes and non-existent memories.
