Mark, I love it that you left it here. This has a nice and beautiful light. I heard a lecture from a young artist from NY at Tyler once speaking how he went from making real tight paintings to looser ones. He said the reason was Picasso, he found a certain life in the way he painted leaving things undone, unfixed, like a person still growing...

These remind me of Rubens (as in Peter Paul), when he painted the multitudes of heaven, layered in stack upon stack of bodies, radiating from the figure of Christ, or what have you. Some other Italian painters did this, but their names escape me.

Reminds me of Correggio's assumption.

Mark,
The first close up of your drawing reminded me of Emily's Family Geodes.
ON this sight the light looks really bright. The outer edges are dark and the faces in the bottom lefts and rights made me sad. The plane made me think of 9-ll combined with the dark and the faces-were you going for the loss of all those lives? and in the light the One who absorbed them?
Overall I had a powerful emotional responce.
