IVY FOUNTAIN  20"x 24" oil on canvas  $1,800

The mystery and beauty of this painting lies almost hidden behind deep and colorful ivy leaves that cover much of this timeless sculpture. Bacus, the Greek god of pleasure, finds his eternal purpose in feeding this small pool with water, creating a soothing yet alive effect as the water falls and settles into deep shadows. Upon closer study the infinite shades of blue, yellow and green become apparent, adding still more dimension to the depth. Forever still yet moving, the expression cast in stone, the intrigue is in the story that may lie behind this personage. The shadow truly defines the light, the illumined leaves appear even more colorful against deep shadows as the light spills from above.
