MANY POINTS OF VIEW
Oil on canvas, 48 x 36 in., 2002
This piece illustrates figuratively the idea that there are many different view points:
A woman looking straight ahead and a profile looking downward sits at a table in front of a yellow window. The pink window trim and yellow form arms around a fruit bowl on the table.
The floor under the table is also sand at a shoreline. A blue bird stands on the beach.
The bird's head is also a fish. Another fish (in pink) swims under water, showing the fish's point of view.
Looking down on a bird shows another point of view. The brown bird resembles wood grain on the lime dock...table...floor. The door and pink window bring you back inside the house. But the red sun and tiny bird in flight take you far away.
There is one vanishing point.
(It all started from looking at my window and door and from watching a bird drink water from a puddle.)
