Alchemy and botany- new images of large painting

Posted Sunday, November 27th, 2011

These are recent images of the large painting as it is developing. I have worked on the image of the tree, the reflection of this image and elements hanging from the tree itself.These elements include house- shaped forms that have flowers in, relating to the idea of the Primavera painting and abstract images that I see as motifs depicting elemental forms of energy or potential.Seeing the work in progress an artist friend said it looked like the work of an alchemist and a botanist; I thought this was a good way of describing the work in progress
