"Life Extentions"

'Life Extensions" Posted by Picasa This was - and still may be - a prelim to a canvas work in acrylics... the idea was to present an extension of life propagating from an unlikely source.... the original would have a figure in it, a pregnant woman tending the grounds, but the problem of presenting a viable tree over which she could safely walk to this 'island' prevented it taking place... however, there is a variation which may be rendered, taken from the shelf perspective, with the woman tending the outgrowth area instead of the island itself - perhaps theme/titling that "Continuance"... of course there is metaphoric relating in this, even as there is otherwise a 'natural' landscape shown...
