Pondering on thoughts before responding with a strong sense of personal identity, physically and spiritually. The figure is ageless, masculine, active and intense energetically. Looking directly at the viewer, unwaveringly. A stick, or staff, gives stability and strength as well as making a connection to the ground. A response to this piece can indicate that you either need to ‘lighten up’, or pause more to give more consideration to the consequences of your thoughts, words and actions.
With Due Consideration is my latest painting - acrylic on canvas. It is in a NEW gallery on my website called Figures. I have decided to do far more art incorporating the human form for a number of reasons. Firstly, the human form is interesting and challenging to draw and paint. It keeps your skills honed. Secondly, the human figure has so many attributes that are ideal for expressing the symbolism of sacred geometry, colours and spiritual messages.
