A collage of "Shadow Series" Studies

It was late on a sunny afternoon one day last summer when I had an
indescribable sensation. I was standing on our patio and noticed my
shadow, which was very elongated. I had been reading and thinking
about the Jungian shadow side of ourselves. All of a sudden, I had
the strongest urge to start painting the whole shadow sensation; not
just what I saw but what I sensed. This is a sample of some of the
work that started pouring out of me. Sizes range from a very small 3"
x 4" to a much larger 46" x 64". I am still engaged in exploring this
subject ten months later.
