“Persephone” 24×18 inches, oil on panel  SOLD

In Greek mythology, Hades, lord of the underworld, fell in love with Persephone, goddess of springtime, while she was picking flowers in a field. The Fates have decreed that anyone consuming the fruits of the underworld must spend eternity there. Persephone was persuaded into eating some pomegranate seeds (four or six?) and thus was forced to spend part of each year in the underworld.

Bright Star

“Bright Star” 12×9 inches, oil on panel at Meyer East Gallery SOLD

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art–
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors–
No–yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever–or else swoon to death.

~ “Bright Star” by John Keats
