Ploce Series

The title of this new painting on paper is ploce  (pronounced  PLOH-see)–the word means the repetition of a word or phrase to gain special emphasis or to indicate an extension of meaning, as in Ex. 3:14: “I am that I am.”

REN

This painting started as a sketched idea in color in one of my sketchbooks. I’ve since painted two versions of it, but am only posting one here.

I gave this the title REN, a written character in Mandarin Chinese, which it reminded me of  a little. The Chinese character is much different.
