Oil and Collage on Linen,  20" x 16"

I started this painting about a month ago thinking that
this is Sisyphus rolling that heavy stone up a hill. But,
that wasn't right.  There is no stone.  It didn't  occur to
me that this image is hopeful.  Anyway, it wasn't hopeful
until I painted in the sky.  Now,  Sisyphus has a way out
and that is to simply sail away.

  1. or a shard fallen from the sky on this side of the fence?
    a form caught inside the fence where we all are in the same cage?
    symbolic reading and visual reading -interconnections of which perhaps is what makes art?
