The Wise Virgin

oil on canvas
96 x 57.625 inches

The Wise and Foolish Virgins are a diptych, referencing JayDefeo’s 1960’s compositions and the titles of her works during that time period. They are pre-cursors to my current Mandala Series. Thistles as subject matter bridge my earlier landscape (Battlescape paintings) with the more abstract compositions I’m currently working with.
