Acrylic on wood panel. 18″ × 24″ (45.7cm. X 61.0 cm.)
This is a commissioned painting. The commissioner is in the pharmaceutical business. He suggested that I include (if i could) some of his wares. That was an opportunity for me to express my feelings about the subject in symbolic prose, via my paint and imagination.
The scrotal looking plants in the painting are my favorites, California Pitcher plants, also known as “COBRA LILIES”. These clever plant adaptations entice their insect pray into a narrow mouth, heading toward a digestive “pot” with inward pointing hairs, preventing the insect from reversing out.
Original sold. However, prints (etc.) are available. Please contact me if you are interested in pricing for a commission. E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
