I painted this 24″ × 36″ latex house paint (water soluble) on Masonite board painting while in my ‘painting corner’ of the veranda at Stacy’s Hillsview Guesthouse on the beach in Montego Bay Jamaica during the year of 1966.
Stacy always weighed in on titles and deeper meanings. She decided this young classical face had to be a truer face for God than an old bearded one. Then a story evolved with a great long line of souls (in the foreground with us, not in the picture) approaching God for judgment and admittance to Heaven. With great loving presence God gives each soul a karate chop with his left hand, instantly divesting the soul of all their silly delusions from earth and about Heaven. Then with his open right hand He pats them on the fanny and speeds them forward into the perfect communion of Oneness that awaits.
I could never figure out why we couldn’t sell this work in the little beach side gallery we created. ;-)
So now, over forty years later, I still have it… and send it on to you via RB!
There was a need for a halo effect, so I remember experimenting with the dried paint scum off of a number of paint cans to get the thicker paint to pallet knife into the halo place.
2014 applied this art to RB products where I like the way they look. ;-)))
