“Expressions of Empathy” (Volume II)
Oil on Canvas
24″ x 48″
At some point, we all experience a losing battle to ourselves. This is when the power of the ego, if often overruled by that “Little Green Monster” that tends to rule the ego, and sense of rationale. Life becomes a game of trickery when the ego is off balance, and the odds of winning the game, get slim. This painting is a comical approach at describing how each and every one of us have “stood in line’ to let our own little green monster make moves for us. The colors applied are vivid, and the imagery is somewhat primary, to express the concept clearly. In this scenario, the “green monster” has taken control of the decisions, and moves of the paper doll-like people, and begins playing the game for them.
