Good is Evil

Radix Malorum (The Campsite on the Mound)
Acrylic on Canvas
10" x 10"

Through some cosmic legerdemain, Summer has disappeared, and Fall is upon us. With it comes the gloom and the rain and all the other wonderful things that Autumn has to offer.

In honor of the onset of darkness, Portland's Good Gallery is hosting a group show entitled Good is Evil. I painted the picture above specifically for this exhibition. The title is an oblique reference to the Pardoner's Tale, but the setting is pure backwoods Virginia... not the real backwoods Virginia, of course, but the dark, swampy Virginia of my dreams.

Happy Fall!
