Set Me As A Seal Upon Your Heart.
acrylics on canvas
34" x 42"

This picture looks at the controls and sacrifices of the female creative. Its title is from the Song of Songs:

"Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm ,
for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave
Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown  it
if a man offered for love..all the wealth of his would be utterly scorned... "

This woman is controlling the deepest forces in our world, sublimating the physical imperstives in order to create her art. And the world responds...
