THE TREE OF LIFE

This painting emerged from various ideas I had on the themes of The Tree of Life and Adam and Eve. I find origin stories and concepts of archaic pasts fascinating as they resonate strongly with something very deep in the human psyche, they form part of how we see the world and our place in it and in time. I had the idea of stepping back to arcadia through a series of archways. Doorways and archways also function as portals. Here are some of the idea sketches and final drawings for the painting
