This painting was inspired by a poem by Robert Frost, The Trial by Existence. I just love this poem. To me it is .... well so much.... but basically an acknowledgement of how courageous it is just to be human. God holds us in his "especial care" because he knows how much courage it takes to plunge to earth leaving paradise behind. I named the painting The Fall because I think the poem looks at the fall of man in a different way, rather than a transgression, more as an act of valor. I did a little video below. The music is Van Morrison. The Fall is up on ebay right now.
Just remember just being here and doing the best you can is an incredible feat.
