I believe that this is the finished version of Beyond the Call of Silence...
Beyond the Call of Silence, 2014, acrylic on plywood, 24" x 18".
The piece was painted from the background forward, as it turns out. This was not intentional, just the way it happened. The background, the partial figure, the small face & then the leaves appeared pretty much in that sequence. In this way the piece somewhat resembles a collage. Although the piece has numerous flaws & oddities, it hangs together & I am pretty sure that it is done.
