This abstract, geometric acrylic painting on canvas is related to Anne Rices novel, Blood and Gold, a story about Marius the Vampire. The work also relates to Shakespeares play Henry IV, Part 1, ACT III, SCENE I. My abstracted narrative examines the existence of real magic and liturgical magic. The house represents the universe with all Her powers, magical as they are the red streamers that fall from the house symbolize humanitys embellishment of real magic with tales of self glorification, which is false magic. The work consumed three years of my life and is loaded with surface textures. The colors dance off the surface and enter ones mind in the same way that the music of crickets lull one into dreams of starlight.
