A New Painting, "Discordance and Harmony", Completed

Last week, I finished another oil painting - a painting I had been working on for many months.

This painting was a confluence of many motifs I have been employing and experimenting with - white dress, ruin, river, writing of many languages.  On this 24" x 30" canvas, I was trying to bind together these elements to demonstrate during the long period of history, different cultures intermingled, fight with, learned from, and co-existed along other cultures and despite the constant tragedies entailed, it is undeniable that our collective history was enriched thus.
