Escape and The Cage of Independence

…the act of disobedience [eating from the forbidden tree of knowledge] as an act of freedom is the beginning of reason…the original harmony between man and nature is broken…Man has become separate from nature, he has taken the first step toward becoming human by becoming an ‘individual’…He has committed the first act of freedom.  The myth emphasizes the suffering resulting from this act.  To transcend nature, to be alienated from nature and from another human being, finds man naked, ashamed. He is alone and free, yet powerless and afraid.  The newly won freedom appears as a curse; he is free from the sweet bondage of paradise, but he is not free to govern himself, to realize his individuality.  - Erich Fromm, Escape From Freedom, Chapter 2


Coconuts part 2

I took about one hundred pictures of coconuts in SE Asia over the past few weeks and I’m once again inspired to make watercolors. This is what resulted when it happened after a trip in the Caribbean several years ago. I ended up making about six of these but I was please with three. I hope to find time to start painting again soon. This past year has been too complicated to work on my personal interests.

Watercolor: 11” x 17”

This coconut group was for a card set, but I framed them for a show. Now they are in these nice frames and they're looking for a good home. There are three.
