Loved to Death:
Scorching Zenith
Sun of Passion


Inspired by a famous speech in Eugene O’Neill’s experimental play, Strange Interlude. ‘My life is a cool green shade wherein comes no scorching zenith sun of passion and possession to wither the heart with bitter poisons.’


Hebrew words embellish the sky: hesed (lovingkindness); neshamah (soul); ruach (spirit); nefesh (sentient being); binah (discernment or insight); YHVH (unpronouncable name of God); Shaddai (feminine aspect of God as nurturer); Eloheinu (God).

The painting continues around the edge of the frame (a typical treatment.)
