Bowl and Spoon

Reproduction of Original 1974 Painting

I believe it’s best to let people have some room for interpretation of a work, especially ones that have a bowl and spoon as a symbolic quality. There’s a strong element of Oliver Twist here. The empty bowl seems to ally itself to hunger and need. Maybe I’m giving away too much. Initially it was a visual moment of light and dark that moved me. These weird ideas come from spending so much time alone in front of the easel.
