Golgotha, 2021

“Golgotha” represents the crosses after Jesus and the other convicts have died and been taken down.

Artist’s statement: Two of the paintings are part of a triptych based on pictures of sunsets on Lake Superior taken by Mark Stephenson. There are three pictures, but I have not begun working on the third painting yet. As usual, and as is the case with most artists, we paint what is in our mind’s eye, not necessarily what the actual landscape looks like. I do not work on paintings at night. I get too hyper and have a hard time settling down to get to sleep.
