LIGHT OF THE THRESHOLD
Oil on canvas, 36 x 48 in.
This was a painting I did in 1990 to commemorate the countdown of the final decade of the millennium.
Engraved on each ascending step are roman numerals of each year approaching 2001. The figure sits with his feet on MCMXC, the year it was painted, (1990). Scattered throughout the scene are references to great works of art such as Millet's "The Sower" paired with the Futurist sculptor Boccioni's "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space".
Here, this painting was used as a cover illustration for the San Francsico Opera Guild's 1991 "Port to Port" Wine & Travel Auction and fundraiser.
