This painting of the Lady of the Waters was developed out of desperation. The weight of painting something that succeeded was preempted by something that was truth, justice, beauty, order with a little bit of non-conformity. The painting this painting is derived from is a traditional realistic view of the top statue with a nude white woman standing in front of the lady emulating her form. Though the traditional painting could be misconstrued as pornographic the abstracted painting has all the feeling without being pornographic. The more blended the two figures become the more they play off each other and become one. The blob like building shapes in the background being Nantucket red made the flesh understandable and reasonable. Taken to the edge of understanding the motif embraces the Queen City idea.

Painting with blobs is reality. Composition and time of day establishes the painting. This new manner cannot change the situation. The gross manner lends itself to familiarity. The visceral manner guided by natural illustration makes everyone there. Each stroke takes on more significance. Reality reduced to something a printer would do but when the artist reduces the scene to a few blobs that still have the scene then now that’s painting. Each round edged blob means more. The blob represents the reality of painting in the classical manner. Strike while the iron is hot. Why do anything unless you are ready? The same is true with painting.
Tom invented this painting technique. Tom melts oil pastels on metal by heating the metal. Once cooled the work will stay in place unless heated to 255 degrees, at 155 degrees you can manipulate the oil pastel without having the oil pastel move towards gravity. Run warm water over to clean, do not rub or brush, let dry and replace in frame. Do not touch the surface. The work should last for hundreds if not thousands of years if undisturbed not heated above 175 F and lit by indirect light.
