Show of Hands

Hands reaching for air and attention
Acrylic on canvas, 16 x 20 inches (2008)

One of the Hands series of paintings.

Left hands, right hands,
palms forward, lifelines on display.
People vying for attention, or
possessing the answer to some mystic question.

So many imperfections,
bent, crooked, sublime and ugly . . .
incredible dexterity, complex movements that
machines cannot perform . . .
well, at least not yet.

Please do not reproduce the images in this display.
