Shadow Figure Paintings

There is a reality which is unreal and it is the world of shadows.  Cast shadows undulate and change and contain many things which are not really there.  Perception is allowed to run off into the imagination and beyond.  In these paintings most of the figures are drawn from shadows I cast directly onto the canvas.
