Phoenix Eagle is an original acrylic and oil painting created in 2016 measuring 48 x 60 inches.
Thematically this painting is about the contemporary American dilemma. The flying eagle with a burning city on its back projects its own shadow on the landscape. Within the shadow can be seen what has come before in this landscape. Two figures offer up a giant egg with a human fetus within. An offering to pass down to the next generation the regional legacy of mankind.
