SOuLE Path: Oil on canvas 37" X 71"
SOuLE Path... The title of the oil painting SOuLe Path is a play on the words “sole” and “soul”. The content uses the duality of this word play to extend the double meaning of the content in this abstract portrait. SOuLe Path explores the concept that you must walk the path (leaving the footprint of the sole) to know the path (making the imprint on the soul), which life is lived through experience and the soul is built by how we make choices in life. Definition of Soul 1: the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life 2a: the spiritual principle embodied in human beings, all rational and spiritual beings, or the universe Definition of Sole Adjective 2: functioning independently and without assistance or interference let conscience be the sole judge Noun: 1a: the under surface of a foot. b: the part of an item of footwear on which the sole rests and upon which the wearer treads. 2: the usually flat or flattened bottom or lower part of something or the base on which something rests.
