THE GAME, oil on canvas 36?x36? A mountain grins as war breaks out in the valley of indecision. He understands that we humans must take sides, seek targets, set goals and win the game in order to be ?happy? or ?successful.? We choose either X?s or O?s for emotional rather than logical reasons ? sometimes fate decides for us. Then, comforted by a sense of belonging, we are ambushed by the unforeseen like a swarm of bees. What really lies at the end of the red carpet? Are we asking to fall if we choose to stand back and understand all sides?
