Title: All's Well That Ends Well
(Life's Boat)
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
30" x 40"
 
This painting is a special tribute to Shakespeare. His play of the same name was written during his “Tragic Period” (1600-1608) and first published in the First Folio in 1623. Today it is classified as a “problem play” because it cannot be neatly classified as tragedy or comedy.
 
~ Lou el Oso

“To be at the end of your rope. The sun above you is dominant. Things are not looking well, then a break". That scenario plays out repeatedly in life’s boat. It’s a great life – just don’t weaken.

Title: Self Inquisition
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
36" x 48"
 
This is a reminder to all of us about how inner struggles can drive a person into great emotional pain. Self-inquisition seems to be what we often do to ourselves much too often. I don’t know anyone who has not persecuted themselves.

Title: Behold Atlas Dancer 
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
60" x 48"
 
Atlas is a figure from Greek mythology. He is the son of the Titan, Japetus and an Oceanid, Clymene (or Asia). Atlas was punished by the "father of Gods and men," Zeus, and made to bear the weight of the heavens on his back on the top of Mt. Tam. Atlas takes a break and dances with the world (his mistaken burden). Man needs breaks.

Title: Dr. Jeckyll & His Misanthropic 
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' is an 1886 novella written by Robert Louis Stevenson, a Scottish author. The work is commonly known today as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Misanthropy is a generalized dislike, distrust, disgust, contempt and hatred of the human species, human nature, and/or (human) society. A misanthrope is someone who holds those views and feelings. The word's origin is Greek: misos meaning hatred and anthropos meaning a human being. You will note that there is a somewhat misunderstanding by Dr. Jeckyll.

Title: Delphi
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
30" x 24"
 
Delphi is a UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site and a town in Greece near Mount Parnassus. - I pictured myself traveling in 1BC. in ancient Greece, in the valley of Phocis in order to view the site of Apollo, the slayer of Python, the keeper of the Earth's navel. My painting represents how I believe it would have been to actually look into her, Apollo's priestess, Pythia's eyes…unearthly. Would I have listened to my Oracle?

Title: Tested by Fire
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
36" x 48"
 
In his 1821 play, Almansor, the German writer Heinrich Heine, referring to the burning of the Muslim holy book, the Qur'an, during the Spanish inquisition wrote, "Where they burn books, so too will they in the end burn human beings." Over a century later, Heine's own books were among the thousands of volumes that were torched by the Nazis in Berlin's Opernplatz. Symbolizes Ignorance and mean spirit trying to burn knowledge but true wisdom cannot be burned away.

Title: Reengineering Nature's Specificity and Efficacy
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
48" x 36"
 

Reengineering nature is a heart-felt feeling for me. We seem to be always messing around with nature while never knowing what the final outcome could be. Having been brought up in a time when plastics, deforestation, and pollution are among the many atrocities done to nature, gives me a distinct image of man pushing nature.

Title: Planch Epoch
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
24" x 48"
 

The Universe expanded from an extremely hot, dense phase called the Planck Epoch, in which all the matter and energy of the observable Universe was concentrated.

I wanted to catch the natural power and flow of the earth in unison with the heavens to give an overall feeling of movement and oneness with our surroundings. Sometimes the color and the beauty one sees every day are taken for granted and overlooked.

Title: Philostratus
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
30" x 24"
 

Flavius Philostratus (circa 170 AD) wrote the biography Life of Apollonius of Tyana referring to the phoenix as a bird living in India that sometimes migrated to Egypt on the order of every five hundred years. This story evolved into the mythical, sacred firebird with colorful plumae, which builds itself a nest of myrrh twigs. When finished, both the nest and bird ignite and burn fiercely - reduced to ashes. But from these ashes, a new, young phoenix arises. In popular culture this is referred to as The Phoenix Rises Again (or The Phoenix Shall Rise Again).

Title: Warring Within
 
Oil on Canvas Original
 
By Lou el Oso
 
30" x 24"
 

This character represents all of us in one form or another in a stylized form attempting to run from one’s own personal demons.

Referring to "demons" (above) it's of interest that the Greek word daimon does not carry the negative connotation that Christianity spread into religion, mythology, even occultism and folklore.
