The spirits of love

A mediaeval quality to this one I think, but then, the red interior that I had in my mind is a shuttered room in an old city within a medallion of fifteenth century Venetian walls. It is a composition I keep returning to (30 x 40 oil on canvas 2006) and the greek writing built into the texture of the background is a Cavafy poem that tells how in old age one could light a candle to create an atmosphere for the spirits of love to arrive....bearing images from our past sensual experiences.......
I will exhibit it next week.
