Young Green Man
Iconography has been a 25 year long diversion from my usual painting themes and style. It is from the Greek Orthodox Christian tradition which I am now applying to more secular and pagan themes so as to make it more inclusive in my catalogue raisonnée. The Young Green Man looms through the ivy leaves as a forest deity, the leaves coming from his young mouth are not yet a beard and moustache.
