When I painted this image the first time I was thinking about life and the seeming solitude one lives in A butterfly appeared unexpectedly in the first one, bringing delight and symbolizing constant companionship with our heavenly Father. This painting continues joyfully in that direction, though the title "House Divided" brings a new dimension to joyful solitude.
My first grandchild, Weston, inspired a painting that turned me to this new direction of paintings. This painting is the third oil painting done with him in mind. There are two acrylic paintings with him as the main character. One of them sold at it's first showing.
There's a story here. But beyond that, look how the tail and the blue 'flames' flow from the first to the second painting! I didn't plan that.
I had the idea to put the perspective on the first painting and all the rest fell into place.
The second painting shows Godzilla after he's taken the sower, thus the title, "Godzilla Takes Sower". After painting the second panel, I see that the first painting shows Godzilla protecting the sower from the helicopter, though I wasn't aware that was happening till painting # 2 got well into the painting. Now I see that Godzilla has been Ed all along and the sower was Bill!
