Secret 5...acrylic on paper and panel...04 apr 2010

…It’s no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
It’s no secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief

Over love… we shine like a
Burning star
We’re falling from the sky
Tonight

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all…(Bono)

This painting is inspired by a picture I took  in the Piazza del Santo outside the Basilica Di Sant’Antonio in Padova, Italy.  Along the colonnade, there was a vendor set up with religious icons for sale.  I don’t know if these were souvenirs or an aid for worship.
