Yeah! It's Adam for sure, but curiously he's already dressed! :D
The figure looks very interesting.

the robe of many colors! - Scott and Caesar glad you had time to check this out...:):):):cool:

The robe of many colors actually belonged to Jacob...If this figure is Adam, he definitely seems conflicted and confused. But then, according to some branches of theology the human race has been conflicted and confused ever since the garden incident...Over all, Gary, this is a fine painting !!!

In the Sixities my mind was enthralled by everything I saw. I saw meaning everywhere. I felt connected to everything I held. My imagination, my passion had no bound. Everything was possible. There were no obstacles. I felt free.

Your paintings remind me of this. May you stay forever young.

neal - thanks I am glad you liked this one... it was an idea that sprang to life and went immediately into this painting...

PD - i can greatly empathize with your comments... some days are as fresh as can be... while others make me really feel my age.... but everyday is a blessing with its lessons and joys ;);):cool:
