The purpose of this thesis is to interpret internal poetic feelings as visual images. The poetic visual impact is achieved through the manipulation of composition using male figures, symbols, color, space and scale in painting. The canvases are executed in the size, five feet by seven feet. These narrative paintings are created with oil paints. It is my hope that by producing such emotive visual images and their symbolism, viewers will reach the point where they can relate to the rise and fall of my heart and soul.
