Painting, Mostly


The paintings are mostly from the 1970s, and use acrylic paint on canvas, bed linen, mounting board, or bulletin board. The sculpture, thematically, fits perfectly here.  For additional commentary, see the essays and artist's statements that regard this work:  "Mandalas by Allen Schill - a brief statement and a long essay", and "Artist's Statement for the Nicholas Roerich Museum Exhibition".
