CREATIONS: More Measuring - Personality Development

These three paintings where inspired by the work of Benjamin Betts as seen in Brainpickings,
Geometrical Psychology: Benjamin Betts’s 19th-Century Mathematical Illustrations of Consciousness

Longitudinal Study Psycho-Social Development-EMPATHY  (acrylic on panel 8"x8")      

Longitudinal Study Psycho-Social Development-EGO (acrylic on panel 8"x8")

Longitudinal Study Psycho-Social Development-TWINS (acrylic on panel 12"x24")
