168 SEASCAPE II- 10' 8" X 4' 8" -Oil on Canvas
First painted 1997, repainted spring 2015
Did you notice that this painting is nearly 11 feet across?!!! A wonder! -that it comes off at all in this little format. One aficionado remarked recently that seeing these large works in person really makes all the difference.
None the less, for our purposes here- to announce, archive and consider, this will do for the moment.
For the "Flotsam on Amber Waves in a River of her eIce" See Below
There was One- "I AM"
Then, from "Itself"
"It" made everything
Wifts of energy
Variously constructed- a periodic table
Wifts and Spirit joined
An animate universe
after a while,
Now- Existence seems to be crumbling all about, always is (what it's really doing is too big to tell- can it fail?)
No? Not yours? Fine...
I've envisioned 'non-existence'
All of "this" crumbled away
Yogis, saints and seers, describe it in terms of bliss.
Just Being- without Existence
'Now' is just fine too, at the moment...
But 'Just Being' is something to look forward to!
I suppose as creatures we will always see through a veil of creation. Might be that's the only way anything is known. There are no adequate words or ideas up to such... But maybe there are pictures, Modern paintings, drawings- liminal gestures of every kind.
Stretched out as we are in time and space.
