"There is Dark and There is Light" . 11"x17" print $20
As I wrote in last weeks email, a dear friend with colon cancer stage 4, who we thought was about to die, had surgery last Monday. The tumor was removed, and now he is going to live!!! We are overjoyed. It is now eleven days since the operation and my friend remains in excruciating pain. No one knows how long this pain will last. At the same time that I feel joy about my friend's new lease on life, I am also experiencing anguish as he continues to be in agony. This mixture of awe at the magnificence of grace is sometimes experienced simultaneously to experiencing the horrors which life can entail. It is this holding of the polarities of life on earth that I was expressing when I painted "On Earth As It Is", pictured above. Art works as a visual metaphor for experience and can express subtle nuances sometimes impossible to capture in words. You can own an artwork that explores the polarities of life as illustrated in nature by clicking here:
