24×28 2006-2013

I dreamed myself emerging from a dense forest on an unexpected sunlit path the future opened before me. My father appeared and shook my hand farewell ~ Ten years earlier on the anniversary of his passing. I forgave him of lingering resentment and was filled with light inspiring a painted self portrait. That portrait is now under this one.

Form and formless in which spirit penetrates matter and transforms it.
The further I progress with my vision of surrender and perception the freer I become to realize forms of vivid space. Figuratively speaking nature is a force gathered together into one autonomous existence. To stand on the ground of emptiness constitutes the essence of all things.
