It Is Just How Things Are

The universe is in a constant state of creation and renewal. What seems like destruction is just part of ongoing change something exists then changes sometimes suddenly like a supernova or a collision of elements creating unlimited variations. This painting attempts to capture that.

My work is inspired by my thoughts, feelings, musings and meditations about reality and whether there is such a thing. Who am I and how do I fit into the infinite cosmos? Buddhist teaching says everything is part of everything else just one infinite, timeless oneness and what we call reality is just a dream, a phantom, a drop of dew, a bolt of lightning. I like that thought.
