I listen to the trees and think of the humans of the world. We, too, groan in the winds of change - pandemic, news, fear, loss, loneliness. We are reluctant to embrace this thing, and who can blame us? But we must, it seems, "go down past things coming up" for a little while longer. I hold in my one hand the fact that I desire spring, warmth and companionship without worry. In my other hand, I hold the knowledge that it won't be today. In a recent interview with Brene Brown, Barack Obama spoke of the ability to hold opposing truths and to function in that place of discomfort as a sign of strength and resilience.
As 2020 goes "down into the dark decayed", I wish for you (and for me, dear reader) the ability to hold opposing truths as comfortably as you can. And perhaps a lovely, warm slice of pie. Whatever flavor is your favorite. :)
About the art: using the same technique as "Blowing Like Shadows", this piece was created with a strong underpainting and then masking with painter's tape before the final layers of color. I was so immersed in the process that I neglected to get pics along the way....so you will have to.use your "imaJENnation" !!!
