Invent the Universe
Wednesday, June 25th, 2014
“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.”
– Carl Sagan
Whether you see a big bang for just the light at the end of the tunnel, this painting feels full of possibility. If you wish to succeed at any endeavor, you have to invent inside yourself the universe in which it can happen. What’s amazing to me is that you can do it, that people can bring whole worlds to life inside themselves and then make them a part of our world, as well.
What do you want in your Universe?
Invent the Universe, 8″x8″ Japanese and metallic watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper.
Above, you can see the silver paint picking up the light as it curves around the central vortex. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, glowing with sunlight and possibility.
This painting will be available in July’s Floating Gallery; join my list to get an early chance at it.
