|Even If We Can't See Them 32"x48"|
For me, this painting is a combination of city and landscape with stars in the sky. I used more metal flakes and little tiny circles with irridescent paint on just the circles. These circles are very subtle, almost to the point that you cannot see them at all. That is why I titled this painting, "Even if You Can't See Them". When I look up at the bright blue sky in the middle of the day, I always think about how the stars are out there, even if we can't see them. It's such a re-assuring thought. They are always there, whether we think of them, or see them. I love this magical metaphor for all the tuly important things in life we cannot see but we know are there. Love, friendship, spirituality, good energy, bad energy. It makes me laugh at the "proof" I thought I needed when I was younger.
Thank goodness I can paint! I think I would go crazy having these thoughts with no where to put them.
