poem for the painting "Myth of Creation: the Origin of Species"

Myth of Creation: the Origin of Species
explorers have found something out here in the middle of Nowhere
see you dissolving away from me and into Everywhere Dead and very alive All Fragmented together into the future Signals from time The xplosion. Floating out here in the fetal
Warning Ecstatic

in current work

When i was diagnosed with MS in early 2008 I was working on the 5 x 3 ft painting ( top of the banner image) of early morning sunlight through the trees at Green Point (Pacific Rim Ntl. Park). Full image under Current Work tab. It struck me as serendipity that i would face such a life changer while thinking/ starting a new body of work about  the beauty of specifically creation, and nature. Throughout the process of piecing together this following body of work, I worked through the memories within my body, recollecting and re-collecting concepts, themes, and images that have been running though my process since about 1990. This last body of work is the nearest to reflecting what dwells within my heart and spirit, and i am proud to have made it happen throughout these following years of severe treatment and relapse cycles.
