IT'S EVERYTHING

It's Everything Oil On linen 50 x 50 cm



Yes!
 
-
 
It's everything!
 
Every planet, universe, piece of cosmic dust
 
thought, blessing, emotion
 
Every drop of water, tear, atom
 
Desire
 
Object
 
Non-object
 
Every kind of scape, seen and unseen
 
Beginnings
 
and
 
Endings
 
-
 
Everything.

My new painting posed some problems for me. I loved it, but what was I going to title it? I know I was thinking expansive thoughts when I was painting it, but the few title options I had come up with seemed too limiting.  And, Untitled seemed lazy and vacuous.

So, I was discussing my dilemma with one of my young adult children. After playing with a few title possibilities I heard myself say 'It's everything really...everything.' Ah Ha...I thought...there's the title! And, young adult 'child' agreed.............It's Everything

Can you see everything?

If not, can you see multiple things or possibilities?

'Fly' in your imagination to places beyond, spaces inside. Skit around the peripheries...as if you are playing on the foreshores of the ocean. Allow the 'water' to take you, let the 'sand' swallow you, invite the 'sky' to engulf you...all at once!

Yes, regular readers will know where I am going with this...seeing multi-perspectives simultaneously!

As I have previously written, cosmology is imploring us to traverse new and exciting perspectives of close and far distances. The revelatory nature of dynamic perspective is promising, enticing, seductive...and a little scary and forbidding. Why? It might mean we need to change!
