let there be day!

Oil pastel on paper "night and day"

(This is an oil-pastel on paper (20″x30″) that now resides in Australia, called “Let There Be Day“.)

There have been a few moments that I can look back to as cataclysmic events that changed the quality and direction of my life. They are sometimes instantaneous and traumatic. Like a profound crisis. Like the sun rising over the horizon in an enormous blast of heat and light. But sometimes it is gradual… like the rising sun on a misty morning that eventually melts away the fog to expose its warming rays.

The past few months have been that for me. It has been profound. And it’s not over. It’s still dawn. But I feel the warmth of the day coming. Surely.

You can purchase my art from my online art gallery.
