Early Spring Thaw
The image is held in a field that symbolizes the Void, or Awareness. I tried to show  growing plants and a landscape  held in the context of Awareness Itself, as symbolized by the black surrounding area.

Meaning comes with the tension between Context and Content. In this painting, the content is energy creating a field of grass and flowers. The context is the surrounding Awareness. Each plant, animal, mineral, star or field is an expression of what it feels like to be infinite Awareness.

This series of paintings, though only 16 x 20 inches, attempts to focus upon the energy universe in the context of the ever-present Awareness.
