Acrylic on panel, 8×8″

It’s not meant to be a literal portrait of our early (very) distant ancestors, but it’s more like a reminder, a loving tribute to those that preceded us. Swimming in the proverbial primordial soup, many distinct entities coming together specializing and cooperating to make cells. 

Which make us. 

Which makes societies.

Which makes me think that maybe that’s how the world is still supposed to work. Seems like the ancestors maybe knew a thing or two.

Let Us Not Forget The Little Ones

Acrylic on cradled wood panel 6.5×12″

There are more microbes that are part of us than our own cells. Or are there? Technically, it’s a symbiosis, but aren’t they in a real sense an essential part of our physical being?

And aren’t we one with them as well as those we can see more easily?

All life is connected. We all depend on one another.
