Escape Velocity

Acrylic on panel, 8×8″ $495.00

We really do need to get up a head of steam (or a good rocket thrust) to make the change, and break free of what’s been weighing us down.

What change? THE change, the one we’ve been wanting to make. 

For. So. Long.

Origins

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.

Cactus Valley

Cactus Valley

Amazing things, cacti. Where a human would die for lack of water, some living things can thrive and grow to enormous sizes.

Some people flourish in one set of circumstances where others are overwhelmed and drown or wither and shrivel up in a situation that isn’t right for them. Take a beautiful saguaro and put it in a rain forest, and you’re not doing it any favors. Same for a lush tropical fern if you put it in the desert.

Thing is, the cactus, being a plant, doesn’t try to force the fern into its own comfort zone. And the fern is just as happy to let the cactus be a cactus. Kind of a nice way to veg out, if you think about it.

All depends what you’re built for, I guess.
