A woman


A woman and the gift she encompasses to grow a life within her.
A woman, without her love and wisdom, a home is just four walls and a roof.
A woman, whose mere presence can drive men to the brink of insanity.
A woman, whose enigma has inspired countless artists throughout history.
A woman, for whom man takes up arms, and lay down his life.

And yet

Women have been subjugated, oppressed, bereft of the freedom to choose to live independently.

(Times they are a changing)

A free woman standing in harmony with herself is a truly powerful being, and a blessing upon us all.. 

Man has been frightened of this, wanting to be in absolute control, has committed crimes.

But the light breaks free.

Ode to you, woman. 
This piece is about feeling the wonder of life, from the infinity of the living universe to the ecosystem of our planet, to the beauty of a woman.

She will hang in my living room for a bit, I want to give her some time to let me know if she is complete.
When that is clear, I will sign her, have her photographed, and then she will become available for sale. 

What do you think her name should be?
Also, there is something new coming up, and it'll light up my art.

I just have a few things to sort out, then it'll be time for the big reveal. Stay tuned.

Takeaway Thought

One man will barely glance at the night sky. What is there to see that he hasn't seen a thousand times before? He has satisfied himself with the secrets that are available.

But a child looks up at the sky, and he marvels at the tiny bit of infinity that his eyes can perceive. To that child, the clouds and the rain, the sun, the moon, and the stars, they are all magical.
Shine on, you crazy diamond!
