18" x 24" Oil on canvas, 2019
This year has been full of wonder. While examining ultrasound images from early pregnancy were on my mind, this painting appeared on my canvas. It resembles an avocado, a great womb, or an egg, it references life cycles. It's shine and flecks of gold help the viewer to revel in the mystery of life. Who can understand this great mystery? Who can know how or why, fully and completely? We can only accept it, and treasure it, for it is one of life's greatest wonders and ultimately, one of life's greatest joys.
