The month of July was challenging on a personal level.
I made an unexpected trip home to Australia to see my Step-Father in the ICU ward. He passed away a few days after my return to the USA.
May he rest in peace.
I began this painting in the days before leaving to Australia and completed it in the days before his passing, on my return. I was thinking a great deal about the Biology of our bodies and how our beliefs shape our reality I thought about human consciousness, our cells and how our thoughts and beliefs in turn affect them.
The time spent in the studio with this work was highly cathartic and I like to think that although it was a time of sadness that this painting reflects more of a celebration of life In Gratitude!
