24" x 18"  - Acrylic on Canvas


A buttercup shape sits nested in the middle of towering architectural shapes, a reference to and in reverence of the unstoppable life force—the same power that birthed the stars that is present in the simplest flower--and in us. It’s a signal to be humbled, patient, present, grateful and in a state of surrender. The buttercup sits open and receives the sun’s rays, doesn’t chase after, attracts bees, is moved by the most delicate breeze… Faux 3-D hints at another dimension at play, and translucent shapes make an overlay for viewing chaos in the background.
