This blog never built up the steam like my older one, so please visit and like my old and thriving blog at Charleston Through An Artist’s Eye. And also my artist page on facebook, which is public.
This painting was begun to remember the ocean, where I lived, on Edisto Island, for two years. But then this red ball appeared in the picture. It is about myself, and as Nietzche described the task we humans face, in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, it is to be child-like, and, as he described it, “A wheel rolling out of its own center.”
Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.
— J.R.R. Tolkien
