The Persistance of Impermanence

Intention For The Painting
I love the idea of portals as a visual metaphor for change and transcendence. As well, I've been doing a lot of studying about our lives in Spirit, and so also wanted to paint something related to that. This painting is another addition to my ongoing Portals series of paintings.

Recently (June 2019) I answered a call to artists from the new "Northern Exposure" TV show (loved the original show back in the 1990's). With the project calling for only 1 sample painting, I asked about a possible theme. The answer, "something psychological" reminded me of this little 2018 painting that I actually like a lot. Maybe it (or something new) will show up in one of the new "Northern Exposure" episodes. My fingers are crossed and my flame is lit... :-)
