So.....this piece is my newest experiment in this direction. In the past, I poured out my emotions and ideas, then covered them with new emotions and ideas provoked by the first ones. It was hard to know where to stop.......what idea was worthy of being the one that stayed in view. Now I am playing with the idea itself. I am certainly glad that I have art to occupy me, to take up my time and my aspirations. The fact that it all gets buried behind us as we move along is such a great metaphor for life, as well as death. Each work is neither precious nor irrelevant. It just is, and then isn't.
