Love recognizes a state of truth distinct from, and opposite to, the idea that there is a difference between the subject and the object. It is sometimes called pantheism. Love is reality itself, of which we incorrectly perceive ourselves as an isolated part. "At the deepest level of our being - the divinity within that we share with all beings - there is no separation between me and you.

Thank you for the feature, and for your interest in The Ocean Series. I'm delighted that you have found something of value in my artwork. Sorry for the delayed reply; I've been away (in Denver, CO) attending to a dear friend who is dying of cancer.

Please have a look and consider joining the Remodernist Painters' Group (RPG). I really like your work, and, I think you'll feel at home with us.
Peace & Love,
Carson
