Inspired by a hike I had with my SO. We started in the morning and hiked the entire day until the stars came out. It was magical seeing the blue sky turn to red, dotted with clouds of all shapes and colors, and finally the starry night with the faintest trace of the Milky Way. We live our stressful and hectic days, but it's calming to step back and remember no matter what's happening in our lives, the sun will rise and set, painting the skies in a menagerie of emotions. We all have to do is look up and breathe.
In other news, I'll be at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco this weekend April 11th and 12th, and the weekend after. You can find my table inside the Japan Center Mall, right outside the top floor of the Kinokuniya bookstore entrance. I'll be there will my usual books and prints, and I'm also happy to hangout and chat! If you happen to be a backer for the Axent Wear headphones and have questions about the current status and updates, I'll be happy to answer all your questions in person I hope to see you there!

To me, the tension in Through The Days adds a lot to an aura of suspense. As I embrace the illumination of a new body alongside the observers I get a deep sense of their connection to the universal, even while the decisions before them about themselves and the future are as enormous as the heavens looking down upon them. They are decisions they must ultimately make for themselves from the solitude of their mortality. This epic feeling is confounding, but looking at the painting somehow makes it easier to see anyone can find a still center among it all to see what's really going on.
