a small space
between wit and wonder
left vacant

Thin Places

(click image to enlarge)

"Crater Dream"

A tiny climber finds his way and begins to climb the west rim. Light shines upon the far cliff-face, revealing its vitreous surfaces, which could only be wrought by fire and ice.

Dreams of mountains sometimes show where we rise above the commonplace or where we meet the challenges of life's difficulties. Throughout the ages, humankind has sought out thin places, those places where the air is thin and the earth seems to merge with heaven. Perhaps we will meet our version of God there... or maybe we will find the divine while sailing or surfing the boundary between the sea and sky. 

In this dreamscape molten rock melts away the loneliness of cold snow, exposing new vistas. 

A sumi-e and color experiment
