The Seed
Inkjet on Rag Paper on Aluminum
20.5" x 27"

The image is called "The Seed", a favorite that has withstood the test of time. It started out as a photograph of a dried husk from a Japanese Lantern plant. My technique was to then play with the original image on the computer until I felt something interesting begin to happen. And then just go with the feeling and the flow.

I print my images on an archival inkjet rag paper and then mount them on aluminum composite substrates. A coat of Renaissance Wax helps protect the surface and adds addition depth and sheen to the image.

Many have felt deeply into this image through its appearance on my website and at several exhibits. One person, Lucy Bright Eyes, sent me a wonderful message in words to go with it.

"Love really is all. The vibration of a human heart that radiates love is a precious gift to the universe. It has the capacity to change worlds. You cannot understand yet the enormous wakes you leave as you raise your collective vibrations here on this plane. Do you not see that you reside in many dimensions simultaneously? Your conscious mind can only grasp a miniscule portion of your true nature. Yes, it is time to move more fully into the spheres of influence you have created for yourself. You have planted yourself as a seed. It is now time to sprout branches and bear fruit. The fruit is love. We remain near to support your path. Practice taking action, living every moment with the full awareness of each and every heart's source in divinity. Each and every one of you emanates from Source, all are loved, each is honored for the wearing of physical biology."
