Wow, thanks Ushna!
– Glendon Mellow
this is really interesting and original, says a lot about cultural®evolution.
Thanks Nancy – what does it say? ;-)
Well, Glendon, humans have reached an evolutionary level where – unlike animals – we evolve through culture, a highly complex situation in which we are able to go in many directions, up or down or way way out there. Religions try to keep us on narrow paths, of course, based in a fear of this freedom. Your courageous art expresses an interesting aspect of this phenomenon, I think.
Thanks Nancy, that gives me some food for thought. I loved making this painting, but I hadn’t thought of how much of my worldview was poured into it.
Good one! [Bulletin from Starfleet: last 2 days to enter the Funnest of Sci Fi Challenge! Check it out!]
