Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Eternal light touching earth
giving birth to murmuring voices
chanting the poems from old
filling them anew with inner life
engaging in the unions’ dance
of the new dawn in space
nurturing and enveloping
the yearning souls
longing to dance
within the light
of the One.

30″ × 40″ oil on canvas, finished with pastel

This is my finished translation of Diane Schuster’s digital work, The Magic of Sunrise for Solo Exhibtion’s Sojie 13 where digital, photographic and traditional artists are working together to produce art!
