Reason and emotion combine and conflict in a bid to control my state of mind. This internal tempest grows and consumes all I am in its efforts to escape and dictate my every action. All I can do is try to contain the storm.

    “Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.

    If either your sails or our rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.

    For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.

    Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion; that it may sing;

    And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes." – Kahlil Gibran.

    …luminous and beautiful work, David :)

    that you are able to release your emotions on canvas like this is incredible…maybe its not about containing the storm but allowing it release in ways that heal and feed you?

  • Thank you Kim, as always.

    Beautiful stuff – the vibrancy of the colour alone is powerful, but mixing it with that stone texture… glorious!
