The Vision is a piece that details one’s travel into the inner soul. A plethora of the mind’s inner environment may be obscure, bemusing, unsettling, magnificent or incomprehensible when journeying far enough, such is the case with the small bird located in the lower right hand corner of the painting. But when we dig far enough and allow our minds to be vulnerable to new possibilities and opportunities, albeit some uncomfortable findings along the way, a bridge of understanding will form. That is the awakening of an emerging imagination. The painting depicts the obstacles we face when we try to discover what lies underneath until a link carries the mind to open up to the refulgent treasures within. The vision of self.
