This painting is an allegory on personal evolution. As we grow, we will often come to the edge of experiential boundaries. Boundaries that require us to examine and alter our beliefs of what is possible if we are to live a more expansive life. The home in the center of the heart shaped tree represents the need to focus on what our own hearts call us forward to create and experience. For this is the current evolutionary drive in humanity. It’s no longer about basic surviving, but about thriving. The comet in the background is symbolic of the two different ways that one can view these cathartic events: either as a destructive comet of catastrophe, or as a shooting star heralding positive change. Or as the band REM wrote, “It’s the end of the world as we know it… and I feel fine”.
