Even though we live on the Earth, we are part of a Greater Whole.
We are part of the Universe and an integral part of an infinite Higher Consciousness that permeates everything. In this painting, I am trying to represent the flow into and out of our earthly existence, but with the sure knowledge that we continue as part of the Cosmic Consciousness.
I drowned when I was seven years old and was brought back to life. I could see myself floating below the surface of the water. I re-lived my short life in reverse, and then I saw the tunnel. When I reached the end of the tunnel, I heard celestial music and saw the most beautiful light I had ever seen! It throbbed with life and more love than a million times as much as the greatest feeling of love any of us have ever felt! I have never been afraid of dying since that day. I think I might have seen God! "Untitled II" is a little about that experience.
