AFFINITY expresses harmony, equilibrium and ultimate oneness with the energy that created us. The robust trunk of a tree is ascending, with its streching branches, toward the light; the source where we were never born and will never die. The lotus flower, as a pedestal, unfolds its petals and radiates the pure life force PRANA into our hearts. The duality of female/male beings flows through a dragonfly and out, higher, where it dissolves into the Universal source again. The darting dragonfly reminds us of not being affraid of exploring and going beyond the known as it flies freely in all directions. The painting measures 18x24"; acrylics & oils; in the dragofly's wings I incorporated fragments of the sea coral fan from Virgin Islands.
