Remember when I didn’t finish this?

I sat this piece aside for a few days, added the reflections of those eyes in the shiny black tile floor and then never photographed it!  Ha!

I just dove into my next piece and didn’t go back – – – until today.  Adaptation, it’s such a lovely piece once you get used to the idea of it!

The Fundamental Knowability of Nature

It’s a big title for a painting.  Of course, it has a story…based in quantum physics (of which I know very little.)  The fundamental knowability of nature explains, as an example, that the more precisely you locate the position of an atom, the more unlikely it will be that you can tell the speed at which it is traveling.  You can’t know both at once.  Remarkable.  I translated that idea into a visual image that correlates this blackbird’s place in man’s world.  Oh wait, does that work?

Yesterday I thought that either one of two things was going to happen.  (1) that by miraculous happenstance, I would finish this piece today, or (2) that I would wake up feeling cursed and would struggle for two weeks more.  Well, as unlikely as it would seem…
