The lone person here stands on a quiet hilltop with a peaceful blue sky that looks like nothing out of the ordinary. Yet we can see his thoughts take shape in a luminous cloud of explosive color and dynamic shapes:


Starting from a few red dots at the bottom, A rainbow of thoughts branch off into a raucous symphony of patterns, beginning with more sharp and rigid conflicts, being softened and healed by more organic shapes. A river of white light flows everything along, as the metaphoric thoughts merge and climb up a ladder, through lofty temple doors, as if escalating upwards to heaven and the origin of creative thought.


Often people assume that just because another person is quiet it means they don’t have anything to say. In my opinion, there is often a lot more going on inside a quiet person than is said out loud... hence this painting pays tribute to the adage “still waters run deep.”
