Originally inspired by the galactic Hubble space image of The Pillars of Creation, this painting took on a life of its own as the nebulas flowed through my paintbrush. Within the painting you can see a cosmic dancer at the center, who almost seems to be turning into the large raven spirit above him. Also I saw an angel in the mists, and the whole scene is surrounded by a giant subtle heart, representing universal love.
A poet friend of mine wrote a poem for this image which I think captures it's spirit beautifully:
Poem by Knowa Know
I nursed the stars in the palm of your cosmos.
I ran among the pillars of creation as I crafted my wings
to fly, away from the infinity of streams of possibilities.
The wings mixed with rainbow nebulas, whom I raised.
The ravens that invest my soul are never eternally bound.
My roads and the angels my universe creates, is apparent...
The central world, the space I envelop is expanding...
The love I placed in creating you have taken shape
into a heart that compasses all but holds nothing—
A pale comparison to the expansion of whom I nurse.
I want to claim that heart once again, I want to grow...
The universe needs another caretaker, a teacher
As angels wander around me and the heart, I smile—
A black void from before is slowly losing its control.
The colors are flying, dancing, in full celebration!
My job is done, I’ve nursed another colorful universe
and I have essentially expanded my time as the teacher.
I must travel on to spread my cosmic, godly teachings.
