The Transparent Essence Called Life

A favorite drawing! All artists have favorite drawings or works that they have done. This is on of mine. It was drawn in San Miguel de Allande in the early 70’s. It is of a Bougainvillea. It was early morning and the sun was shinning through this magnificent bush. The sun made part of the flower glow with transparency. To me this drawing captures the transparency that is life itself. The living force the thing we call life is very transparent. When it is gone, that what remains is just physical stuff. The smile, the twinkle that little movement has faded to the invisible. The energy of the sun passes through life and sets it aglow. It is at this time that we can witness and experience the transparency we call life.
