I unveiled my ‘YIN AND YANG’ painting that I did for the ‘Celebrating the circle’ art show at first studio in down town Phoenix last night. It was a great turn out despite the rainy weather.  Arizona rain storms sneak up on you and strike fast.  I was hoping it would hold off but it was still a drizzly night.  I am stoked how this painting turned out, specially because I painted it only one week before the shows opening. There was definitely still wet areas while it was showing.  This painting is a bit outside my normal style.  I usually don’t like to do landscapes or if I do its not the focal point or the main subject and more of a background.  This painting represents alot of feelings that I have toward life.  The definition of yin and yang is; Yin and Yang describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality symbolized by yin and yang. This duality lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy.  I created this painting because I believe in the duality of life but I also feel like everything in life is circular. I am a big believer in karma, and feel like what goes around comes around.  If you are a bad person life will catch up with you and you will get what you deserve, but if you are a good kind hearted person, that is what you will get back.  Positivity and negativity, good and bad, Day and night, sun and moon, water and ice, oceans and mountains.  Every thing has its opposite and there is a duality between the two. ” THE YIN AND THE YANG “.
