What is reality ? Recently I have been exploring this concept a lot. Is it only those things that can be verified by several witnesses, do those witnesses need to be human, can the witnesses be animals ? Can it be something that only one being conjures in it's mind and insists is real ? Can it be a very tangible place/thing and be something very different to whoever/whatever experiences it? So many questions.
More exploration is required.
My reality has shifted back into winter mode. It's cold again (at least for what it has been in this area for the past month) freezing at night and in the cool 50's with a breeze in the daytime ... BRRR!
So, I decided to share another "winter" painting with you. This is a scene from the Arcata Marsh on an early frosty morning. This portion of Humboldt Bay is a wildlife sanctuary that processes the sewage from the city in an environmentally responsible manner-everyone wins.
I see this area as a peaceful sanctuary to spend time outdoors. I know this is "home" to many animals and a resting spot for migrating avian travelers. And it was created to be a wonderfully functioning effluent treatment facility for the city of Arcata. What is it's reality?
Please enjoy this little piece of my present reality... Arcata Marsh Winter-Dawn.
