Sacred Night

The last two weeks have been rather eventful, and unfortunately, not in a good way. Sometimes life feels like a domino effect, one bad thing happens and then a downward sort of spiral is created. My Mom was telling me that she believes the oil spill has created a dark tragedy that seems to be spilling and spreading into everyone's life. If you believe that we are all connected as I do, then it does feel as though that is possible. That horrible event aside, I know things will right themselves and life is already moving in a more positive direction around here. As the devil a.k.a. Tim Curry said from the movie LEGEND (right before he was cast into a dark vortex/black hole by the good hero a.k.a. Tom Cruise), "There can be no light without the dark." I loved that movie as a kid, and that scene just captured me. Needless to say, it's true, so one must learn to accept the dark times as part of life. With all this swimming about in my mind, I created this illustration, "Noche Sagrada".

That is one amazing piece of art indeed!

And life is indeed full of good & bad things, we just need to work on the bad and celebrate the good!

I really hope the bad strike goes away from your life soon!

When I think of the oil spill, it never occured to me that you were so near of it !!! I was so damned involved in my own problems and fatigue, I didn't think farther than my nose...

It is a universal catastrophy. What a shame. Life will never be the same after this, the entire planet will feel the effects...

Love what you did. It is awesome.

Kisses and hugs, dear.

Beautiful piece of work! I'm a firm believer in tapping into one's dark side to create art. It's a good way to release these things. Thanks for sharing this one, you've inspired me. I've been feeling the same call for days now!
Hoping you find El Mundo Bueno once more... but somehow, I think you have!
