"I read a passage in a metaphysical book in the early 70's sharing an intriguing image: the crystal-clear night sky with its billions of stars as a curtain drawn over another, deeper reality with the stars each being an opening letting the light of that hidden reality shine through in varying degrees of intensity. A simple enough concept that stayed with me. Finally, nearly 50 years later I decide to use that as a starting point for a painting. I started & stopped this project nearly 2 years ago, putting it on hold several times to be continued after finishing something else. It evolved into a more complex composition than I expected. I'll share my own interpretation later (when asked) but anyone else's is just as valid as mine!"
