Interesting line from the Bard. Awareness of what we are is a good thing but we should not be satisfied. We can always be better, be more than we are now.
More tolerant and understanding of the plight of others. More patient. More generous. More kind. More peaceful. More willing to listen, to learn. More loving.
That’s what I see in this piece, Knowingness, an 18″ by 26″ painting that is part of my show opening tomorrow at the West End Gallery. It’s about knowing what you are and, while being at peace with this knowledge, realizes there is always the possibility of being more.
It may be the beginning of real wisdom.
I can’t say for sure. I don’t think I’m at that point yet but, with this painting serving as a reminder, remain hopeful.
