You never know what you will find...


You never know what you will find when you gaze into the night sky! (Or when you walk in forests, trek mountains, swim through streams, sleep on the bare earth...)
It's hard not to remember Chagall when there's flying musicians in a piece. So, from Chagall directly (1958): "Art, in general, is an act of faith. But sacred is the art created above interests such as glory, fame or any other material consideration."
Have a great week!
Ps. This is a 7 by 9 linocut, carved outdoors.
