I’m fascinated with layers. This round canvas offered me a challenge in producing balance and depth. I also got a chance to explore some collage. I was inspired when my young daughter asked me about stars. She wanted to know why they sparkled and whether or not they are close to us. After explaining (the best I could) the science of space and stars, I concluded by calling it all, ’space magic.’ It’s not that I don’t think she grasps exploding stars and the great distance it takes for their light to get to us, (although, the distance was hard to relate to her,) it’s the fact that she readily believes it’s magical. That’s what made it stick in my mind. She has a great sense of wonderment and believes - to some extent as all kids do, in alternate realities filled with magic and imagination. I love it.
