More mushrooms.

Nothing endures but change.
- Heraclitus

This body of work deals with the transitory nature of existence. I draw inspiration from the complexity of nature, especially subject matter that embodies the duality of growth and decay, such as mushrooms and lunar phases. The cyclical nature of the moon alludes to the repeating cycles of time and the degradation and regeneration of all living things. I find comfort in the repeating patterns perceivable in the natural world that signal the certainty of change.

Instructional demo for my drawing class...
I've been working with the moon a lot, and wanted to weave it into this image. The placement alludes to halos in religious iconography, a subject that has inspired a lot of my earlier work.
