The Categorical Imperative
This is the second of the Abstracts I have painted since my afternoon in the Buddhist Temple.
My son, who is my greatest critic does not like this one. His opinion is it is far too cluttered and possibly even a bit harsh.
He may well be right about the clutter, but then as I have already told you these three paintings have grown from the thinking of that afternoon and the on-going thinking in the days that have followed.
Having been both a minister of religion and a teachers of Philosophy, obviously some of that thinking and questioning has been about some of the, “Big Questions.”
When we turn to those my mind is indeed a clutter and a turmoil. I hope you can also see that it is not dark but bright and full of life if sometimes in the clouds.
The title I hope does not confuse but in fact add to the thoughts behind it.
