In this abstract conceptualist paining, I explore the idea of Om. It is 15″x22″ and is done in pastel.
I originally thought of depicting the concept of Om in a continuous, uneventful, horizontal line. But the more I thought about it, I changed my mind. I like the vertical image instead as indicative of the human reaching for the divine, focusing past all the chatter of the foreground to the immense wholeness beyond. I chose an egg shape to represent that listening Source, for the sense of life and patience it suggests.
