This image came to me while I was working on THE RIVER in 1996. I don’t know why it took me over 10 years to get around to doing this painting! Another meditation on Prudence. Michael revisits the world of EPHEMEROS.While working on this small variation, I was reminded of my youthful days in California and how I found more time for meditation back then. Thus the sky color, mountain vistas and foliage are reminiscent of California. In contrast to GLIMPSE, the figure has her back to the red glass heart and she is contemplating life after death.
