When I painted this I was contemplating the cycle of becoming, manifesting, withdrawing, and how these conditions interrelate and depend upon each other.
A quote from the zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh spoke to me. He wrote: "When conditions are sufficient things manifest. When conditions are no longer sufficient things withdraw. They wait until the moment is right for them to manifest again."
