Future: the persistence and consequence of what has come before.
I imagine a small square of earth from above in the year 2045.
Among the emerald, ochre, sapphire, and textures of life, I make out what appear to be objects, symbols, and built structures from an earlier time, barely seen.
I think of how, over time, nature reclaims what is taken, no matter the damage caused. One Small Square of Earth is a painting that is an expression about the persistence of life.
