Inspiration: There is an harmonious order that prevails in all of my works and that I have chosen to represent here by the well known Taoist symbol of yin and yang. Just as the forces found in our world have a complementarily expressed by this symbol, here represented by a complexly multicolored seascape and a solitary branch, so too there is a complementarily in the arts, specifically poetry, music and painting.
My Story: I think of this work as a tone poem in which the basic unity of all universal truth is expressed. A viewer of an earlier work of mine found something "Wagnerian" about it. While he may have been referring to the Germanic appearance of the solitary female figure it contains, I prefer to think he heard something musical in it, as I do myself.
