Metamorphosis II
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 26x34 in

  • The connection between the elements of the world – air, sky, earth, and water – materializes in the form of a dense plasma cloud that resembles a hot air balloon.
  • It is, in essence, a cloud that helps people share their thoughts and feelings with each other.
  • Note, this painting was created before the complete and utter victory of the World Wide Web and "cloud technology."

It seems like the thoughts of the two lovers, concentrating into that cloud convergence, lifted them up to the top of the hill. They can now fully enjoy all the magical colors of dawn. It is reminiscent of the poem, "Delights" by Valery Bryusov:

The third of delights is when you are loved
Ever aware of someone right near,
By word unobtrusive together bound hard
The two of us fly over the hollows of fear.
