Edge of the Universe
* People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used. -unknown *
The diffusion of the acrylic and metallic paint on this 30 by
24 inch canvas creates a chaotic sophistication of colors. The wisdom of the
royal blue is scattered among the tranquility of the metallic turquoise. The
purity of the white balances out the industrial metallic pewter and to
highlight this prismatic sea of blues is the gracefulness of the ornate
silver. The elegant moon is nestled in the kaleidoscope sea and is also
created with the same bright silver. The Virgin white trees stand out from the
labyrinth of the marbled background. They tangle with each other to evoke a
feeling of security and faith. The tenacious roots disappear into safe pools of
white that disseminate into the kaleidoscope background. The essence of this
piece creates the feeling of determination in this chaotic world we live in.
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. -Booker T. Washington
They say it feels better to give than receive. This is definitely true but when you receive as well as give in collaboration, amazing things happen.There are a few hidden meanings in this 30x24” acrylic, multi-media painting. The one that is not hidden, are the delicate crocheted flowers, that surely shows the makers nature, are made by a local crafts woman, Earlette Mays, owner of Pink Flamingo NM. One hidden meaning is that Earlette’s favorite colors are used to make the tall tree, where the colors and metal ornamentation in the other tree represent the artist. These colors are beautiful by themselves but together they complement the other’s personality. Booker T Washington says it best, “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” –Kym Loc
*"The greatest good you can do for another, is not to share your riches but to reveal to him his own." -Benjamin Disaeli*
The warm colors on the background of this 30x24" acrylic painting ass to the essence of comfort portrayed both two humanly shaped trees that embrace and entangle each other to create an amazing network of branches and roots. This network reveals a message hidden in the light but enlightened in the dark, both in the branches and the roots. This is a reminder to keep yourself grounded while on your path of discovery. On this journey, you will explore that with another, you easily find true riches within yourself and within others. Then, when you share the riches, you create a network of amazing awareness. Kym Loc

Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being's suffering. Not career, not wealth, not intelligence, certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we're going to survive with dignity. -Audrey Hepburn
A 36 by 36" ebony background
is a bewitching cloak for this un-escorted tree to showcase her character of her
caring. She is crowned by a wine colored a celestial body. This moon blooms
into a violet orb of night when light is reflected in a different direction.
Far off mountains highlight her roots with the same enlightening hue. Her body
is textured with innocent white, charming black and an illuminating color
changing red. These colors travel to her branches which reach out to spread
compassion to others. They are adorned with wisps of gold and red flora to
remind us that having and showing dignity is beautiful. -Kym Loc
