The art piece I am featuring is the newly dubbed "Cosmosis Pine Cone" (still expressed as - "All is One, One is All"). This art piece is one of my many favorites.
Cosmosis Pine came second after my first art creation the "Seed of Life Mandala". This is where my interest really heightened while using the pointillism technique, I was starting to explore the part of myself that I never knew I could in anyway other way than this.
Cosmosis Pine took me on a long enduring journey through self-realization; with the amount of uncountable dots I was willing to do that is where I learned how to manage patience, acceptance of tedious acts (such as dotting for hours), and ultimately steady meditation (where the first two go hand in hand with meditation, if looking at it from a Buddhist perspective I feel).
It was with this art piece I really got hooked into expressing my being through this form of artwork.
Cosmosis Pine took me about 50 hours but it could be more or less. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of time while in the trance of creation. I normally don't time myself while dot working because I either lose track, forget to time and or feel as if I shouldn't time myself creating anything at all and just "be" in the now with whatever it is.
"The inspiration for the Cosmosis Pine Cone came about when I was outside and picked up a cone. While looking at it I visualized the center, a sort of eye as a central consciousness for itself, not separate from the tree it fell from.
Within each scale that holds the seeds were another set of individual consciousnesses of the tree that makes it all one.
Whichever seeds are to grow is part of the life fractal system of the pine tree, ever growing and continuing its journey. It’s just as simple as that and why I created this piece as gratitude to the pine tree for everything it is.
I’ve always felt deeply connected to the pines and find them to be a very wisdom tree, surviving on this earth for what’s claimed to be 140 million years! They were around when the dinosaurs roamed this planet, of course among other trees too, but when I look at the Pine itself I feel within a knowing that it’s an ancient spirit here with us."
