"Intimate Voices"

The following three works were created for my group show,"Intimate Voices",  being held at the Downtown Studio Art Gallery of Pikes Peak Community College from February 24 -March 24, 2017.  For my portion of the exhibit, I painted three series: "New Science",  "Birthing Modern English", and "The Journey". Each series consists of  four paintings based on ideas from my study of contemporary science, language, and spirituality. These fields have held a life- long fascination for me.

describe the everyday world of classical physics?

Fortunately for Mr. Cat, no!
