WIND ON THE LAKE
Oil on canvas, 54 x 40 in., Private Collection,

Archival print available in multiple sizes
The title for this work comes from Inner
Truth, the 61st hexagram, in the I Ching,
the Chinese Book of Changes. It says,
“The wind blows over the lake and stirs the
surface of the water. Thus visible effects
of the invisible manifest themselves.” The
mother and child move on the rippling
water with no visible means of support. So
much in life seems to arise from unseen
causes.
