The Wide Plain of Death

I placed one foot
on the wide plain of death,
and some grand immensity
sounded on the emptiness.

I have felt nothing ever
like the wild wonder of that moment.

-- Rumi, from A Year with Rumi

What an amazing image! Beautiful! Love the Rumi words, too, of course.

Thanks, Joyce! This is the first painting I've done that awakens an emotional response in me other than "I like this one" or "I don't like this one..."
