We are all made of stars

For several hours today the people of our country were united in awe of a spectacular moon shadow show. Since I don’t reside in the path of totality, I decided to paint instead. Once I made the main image using a stencil and acrylic paint I thought about the knots tying everything together and how today’s eclipse connected all of us. We probably weren’t thinking about what divides us while the moon covered the sun revealing a magnificent corona of magnificent white light.

While I sanded the layers of paint to reveal the fiery orange underneath I thought of what it means to be human. What came to mind most was how important it is to love one another because we are all made of the same elements and we all have hearts. We are all a celestial family. The same as the sun, the moon and the stars.
