Those are some wild skies< Markskor!

I've been traveling too much to have enough time for anything, but I did get to try a couple of sunsets recently. The first is in Chaco Canyon.

The second at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. (like I said, lots of traveling!)

I saw them for a while, and then got the google (-) symbol. Paul, you need to make the pictures and the album public, I think.

I think I do see it Russ and Bobby. It's difficult because Paul's art is abstract, and symbolic. In the painting titled "Zimbabwe" the larger dark circle, held within the thin white circle clearly signifies Africa's dreaded colonial history, and the ongoing racial tension on that continent. The horizontal bar at the center of the inner black circle is less clear to me. Had the bar been painted in a diagonal slash, it would have denoted "forbidden," as in the forward slashes through dogs or campfires in our trailhead signs. Perhaps the lowering of the center bar represents a lessening of tension... and optimism for the future?
But then we find exactly the same symbol for the painting titled "Chaco Canyon?" By duplicating the same symbol, I believe that Paul is using the power of repetition to show how Manifest Destiny in North America, and our dominance of Native Peoples mirrors the colonial history of Africa.

Paul, your art is deep and meaningful! Thanks for sharing. ;)

OK. Sorry about that. Here's a new one--sunset in the Southwest...

Does that work?
