Why I Paint Bones

Bones are the last parts to disintegrate, after a creature dies and returns to the Earth. To me these represent the essential things— the ones we keep in our spiritual core. These are the beliefs that give us a solid foundation, upon which we may flesh out our thoughts, words, and deeds. They remind me to always question myself— what is truly essential? As part of my advocacy for sustainable living, I am working on keeping only the things that I really need in life. While I’m quite far from being a true minimalist, I do aspire to live up to the philosophy of “minimal consumerism”— that is, to live a life that is filled with love and family and friends and  health, as opposed to a life that is filled only with the latest fashions or the latest gadgets. I don’t mean to say that these are mutually exclusive— but I do have a limited amount of time, energy, and attention, and in giving these out, I feel that I should prioritize the things that truly matter.

Watercolor, 27 X 38 CM

I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along.
I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too.
I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I’ve come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them…
― Annie Dillard
