Art Description

Drawing: Ink, rubber stamp, Acrylic on Paper.

"The contest [between the wave and particle theories of light] is something like one between a shark and a tiger, each is supreme in its own element but helpless in that of the other."
-- Sir J.J. Thomson
In Fison Memorial Lecture (7 May 1925) at Guy’s Hospital Medical School, London, published as The Structure of Light: The Fison Memorial Lecture 1925 (1925), 15.

The Hammerhead Zen Chicken happened on the morning of my birthday. I found a hammerhead rubber stamp I had carved years ago but it had lost its tail. I found a flower carved at another time and they wanted to be together. I added the Japanese flowers stamps and some swirls of ink.

Spontaneous calligraphic drawing is part of my meditation practice.

After I process the file in Photoshop I look for a quotation to go with it to serve as an impromptu caption. Since I am attending Luanne Stovall's great Color Salons this term, I particularly like this scientific reflection on light, sharks, and tigers.
