Truth is in the Eye of the Beholder

This is part of the series Garden of Truth.

I started out on social media asking people about their truths.
Like Beauty, Truth is in the eye of the beholder.

When I made this piece I knew what it was, but others did not. So their idea of what it depicted was all over the board. Some people thought it was Georgia Okeefe inspired….. some thought it was a landscape on its side.

Really….. it was a photo I took in spring of a sidewalk. It was damp and had salt stains on it.

See it now?
