This is literally a visualization of an attempt to raise the level of consciousness of a business networking group. The red line moves upwards tentatively, but gets up to the upper red goal. The lines on the sides are literally lines of measurement. There are conflicts from the nay-sayers in the dark lines that push down. But it is overcome by the generally upward thrust and cheerful colors.
The large dark unknown dominates the painting, but the dark has glimmers of light in it. The dark line and chaotic red/purple shape are very alive and thrashing. The orange arc sweeps effortlessly over the blue divide to the sunny yellow band. The pink line dances happily.

Hapkido is the way of the water. You don't fight strength, you use the strength to your advantage. The yellow octagon is my sidekick to managing to move back to NYC from LA. In the end I expect my life to be happily flowing like the water.
