“The Bridge to Nirvana” was started live at Rootwire Music and Arts Festival 2013 with no intentions for what it would become. As I continued to paint, the story that I see within it began to emerge. I see this painting as a depiction of the path of life. It carries us through our ups and downs, points of rest and clarity, and constant confrontation with mortality. All the path choices eventually lead to the same destination (Nirvana), even through the countless reincarnations endured to get there.
