This is the piece of digital art that I created to accompany my Icon Alchemy astrology blog post for April 21st, 2017

While it's not one of my better pieces, it is what felt most appropriate for the twists and turns of the day's astrological happenings.  Which of course is a reminder that what makes for "good art" sometimes isn't what is most visually appealing, but what will convey a mood, or a message.  This is why I've long had admiration for artists whose work I don't necessarily enjoy looking at, but who have been particularly timely with their work, instrumental in shaping the zeitgeist of their era.  Not that I think any of the pieces I create for these updates are anything particularly groundbreaking, but still they have their place.

That said, I do enjoy the amount of negative space in this - for all the activity of the central path, there is still a vast stillness around it.
