Traditionally, "subjugate" would be a word used to describe humans dominating over other humans... but here, I wanted to illustrate nature dominating human and that was the word that repeated in my mind while I was painting.
This is one way to characterize both my distress and respect for nature...I fear the smallest dominators in nature... bacteria, viruses, cancers....and I revere the greatest in nature...sun, ocean, mountains. I also fear the knowledge that nature will take care of humans in order to save itself if it must.
So here, I will just lie down and allow my bacterium to contribute to a flower, and accept this force that is greater than I.
I will probably paint and draw this subject a few more times in order to allow myself more consideration on this subject.
