Vital Signs

Introducing “Vitals Signs“, painting number 4 in my Light Laughter Series. The title fits in with the end of year tradition of pausing to take measure of what matters and to find a healthy direction (arrows included) for the coming new year.

Vital Signs original painting by Alison Shull

For me this image is a visual intermingling of the physical and the philosophical. I “see” pulsating, oscillating vital signals measured and graphically displayed by dispassionate hospital room equipment abstracted into the intangible, impassioned vitality of life itself.  Yeah -heavy idea, light painting.

A certain vital someone told me she doesn’t like this title.  She says I should have just named it “Sophie’s Favorite”. Gotta like that critique!
