Nothing is Everything

by Hope Doe

When the Cicadas (semi) come out start their songs here in Japan, it’s a sign that summer has come, and when the calls slowly fade away, summer it at it’s end.
This summer has been a hard one for me.  I have been dealing with inflammation in my arms and neck that still hasn’t healed yet, but getting better.

As a symbol of resurrection, it is very fitting to paint a cicada as my first painting in a 2 month hiatus from doing art.
