Fantasy confronts reality. We can create our world as we would like it to be in our minds. Here we are limitless. It is only when we try to bring this world to a documentable reality that we are confronted with other fantasies looking to occupy the same real space. This is the world of winners and losers. Fortunately the rules of the game allow for losers to be virtual winners by achieving enlightenment in their fantasy space. While painting I encounter this same phenomenon. The various elements of the image compete for inclusion with the same kind of apologies. Arguing for legitimacy using the same tact, poise and reason as in our own 3-D world.
