The Transit of Venus

I was climbing Mt Amos on the actual Transit of Venus in 2004. In 2007 the experience lured me to depiction – to draw out its essence. As a personal act of creation, this drawing consolidated and confirmed revelations that emerged both during and after the Transit. And my own father passed way whilst I drew out its spirit.
