Here are the artist's comments on the painting,"Although I’m not really a proponent of astrology, I figure all the more hopeful that we can get these days, with whatever symbolism, the better. This painting is about the dawning of hope in these dark times, an awakening and rebirth for what already is, and for what is coming: the entrance into a new age. We are moving from control and dominance into a more peaceful, vibrant, and abundant good for all humanity. The subject matter is of a gourd, which represents the harvest of life, fertility, and rebirth. This aquarian water-bearer is grounded to the earth—juxtaposed with the vastness of the sea and sky, or infinity. This piece also contains the four elements of Nature: air, water, earth, and fire (the dawning sunlight)." Anderson's paintings are found in numerous collections, including the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, and are featured in the seminal book, Spirit of Place: Contemporary American Realism in the Landscape Tradition, by John Arthur. His work was purchased by this museum, and was included in the museum’s multi-city exhibition, entitled “Green Woods and Crystal Waters: The American Landscape Tradition.” Andra Norris Gallery in Burlingame, CA.
