Fading Paradox was inspired by the majestic sunrises and sunsets here in Oregon. The magical hours full of colors that meld and fracture along the sky, kissed by wispy clouds. I find myself lost in their delicate beauty; it is as if the sky was being painted with an artist’s palette. It is a moving and ever-changing masterpiece that lives in a fleeting moment.
