  Description
 
This oil on canvas board painting is in the Collection of Marcia Smilack.  

From the few extant fragments of Anaximander of Miletus (mid-6th century BCE) we learn that he believed the beginning or first principle (arche, a word first found in his writings, and which he probably invented) is an endless, unlimited mass (apeiron), subject to neither old age nor decay, which perpetually yields fresh materials from which everything which we can perceive is derived.

The process of artmaking often brings Anaximander to mind, as does my fascination with the interplay of depth and perception.

The “For Anaximandra,” in the title of this small painting is not a misspelling of his name so much as a tribute to my female cat.  She was named in his honor and I adopted her shortly after I completed this piece.
