Truth's Edge by skiphunt Truth's Edge by skiphunt
Finally it became painfully clear. The just truth sliced without regard and even the least of them had no choice but to see.

No more pithy holes to crawl into... No more shadow to conceal... No more refuge.

They could finally see all. Clever... they feigned to claim the righteous judgement had blinded them. They screamed and writhed within the light to no avail.

All they knew was not.

No denying... the white-hot truth scorched their belligerent coverings until they had no choice...

but to admit they'd been lied to.


Architectural detail somewhere in Mexico.

I can't believe that blue! I was wandering your gallery the other day and this one really stuck in my mind. Had to come back and favorite it. *_*

a hole in the wall... now you can see the other side, the true light.

the prose goes perfectly with this.... i love the stark contrast between the wall, and what the wall is hiding (the sky)

all of your art is so meaningful- you put things in a new light :)

just that blue is way too blue... it makes me think about the blue death

If you read the image description/prose it's supposed to have an overly bright and glaring feel to it. So... if you think it's so glaring that it gives you an uneasy feeling... then it's done it's intended job. ;-)

georgia o'keefe's work keeps coming to mind everytime i view this.
i guess that's appropriate though.
it's like a beautiful abstract minimalistic painting.
excellant and effective cropping.
and as always, i love the description.
well done.

No-one seems to be commenting on the words!

Which are excellent. I hope people read the heavy irony in the last line. And I wish it would be more widely read than only on DA.
