Description

"Rising Above Tiny Town" is a gritty urban magic realist image from my surreal series "Tiny Town" which dwells in adulthood through a child's point of view.  I want to be able to access childhood, but than on the other hand, escape from it.  This image reminds me to embrace childhood, but the light hole looks good to escape too, bright, and forgiving.

"Rising Above Tiny Town", contains childhood memories wanting to be embraced and not embraced. A bright but distant nightlight exists, it runs through an ally, reaches for sky, and all is well, in Lipuma-land.
