wizard in a duel with scientist, illustration

Duel between Magic and Science

I’ve seen them meet on the pages on many books, articles and places. Standing back to back waiting and ready, as in a duel, to confront each other with strong and sharp storytelling from very different worlds.

It is the right versus the left, the rational versus the intuitive, the truth versus the paradox. But to me these two perspectives, these two old wizards, professors, experts, seers or what ever-changing names reality puts on them, look like they know each other quite well.

That was enough illustration for today, the rest of the day I spent in company with the printed watercolors of Winslow Homer.

I’ve been studying his watercolors today (again) and copying a few of them.
