I read this book a few years ago titled the Moral Landscape by author Sam Harris, In it he considers there to be a "hypothetical space representing human well being which encompasses all human experiences. The peaks of this landscape are the heights of prosperity, and the valleys represent the depths of human suffering". Ever since I read that it got me thinking about what that might look like visually. What would my own personal moral landscape look like, with it's own peaks and valleys, and how would it interact with those around me? 

This is an original oil painting on an Apollon Elephant birch panel.
