This piece is actually the first "cruciform" exploration that is informing my direction in art this year. My faith permeates my life, and there is a strong pull to put symbols of it in my art. Of course, this one is a literal interpretation of the cruciform genre, but as the year progresses, I plan to be even more abstract in my exploring. The colors in the abstract background speak to chaos and wounding. Ink scribbles and words are randomly placed, adding to that feel of disjointedness. All of this color and the mark making is over a base ground of gold acrylic...the first layer of gold represents the idea that God has all the storms, all the chaos, all the circumstances of our lives under His watchful eye, these things are not beyond Him and His power to heal and transform. The words and musical notes of the song "Amazing Grace" are collaged in the shape of a cross, its shape more defined by broad strokes of paint...

This beautiful piece is formed on 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.

I have always been a collector of things. I remember gathering pretty pebbles in a baby food jar, chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I lived on as a girl. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the porch windowsill where we could admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there through that winter, the frigid temperatures causing the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful. I've never outgrown the wonder of finding the surprise of beauty in the ordinary rhythms of life. For me, my art and my calling to help others are an extension of my passion for gathering together fragments and bits of beauty from around my world... And that is what I want to help you with. To discover the quiet beauty and remarkable peace that waits to be discovered in the ordinary, commonplace, collected moments that color the masterpiece that is your life! {In expressing ourselves creatively, we are inspired and inspire others!
