In this day’s images I see the importance of seeking hidden treasures.
The images begin with a caricature of me created by an artist friend, Juan Carlos, in El Salvador. My family and I had the privilege to financially support Juan Carlos’s education while getting to know him and his family as dear friends. [Confession: All my life, I had wanted to have a caricature done, but was too shy to make it happen. Imagine my delight when this came unsolicited in the mail!]
Being one who tends to sit more comfortably in solitude, for me, this day’s images invite me to lean into the love of community, seeking the treasure there.
How about you? Where’s the hidden treasure for you?
WAY back from the archives… Here I am as a little junior cheerleader. My mom says that I used to love going to the games and matches that my dad coached, so they put me in a uniform and gave me a community to care for me.
“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?
A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
