How can I tell that the image from 2019 is not the completed painting? For one thing, the light is missing from the bee’s eye.
During the Center for Action and Contemplation’s Conspire Retreat, Mirabai Starr invited retreat participants to “scoop the light into your eyes” as she chanted a prayer in front of the candles.
The ritual caught my breath.
“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.
