I started out by collaging the base with a few things that would be meaningful to my daughter. The first was a page from a dollar store bible. The second was a piece of sheet music from her trombone book (she's a music education major). The third was a copy of a poem written by her great-great-great grandmother. Because these things were all so important, I wanted to try to keep them showing through.
Artists in Blogland's monthly theme for March is "Passions" and this fits the bill for me. As I delve into my art, connecting to the things that are meaningful to me is the most important aspect. Connecting with the past (grandma) and the future (my daughter), finding my place in this world, living in the moment, appreciating the beauty around me, enjoying the journey, truly knowing myself, connecting with another heart, laughing, listening to the Whisper in the Wind.... What sets your heart on fire? Find it and never stop chasing it.
