My New Friend

This one is for her. Jade for rest and peace. The Healing Hand for, well, healing.

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
Anaïs Nin

This page is based on Colossians 1:13-14:

He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His Beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 

I am memorizing the book of Colossians, and every time I get to this verse, I tear up.

This page has several layers, 6 or 7. The very bottom is painted completely with black gesso on which I penciled everything dark that has passed through my life in the past year. I then covered it with subsequent layers, one of them being completely white. The text handwritten in the background is all poetry from the book of Psalms. The hymn is "Two Little Hands." The picture is my sister and I at 22 months, and the book my sister is holding is our mother's Bible. Poppies are my current favorite flower - I cannot get enough of them and sadly, I cannot get them to grow in my garden! They symbolize fantastic extravagance.

This piece is about being rescued.

My Golden Thread

I made this ATC (Artist Trading Card) today. The music is Goldberg Variation #12, my favorite of the variations. To me, it symbolizes pure friendship with a hint of longing. The flowers are Phlox which is sometimes called the David Flower, symbolizing united souls.

Here's to friendship.
