Creating Lifts Us from the Mundane Experience

Portrait of the Creation of Art
Try to see this lifeline from varying points of view: Imagine yourself taller than the quilt shape. Then imagine yourself as small as the tiny objects at the bottom. Is there a change in your perception about what the drawing means?

To my mind, this drawing illustrates the mindset of artistic creation: the creator takes what is tossed around as normal, rethinks it, and makes it into something enlightening to experience.

Many people are artists at living life. It is never an easy process, but usually the complexities of love are sewn in there somewhere.

Here is a group effort that is pulling in the talent and hearts of many.
The concept was originally inspired by Lisa, above, when she lost her mother.
