It's been awhile since I wrote my last post. My body and mind have been preoccupied since mid-January when I broke my ankle and had surgery. As my body healed, I found myself naturally prioritizing my focus. My mind was focussed on my body; healing, learning to walk again, strengthening my muscles, and becoming active once again. I am now on the other side of that journey. I feel whole again.
As I was in the middle of being laid up, I would think about how hard it must be for people that don't have hope of healing. Someone that has a chronic disease or lost a limb doesn't have ability to look forward to being on the other side of it. I was thankful for the fact that I knew, this too shall pass.
As I began to feel more like working on my art, I came up with the start of a project called "The Other Side". We sometimes get stuck where we are and can only imagine what it might look like on the other side of something. In this project I am looking through something (a window, a divider, a shadow) to see and wonder what it is like on the other side of it.
Here are a few of the images. Now that I am actually on the other side, I will feel like creating more. Look for this new project on my website in the next month.
I'm so glad to be back!
