“Above all else, know this:  Be prepared at all times for the gifts of God and be ready always for new ones.  For God is a thousand times more ready to give than we are to receive.” — Meister Eckhart   [Source: http://www.inspirational-quotations.com/faith-quotes.html]

The View from my Studio: The Walkers

Bob and I recently decided to work with Espirational as our “brand” so to speak.  That means my art blog is now closed.  We now have Espirational.com (this blog) and Espirational.org (Bob’s blog).  I will be talking about my art under the topic header of The View from my Studio.

I don’t sit in my studio eight hours a day cranking out art.  I couldn’t if I tried.  My work comes and goes along with new inspiration.  Sometimes inspiration leads to more that one finished work.  I am intrigued by Sacred Geometry — especially circles.  So I decided to play with labyrinths a little.  There may eventually be more  “Walkers,” who knows?
