All this month we are celebrating the Grand Opening of our Espirational Gallery.  I will be talking about my creative process for a few of my works throughout the month.  I decided to start with The World’s Gone Crazy, but I’m Okay.

The Story Behind The World’s Gone Crazy, But I’m Okay.

I consider all of my work spiritual even if it may not have an overtly spiritual theme.  But The World’s Gone Crazy is definitely and obviously spiritual.

While living in the city, before we moved to the lake I was world weary.   Waking up every morning to the news of more violence and death I was becoming overwhelmed and afraid.  I was saying “The Prayer for Protection a lot during those days and finally decided to try to put my feelings into art.

What I came up with was the world going crazy (the background is loosely a “crazy quilt”) while I was in the middle of it all surrounded by the White Light of God’s Presence knowing that

“The LIght of God Surrounds me.

The Love of God Enfolds me.

The Power of God Protects me.

The presence of God Watches Over me.

Wherever I am God is.”

— James Dillet Freeman
