Inner Sanctum


This is the first piece of art I've done in months, since moving the gallery, my daughter's wedding in Santa Barbara, moving my youngest on her miraculous journey to a boarding school in Monterey, CA., and having another daughter's incredible band HumanLab (http://www.myspace.com/humanlab) and friends in my home in for 3 weeks, while they were doing gigs around NW Montana. I'm also trying to find work and figure out how to hold on, have put my house up for sale, while 3 girls have moved back home & a grandbaby! Life has been full to say the least!!
So in the midst of it all, I've needed to find that quiet place where I can process, and be at peace. Such a reminder came as my next art assignment for the "Lucky 13" group I've been apart of, with a new theme each month to then pass on to the next in the group of 13 artists. This subject of "inner sanctum" has also brought me to this meditation by Rumi...."Worldly power means nothing. Only the unsayable, jeweled inner life matters. Everything you want and need is inside you."
So to "be still and know that He is God" is the resting place, where I know that "everything is working together for good".

You certainly need an inner sanctum with all that is going on and you made a lovely piece to remind you to listen to that still, small voice. I've recently renewed my interest in mandelas and I see that you've included one of the sacred ones.
