Finding my way...

All Paths Lead Home

detail of bottom and top

  Much of my work explores home as a personal narrative and All Paths Lead Home (pictured above) kind of brings that idea full circle.  It doesn't answer all the questions in the middle but it offers a sense of comfort, courage and connection as we wander. This piece started with all the colorful and text filled houses laid out like a quilt, but it was the magical cobblestone path that began very late one night in the studio that pulled this piece together. Once I build and paint the frame this afternoon it will be complete and ready for etsy. Warm wishes for a lovely weekend!

ps:  has anyone ever lost access to a flickr account? 
 i accidentally created a new account and i can't regain access to my old one : (

Ooh la la, what a beauty! :)

Sorry about your flickr acct. Sadly, I don't have any advice - but maybe email admin. They're a friendly bunch.

Have a great weekend!

Love Love Love! I think the imagery and the thoughts behind the piece are beautiful and really makes one contemplate their own path. Great job!

thank you for the kind words.
this piece was something else entirely the 1st day i laid it out and then in an instant i saw it differently and started cutting houses and laying them out like quilt pieces...then i knew this piece was a story.
