Way of the Monk, Path of the Artist

Well, it has been a long time since I have written very much.  It is a combination of needing rest and well, needing rest.  Currently I am taking a class at Abbey of the Arts with Christine Paintner.  We created wisdom cards as one of our first exercises.  The idea behind wisdom cards is that you ask yourself significant questions and then go about creating art with these questions in mind.  In this case, my questions were:
  • Where is my path?
  • How do I get there?
  • What are the obstacles?

The questions were developed and randomly put on the backs of the art canvases.  So the creations are then coupled to the questions in a way unknown by the author/artist.

The response, in mixed media (watercolor and collage) is:

Where is my path?
What are the obstacles?
How Do I Get There?
How Do I Get There?
