Worry in Dreaming

In this mixed media piece (13 x 15 inches), the dreaming figure is anguished; he is worrying he won't have enough money and is frantically searching the city for more. Fortunately, when we wake up from a worrying dream, we can contemplate other perspectives and even find deep solace from wise souls. Thanks for stopping by! : )

"The World is Broad and Wide"

"Be patient, for the world is broad and wide." William Shakespeare
My "patchwork" landscape was painted in oils on an 8 by 8 inch canvas. Thanks for visiting! : )

Threading an Elephant through the Eye of a Needle

The inspiration for my humble linocut is a wonderful story from the Vedas: One day Narada visited a cobbler. Now the cobbler was deeply devoted to the worship of Vishnu, the lord of creation. To the amazement of the cobbler, Narada mentioned he had just returned from a visit to Vishnu. The cobbler asked excitedly, "What was he doing?" Narada replied, "He was threading an elephant through the eye of a needle." The cobbler then picked up a seed and exclaimed, "Oh, that's not surprising! Inside this seed is an enormous tree, ready to come out at the right time. So of course He was threading an elephant through the eye of a needle!"
Thank you for visiting and have a great week!
