Did you catch my Susan Shie inspired eye? Part of what I love about her work is her figures always have a third eye - the inner eye. Well, though it was extremely difficult after looking at all her work NOT to paint in a third eye, I chose a bindi and put my eye in Buddha's hands. It's kind of symbolic of having the power to SEE the TRUTH in your own control.
My Dad is going to laugh because I was raised with lots of Buddhas around and for the longest time I wouldn't have been caught dead with one in MY house!! :) I had been exposed to these things all my life and I was just Buddha'd out. All things come full circle. This is the theme of my life at the moment.
Still working on my journal quilt and I want to finish quilting it today. I also finished this charity quilt for Cindy from my guild - I love the swirls! :) Lots going on around here - and it's wonderful to feel inspired!
