I seriously need to get a life. Finished. The second piece of my religious icons.
Why did I choose to do icons that aren't main stream in American life? I work with many physicians around the world - Hindu, Sikh, Muslims, Christians, Jews - and I have learned that the world isn't just black and white. It's shades of everyone colour of every person who has touched my life over the years. Old boyfriends, lovers, friends, people I have met in my travels, pen pals from former years.
Perhaps it's my current belief that if one is truely not a hurtful person, if there is a reward - it will be bestowed on death. I believe that there is a God. But is it the only one? I don't know - and would never try and convince someone that there only one God. That's not my place on this planet.
I have at least 2 more icons planned in my series - a Star of David and a cross. Should I incorporate more icons into my series? If something was suggested, I might contemplate it.
I'm enjoying bead embroidery. I find it relaxing, almost meditative.
