Fabric Of Life

Seems like forever since I've posted anything; I've been busy with a personal project all winter.  This is another experiment with mixed media using inks, stamps, stencils and acrylics that I painted last fall. The cross is interwoven and embedded in a quilt like fabric image which represents the busy, distracting, conflicting, yet beautiful life around us.  I see this as the workings of Christ embedded in life and cannot be separated.  The many names of Jesus are added here and there throughout this piece.  This is a God inspired image as the idea came to me clearly one day and as I worked it just fell into place; that rarely happens as I usually have to dig long and deep when not working with realism.  I'm so pleased with this image that I would love to see this piece reworked on a large scale.  The original piece is 11x14 inches on stretched canvas.
