This fun little abstract 8" x 8" was a special request.  The larger abstract from which the request was initiated measures 24" x 30" x 1.5" and is available for purchase from me.  To see it please view my website: HERE

I'm working on pulling out of a creative block.  I have posted before about embracing this time as it is part of the process, but it is so difficult when you want to be working, working, working.  This morning  I pulled a book out of my library that I first read many years ago and have since read probably a dozen times.  Each time that I re-read it, it's as if it has something new to tell me.  As I opened it this morning I began reading where I had left off months ago.  

"In most cases an integral part of giftedness from God is not only the mechanical ability to paint or sing or dance but a deeper call.  This call can be seen as part of an aesthetic value system, a system that helps determine what is beautiful and what is not."  Scribbling in the Sand, Christ and Creativity by Michael Card. p. 80

When I think of how vastly prolific you have been, I'm thinking less blocked as just needing time to replenish. Wonderful quote, I've not read the book as yet.
