“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” ~Genesis 1:1

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." ~Genesis 2:7

“Every person is a God in embryo. Its only desire is to be born.” ~Deepak Chopra

    Fantastic work and congratulations

  • Thank you so much for stopping by and the favorite Shulie. Do you see the image of figures in the lower right corner? I think it looks like a man and a woman standing facing creation. Other people see angels…

    You are an amazing artist and your features are
    well deserved. I always wanted to travel to
    Japan, but Spain, London and Italy are my
    preferences. You live on a small island that
    sounds wonderful as is your fascinating
    artistry!! I am so glad to view your stunning
    work and hope you post this piece to our group!!

  • I spent a little time in London when I was on my way to India:)

    I confess that I am drawn to cultures in need, and really want to go back to India, but to other places in Africa and the Middle East.

    Okinawa, Japan is beautiful…but we may be moving to Europe soon…I would like to end up in Italy, as my roots are from there, so I think it is essential to connect with my ancestry.

    Thank you always for your beautiful comments~ If you ever decide to visit Japan, you should come here to be a guest in our home by the sea:)

    Leila, this is a work of art! There is so much to view and understand it takes me on a journey of the Eternal Flame; reminding me the warmth of the fire and our very simple basic needs. If more of us lived by these principles I think we would be happier. You have created four Sacred Spaces from which we can draw energy and love and light. It is so important to remember who we really are and to acknowledge that light within.You have a passion for living and it reflects in your wonderfully inspiring work! Wishing you a creative week; sending you a big healing hug….Love and light….always!Sx

  • Thank you dearly Sophie~ Your comments and encouragement always propel me into new realms of inspiration and creation. You assure me that my work is felt as well as seen….and this is what is most important to me. Thank you so very much for the gift of you. Namaste~
