Red heaven, blue heaven.Posted: February 1, 2013
I’ve made the pleasant discovery that all my art looks better when held up to the light.
Above is the Arabic letter “faa,” which begins “falasha,” or butterfly. And below is a gift I made for Pacz Tours, an awesome adventure company in San Ignacio. (Depicted: the entrance to the cave. The water is really that color.)
And now that I think about it, I realize that all my visual art is pretty much about trying to recreate the stained glass windows at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lebanon, PA, the church I went to as a schoolgirl. I can’t find any pictures. But the impossibly deep red reds and blue blues of heaven, as depicted in those windows, are seared into my memory.
