Miracles, Mindfulness and Motion

I’ve been thinking about the idea of coincidence vs. miracle for a few days now.  Most people will frequently dismiss a serendipitous happening as a mere coincidence.  I on the other hand, believe in everyday miracles and love their occurrence in even the smallest moments. Like running late for a meeting and magically finding a parking spot right in front of the place you need to meet, making you on time.

So this morning I was thrilled by the message from our WIM (Women in Motion) leader Wanda, because it is helpful in tying my thoughts together. She sent us a link to a motivational slide show. The first screen includes a quote by Vivian Greene, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain!”

Tomorrow as I head to my New York art debut, I plan to be mindful of the miracles and keep moving forward.

Before leaving I began my exploration process for completing the assemblage that started with the sculpted head (now fired).  I decided to sculpt hands and feet. The gesture of the hands were inspired by Byzantine Icon figures.These 5 sculpted pieces will be combined with found objects to convey a narrative concept.

This is all pretty raw. I’m not sure how this will all come together. We can share in the discovery together.

About Babs

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.
