Farewell for Now

I am hoping and praying to put on a show of all the Moroccan work I have done this past year - sometime this fall. Until that time, this blog is going to just rest. I have a couple of art adventures to attend to, so art strictly with Morocco in mind may not happen for a couple of months. I have enjoyed sharing this journey with you.

Thank you for your encouragement and support in so many ways as I worked in Morocco, and then processed that experience back home. It's been an amazing experience.

In a very real way, I have art in my suitcase and I am heading on out to help others make art and share life and our stories. Blessings to you all!

Portrait Drawing

I have left off making Moroccan art until I return home from Nicaragua - which will be very soon. Today, I drew a portrait of a well-regarded pastor from Central America. He was one of the key speakers in Honduras when I traveled there. Another pastor asked me to do it for a thank you gift.

Tomorrow, I hope to put down some finishing touches, and then present it tomorrow night.

Final Collage - Girl Living in Boxes

I am working on this final collage today, and I will post a photo this evening. I am now hoping to finish up all my Morocco work for some sort of show in the fall. It is a dream at the moment, but when I return to my home in August, I am looking forward to settling in for a year of art making and encouraging others to make art at a more tranquil pace.

The time I have spent in Nicaragua has helped in me being able to just sit and enjoy God's creation, or enjoy a Spanish conversation of sorts or just enjoy playing with the children.
