This piece is entitled Visions and was created with imagery I captured while in Assisi, Italy working on my Thin Places project. It was created by fusing two photos. One image is of a fresco from the exterior of the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels, located just outside of Assisi. The other is of a medieval alleyway winding through the town. I like how the images work together to create the sense of a vision unfolding ahead. It conveys a trace of a thin place. This glimmer of the unknown-- that which is just beyond-- continues to draw me in.
I am very excited to continue my work exploring thin places. I will be traveling to Scotland May 30-June 8 to capture imagery to create a new body of work that portrays thin places. I am particularly interested in Iona, which is a very small island in Scotland that is considered a thin place. I am very eager to explore and experience this place!
But I wouldn't be doing this without the amazing support and encouragement of so many people! I am grateful for those who really "get" this project and want to see it succeed. A friend recently wrote me: "This is an exciting part of your art journey, life journey too... enjoy/share/create/teach... but most of all = GROW! " Thanks, my friend, I plan to!
