New Direction........


For a long time I have been interested in relics and other religious icons. I have accumulated many little trinkets and pictures but wasn't sure how or when I would use them. Since I have been home sick, I started playing with several of them and completed this box. This is a completely different direction for me, but I think I like it........If you have any suggestions, PLEASE FEEL FREE to comment! I always like a good critique and you guys are all so talented that I would really take it to heart!

Lin, I love the style, and to me it is totally acceptable. Religious symbolism is as old as art itself. Most art was religious until after the Renaissance, which was the 1400's.... Its thought provoking, too. sis

I am in love with this piece! I too have come to really love the religious icons (and I am not even Catholic)....so when I saw this on your blog today I was really excited!! Very inspiring, lovely, and perfect! You did a wonderful job! Would like one on a canvas like the little canvases I bought from you. If that ever happens, please let me know!

LOVE THIS! Thought the matchbox was a great addition....and was going to say I think you should burn some edges of an element or two....THEN noticed your little paper rolled things lining the box and edge and they appear to be burned - are they? Clever girl. Awesome. Fun to see this, it is so handsome.

What a clever idea to roll prayer papers and stack them along the side.
