Flying by Anne Arden McDonald
This is one of my favorite images that is on the cover of Anne Arden McDonald's book, Installations and Self Portraits.
So evocative and joyful, a great distraction to the onslaught of dreary news.
Taking part in the creative process is a wonderful counterpoint to the times. It is thru the creative process that we become once again connected to our humanity and a state of grace.
"Art, in all its forms, feeds and nurtures the soul of a society; provokes thought and debate; causes critical thinking; and fosters understanding of things foreign to our own immediate world. In the end, arts plays a primary role in encouraging healthy tolerance of the diversity in any culture. And, in my opinion, that is something profoundly worthy of protecting..." Robert Redford
