Every Window Tells a Different Story - Ongoing

The window series I am working on is now titled Every Window Tells a Different Story - Ongoing.
I find myself replacing or swapping out windows in the installation and plan on building additional panels so ongoing it is. 

I have had more interest in patrons wanting to buy some of the individual windows.  So far I have sold one and am holding off selling any more right now.

I will keep you posted but may not have additional panels to show until December.

I am curious to see how all this unfolds.

The Creative Process and letting it unfold.

It is pretty cold here in Novelty Ohio. I woke up this morning and the temperature reading was 14 degrees. March 15th and 14 degrees.

I have been doing much cleaning and organizing in the studio which is one of the reasons why I have not been posting images of new work. That and the fact that my phone will not let me send off images right now. Back to using the designated camera I guess.

My mind is focused on the creative process right now anyway. I have been a bit distracted by looking at botany. I'm a bit smitten right now with the protective function of the sepal on a flower. 
When I think about Buddhist iconography I wonder if their is any reference to the function of the sepal in relationship to the lotus.
This curiosity seemed worth sharing.  Here is an explanation of the meaning of the lotus flower in Buddhism.
https://buddhists.org/buddhist-symbols/the-meaning-of-the-lotus-flower-in-buddhism/

I just need time for the creative process to unfold before diving in again with the making.
