The seeds of reality take root in my imagination. Just between wishing and believing, there is dreaming. Art builds a passage across the winding waters of aspiration to bridge the landscape of our inner world with the form and function of actuality.
My newest dream seed takes hape on a 4 inch by 4 inch piece of card stock that is the base of an art card. It will join a collection of cards created by me, my friends, family and a blend strangers have met over the course of the last 5 years. It has been about that long since I discovered the artist trading card craze…and decided to join it. My card size is not typical, but creativity is about process over perfection.
This Dream Seed Card reflects my readiness to move out of the passive mood I have been in this Summer. I have been practicing some much needed self-care and rest after a long journey through grad school and the death of a close friend. Ahead of me waits the next stage in my journey toward professional development, a national exam. My card reflects a choice to approach studies for the exam with patience, peace, and a sense of belief in my ability to succeed. Grace and gratitude will help me get the grade. I am looking forward to the challenge.
This dream board was inspired by an open invitation from http://jamieridlerstudios.ca to create monthly Full Moon Dream Boards. This month is the Full Sturgeon Moon.
