Part of my work in this world, is helping women learn to love and value themselves, no matter their circumstances. I read the book “Captivating” by John and Stasi Eldredge, many years ago and it was one of those books that changed my perception of myself as a woman. One of my favorite realizations from the book was this…”Given the way creation unfolds, how it builds to ever higher and higher works of art, can there be any doubt that Eve is the crown of creation? Not an afterthought. Not a nice addition like an ornament on a tree. She is God’s final touch, his ‘piece de resistance’. She fills a place in the world nothing and no one else can fill.” How amazing is that?! God’s creation was incomplete without us! Happy International Women’s Day!
A ceramic relief given to me 25 years ago still makes me smile each time I see it. I just love the irreverent play on Michaelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” in all its details. I have no idea who created this piece, but I hope they’re still out there working today and sharing their keen insight.
I have been so intrigued by Michaelangelo and his work these past months. It's safe to say that he has inspired me to play around with naturalism and realism, keep an eye out for new pieces coming your way😉 #creationofeve#thefeelsartistry
