A few days ago my wife and I returned from a 9-week adventure in India. While I was certainly braced for adventure, I had no idea how much this trip would inspire my art.
The first half of the the trip was a 4-week spiritual retreat and pilgrimage. In the course of hours of meditation and other spiritual practice, it became clearer than ever to me that my art had to become the focus of my life right now.
Then, for the following 5 weeks, we journeyed throughout northern India. Along the way, we were exposed to countless examples of the famous Islamic-style art and architecture. I have come back with dozens of new ideas for pieces based on these motifs. Stay tuned for these to start appearing in the coming weeks and months.
