After a very relaxing long weekend in Estes Park, I received word that my entry in this year's National Small Prints Show was accepted, and was added to the traveling exhibit. This is an image I started to draw shortly before my sister died more than two years ago. I did nothing with it until July of this past year. I was finally ready to get back to work on some printmaking.
The ladder in the image is an exploration of how the ascension to God and his mysteries often seems impossible. I cannot yet untangle the suffering and growth in my spiritual journey over the past two years. I am learning that comfort comes during suffering, and sometimes richness is found in wanting. What seems impossible to you?
