I came up with the idea for ‘live’ nearly two years ago and it's been a thrill to see 'live' come alive this summer. Using the concept of the magnets I sell at local artisan markets, 'live' is a colorful arrangement of wooden shapes, each piece displaying a word meant to challenge, encourage or inspire the viewer to live life to the fullest. So, basically, it's a collage of words that are "good things to do" such as simplify, laugh, listen, teach and pray. As you view my work, I hope that you will examine your life... Reflect on the past, the present and what lies ahead. Weigh your circumstances, attitude and behavior. Consider God, others, yourself and your environment. Contemplate change and decide to live.
