"Focus" re-purposes three old die cut patterns, each approx. 12 inch square. The patterns intrigued me with their interesting design and focal center shape, which got me thinking, what would I put in the focal point? As I reflected on my life, several vital themes rose to the surface: the quality of my faith, the quality of my love for others, and the quality of my stewardship of our planet; all areas of life where I spend a lot of myself. In each central shape I painted icons representing those areas where I spend much of the focus of my life. What do you spend your life focused on?
