Finding The Inner Pig

Well, now that Pigasus has shown the way of transcendent nature, i am feeling gratitude for this pink pig project. A desire to engage more in the visual arts is bubbling to the surface. Seishin has kindly invited me to a fantastic creative project in the community called You Cube. She gave me a cube, one of 108, with six sides each to be embellished with something visual based on these six questions:

*  what stops you?
*  what inspires or nourishes you?
*  who or what has been a negative influence on your life?
*  who or what has been a positive influence on your life?
*  create a self-portrait
*  what is your biggest dream or aspiration for yourself and/or humanity

This form of creating feels so new & exhilarating. i can honestly say i am bringing beginner's mind to this. And, in a sense, i am trying to still even that mind and go deeper to source for the "answers".

Seishin has been a conduit of this project to me but it's original source is from Cathy Key. Click on this link to You Cube Art
