vivid consciousness


in describing his agnosticism, albert einstein uses the term "vivid consciousness" which i really relate to. it's a wonderfully descriptive pair of words when thinking of science and humanity, as well as art and religion.

this is my first experience with a blog called inspire me thursday. the challenge was to use an albert einstein quote as inspiration for a piece of art. i love blurring the lines between arts and crafts, in fact, i have decided that my new year's resolution for 09 will be to identify as both an artist and a crafter. both have merit in terms of creative expression.

each element in this postcard has symbolism for me, right down to the glue dots that adhere the translucent circles to the foundation. it was great fun to create!

    I know what you mean about blurring the lines between art and craft, I feel the same way. Welcome to Inspire Me Thursday!
