A new piece which actually has been altered just a bit since the photo was taken. It was inspired by the lovely metal cross I found in the Goodwill bins on my last visit there.
I grew up in a devoutly Catholic family, was nearly ushered into a nunnery at a young age, but managed to escape such a life (thankfully....it wouldn't have been pretty). I ran away from religion, found my own "spirituality" which helps me get through life, and yet, at times, I feel compelled to dabble with the icons of my youth. What statements these works make, if any, are vague at best, but still the urge remains to jump in with crosses and Madonnas, milagros and gothic arches.
