Glory of the West set free
bonkerz. Here is a link to the previous blogged version Glory of the West. I wanted a loose piece and I tightened it up when I placed the trees and rocks on the sides. I knew so the moment I started to block them in however I "shoulded" myself into depicting them. The word "shoulded" is important. Among many of her teachings, I was taught by Bobbie Clemmons the importance of word usage. Finding strength in "I could," "I might," and "I will" negating ever having to be made to as in "should". It may seem a silly thing but for me it makes a lifetime of a difference especially when I pay attention to my self talk or revise it. Bobbie spurred changes in my life through her example and teaching. So today I dedicate the "unshoulding" re-creation of my artwork "Glory of the West" in her memory. Peace be to my extended family at this time of our loss of beloved Barbara (Bobbie) Hunt Lawson Clemmons, September 6, 1929 - May 11, 2008.
