Where we live
Is no place to lose your wings
So love, love.
Could ever paint
A too wonderful
Of my heart
translated by Daniel Ladinsky ©1999 The Gift
Where is the door to God?
In the sound of a barking dog,
In the ring of a hammer,
In a drop of rain,
In the face of
Your eye is so wise
It keeps turning, turning
Needing to touch
It keeps turning,
Needing to find a mirror
That will caress you
I will take care of you,"
To everything that is
May you delight in these sweet nectars of Beauty... art, poetry, visions, gifts and more. My heart smiles with gratitude for the precious support I receive that makes it possible for me to walk the path of artist-dreamer.
I welcome your questions and comments. Warmly, Mara

These 4 paintings were created last year inspired by my spring visit to New Mexico. I call this series "Santa Fe Mary". Blending influences of Hispanic, Native American and Tibetan art forms... each is a unique icon jewel.
