About Diversity


This is a line weave drawing done in colored ink. It was done in a small 3.5 x 5 inch sketchbook. I have several of them, because they were easy to carry around, and use, when I was caring for my Mother in her final years. But, I like to play with these sketches digitally. So, I tried it in black and white.


Of course, I had to find out what would happen if I put it through the kaleidoscope app. Was really surprised at some of the results.

And again in black and white, which makes for a good template to color.

Just had to keep going and find out where it might all take me.


And then to this.

And this.


And back to black and white.


And then inverted.


All of these images, each one diverse, able to stand alone. Each one a different, but unique expression. Able to tell a different story, allowing for a different perspective, yet all connected one to another. All coming from the same source, as though sharing the same DNA. That is the strength to be found in diversity. It allows us to grow, to expand our own horizons, as well as that of others.

      It truly is, Sherry. I used to think that this was just another aspect of my creative energy, a sort of extension of the words. But, now see that it is a balancing aspect. A place to recede to while the words find the path for all of us to follow. Hope that makes sense. It’s a new way of seeing, so it might need some space to grow, lol.
