Responding to the urge to return to a simpler life through small scale organic farming. Ravenwood Farm & Art studio is a small homestead on the border of Putney & Westminster, Vermont. Our focus is on raising our own organic, non GMO food and selling any extra that we produce to help support the farm. As a retired professional artist I also use the creative process of art journaling and photography to help navigate the ups and downs of living life with a post Lyme chronic illness.
I have had a few extremely challenging health days. It feels like forever since I have been able to be in my actual studio painting on silk and it is so easy to fall into a state of discouragement when I feel so lousy and my energy is so low. My heart is filled with gratitude that I am able to do these digital paintings when I am in these relapses. They feel a bit like prayers, expressions of hope and faith that God will once again deliver me to a state of better health.
At a distance you only see my Light ,
come closer and know that I am You. ~Rumi
We are surrounded by the forms of a formless creator. Enough with these forms! Let us go to the Formless One. ~Rumi
