Spirit House

One of the women I art with (Claire) has the following quotation on her blog: "There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, an emotional, a mental, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person." (Rumer Godden, 1907 - 1998) This quotation prompted the October "Spirit House" challenge.

Here are two of the facets of the Spirit House I made for Jill. Spirit is on the upper left and body on the right. (Remember, you can click on any image to enlarge it.)

Hi Susan!
That quote is one I have used in a writing group I facilitate and it provides SO much room for introspection...
Great idea to turn it into a mixed media challenge! Love it! Lee
