Climb Every Mountain

Life has its challenges, doesn’t it? I think I’ve been fortunate because I believe I learn and grow from these challenges as they are presented.
For me, this piece symbolizes the challenges that life presents and with all the mountain shapes in this one, I just felt it echoed the challenge to “Climb Every Mountain“. Maybe a bit of the Sound of Music is resonating with me too. Yet, I think that mountains, in all their rugged beauty, beckon us and present challenges for those adventurous to dare. If we are honest with ourselves, isn’t that part of what life is all about? The challenges and how we respond to them? Can you tell I think there is A LOT of symbolism in this piece?
The stone is another beautiful Sonoran Sunrise I acquired from Gary B Wilson. It is set in sterling silver that I’ve oxidized to create additional depth.
I wish I could report that I have achieved my February goal of completing 25 pieces in my Mountainesque Series, however, I do have 10 completed pieces. You see, February had a few challenges in it for me and sometimes ya just gotta roll with it.
To my way of thinking, I have 10 pieces done and more in my sketch book. I will continue to debut them here. Stay tuned, I think there are some real beauties in this series.
Hope you enjoyed reading about the symbolism of this piece. Do any of you have any work that symbolizes something so strongly for you? I know some of you definitely have those pieces in your body of work. I’d love to know your thoughts.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
