Fate or Free Will
Free motion machine embroidery and alcohol ink on canvas.
8 X 10 inches
This piece was inspired by a conversation with a friend regarding how much of our lives are controlled by our actions. This is an age-old question. Do we have free will? Can we change the course of our lives? Or are our lives determined by things like our circumstances or maybe even a higher power?
I do not claim to know the answer to a question that has been debated by great philosophers, theologians, scientists and writers. I do know that it is an important question to ask, study, and examine within our own lives.
In my own life, this presents as a balance between looking to astrology and tarot for divine guidance, and maintaining responsibility for my own actions and reactions.
I ask you to look at this piece and examine your own life as well. Is your fate, your personality, your life, written in the stars?
