  • Laurie M. posted a new Artwork PURITY
    Grandma's Eleanore’s purple embroidery floss on dark blue linen, 41" 1/2' x 24", 5_10_2018-6_1_2018, 11:43 a.m. Laurie M. had a profoundly powerful conversation with someone she cares deeply for on May, 10th, 2018.

Laurie M. believes fundamentally that all beings are pure and full of light. Some are aware of their light and others are not.
