by Terri Duncan
Lafayette artist Terri Duncan describes the cover: “Managing the challenges of everyday life is a balancing act. The balls represent the juggling of time, money, family matters, and other responsibilities. The body consists of words that are obscured, much like we often overlook our inner powers and qualities. The word ‘balance’ is stretched across the shoulders, signifying stability. ‘Be fearless,’ ‘live boldly,’ and ‘believe in yourself’ are a few of the phrases used that embody positive affirmations to navigate life. In a hectic world, we should take time to celebrate the amazing things we balance through our strength and grace.” See Terri’s art in the “Indiana Now! 2013″ exhibit through Nov. 30 at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette; the Indianapolis Home Show, Jan. 24–Feb. 2, Booth 6024, Indianapolis State Fairgrounds; the Indiana Art Fair, Feb. 14–15, Indiana State Museum; and on her website.CONTENTS
