Christ in the Desert Abbey is one of my favorite places to be in this world. I love to chant to Psalms with the monks, I love the gift of silence, and I love to paint the Canyon walls.
One the best field trips I take my workshops on is to the sacred place. The guest master has been so kind to give my students a behind the scenes tour of the beautiful art and murals. This trip we had the chance to share our day making art with one of the brothers who is also a painter. The day was a gift, and I am grateful for it.
