The Big Picture
Made of 100% recycled polyester with nylon string and printed with dye sublimation dyes which are fade resistant and durable in the weather. Each flag has a different prayer on it, coupled with a mountain peak from central Oregon. Each individual flag measures approximately 7"x7'. The flags stretch approximately 37" with additional string on each side. The total string length is roughly 90" or 7.5'. (they can vary by a few inches) For more about the artwork: cadajohnson
The Oregon Cascade mountains became my muse in August of 2021. I fell in love with these peaks in ways I could never have imagined before starting the project. These specific 5 mountain peaks are located outside of Bend Oregon and their position on the flags represents how one could see them lined up from south to north if you were in Bend looking west.
Here are the prayers:
May we be grounded, serene and
solid in the face of adversity.
May we stand in peaceful communion
with our neighbors.
May we be consistent, reliable
May our beauty and grace inspire
peace and tranquility.
May we have our head in the clouds
and remain firmly rooted
May we inspire others to reach for
their highest goals.
May we be still and let the winds of
change sculpt us into pinnacles
May we rise above current
circumstances to seek a fresh
May we be patient and calm and
allow change to happen
in its own season.
May others feel freedom in our presence.
