"Welcome Peace"

The page below did not want to go any further.  I like to look at it...feel it.  I just love the color and find it very, soothing.

The next two pages were made to illustrate two verses of a poem that I wrote, a few years ago.  I'm creating a spread for each verse and there are four verses.  I have two finished, so far.

   More to come, soon. If you would like to see the whole poem, click HERE.


I found an old journal with some thoughts on creating Joy.  I took an excerpt from it to create the following spread.


In the next spread, I began with the 4" x 6" painting.  It was laying around, unfinished, in the Lab.  As I held it to the white page, it asked for a yellow background, so I complied.  The next day, it asked to be framed by the green tree...and I couldn't resist it's urging.  Then, I saw the seed and the vine.  After that, the words were obvious.

Sometimes, if my journal is wet and if I still need to splash paint around, I grab a sheet of canvas paper and fold it in half.  These will be bound together, someday, but for now they serve, as a fresh place to play, while the Healing Art Journal dries.


Oh, yeah...and along the line, somewhere, I added gold highlights to the cover.



"I Am Love on a Journey" is based on the idea that what we put out is what we get back.  I am filling it with what I intend to feel.  I am, carefully and consciously, replacing negative thoughts with positive ones and my life is changing, as my intentions are clarified.
