ART Bundle Collaboration

Joined a group of artists to create and circulate, by mail, an artist bundle. 

The mystery and beauty of these sticks is that they contain the wishes and dreams of everyone who "adds" to them. 
Full of positive thoughts and love.
The inspiration came from Seth Apter, which the group requested permission to add their version of the BUNDLE to create the group swap.

A storm of blue hues piled on top of collected vintage papers, 
which overlapped and got washed up onto shore... with a charcoal illustration.

Beyond this point...

**NEWEST** painting
acrylic on canvas.

In so many words, "Beyond this point" became the title of this painting. 

Also, became the design for my latest business cards... 
"Beyond this point" ... no turning back... 
a great approach to moving forward with a positive attitude.

Where life has taken me...

Apparently God has a different plan for me...
 To think I could decided my own direction or that I have complete control of my destiny...
realize that once I trusted to leave my life in God's hands, by faith, 
my soul would then have direction to lead forward...
and land me right back where I thought I'd never want to be again. 
So many questions are ahead of me... 
But Im here. Hello Puyallup, Washington State.
This time, I will allow God to lead the way. 
Let trust shine. 
Please God, smile down on me. 

Apparently God has a different plan for me. 
Because here I am back in the Pacific Northwest.
