When I write, it is important to me that I create meaningful words--words that can provide hope and inspiration for others. That is why I have painted images and written the words for a new book, intended to inspire.
Spirit Visions and Soul Songs is composed of paintings and poems that came to me intuitively. Both the images and the words inspire me, and I hope they will inspire others as well. These are meditation paintings that can bring focus.
My artist friend, James Warwick Jones, shared a quote today from Edgar Degas, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
Those words explain my book. I would add that the written word inspires visions as well. Visions come from the spirit as do the songs of the universe.
My painting, "Pathway to Tomorrow", is the cover art for the book. I believe this piece is perfect to indicate what the reader will discover between the covers.
We need each other. All of us do. We need to inspire one another.
