"Heaven & Earth Understood"

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.-- Albert Camus

work in progress

Friendship is deep, complex and full of many layers...

me and nancy

I returned home last night from my trip to Reno, Nevada to visit my friend
She and I meet almost 10 years ago at a girl scout camp-out that we attended with our daughters and found out quite quickly that we had much in common...

work in progress

Imagine the delight that two of us had when we discovered that we had a love of art and fashion. are girls were great friends and we spent much time creating art together as we watched our young daughters turn into lovely woman.
(Sarah and Sabra will both be 19 soon ! how fast they grow.)

noelle and me

Here I am with Noelle, Nancy's youngest who has always been such a kind soul and to watch her grow into the lovely young lady that she is becoming has been a great treat from me!
(thank you Noelle for still asking me to french brad you hair! it reminds me so when Sarah was a little one!)

Noelle was my guide as she and I walked along a snow covered path as I got to experience my first snow day, it was a blissful walk as all you could hear was the snow gently falling and the cold air on your face.

work in progress

We must never lose site of the love and light that each and ever-one of us carries within ourselves. we have to believe and see the gifts in everyone and ever-thing around us. being surrounded by nature is such a huge reminder of the dormancy and rebirth in life. I have been blessed to have so many in my life that have always seen the light in me even when I myself could not.

winter wonderland

Nancy was such a light for me many years ago, and I have to thank her for encouraging me to journey onto the path of a mixed media artist... it took a lot of courage for me to grow into the artist that I am today but with her faith in my creativity I somehow found my way.


My trip to Reno was a chance for me to play in Nancy's Studio

work in progress

we wanted to create art together like we used to many years ago when she lived right down the road from me.

peek of new work

when I am in my home studio: with in arms reach are all the supplies that comfort me, its easy for me to be creative in my own surroundings ~

found poetry

However it was majestic being surround by supplies that were not my own and to dive into colors and textures that were collected by Nancy's keen touch and eyes. It was almost like a step into my past as I made due with things that I would not have used if I were in my own surroundings.
Thank You Nancy for a great time in Reno and for always being there for me!

-- John Hay (1871)

peek of new work

"Heaven & Earth Understood"
is a altered book journal project that is just in its infancy and the little snippets that I have shared with you here will soon unfold once I connect all the pieces and complete it.

work in progress

But for now I invite you to take a few supplies away from your normal creative comforts, perhaps try a new product or work with color that is a few steps from your norm and see what you can come up with!

Happy Creating!
