Lord, inspire me to send my roots deep into life’s enduring values, that I may grow toward my greater destiny. Remind me that the pace is not always swift; that there is more to life than increasing the speed. Let me look upward into the forest and know that it grew great and strong because it grew slow and well. Teach me the art of perseverance as I sink into the depths of life.

Taking Life As It Comes
First Place in the Texas Visual Arts Alliance Exhibit - Dallas, Texas
Chosen Best of the Best 2017 - Washington D.C. Exhibit and catalog feature
Life is about being happy and taking everything as it comes. Love your life and trust your instincts, take chances, lose and find happiness, cherish memories, and learn through experiences. Smile, think positive, always tell the truth and have faith in God. Struggles are part of success. It will be a long time journey, so live consciously in the moment, seek God’s face and enjoy your life’s unfolding as you keep your head above the water.

Drowning in Emotions 24x24
Winner of Multiple Awards from 2017-2020 SOLD
Life is something that many times becomes an overwhelming pool of chaos. I have made quite a few references to “holding your head above water” only because it seems to be a phrase used most often when a person feels as if they are drowning in their own life. To survive is to experience Victory!
As water is essential to our very existence, the symbolism of water is far-reaching and profoundly deep. The wisdom of water is infinite, and you will find that if you are
“ALL IN” with the investment of time meditating and contemplating its vastness,
blessings will be quite enlightening.

Eyes share the beauty of the soul as a window does a lovely spring day. Visions become clear when through life’s window, you can look at your own heart. Those who look outside, dream but those who look inside are awakened to life with eyes wide open

Joy of Light and Life
Slow me down Lord by the quieting of my mind.
Steady my hurried pace with a vision of the eternal reach of time. Bless me, even in the confusion of the day, with the calmness that faith brings. Break the tensions with the soothing music of the singing streams that live
within my memory.
When I am overcome with emotion, grant me peace.

An Innocent View of Life
My whole life is mine to remain innocent of the darkness, but whoever says so will deprive me, for it is infinite. The droplets of water, the shade of the sky are mine.
Still the same … and my life.

Immersed in Life
The laws of life are written into every molecule, step, and breath. We are immersed in the sweet law of unfolding the mystery called life. Turn on the faucet. Wash yourself with the emotion. The soul accepts the mystery within and all around, immersing itself in it…celebrating it.

Keeping Life Secrets
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you for the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. And when, at last, you find someone to whom you feel you can trust to come up from beneath, you stop in shock at the words you utter – they are so meaningless and feeble from being kept submerged inside you for so long.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is..
Just breathe and have faith in your abilities. Be faithful in something as small as staying afloat because it is in the small things that your strength lies.
