shine through.....


It brings me much joy when I 
sketch and paint one of my favorite flowers:
the Lotus..



and here's another piece with
mixed media...




"Reality, enlightenment or the divine must shine
through every moment or it is not genuine"
Jack Kornfield



Have a wonderful weekend and a happy PPF everyone!!

This is impressive. I always enjoy seeing what you have drawn, but these are especially gorgeous.

Of course, even if you hadn't posted something today, I still would have visited. I just had to thank you beyond belief for the incredible package you sent. Not sure, but I think it was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but I am just now receiving it. I am in love with the wonderful and lovely little journal that will hold my thoughts, as well as an example of your awesome collage work on the cover. Even the envelope is a jewel with the excellent stamps from your country. Thank you so very, very much dear friend. It may have been a long time coming, but I am grateful none-the-less.
