Unwrapping Soul Link.

It is a wonderful day.
I am really enjoying this 'creating my day' every day with positive intent.
How will you tell your story of events this year, how will you record the events?
Journaling is a great place to start, even computer sticky notes work,
just be sure to file them in a journaling folder for easy access. :-)

Soul Link book arrived today

The first bound copy of my book 'Soul Link' arrived today!  I will wait until Christmas Day
to open the package.  Dorrance Publishing Co., really worked fast to get the book to me in time for the holiday season.  Isn't that cool.

Updates after the holiday with book pictures.  Now Dorrance will start sending out book reviews and other promotional work.  Exciting times.

Origami for the holiday activities.
This Blizzard book is
very handy.  To meet the video guidelines for this blog I had to reduce
the footage down to the bare minimum.  But there are many web sites that have
Blizzard Books.  It is all in the fun.
It is cold outside. Luckily I have a heater next to my artboard.
This is my recent acrylic painting.

I also recommend a terrific 1990 movie titled 'An Angel At My Table' the story of writer Janet Frame.  It is excellent. and I am thinking the angel is her agent, besides a guardian angel. :-)  This is an excellent movie for authors.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.
My favorite meal begins with Quron - meat-free nutrition.  Amazingly yummy!
Check out the Vegetarian sections at your grocery store.

I have also been busy painting in the color of Christmas.
See a couple of my artworks here. Perhaps I have found a new subject for my portfolio!

I am having a whale of a time with art creations.
This canvas is 8" x 40" and I am anxiously wondering how
I should complete it.  Awesome, don't you think?

The animation is fun.  In this short video clip,
I start with the artwork at the beginning of progress and
then it becomes more filled in with colors.

It is like seeing what goes on in the artists' mind while
painting.  It is never just a flat surface but the art comes to life.

The Grey Whale is the color of gray and can grow to be as large as ten elephants!
They are precious beings.

The photo here is of the whale completed with a metal frame from my favorite place to shop 'American Frame':

Happy Holiday. It is colorful in November and now nearly December!
'Soul Link' - a great easy read book 🙋
will start getting its press release kit organized.

In the meanwhile, I have been painting.
Life moves on and soon we will be putting up the holiday
twinkle lights.

Books are always the best gifts.

This art video is reduced and did not get the music in it.
The other one was oversized
for this blog.  It is all good, enjoy.

The artworks completed in the photos below:  The critter is a Humboldt Marten.

More progress on book Soul Link

So happy to share
that we finished the page layout on my book 'Soul Link'. Now we are
ready to get two copies of the book to Library of Congress for copyright and then
create a press release kit.

Things are moving along like magic.
My book is very small & short.
6 x 9 paperback.  It will be available as an e-book for easy purchase as
well as the paperback.

Dorrance Publishing Co. has been doing a terrific job, I am very thankful for their time.

Above is a short video clip of my latest canvas 'Blue Basin'  All of these large landscapes
will be part of my art show Feb. 2020.  Watch for details on that.

Soul Link book cover came in today. I love it.

Page layout will be
the next step waiting for my approval.
It is all so much excitement. Stay tuned for more updates.🙋

A rain day gave me time to finish up another painting.

These large canvas paintings will be a featured artist showing in 2020.  It is such a pleasure to paint
on cold rainy days.  Watch for updates on all of that later in the year.

'Positive Thought' art and audio by June

My understanding
is that in at least three more weeks I will have been able to make a final decision page layout of the story and the poetry, besides the cover design of my story 'Soul Link'.  Gosh, things are really moving along. In the meantime, I continue to create many more artworks and having super fun with
short video clips.  You may notice that I am now adding my voice to the slide shows. It is all great fun.

Art up at Leading Floral 11-1-19.

Sharing a 36 x 24 canvas art piece

This is the painted Hills near Mitchell, OR in the John Day River Territory area.
My favorite place.  Just sharing some of my artwork for the week of culture.
(Oregon Culture)  I have plenty of time to paint while I am waiting for my book publishing
to get the page layout edits sent to me.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Have a great week,

World of Wonder landscape on canvas

I have been
really enjoying my vacation time.  This video clipping shows how I created an
acrylic landscape on canvas.  The art piece is titled 'World of Wonder'.   Central
Oregon is my favorite place for inspiration.

What is your favorite place to breath and imagine?

Keeping ideas moving by working on another storyboard project.

artworks in this video clipping are part of another story project.  Just staying busy and enjoying life.
The 2014 movie "Interstellar" gives the best impression of a Tesseract in my opinion.  I am a fan of Mathew McConaughey who stars in the movie Interstellar, even so, it is a really well-done movie.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Making progress once again. Page layout is the next step. :-)

Saturday, August 24, 2019

Just keeping extra busy - creating art - I expect to hear from Dorrance next month on any editing
that needs to be done on my book "Soul Link".  It is a slow process. However, the final product will be cherished.

The book publishing process is moving along.
I am so excited that Soul Link will soon be in my hands and
ready to be shared with the public.

I happen to be looking at an interview with Peter Fenwick and found
it fascinating and very complete.  You can watch this video on youtube
at this link.  It is the near-death experience etc...a topic we should all learn
about before it is our time to have that experience.  Peter Fenwick is very
uplifting in his interview.

Friday, June 14, 2019

Yes, my story is about life & death, a subject that comes along now and then.  One of my favorite people via the internet is Stephen Jenkinson 'Orphan Wisdom', check out his link here.

You may have to listen to him a few times to get it downloaded into your mind.  Very interesting, the skill of palliative care.  I work in Memory Care, so I understand his point of few.

My book is at Dorrance Publishing!
Here is the title change and subtitle change.
I am so excited. :-) 📖

This is a book cover image example, but it may change.  I love the new title & look.

Chatting again on movies.  Westworld Season 2, finally watched it and was impressed.
The levels of thought and mental trails to follow with the hosts' memories of their other lives which they had lived in the theme park.  Is it not similar to past lives!

Einstein said 'according to stories' that Time doesn't exist.  It is all relative. The
future you and you now - both exist at the same time.  I had tried to show that
in a collage art piece that I had created years ago.  I did find that image
in my computer video artworks collections.  Maybe you can see the dual Einstein in the art.

It is also quite like the future world as imagined by Ray Kurzweil in the next 80 years.
Click on the link below to see Westworld image. Yes it is an older flick, but worth the
watching, watching it with an active mind on the writer's storyline.

There are a lot of ways to tell a story,
Bob Dylan tops the lists of awesomeness.
I'm talking about "I'm Not There", which covers
the many lives of Bob Dylan in a movie with many actors.

easy access link below:'m+not+there&qid=1556634285&s=gateway&sr=8-2&linkCode=ll1&tag=site60-20&linkId=fd2252a4105f68eba2adcc6eb878398a

How will you tell your story?
Soul Wink will get published with Dorrance, which means it
will take longer than planned as I have to raise the funds. Stay posted
for updates.

I have
noticed that Feb. 17, 2019, has popped up,
where Feb 17, 2018, was the actual life-changing event in my life,
my mind seems focused on this upcoming Feb., 17th.

I am looking forward to any sign from the universal mind as to 'what's up man'.
It most likely has to do with the unity of all things in the flow of life.

When I am not busy with writing I find mediation in art.  This book 'Soul Wink'
does have a series of art scenes which will be displayed one day at an art show.

Stay posted for updates.

Profound peace to you all.

P.S.  I wanted to share the paint product that I use for all of my artworks!
I cannot possibly end without telling you about Golden Heavy Body Paint. Why because I use it, year after year. And I will tell you why: (see product link below)
Back in 2014, Mitchell, Oregon hired me to restore wood
art panels created by the school youth. The panels had faded over the years from the direct sunlight.
The panels today, even in the recent April flood, prove the high the quality value you get in Heavy Body Golden paint products.
I use this paint for everything both outdoors and indoors.
I have even painted metal propane tanks with this great paint!
(You can see that at the Painted Hills Vacation Rentals in Mitchell.)

I am busy looking at self-publishing options with formatting and editing as part of the printing package.  Writing a book is one thing but getting the final product out is a new financial ball game.

This story 'Soul Wink' is about Reviewing Life.  Today I came across a wonderful lady on-line who talks about having seen her life review, perhaps you have heard of her 'Cherie Aimee'.  I found it very interesting and quite like the 1991 movie 'Defending Your Life'.

 a top seller like Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco will be fantastic. Watch for updates.

Life is about the journey. Like the illustration below for writers. The eternal cycle - continuum. Emotional discomforts, irritations and battles can be won, and that is the fun of it all (at least when you make it to the finish line).

Paul Coelho was
also influential in my life.

Alchemist is an incredible book read as important as learning from Joseph Campbell.

Have you seen the movie  'Defending Your Life' starring Meryl Streep & Shirley McClain?  I thought it was super fun.  This movie talks about Life Reviews.  Check it out by this access below.
True to be a favorite of yours.
