I woke up with the idea to paint POTUS. First time I've done such a painting.
It is a fun idea and the end result will be a little slideshow to show the progress
as I get a final art piece on board.
Here is a photo of me with the painting as an idea of National Park preservation.
For this National Park, I picked Crater Lake, OR

This art piece is the completion of Blue Star angels, now it is called
"Amplituhedron the Cosmic Jewel'. You will find it on my Pixel shop weblink:
This is acrylic on artboard - the sacred geometry of the cosmos.
With inner peace and finding joy in each day, you can find peace during this 2020 election chaos.
Life is to be explored with joy.
Bring some bliss into the day. Increasing your
intentions of positive thoughts...sometimes that means turning
off the TV news and going for a walk.

|People of Earth and Ankh|
We are all Spirit. We are all One.
Ankh is the symbol of life & death, rebirth, unity. It is us.
Love All - Serve All, the words of Sathya Sai Baba, my hero. I added
the words on my little business card years ago. That was when I first was
inspired to start painting my spirit guide ankh. You can find my 'sometimes glowing' ankh spirit guide in many of my art pieces.
Blessings to everyone.

My book 'Soul Link: Love Across Lifetimes' is a perfect example of how you can
create a 'creative non-fiction' family legacy. A story that weaves life experiences together so
that it can be passed on from generation to generation.
If writing is difficult for you, consider joining a writing class at a local library or even on-line.
I am active at writing short memory stories in a Heroes Journey format and keeping at 800 words, or a 7-minute read.
With the COVID-19 stay indoors policy we may have heard many memories over the past month.
Write them down or make notes in your journal for future wiring ideas.
Stay healthy and get some sunlight.

Pixels carries my artwork and there you can see my latest acrylic on canvas board.
Phoenix Bird of Economic Resurgence. It is a challenge to paint A.I. or quantum computing in regards to the stock exchange. It is the way of the times! No more second-guessing when A.I. will look at all the variables and find the most likely company to achieve Bullish gains. We all know now that autonomous driving cars and anything to do with computers is Bullish in the markets beginning now and through the next five years. After that the price will be very high.
So this painting represents a personal and global economic resurgence.

you will also find my other Oroborus 'The Dragon Within' art piece. which is below.
Staying indoors and staying well. Plenty of time to catch up on ideas that I've been
wanting to paint.

Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai: 2019 in review.
My heroes. SathyaSai.org - even offering free education. That is something my sweet Scott wanted for the world, 'free education'.'Educare'.

Also relevant to the times 'Soul Link: Love Across Lifetimes' began as journaling and writing memories
If you have never written a eulogy you might give it a practice try.
I assure you it is difficult, a life review is quite similar.
Writing down recollection of good times, happenings or things one is grateful for and having an appreciation for all the mysteries that one encounters. Look back in note-taking those small but important events that changed you're trajectory and got you on a path to reach joy and accomplishments no matter the size.
Your story is one that you own, it is the authentic self. Reading such stories makes life delicious and desirable. Life Stories, is that not why we spend so much time reading blogs, going to movies, etc.
This week I have been busy illustrating my Anthology Of Short Stories. It will
take some time still but I am so excited to be back working on that book.

I had a chance to update my short story "Spirit of Paavo" and again found Blurb convenient for this type of oral history.
It is a great story and a worthwhile read. The story starts back in 1896 and moves forward.
I hope everyone is staying healthy.
An interesting article for 'Today's Finland' by Anu Partanen (author of the book "The Nordic Theory of Everything" Check out this article, very informative reading.

create most of this video on my Windows 10 Azure and finished with Adobe Spark on a different laptop. It is my hope that I will be able to imagine a different video layout for the book Soul Link: love Across Lifetimes. The goal is to create a 30 second video that will bring out more of the mystical side of the story, but this is what I have so far. Hope you find it intriguing or at least amusing.

Dorrance Bookstore has my book Soul Link as an e-book now. Isn't that convenient and works with all devices for reading. I hope by April the Soul Link book web page and blog will be up.
This month of March I have some of my paintings at Creative Framing in Corvallis. It is such a nice shop! I've attached some photos and it is easy to find off 9th st. and near Walnut St
They have a door greeting dog that is so sweet. It is with the Corvallis Art Guild that I hang my art up around town.
Below is Marys Peak in Philomath Oregon. I took this photo today by getting into the center! It was a quick snap photo. This photo is going to be a painting project for me after I finish those horses.
Mary's Peak as of today still has snow up on the top. Isn't that fun. So close to the beach and still getting to see snow.

The books are shipping out faster now. Sorry for any delays
earlier this month.
This is a fast read book that reminds us how everyone's story matters,
every life matters, we matter.

I am excited about Pixels. My art looks really good. I especially like how the
heavy body paint comes through on the images.
Today I started working out my ideas for two large horse canvases.
They are based on my video which I had taken during a rodeo event.
The stamped at the end of the night.
You can see here is the canvas sketch in progress and the stampede video.
It will take me a couple of weeks to create the paintings. When they
are done you will find them on Pixels.com.
Won't it be nice to have something with those horses on it!

My goal is to build up ideas on how to create an interesting book video.
This is still work in progress but what fun it has been!
"Soul Link - Love Across Lifetimes. This story is of a software engineer graduate of OSU who chooses to live a life of spirt and as aware consciousness. Perhaps his choices had been influenced by the 1960 era or as it may seem that he was already enlightenment that was on a soul journey. The story is interspersed with Life- Reviews, poetry, and philosophy."

Fine Art America makes it easy and affordable for folks to collect art and decorate with the season,
locale or favorite subjects. If you are a fan of the high desert perhaps you will find my art interesting and affordable. What I like the best of Fine Art America is that you can have prints, pillows, fleece throws and so much more. A great place to shop.
Below is a little video of my work on the Columbia Gorge painting.
I do not have the original artworks for sale at the Fine Art America website as they are being shown and sold here in Corvallis at the Art In The Valley gallery.
Friday, January 10, 2020
artworks set to be shown at the Art in the Valley Gallery next month.
My theme 'Landscapes of Southwestern Oregon' + a couple others.
At this time my paintings are in the process of drying while I continue to create a few more.
You can get an idea of my work in the photos attached. My thought here is to have
these artworks available for purchase as prints in Feb. on 'Fine Art America's website'.
Please watch for updates on that.
With all the excitement of my book 'Soul Link - Love Across Lifetimes'
making its debut I find satisfaction, clarity, and calmness for positive
outcomes with all of these creations.
"This story is of a software engineer graduate of OSU who chooses to live a life of spirt and as aware consciousness. Perhaps his choices had been influenced by the 1960 era or as it may seem that he was already enlightenment that was on a soul journey.

It is through these imaginings and creations that I find so much joy.
And that joy again experienced by sharing them with the all of you.
