Life's Journey is a mural of Threads.

The threads of my mural are influenced by my spiritual practices, personal values, the love of friends, and special people that have been my guides. They are strengthened by my husband's love and support. The colors are brilliant with the influence of my enthusiasm for continued exploration for meaning and truth.

My threads will continue to weave their unique patterns as I explore life's roads, paths, alleys, and avenues. My beliefs will provide many hues as I continue search for a personal meaning of my existence. Artistic challenges and accomplishments will add the sparkle!

The colors radiate the pulse of my life. There is a rhythm to the design. I have danced, whirled and twirled, even stumbled, but, I do have style!

I am excited about sharing the developing design with you through this Blog.

Expressions Through Art

I continue to participate in most of the Swaps posted on International Artistic Charm Exchange by Amber D. Currently, I am submitting pendants designed with optometric lenses.

This photo shows eight of the completed lenses. I used a new technique for four of the designs. I placed a transparent image over a selected picture. This technique offers an artist a way to develop a visual withmore depth and expression. An entire story can be told with this layering process.

My favorite lens is named "Eternity." The base photo is a vintage image of mothers and daughters. The cover, transparency, is a silhouette of a runner with a flag with the word eternity.

Another fun lens is named, "Sparkling Visions."

The focal and fun part of this pendant is the cluster of Swarovski Crystal stones. I am a member of Artella. There I offer a selection of unique, one-of-a-kind optical lens pendants. I just sold a necklace today! Do visit the Shoppe.
