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.

The second fabric postcard is a fabric machine embroidery with a transparency of a praying angel. I also included an American eagle metal piece.

  1. Jan, how absolutely beautiful and extraordinary these fabric postcards are, which you made so lovingly, I am sure. I am positive that the soldiers who receive your postcards will find much pleasure and gratitude from your gift. Always, Barbara
