The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

So Vast is the Nature of Spirit....

"So vast is the nature of Spirit that the energies which flow into it can never fill it, nor those which flow from it exhaust it." ~ Sue Patton Thoele.

This is a photo I took back in 1992 in North Thailand...The peaceful sculpture with the gold leaf vessel really resonated with me then, as much as it still does today.  The luscious tree with the vines growing up and down from the deep belly of the earth to the embracing skies...also fed my senses and my soul even back then...Trees have always signified  such vastness, connection and life...And the vessel we call soul or spirit also reminds me that no matter what comes with each day there is plenty of energy to find within...Energies that will sustain us, bring us joy, love, care, compassion and renewal.  Here is to comfort and renewal to all those that crave is within us all...Our vessels are vast and infinite.

Very nice piece. Yes, it's a very serene image and I love what you had to say about trees. I just adore and honor them. They have much to share through all seasons. Peace to you.
