This is a blessing book I created.
The purpose of this book is especially to bless the child, as a protection, an imparting, a purposeful written legacy or joyful comments.
And shared pearls of wisdom for the future mom and dad.
It is perfect for new baby's and new mom's as a gift for a shower or at the hospital were each family member and friend can write something.
It then becomes a beautiful heirloom and keepsake.
The cover will be different with each book and is hand painted directly on the cover.
The name of the child can be added to the cover.
The inside page gives a suggested description on how to use this book.
Please e-mail me at
For orders and descriptions

This is my first book cover.
The original art work is acrylics on smooth Bristol paper.
The thoughts behind the design are :
The walls we have are self built sometimes there's a door sometimes not. But the key is always in our possession.
In this picture you will notice that the walls are hand painted so is the prison door and  the lock is on the inside.
Beyond the door is real and beautiful and awaits you.
It is up to you to reach out, what ever the circumstances might be. Reach out you have nothing to loose and so much to gain.
Check this book out and tell me how it helped you.

 by the new parents.
Tiffany and I unveiled 
our collaboration

How Vermont and circumstances gets my creative juices going too

Events in your life give you an added stretch, like at first not knowing what you are going to do for a much prayed for child.
It's so exiting sometime to find out what it's going to look like ! and a bit scary. ( I'm talking about the art work of course)
       THE 4th of July                
MY Vacation in VERMont !

It is always an adventure and a delight to my soul. My eyes get bigger here because there is so much more of a feast for them.
I can't stop clicking, on a camera that is. 
I tell others it's for future paintings but most of the time my delight is just to see the pictures again.
