I’ve combined my beautiful nautilus shell art with the timeless wisdom of the Desiderata poem. Enjoy!

Screen print from etched acrylic and ink.
This piece is definitely a one off by me. It started as an etching on a hard acrylic sheet that was then inked and pressed on a screen press. I remember the acrylic being very difficult to scratch into. I still have the block and the original sketch to this piece. A rare find…

An old favorite of mine written by Max Ehrmann in 1927. I have combined the “Desiderata” with my “Peaceful Understanding” which seemed like a perfect combination. The last two lines sum life up for me pretty well, “With all it’s sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” Enjoy!

I’ve got no particular plans.
The neighbor is mowing his lawn in earnest.
I realize that my own yard needs some attention.
It isn’t going to get it today.
I will let the rains give it some love.
The dogs are looking up at me.
Eager eyes and lolling tongues.
Balls have been thrown.
Morning yummies supplied.
A half finished painting.
Sits on my studio table.
Packages are ready to go out.
It isn’t looking good for either of those.
I think I will just go with the flow.
I’ve got no particular plans…

Millions of seconds pass unnoticed
Boring and unremarkable
Life’s time clock
But one second can change everything
And everything is different
Just that one moment
Creates a cascade of transformation
An ordinary miracle.

Her Heart Has Wings
Her heart has wings,
for more than flight.
They give her strength.
They give her sight.
Her heart has wings,
battered by the wind.
They do not break.
They help her bend.
Her heart has wings,
that can’t be tied.
And hopes and dreams.
That won’t be denied.
Her heart has wings,
for so much more.
Her body has limits.
But her spirit will soar…

A Slam Dunk!!
This year you’ve got this……bag the traditionally hyped up gifts or if you must, make them REALLY SPECIAL. It’s time to think outside of the box. Consider a beautiful piece of artwork that will show your love and affection! It will last a LIFETIME! Every time your love looks at the piece hanging on their wall or sitting on their desk they will swell up with a warm feeling. Seriously….you will blow them away!
Wanna pump it up a notch and SCORE major points? Sure you do! Write a love note on the back of the gorgeous print you just bought them. Perhaps a Neruda poem (look it up….they will melt!)?
Planning on proposing or giving jewelry? Why be ordinary? Tape the engagement ring to he back of the romantic print!! Imagine that…..a beautiful ring and a piece of artwork to mark the occasion for the rest of their life! Any jewelry can be taped to the back with a love note hand written by you in permanent marker right on the canvas.
Do they love the way you smell? This idea will knock their socks off! Spray your scent on the back of the print before wrapping and presenting….mmmmm It’s all YOU plus oh so romantic!
Or how about this? She has been jonesing for a really expensive perfume….spray it onto the back of the print. Give her the art first and let her take in her coveted smell. Then present her with the bottle!
Planning on Giving Flowers? Go ahead and take it to the NEXT LEVEL! Add a sweet and thoughtful little canvas print with the bouquet. And do not forget to write the love note on the back!
Other Great Ideas!! Write some lyrics to your “couple” song on the back. Tape a picture of the two of you to the back with a special note, date or concert ticket.
