Too free to be caged by any mind..

7 Priceless Prescriptions For Health and Anti-Aging

I got a phone call from Victor Forbes of Fine Art Magazine graciously asking me to do the illustrations of a book by Dr. Bill Akpinar.  Victor and I have worked on projects together in the past and I of course was thrilled to take on the challenge.

What I didn’t know was that this book would have such a healing and powerful influence on me.

I had a deadline of 2 1/2 weeks to do 8 paintings plus a cover.  I read the book and started a 2 week cleanse and created these illustrations during this time.  I made my deadline.  I felt fantastic.

Jaesen Kanter and I collaborated on the cover and on the illustration “Breathe like a monk”.  They flew us to NY for the book signing and, as usual, MORE MAGIC!

Dr. Bill, Trish, Victor, Jamie, Rose…we love you and thank you for this amazing opportunity.
