About the Book

This collection of inspirational poetry is appropriately entitled, “The Artistry of Life,” after the first poem I penned as an introspective writer.  Our lives are the canvas; our thoughts, words, and deeds are the palette.  Our portrait is the life we live.

All forms of art are intricate and life is the most intricate creation of all.  Our creations will be different, yet the essence of our lives remains the same.  Through loving and caring and crying and dreaming and hoping and praying and thanking and forgiving – of some of these, of all of these, of these and more, our creations are emerging.  As our creations form and take different twists and turns, the seasons are changing, too.  Perhaps some thought within these pages will quietly inspire a brushstroke that adds a special touch to the seasons of our lives.
