Here is a sample of some of the small sketches and paintings I have been playing with over the past couple of months.  Most of them are 6"x6".

Visualizing Success

"Tornado - Erie, KS - November 27, 2005" | Encaustic on Masonite | 8" x 10" | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- I have thought of creating a painting based on this one, but much larger than it's 8"x10" size, and more abstracted.  It could look something like this.

If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open doors to you. I say follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.
