Spirit Masks Illustrations


In the years when I was an active ceramic Mask Maker, I made and sold over 500 original masks. Every now and then I would make a color pencil illustration of a favorite mask. This little book contains those illustrations.To see my book of photos of some of the ceramic masks, click here: Spirit Masks

If you hear a voice within you

 say you cannot paint, 

then by all means paint 

and that voice will be silenced. 

 Vincent Van Gogh.

Whatever you can do,

 or dream you can, 

begin it. 

Boldness has genius, power 

and magic in it. 

  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I will not follow where the path may lead, 

but I will go where there is no path, 

and I will leave a trail. 

 Muriel Strode.

Keep love in your heart. 

A life without it is like a sunless garden 

when the flowers are dead. 

 Oscar Wilde

If you want happiness for an hour – take a nap.

 If you want happiness for a day – go fishing. 

If you want happiness for a year – inherit a fortune. 

If you want happiness for a lifetime – help someone else.

 Chinese Proverb.

 Twenty years from now

 you will be more disappointed 

by the things that you didn’t do 

than by the ones you did do, 

so throw off the bowlines, 

sail away from the safe harbor, 

catch the trade winds in your sails. 

Explore, Dream, Discover.  

 Mark Twain
