IF: Awakening Strength, Compassion, and Wisdom

for Theme Thursday, One Powerful Hour and Illustration Friday

May all beings have happiness, and the causes of happiness,
May all be free from sorrow, and the causes of sorrow,
May all never be separated from the sacred happiness which is sorrowless,
And may all live in equanimity, without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

Buddhist prayer

Lovely work!!
This one screams "postcard! Turn it into a postcard!" for me - imagine getting a print of this in the mailbox, that would make for a super day!

Oh my gosh..I just happened upon your blog from Illustration Friday and I am in Love with your work! I have a few questions about your work with Journal pages. I am a creative person but these pages just stump me. I am not sure how to contact you though...would you be willing to answer my questions?

Thanks for inspiring me!

I searched for a way to contact you but could find no e-mail, so I hope you'll check back here. Are you kidding? OF COURSE I'll answer your questions. I love to talk about art (or most anything at all, if truth be told). You can e-mail me at: katherinemccullen@yahoo.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Such beautiful and inspiring words - and a vibrant, happy image!

as always...such a wonderfully bright and happy piece. I love the fact that it is made out of another piece of artwork.

Thanks for taking the challenge!

This is just beautiful. I am loving the color and pattern combinations. It's like a box of crayola's exploded from happiness!

I love this piece so much!

I am working on my winter issue of my Healing Nest newsletter and I was wondering if you would be open to submitting this piece for my newsletter. My newsletter this season is all about reflection and listening to the messages of our minds and bodies and waking up! This piece would fit so perfectly. Would you be open to this? If you wanted, you could also write a few sentences about this piece (or include the Buddhist prayer). I would also include a link to your blog, of course, in addition to any other bits of info. you want me to include so people can find you and our inspiring blog!

Thanks for considering this.

All the best,
