Inner Strength…

Beautiful Art and well said!

Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings


You hear it said often that success “looks” a lot like hard work.  I disagree.  The most successful people I know make it look easy.  It doesn’t look like work at all.  It would be more accurate to say that  success “feels” like hard work.  To make it as an artist you have to have a lot of “inner strength”.  Yes, you will be praised but you will also be severely criticized.  You will make sales, but you will also spend countless hours emailing/talking on the phone with people who never buy.  You will create amazing pieces but sometimes sit back in disbelief each day as the days turn into months or years without that work selling.  You will make artistic friends and creative enemies.  You will have days when you are so motivated to create that you feel as if your soul and brain will burst out of you…

Longs Peak Autumn Aspen Landscape View - James Bo Insogna

Scenic landscape a majestic view of Longs Peak 14,256 feet with golden autumn aspen trees and blue sky above.

In the summer months, when conditions will allow, thousands of people come to climb Longs’ Peak summit via the Keyhole Route. The Keyhole Route  is a climb that crosses incredible sheer vertical rock faces, often with falling rocks, requiring scrambling, where an unroped fall would likely be fatal.  This route has narrow ledges, loose rock, and very steep cliffs. On top of that add the weather and we are talking a fun time to remember.

10 Signs You Are on the Right Path

Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings


Do you ever wonder if you are on the “right path” in life.  Is something missing?  Look at the list below and see if you can answer “often” to ALL of them.

1.  I do things I love.

2.  I get excited every morning when I get out of bed.

3.  I feel accomplished when I fall asleep.

4.  I have fun.

5. Things just seem to work out well for me.

6. I feel on top of my game.

7. I get so involved in projects that I lose track of time.

8. I have great ideas.

9. I use my imagination.

10. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude.

I have “often” felt all of the above on a daily basis, but haven’t lately and I find it is time to reevaluate what I am doing with my career, family and health.  What I like to do when I get…

Marking Time Into Space Abstract Spiritual Artwork Omaste Witkowski owFotoGrafik.comMarking Time Into Space

Marking a path through my destiny and dimension
I understand that traveling is essence manifest
As a way to experience life

Time offers a pause in the stream of consciousness
Life expresses all and nothing at all
As it is able to be understood

Into another reality and on to another lesson
Understand what you can now
Live even more carefully

Space contains us and offers a playground of chance
More is what it is and less is often greater
Destiny found as questions or answer

Point of Power

beautiful work!

Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings


The point of power is always in the present moment.  This tenant is something I try to live by.  As a self representing artist there really is no other way to live….for my sanity.  I cannot focus on sales in the past or sales in the future.  I can only look at where I am right now…can I afford my mortgage?  Yes  Can I afford to eat? Yes  Can I create new work with this mind and body?  Yes  It is much more satisfying to look at all of the “yes” answers than to ruminate on the “nos”.  Art is a passion and it cannot be reduced to a marketing and sales pitch.  A true artist has an irresistible urge to create.  Einstein knew this and so do I.  Each day is filled with endless possibilities to which my soul always says yes!  Sometimes I paint a beautiful painting…

A Sacred Place


Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings


I don’t just sell art.  I form relationships with my collectors.  I bring people together, make a house a home or an office a welcoming place.  I create and inspire.

A few years ago one of my collectors contacted me with a very special request.  She said it took her many months to get up the nerve to ask because she thought I would say no.  Her Mom had passed away and she wanted to do something special with her ashes.  She wanted to know if I would be willing to incorporate some of her mother into one of my pieces.  A commission based on “Fire Over Copper Lake”.  I did not hesitate and said yes.

I was soon touched to learn that we shared a Native American ancestry.  Her Mom was a healer in this life and touched many souls.  In my lifetime I have had a spiritual…
