Self-Portrait as an old man: The History: This is my story and I’m sticking to it… for now. In the continued spirit of self-torture, I made another self-portrait. I’m struggling to remember if I honestly intended to make this a self-portrait, instead of a study for some sculptures I was planning in Giacometti style. I … Continue reading Self-Portrait As An Old Man: A Creative Process – Through 500 Works of Art: #4
Self-Portrait as a young man: The History: This is my story and I’m sticking to it… for now.

Flying & Crawling: The History: This is my story and I’m sticking to it… for now. I was researching for a bigger drawing that would contain many fantastic creatures.

i’m an innocent traveling through a guilt ridden world selfishly ignoring my inner feelings and indulgently abusing those of others by M. Perron (Originally written November 22, 1989) Notes: Really, Mario? Thank God my existential crisis period took over from my self-indulgence and over-seriousness. Well, at least I think it has... wink, wink.
Spanish Beauty: The History: This is my story and I’m sticking to it… for now.

Part 1 - Some Drawings I’ve been doodling and drawing since I was about 3 years old and I really wish I had kept some of the first drawing I made, if only to see if they are what I remember them to be. You see, I image that I did some amazing stuff when … Continue reading A Creative Process – Through 500 Works of Art: Part 1 – Some Drawings
You’ve all heard the expression “Fake it until you make it!” Now, tell me the truth, how many of you have gotten frustrated or anxious with this statement? If I’m being honest, there are many times where I simply wanted to say… well a bunch of bad words to the person who delivered this message. … Continue reading The Benefits of Daydreaming
As is my practice from time to time, I asked the Angels & the universe a question this morning. “How will I increase my income today?” Maybe not such a deep question, but the explanation for it’s simplicity would be another article in itself.
I often use my Doreen Virtue Oracle Cards and seldom do they disappoint me. Today’s answer blew my mind…
I drew the COUNSELlOR card.: Archangel Azreal: “You are a natural counsellor, and many people benefit from your guidance and reassurance.”
“Your life purpose involves counselling people in ways that uplift, motivate, comfort, heal, and inspire. You’re a true spiritual counsellor, and people find you to be a trustworthy confidante. Expand your counselling work to the next level, because you’re about to help greater numbers of people. ”
Amazing how some messages hit deeper than others. I am about to launch my daily feature on the creative process with the intention of helping creatives grow. I believe everyone can be creative and I intend to help anyone who cares to develop their creative passions.
The next daily is dedicated to those who are infinitely curious like me… a year of intentional learning… more will come on that as soon as I feel closer to my launch date…
Finally, I was invited to join a consulting group and it is turning into an international braintrust. What an awesome and exciting project for me to be part of. Stay tuned for more information on Management Group International & MGI Strategies. I believe we will change the world.
I’m so excited by the results of today’s prayers and invite you to share your enthusiasms for your projects, you questions, and your feedback.
Isn’t life tremendous?!?
Wishing you all an amazing weekend!
This ideology is amazing and is the driving and freeing force that drove my growth through exploration in sculpture and painting. Starting March 27th there will be a new daily feature on my Blog called: A Creative Process – Through 500 Works of Art… stay tuned for some fun!
