soul and purpose

"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

Take sustenance but not more than you need for within our hands lies the future.

 Preview of two page spread excerpted from one of my books in progress.
"Take nourishment from the fruits of the Earth but do not take more than you need, for greed is a dangerous thing.  Rather, value the gifts from Earth's bounty and honor her with a nurturing hand; work her soils with tenderness and keep her air and water pure so that we may continue to reap these vast and perfect rewards.  We must be responsible stewards of all God's creatures, and remember that this delicate balance within which we exist, once disrupted, can immensely impact the fragility of all life.  So take sustenance...but not more than you need...for within our hands lies the future."

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
