Focus on the good by choice Paul Carter art

Focus on the good by choice.

Having healthy morning rituals, priorities is very important to set the mind and body and the day with positive intentions.

I enjoy watching the sun rise the circadian rhythm of the human biological time peace that we have to choose to set by getting the sunlight in the eyes in the morning.

It’s not about looking at the sun it’s about the sunlight getting in our eyes which regulates many, many healthy systems of our body and the planet with animals and  just about everything on the planet.

Focus on the good by choice, this is a daily hourly training.

To train the mind with positive self talk is life-changing and takes courage and dedication and repetition to train the heart and mind daily.

Each of these sketches and all of the artwork unless it is a commission piece with specific landscape or abstract design, all of the artwork that I create is 95% to 98% inspired spontaneous creativity, and 100% freehand original artwork.

The tree of life to me represents the connection we all have to the planet and to each other.

The importance of planting positive seeds daily and hourly is key for all of us, and future generations.

The design of the lower sketch represents you, me and we have the daily choices to make to either take the time to train the mind or confuse the mind with all of the distractions around us from the inside out.

Taking minimum five minutes to 15 to 30 minutes every morning to meditate and get into your breathing put your hand on your heart to harmonize the heart to the mind.

I will share more about the power of the heart that is scientifically proven is more powerful than the mind.

It also empowering to repeat this process an hour or two before going to sleep to clear the mind for healthy sleep and dreams.

Thank you each for your friendship your positive intentions your business your positive energy and the positive support that helps me to create all of this art for each of you to inspire a healthy and healthier lifestyle from the inside out.

These books are to inspire the positive thoughts and meditations and affirmations for all ages to learn to color to stay present and to train the brain.

San Clemente surfboards custom painted by Paul Carter

The creative process is a journey in itself from learning shape surfboards by hand since 1993 and to freehand paint these boards directly on the foam is a true test from the inside out. 

These painting and all of the paintings I am inspired ti create at not airbrushed or traced.

Custom shaped and painted surfboards by Paul Carter
To create these boards I will sometimes create a sketch to give the customers an idea from there input and come up with the colors and the size of board to fit in a home or office.

Custom painted surfboards & art by Paul Carter
Learning by doing is how have evolved  and I don’t believe in mistake or failures.
 I look at both as what have I learned? and how will I improve and keep learning?
This last SurfBoard was created out of a blank that was going to be thrown into a dumpster.
It was a 710 Blank and this is the design that I could fit within the blank.

The nose rocker is definitely flatter than the average board, the tail rocker has a nice curve to it.

 The nose is 14.75 wide in the center point is 20.75 and the tail is 14.25.

The thickness with the glass is 2 3/4 in the center with tapered rails.

This board paddles great with plenty of speed and is loose for carving some nice turns.

Thank you for following the journey and join me on Instagram/pcboards for the spontaneous creativity.

The mind is the gold mine by Paul Carter

The mind is the gold mine.
Training the mind takes time and commitment and courage.
We are all consumed by age 7 and learned both positive and negative thinking from them on.
It’s sounds simple enough right?  Well having the awareness of the daily choices that start mentally play out physically as we choose our own thoughts and priorities in life.
Filling the imagination without seeking validation is a training from the inside out.
Yes meditation and breathing techniques help to learn how to stay present and give the mind a break long enough to retrain it with good thoughts and imagination.
To be continued.

These are to great friends and great surfers I have been surfing with since the early 89s and this day was a spontaneous photo seeing how we each ended up in a place we surfed many many waves together. 
Here is spontaneous sketch of a new board I will be creating soon into 8’6 to 9’6 range.  
I haven’t decided on the length but I am thinking in the 9ft-9’6 range for a variety of waves.

Custom san Clemente surfboards & art by Paul Carter

Imagination is empowering when one acts on it and creates from it.
Imagine shaping a board fine sanded all nice and smooth and everything blended together.
It took many years for me to build the confidence through learning by doing.   Experience is priceless.

I get a idea of the art in my mind first to show the customer before I even start the board.

When it come time to paint the board I get the colors together and create these one of kind abstract paintings

The next step I will grab a pencil and with the design in mind, I will freehand the sketch/art directly on the foam, yes the foam with no tracing.

This is the first board I donated to the surfers healing fund raiser put on once a year at the Ritz Carlton.

After I pencil in the design I will paint in the colors with a brush fir the final process, before it goes into the glassing stage.

Thank you each for your positive words and intentions.

 Full free to contact me for a custom surf board for your surfing needs and desires or a beautiful board to light up your home or business.

The journey from within by Paulcarterart

 Everyday you, me and we, have to make choices from the inside out, which I believe the real journey begins from within๐Ÿ—


I have learned by doing through my life, and the true test began 5 years 7 months ago๐ŸŒŠ


I had to make many, many, many, life changing choices, to put all I had learned up to that point to the test, the Mental, spiritual, physical, and the soul๐Ÿ”ฅ


I had to face each of these layers of conditioning one hour at a time, one day at a time๐ŸŒ’


The reality of facing the fears, the lies and the negative conditioning takes great courage and strength and patience and perseverance and for me a strong faith into the unknown, from the inside out, by truly staying present one hour one day at a time⏳


Yes I could have forced myself to continue to live from the outside in or make a choice for my life my health and well-being to live from the inside out๐Ÿ—


I am grateful and thankful to say I am not codependent on drugs or alcohol or people, or things to function in my life๐Ÿ—


Natural plants and even alcohol have healthy aspects if used properly and responsibly not everyday, and not being codependent with any of them to function in one’s life is key in general⏳


I do not recommend any drugs or alcohol to anyone and I am not judging anyone for your choices, I am simply sharing parts of my journey,  if you can’t control it don’t do it๐Ÿ—


It’s a daily training of how do you want to feel, how do you want to live, how do you want to share your  passion and purpose to help others ? not jus oneself๐Ÿ—


I have not shared my journey with to many people by choice and I will say as I mentioned going back in time to 5 years 7 months I had to seriously choose to live and rebuild my life from the inside out mentally, spiritually, physically, and financially⏳
