The sizes range between 4’10 up to 6ft.

Springtime inspiration by Paul Carter

It’s very inspiring for me to experience the 4 seasons of color and spring is the most colorful time want nature.

Those are wild flowers above and below are flowers from the ecology center In San Juan Capistrano.

It is a certified regenerative organic farm open seven days a week with healthy clean produce and much more.

Get out and explore nature in your areas and embrace it all with gratitude.
I get inspired to create art from nature to reading the Bible to movies to music and much more.

This is a spontaneous sketch of healthy positive reminders for the daily journey of life.  

The first Edition of (waves of change) was a time of about 3/4 years with a few later sketches that really helped keep my mind-spirit-body & soul present and focused on the positives in my life.

Wine vineyard & waves art by Paul Carter

I was recently listening to a podcast call the black wine guy experience and it was a interview with I think John and Dottie, sharing the journey and how wine became part of the life and business.

This sketch is a great reminder in many levels to train the brain with the positive focus and words daily.

Here is one of two sketches I completed inspired by the podcast.   I have been fortunate and blessed to travel to France and I stayed in a vineyard outside of Bordeaux.

Traveling is the best experience in so many levels.
