In this video you will see some of the amazing yuka trees and the many plants and some insects on the journey.

The peace and quiet of the desert is an emotional journey from the inside out, from the high paced activities living in Southern California or anywhere for that matter,  it's all based on one's choices depending on the conditioning and what we think are priorities.

A painting a started to cover one of the water tanks needed to live in the desert to be self sufficient and self contained in this diverse environment.

How to draw a surfboard mural by Paul Carter

My shaping journey began in 1993 learning on a skill100 door planer.

I learned a great foundation of shaping by numbers with the guidance of the master craftsmen Steve Bahne of infinity surfboards.  It has been a learning process everyday.

I shaped every board by hand and in 2008 I just broke the 6000 board mark in all shapes and sizes from longboards to mid range to short boards, I surfed and shaped about every design out there from single fin to twin, 3 -4-5 fin boards which really helped with the whole custom boards designs for all ages.

As you will see in the video There is a creative design process of drawing surfboard to a tropical surf scene as shown in the color image.

Abstract art writing painting journey by Paul Carter

A abstract painting from the past to the present,  a journey of clearing the mind and sitting down and writing out all the old conditioned thoughts into all the positives in and around me.

 When you look at the painting you will see the small pieces of paper that I cut up and pasted them onto the white canvas then painted over them. 

 When I first started doing these mind cleansing writings around 2010-11 the first 3 to 4 sessions were an emotional journey of releasing many layers of the negative conditioning that we all have one layer or another.

(Waves of change)
Abstract art painting writing
Abstract wave painting by
Paul Carter
Keep in mind when or if you decide to do this process it is between you and God and the universe or whoever you believe in and is for your eyes only, unless you choose otherwise.

The first two or three I shredded and burned the writings to release and let go of the old stuff, it's your choice.

In closing in this painting it was the beginning of all of the positive thoughts and words.  I was inspired to paint this wave recently in the month of 10-2017

Painting surfboards & health tips by Paul Carter #038

Hello thank you for your time and checking out the latest surfboard and artworks with this spontaneous Live feed.

This is a time capsule of my story as a surfer/shaper/artist with some painting tips video and healthy tips that I have learned on this journey.

It is so important to stay focused on taking care of oneself daily, what I have learned that works for me is to feed the mind and body first thing in the morning with healthy positive foods for the mind and the body before I get into the my life and priorities 

Some of what feeding the mind look like for me is reading the amazing stories in the bible and lately I have been listening to Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton ministries on youtube and study along with the videos. 
                                       San Clemente Surfboards & Artwork by Paul Carter
The next thing I like to do is some strengthening and stretching which consists of some push ups, sit ups, and legs exercises each varying depending on the day.   

My outdoor activities range from surfing, riding, jogging, hiking to name a few of the powerful grounding exercise to clear the mind and stay stoked and fit from the inside out. 

The third important key is feeding the body with optimum micro and macro nutrition for maintaining a daily recovery and repair foundation to enjoy living a healthy quality lifestyle.  

I know that I am responsible for my health, happiness and wealth by my daily choices and I have been on the dark side searching with drugs and alcohol and people, places and things that have led to truly trusting the one true source and creator of all things good which is GOD.  

Now I know your conditioning is going to many places in your mind and I also know that for me to share this is a step of faith with positive intentions to inspire and help you not waste this valuable life and stop waiting for something to happen, all the while knowing now more than ever it is up to me to do the work and the activity to keep growing forward today and every day.

Growing organic urban gardening PaulCarter

These systems are pretty amazing from the option to grow 20 to 36 plants in 2.5ft of space is pretty cool to say the least.  
I have been growing with two of these for over 3 years now and the maintenance is filling it with water once a week during the summer months to basic tips like picking any dead leaves off and wiping down the tower once a week.  In short I spend maybe between 10 to 20 minutes once or twice a week because of having two towers. 

Was at a recent conference about health and nutrition and how the body heals and grows through recovery and repair with micronutrition, which is key.

Taking steps to health drawing by Paul Carter

Taking steps towards health each day is key.  This drawing goes back to another life time in 2007 and the steps I have taken since then have changed my life from the inside out on many levels.

This is a some of what I have learned from the inspiration of God,  This is not about religion it is  about a relationship with the unconditional love and inspiration and strength and courage and everything positive I trust through faith to believe and take the steps daily and do the work with the inspired creativity I receive and do something useful with my hands Eph-4-v-28
It is mental, nutritional, spiritual and physical balance each is connected and affects the other.  I know from trial and error the importance of having a daily morning ritual is key for me to stay grounded and focused and clear before I get into life's responsibilities.

Drawing with palo santo wood by Paul Carter

Drawing with palo santo wood by burning the wood and by turning it as I am drawing it eventually gets sharper.  I know what your thinking why don't I simply sharpening the wood?
I thought about that but the ritual of burning the wood and drawing is a journey in itself simply by doing the activity and the work is key to learning.

This drawing is part reality of growing up and my travels around the planet and the memories and imagination from my mind in a spontaneous inspired creation. 
This drawing was shortly after a morning balance breathing session to get grounded and clear before I start my day.  if you would like to know more about my daily rituals send email to or 949-370-5807 and I look forward to talking with you.

Freedom from the fog into health

Morning fog 630am reminded me of how I searched for many years to find clarity and focus  and purpose with passion.  I Am connected to the unlimited source of God and the creative freedom that comes from doing the work from the inside out to release and get renewed mentally, spiritually, physically and the soul.  What I learned from drugs and alcohol is they both kept me in the fog from waking up with clarity, focus and awareness to having more euphoric feelings without either one.

Ink Art positive reminder by PaulCarter

We hold the keys to the choices we make each and every day to either do the work from the inside and grow forward and really clean house or repeat the same thoughts and pictures and patterns and ask yourself why hasn't anything changed in my life.   It is a mental, spiritual, physical and soul journey each and every day.   I know by experience what works and I Have learned to simplify the process and the time it takes to get healthier in much less time and money. So what are you waiting for and how long are you going to wait before you get yourself where you want to be from the inside out. 

So feel free to send me an email to or call 949-370-5807 and will get set a time to get you in track and enjoy life on a higher level.
