Buddha Dream

This is called "Buddha Dream". Actually my first attempt at collage and I'm quite happy with it. I created this after my brother losing his fight with cancer and I needed bright colors and peace. That is what this painting/collage represents to me. I know you can't really see it but the crown is raised and embossed with metallic silver embossing powder. The lower right copper piece is an embossed piece of copper. Can you see the Lotus Flower? Go to if you are interested in purchasing this work of art. 35% of the sale will go to the new St. Anthony's Oncology Center in Gig Harbor, WA in honor of my brother.

Just go to or contact me and place an order.

R.I.P. David

R.I.P. David. 08-23-65 to 08-20-08. You were the most amazing brother ever. I will miss your quick comments, your advise, your smile and emails. I won't miss your love, because I know that will never go away. I will only miss the physical of you being here. You were the smartest man I have ever known and the most generous and honest. You were the most amazing husband and father, a treat to watch. You helped me realize so many things in my life and about myself, even just recently. I know you will forever be on my shoulder. Anjelica's too. All my heart my little brother.

Go to

35% of the proceeds will go toward remembering David Osborne.

A husband, father, brother, son and friend who was taken at 42 years old by an 8 year battle with cancer. David’s teenage daughter has set a goal of raising $250,000 for her senior project, so she can dedicate the lobby of the new Oncology unit at St Anthony’s Hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington ( St Anthony’s New Oncology Center ) to the memory of her late father. 35% Any purchase of jewelry or art from Carolyn’s web site, will help her move toward that goal. Your support will help the healing of the family as well as provide an important resource in the community for all of us who are touched by cancer.

Santa Clara University

Well, my daughter and went to her orientation at Santa Clara University! What an exhaustive but most amazing 2 days! That school is incredible! Not to mention how gorgeous it is. Initially she was getting some cold feet, but to see the excitement on her face when we stepped foot through the main gate was worth millions. And the more of the orientation she went through the more in love with the school she is! This will be a huge change for both of us since it has always been the two of us as a team.............since the beginning. Now the road is filled with wonderful journeys for both of us! Go Broncos!

Go to and check out the amazing Goddess Jewelry. Awaken your inner Goddess:
Venus: Sexuality
Athena: Power
Lakshmi: Success
There are 2 images of each Goddess to choose from. Each pendant has the stone that the Goddess derives energy from.

Each piece is handmade in the USA by two women artists and hangs on a sterling silver chain.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

These are some of my new pieces. Both are my original watercolors that I have reduced and made prints (teeny-tiny). Each pendant has a special word on the back and I can do custom orders with your own special word or dedication.

18th Birthday!

Today is my daughter Anjelica's 18th birthday! I can hardly believe it! I have to say that I have done a pretty darn good job raising her. She is beautiful, intelligent, thoughtful, generous, goal directed, happy, funny, loyal, stubborn, loving.............I could not have had a better child or best friend in my life! She is truly my best piece of "artwork".

Happy Birthday Boo!

It's 2008

Hey everyone, it's 2008 and I know that this is going to be a very amazing and successful year! My daughter is graduating this year......turning 18 this weekend. Both events are incredible to me! It is all bittersweet but I know it opens both of our lives up to fabulous new adventures!

I wanted to share my daughter's senior portrait photographer, Erin Lund. She is great and truly an artist. Check out one of the things that she did with my girl's photos:

Her blog and website are also included: Every family has a story to tell...Blog:
