with the Global Family
my book, Journeys with the Global Family, you embark on a fascinating written
narrative and visual art adventure with the people of almost every nation on
our planet earth. The book also features with a descriptive narrative, my international
award-winning Western, wildlife, scenic, and other portrait renditions, including
my written and sketched insights into the Face of Human Suffering and Survival
& the Face of War from my field medical rescue experiences in Vietnam, where
I was twice wounded.
sincere hope for this historic presentation, is that the readers and viewers
of this visual global journey will seek, and continue to cultivate, new experiences
and levels of open-spirited understanding, appreciation, and respect toward
every color, creed, ethnic and cultural heritage that has contributed so many
interesting and positive colors of value to the meaningful balance in our common
humanity. Within this context of openness, I seek to celebrate and stimulate
a fresh appreciation for the features
make each important individual fingerprint interestingly different, and also
a deeper awareness for the limitless threads of similarity that draw all citizens
of this planet closer together as one interdependent Global Human Family.
written and visual art journey also reveals my personal observations, concerns,
and positive insights concerning the freedom of the human spirit, the physical
care of people, and the high priority I give to balanced environmental concerns
and World Peace as a state of being.
Since the Premier Opening celebration of my
book and Faces of the World exhibition at the United Nations, New York (the
first one-person exhibition in the history of the UN), the purpose of my 15-year
adventure continues to experience a unique and fulfilling calendar of intriguing
discussion group question and answer workshops, slide presentation storytelling
lectures, and keynote presentations at international conferences, churches
of all denominational and religious markings, and colleges, universities and
schools of all grade levels overseas and throughout North America. Either
portions, or my entire global art collection exhibit, is featured at every
presentation where I am invited to share my stories and global insights. Personalized
copies of the book are also available at each presentation.
