In my story, Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist, my protagonist and adventuress, Mona Lamar, travels from Texas through the Caribbean as she runs from her shadow of despair and learns about herself and her life purpose.
This page is dedicated to captivating imagery and prose inspired by the vast Texas landscape... the endless waters of the Caribbean... her Creole lover... and the rich, spiritual culture in New Orleans, where she uncovers the answers that she's been searching for.
I invite you to dive in and connect with this mosaic of ideas as you find yourself in this creative journey.
Mona's spirit exists universally within our hearts and the truths she shares will stand the test of time... Welcome to this glimpse inside the heart of a Texas Artist.
Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist - The Sketchbook, is a short story about an artist in search of self-actualization. Mona Lamar is a jewelry designer and Dallas Design District gallery owner, whose passion and lustful vulnerability grows with so much fervor that she is pulled by the forces of nature to overcome her fears in pursuit of self actualization. Mona accepts her Hero’s Journey with passion and doesn’t look back. As she’s chased by her dark shadow of despair, she hijacks a boat, sails through the Caribbean, falls in love, becomes entranced by an enchanted priestess, and receives instructions to return to her place of birth, New Orleans, to understand and accept her ultimate truths. This book leaves hundreds of blank pages for you to sketch and journal as you accept your Hero's Journey.
