Windowpainting.org was created as a result of Carole’s (my Mothers) generosity of freely giving art instruction to any interested party. I have scanned 175 pages of her poetry including her Painting Windows poem into a book format. We recycled her poems as she had already decorated them up and her mind has turned to her musings... If you go to Amazon to see this creation be sure and use look inside feature, it is sweet and uplifting and some of it is uncanny, it is art.

(below are a couple of reviews written by friends)
The poetry of Carole captivates with great scope of the art whereinshe chooses to express herself. What is a poem after all but the wordswritten in musical rhythm. These poems have the texture and strengthof silk, they sing. They have a delicious taste that lingers in ourminds. We can be so comforted by them. I will read these poems againand again and so will you.Judith Shannon, poet and editor, aka - Judith Shannon Paine.I first knew Carole through a mutual friend in the early eighties inDonnelly, a beautiful and graceful, soft-spoken lady. In those daysshe expressed her compassion through her love for animals. She spentcountless hours each week at her “Pet Swap” on the street corners ofMcCall, finding homes for surrendered and stray dogs and cats. Genteeland introspective in nature, gratitude for life has always played abig part in all that she thinks and does, and the poetry in this bookexpressing that is found in works such as “My World.” In her wakingdreams, where spirit crosses the veil, she hears these lovely musings,which unfold like the flowers of a springtime mind. -- Lois Fry, Musician and Writer.
Beauty and Strength are a window of respect for life.Strength is a window to your soul as it sits in the seat of its purpose.And beauty is regard for the same, it remains beyond youth in all of its graces,beauty's the knowledge of truth in ones life.
I write under various names on a site I put up to look at my language. I am pretty wild with a pen (kinda goofy with a brush)...
