Healing & Peace

Fiona and I collaborated on a Christmas tree for the festival of Christmas trees. Peace Cranes by Fiona and tree and leaf forms by Barry. I thought I would share an image of the tip of one of the 'branches' - brown paper Peace Crane and leaves.

Over the last couple of weeks I have made a couple of sets of Daily Words that focus on healing. These are gifts for folk who are dealing with the challenge of threats to their health and life.  When making these sets I focussed on the recipients with the view to adding a little more positive healing energy to their daily lives.

In these challenging times may a little more peace and healing ripple out to those who need it.


  1. Barry- These are really beautiful. I am feeling more and more the need to have my own artwork work toward the healing of others. Thank you for sharing this piece (and the Peace Tree, as well). --Julie

  2. Beautiful, Barry. I'm glad to see more of your tree, and the Healing Words are especially nice!!

  3. Thanks for the wish Barry. Richard needs it at present, with vision problems.

    Faith makes all things possible,
    Hope makes all things work,
    Love makes all things beautiful.
    May you have all three for this Christmas!
    Merry Christmas!

  4. B - I love your collaborative project with F. A beautiful gesture of giving, I'm sure will create a 'healing' ripple effect! Christmascheers, K.

  5. Challenging times for sure.. you have probably heard about our recent tragedy and sadness here in the USA with our gun violence... thank you for your post on peace and healing.

  6. TB, VA, JM, K & D - thanks for your comments and Christmas wishes. TB - our art certainly offers the opportunity to bring both happiness and peace - go for it. VA - the attracted quite a bit of attention; and healing words will be more in play in 2013. JM - wishing healing for Richard. K - thanks for your comment about F & my collaboration - complementary. D - the USA event of recent time certainly heightened our awareness of the need to continue to vibe for peace. All - may peace fill your days. B
