Art Of Happiness by Ken Johnston


When I moved to Dallas, TX in
1999, I created this 18" x 24"
personal collage to explore and
affirm what I wanted my
experience to be as I made a
fresh start in a new place... joy,
security, adventure, happiness.

I collected images and symbols
from od magazines to portray
these feelings and ideals, and
arranged them over one of my
own paintings, which I then
placed upon handmade paper.

This collage was created with the
same purposeful intention my
students have in my Finding the
Heart of Your Life workshops.
