The Meeting of Hearts
In the bustling art scene of the late 60s and early 70s in California, two artists, Larry and Sandra, were drawn to each other’s creativity and passion. They were young, filled with dreams and aspirations, and shared a deep love for the arts and creative lifestyle. As their relationship blossomed, they realized they were meant to create art and a life together—as a result, art and love was fuel for a blossoming story of love and art. An artist’s journey became the story of two lives living a life of love.
Larry and Sandra left California to continue their artistic journey. So they moved to Hawaii for inspiration and a deeper connection with nature and themselves. During this time, the islands’ breathtaking landscapes, vibrant culture, and close-knit communities offered the perfect haven for their artistic souls to flourish. The island lifestyle, surfing, sailing, and fishing were ideal elements for hearts filled with hope, and they embarked on a new chapter in their lives.
Larry and Sandra continued to pursue their professional artistic endeavors in Hawaii. Larry’s paintings captured the ethereal beauty of the islands, while Sandra’s images captured a young family growing up. Their art studio in Honolulu was a perfect place to create art using silk screening and airbrushing as media on glass, wood, and clothing. Their island style of artistry transcended mere aesthetics, transforming into an iconic brand that resonates with the vibrant spirit of Hawaii.
Forty-Four Years of Love and Growth
“The search for something intimate in the remote; that is what draws us into the desert.” Above all, the desert became home for the next four decades; Larry and Sandra built a family and nurtured a community of artists and creatives. As a result, they became pillars of support, encouraging, and mentoring young talents. Their shared love for art became a binding force, weaving through generations and creating a legacy of creativity and passion.
Larry and Sandra’s love story extended beyond their immediate family. Their children and grandchildren embraced the artistic spirit passed down through the generations. From talented musicians and dancers to budding photographers and writers, the family thrived on creativity. The beauty surrounding them influenced their intimacy with their family and friends. Difficulties became opportunities in the artist’s journey.
A Love That Endures
The love story of Larry and Sandra is a testament to the power of love and the impact of art on our lives. Their journey from California to Hawaii to Arizona symbolizes their willingness to follow their dreams, embrace new horizons, and create a life filled with passion and purpose. As their family grows and flourishes, they exemplify love’s enduring nature, inspiring others to chase their dreams and create unique love stories.
Larry’s spiritual journey reflects the human quest for truth and meaning. Born a Jew, raised a Catholic, and drawn into the New Age movement, Larry’s path eventually led him to a profound encounter with Jesus Christ. Through his journey, Larry discovered that faith is not confined to a specific label or tradition but lies in God’s unwavering love and grace. Larry’s story reminds us that our spiritual makeup is ever-evolving, shaped by the diverse experiences that lead us to deeper understanding and a closer relationship with the divine.
I experience the world created by the Creator. My mission as an artist is to depict the sacred mysteries of God. The desert has nurtured our calling as artists. When I am exploring, identifying, and integrating spiritual thoughts, I am in my calling for God’s mission.
