About-

Portfolio of Painterly Poems: A Pilgrim's Path to God is a collection of poems in a variety of forms that are informed by an artist's eye. Beauty is a lens. Color is sacramental. These poems will appeal to reflective people who feel certain that there are many paths to God, including aesthetic hikes with vistas of beauty and insight. These poems are celebratory without being saccharine and religious without being didactic. While this book is not a self-help manual, it contains hints of hope and healing, glimpses of the good and sightings of spiritual strength.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In her new book 'A PORTFOLIO OF PAINTERLY POEMS: A Pilgrim's Path to God', Sharon Chace captures, in both words and works of art, details that most travelers through life pass by. Readers share her delight in visions from the natural world: tiger lily leaves 'like a cat's tongue stretching toward a treat, a green with deeper growl,' and 'Two leaves blowing like skaters on a crystal pond.' Her poems, often paired with a watercolor painting which reflects a poem's imagery, show a delicacy of perception. But Chace transcends a mere description of nature, by acknowledging gritty realities that accompany a parent's aging, for instance, and by venturing past the perceived into spiritual truths. She advises readers to meet life's challenges: 'Join the Pilgrim on his progress and trust in 'shoes and prayers.'"
--Lois Lake Church, editor of "Pennons of Pegasus", poetry column, Record-Journal, Meriden, Connecticut

"These poems are a sharing and purging of the soul. They carry me on a rising tide - wrapped in an analogy of life forms. The force flows strongly. Your book is a kaleidoscope of inspiration. Put me down to purchase the first copy. This is one I want to own."
--Carol A. Christoffers, Secretary. Meriden Poetry Society, author of CAROLSONG: A Book of Poems
