The line in this client's original drawing appears to alternate between smooth and ragged sections. This indicates smooth and rough parts in his life. The red line shows emotions that are up and down; however, the blue and green lines show that he can rely on his strong intellect and excellent physical health as anchors. His wonderful, outgoing sense of humor is a great strength which helps him in times of trouble.

The line that this client drew begins with a free flowing fluidity that indicates a life full of success and happiness. However, in the bottom half of the picture the line becomes more complicated and twisting and even turns back on itself. This is truly autobiographical because the client has had a lot of success and is currently dealing with cancer. My painting shows a bright outcome because of her emotional resilience and strength.

testimonial  "Yesterday I showed my Life Paths painting to a friend who literally gasped when she saw it. It is an ingenious technique, and your completion of the single line I drew is truly inspired. I keep seeing more and more each time I look at it." -- Steve A., Poughkeepsie, NY

Dear Friend,

Thank you for stopping by the Life Paths Art page!

If you've been looking for a long-lasting way to follow your true path in life, I have some very good news for you!

I've discovered a simple way you can use art to reveal your inner truth, beauty, and unseen influences in your life!

What's more, for a very limited time, I am offering to do these paintings at an incredible price as low as $95!

Why am I making this offer? Let me explain...

The Life Paths paintings are composed using just four lines -- white, blue, red, and green. Each of these lines and their colors are highly symbolic. The white, primary line symbolizes the self. Blue represents the intellect and spirit. Red stands for the emotions and passion. Green is the color symbolizing the physical body and the natural environment.

Every line you draw or mark you make is uniquely your own -- like your signature or finger print. When you sketch the first line of a Life Paths painting, you are making an autobiographical statement. Your line reflects your aspirations, strengths, and the course of your life.

All you have to do is sketch the white line, and I will use your line to create a beautiful, personal work of art that reveals the powerful unseen streams of influence in your life!

If you happen to be wondering why these paintings are abstract, the reason is simple – you can’t reproduce the inner reality using images of the outer, visible world. In order to portray the inner world, we need to use elements which symbolize thoughts and feelings – and those elements are lines, shapes, colors, and textures.

Now I am offering to do these Life Paths paintings at a phenomenal price as low as $95!

I know that sounds crazy. . .

Why would I even consider offering to create these beautiful paintings for $95 when I could sell them for hundreds of dollars?

Let me explain. . .

There are two reasons this offer makes sense to me:

I know that everyone who commissions me to create a Life Paths picture will feel inspired when they view their beautiful paintings. As a bonus, I'll include with each painting, my personal interpretation of what the picture symbolizes. The pictures reveal much, and, as a person lives with their painting, its inspiring message will continue to resonate on a subconscious level. Indeed, the Life Paths pictures present inspiring visions of beauty and wonder which are often lacking in our lives today.

Knowing that my art is, at least in small part, enhancing the lives of others is a reward greater than any amount of money. I believe this offer allows me to share my artwork with more people and also to gain new friendships with people from around the world.

All I ask is that you share this information with others.

SO. . .
At the end of this letter I'll list the steps you can take to commission me to paint an authentic Life Paths painting for you.


I fully guarantee that you'll love your Life Paths painting or I'll refund in full what you paid, and you can keep the painting (or gift it to a loved one).

I love creating my art, and I want you to love it just as much as I loved creating it. That's the reason I'm offering this guarantee. To receive a refund, there's no hassle; you only have to contact me and provide me with the details of your purchase.

I'm grateful that all my clients have been delighted with my work and no one has ever asked for a refund.

So this is truly a no risk offer -- just a heartfelt artistic creation for you to try!

My hope is you'll love my art and this will be the beginning of a great relationship between us for years to come.

James Bennett's Bio
As an artist, I am dedicated to creating beautiful images that speak to viewers in powerful ways. Through my art, I want to share a new vision of the individual and our relationship to each other and to the world. In addition to painting, I also do calligraphy. Aside from art, I am deeply interested in the workings of the unconscious mind and ancient sacred texts. I have done nearly 200 works of art based on dreams, the Jewish Tanakh, and the Christian New Testament.
