What story would you want him to depict?

Why is it abstract?
It's important to know and appreciate the reason that Life Paths Art is abstract. It is abstract simply because thoughts and feelings cannot be accurately depicted through images of the external, visible world. As Wassily Kandinsky described in Concerning the Spiritual in Art, to effectively portray our inner reality, we must employ elements that symbolize our thoughts and feelings. These elements are pure lines, shapes, colors, and textures.

  Simple Examples

A smooth, flowing line that represents a happy, carefree attitude and rhythm. It also resembles handwriting.
A geometric design that connotes mathematical thinking, logic, and systematic construction. Very intellectual.
A wild and crazy line that has some parts that seem to express anger and other parts that express playfulness. Quite confusing.

Can Your Life Paths Painting Be a Portrait?
Yes, it can. Actually, I've done more portraits than anything else.
Here's all you have to do:

First: Simply sketch a single line. Your line is personal to you -- unique just like a signature or fingerprint.

Second: You select your favorite colors.

Third: Your autobiographical line and chosen colors will then be incorporated into a truly remarkable and personalized work of art!

Alongside your painting, you will also receive a certificate of authenticity, as well as the artist's written guide on how to interpret your Life Paths portrait and effectively utilize it for visualization and meditation.

Embrace the unique experience of collaborating with this talented artist to bring your vision to life. Through thoughtful conversations combined with artistic expertise, James Bennett will create a masterpiece that resonates with your individuality.

Additionally, he has prepared a comprehensive guide that will assist you in exploring the deeper meaning behind your Life Paths painting, enabling you to explain it to others.

By utilizing lines, shapes, colors, and patterns, Life Paths Art externalizes internal feelings and thoughts, facilitating deeper introspection and self-awareness.

The artist will
guide you through this artistic process, ensuring that your final piece becomes a cherished symbol of your unique life's journey.

Collaborate with the artist to create a painting that is uniquely about your life's path!
✔Art that portrays your inner strengths and beauty!

Incredibly beautiful and engaging meditation art!
✔A unique instrument for personal transformation!

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 troubling issues. My painting shows a bright outcome because of her emotional resilience and strength.

In this Life Paths painting the client’s line shows two pointed loops. These indicate that the subject has many interests and tends to swing from one thing to another. However, this is not entirely bad because the subject keeps these varied interests in balance and bring him great satisfaction.

This painting also incorporates an additional element – a vertical strip with cryptic lettering that appears to be ancient and mysterious. These letters spell out the client’s name.

A Certificate of Authenticity and a complete written guide to interpreting the painting are included.

Who Is Bennecelli?

Bennecelli (James Bennett) has devoted himself to a multifaceted art career spanning some six decades. He has  studied with several internationally acclaimed artists, has been honored with numerous accolades and awards, earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts from prestigious universities, and worked as a self-employed artist and teacher of both adults and children. He is highly skilled in a wide variety of media and genre including oil and pastel portraiture, acrylic painting, and calligraphy.

Bennecelli has authored and illustrated several books on calligraphy and handwriting which include a six-volume curriculum on italic handwriting for grades K – 4. Subsequently, he researched the psychological interpretation of handwriting. In addition, he studied, in depth, the dynamics of lines and shapes in art as detailed in the writings of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.

In 2020, inspired by a dream, Bennecelli began creating his beautiful, transcendental “Luminous Streams” art series. In 2022, he invited about a dozen friends to participate in the creation of new paintings in the series -- each person drawing a line from which Bennecelli created an abstract painting. The initial idea was simply to experiment in creating new and different designs. However, much to Bennecelli’s surprise it became apparent to his discerning eye that these paintings were profoundly autobiographical of the people who drew the first lines. And thus, Life Paths Art was born.

Not only is Bennecelli an extremely talented artist, but he is also gifted with the ability to interpret in detail the initial line that a client draws. In addition, he can discern through the three lines he adds to the composition, insights gathered from his subconscious, further revealing key facets of the client's life.

Today, Bennecelli has perfected the technique of painting and interpreting these autobiographical works of art. They are true revelations of the client's true life's path.

Dear Friend,

Thank you for visiting my Life Paths Art page!

I have some very good news I'd like to share with you!

After devoting over 50 years to serious involvement in the arts, I was inspired to create an entirely new kind of art -- art that can be used to reveal a person's inner strengths, beauty, and unseen influences in their lives!

I believe that recent studies by psychologists using neurographics art in therapy have validated my discoveries. Although there are similarities between Life Paths art and neurographics as developed by Pavel Piskarev, a Russian psychologist, there are also major differences. Life Paths paintings are primarily autobiographical art. In a sense, they are abstract portraits revealing a person's inner qualities. I believe they have a broader role than just art therapy.

What's more, for a very limited time, I am offering to do these paintings at a special introductory price as low as just $95 -- roughly the cost of a pair of less expensive sneakers!

These paintings are worth many times more than my asking price, and here's why...

Not only will the lines, colors, and forms of a Life Paths painting hold your attention and delight you when you first see it, but over time, it will continue to inspire and enthrall you. It will also become a fun conversation piece among family and friends.

Most people are surprised when I tell them 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, whether you realize it or not, 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, often unrecognized streams of forces 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 might earn. 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 let others see your Life Paths painting.

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 love 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.
