Want greener grass? Water it! Mazing Motivation

Maze 364 by Warren Stokes

“The grass is greener where you water it.” Neil Barringham

I chose the quote because not only does it make sense, It is a option I never considered.

The quote provides proof that we are in control of our lives and how we choose to respond. Powerful words to inspire action towards our life purpose!

Mazing Kentucky Derby by Warren Stokes


I started drawing maze art in 08. That year started a 10 year trend of bigger life challenges that at the time seemed impossible to overcome.  My sons kept me from giving up and the mazes mixed in the art healed me.  Drawing daily I maze out whats on my mind from the alphabet to political issues.

I’ve started creating mazes for the purpose of sharing with others for art therapy! You can play the maze and color the piece and of course send me a copy to post on the site! Inspired by the Kentucky Derby I feel free to print the image, color it!

Mazing Motivation: Practice may not make perfect but definitely a better maze!

Maze 4 by Warren Stokes

This is maze 4 of 700+ and I have to say looking back that practice definitely helps. Although Im impressed with the pieces and the design its was definitely basic to what I’m creating now. The maze was drawn in pencil and traced in sharpie on a 8×11 piece of paper and probably took 3 weeks to complete. In comparison I could draw the same piece with a animal in it in less than an hour!

I never could have gotten to maze 700 without number 4 and I’m grateful and inspired by the journey of haven drawn and developed my mazing style. As well as the art therapy the maze work has provided along the way.

You know your a Sideline Daddy when….


Sideline Daddy by Warren Stokes

 You abuse the referees: This is one area where Sideline Daddies really act a fool! Regardless of the fact that without them you have no game, Sideline Daddies treat these volunteers like the scum of the earth.

Regardless of the fact that their kids are not pros in the NFL, NHL, NBA, or MLB  parents scream at, cuss out and on occasion threaten to “beat the referee’s ass after the game.”  I feel that this has 3 major impacts on our kids. First it teaches them to make excuses rather than to deal with “the call or no call.”  It shows the youth that they shouldn’t respect authority. The game is ruled by the refs so bottom line they need to be respected.  Finally the refs are human, if you don’t think its easier for them to see more stuff on your players team after you cuss and threaten them then your naive.

At the end of the day a ref has never reversed a call because of the parents complaining so leave them alone. Don’t be a Sideline Daddy!
