PL Calendar day 7

Day 7

Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy

When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)

origami 3.4.18Remember this from yesterday.  I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it.  To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done  (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is)  Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.

I didn’t know that I was so  hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it.  The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.

Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new,  I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it.  I have an artistic bent as you all know.  The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years.  Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.

This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.

I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.

Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.

sleepless in

piglet bedtime Thursday 22I want to cheerfully say…

Good Morning everyone… however, having been awoken to activity, and then have 2 full-grown whippets try to snuggle down with me.. ((((who let me add, wanted their breakfast))))  shall we just say, “happy Saturday” and get up to meet the day.

I know you have met little Piglet, but I have been working on texture, I think that you are able to glimpse it. What you can’t see is Piglet’s nose is shiny, with a wet look.  I’d love to know what is at the bottom of the cup, she seems so pleased with herself.  From the smudges on her face, ?? anyway, she seems happy.  That is all we can ask for isn’t it. A happy Piglet.

In life there are circumstances we can control, and other’s we can’t.  A wise person once said, “know when to pick your battles”

Today’s PL Calendar page reads,   “Listen” and “See” With Careful Attention and Accept Each Other.

“Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.”

I like this card, I no longer have it, but still have this picture .. Makes me smile, YOU make me smile,  Let us all have a day where we share our happiness with others.

Rust on Canvas

rust on canvas 2.5.18

rust on canvas

1930’s

mixed media

abstract, acrylic, paste, recycled canvas, mega art stones, paint roller, textured Catalyst brushes by Princeton, layering, natural dry,

rust products by Art extra vagance, (Finnabair) made in Hungary

mega art stones -Finnabairn (art ingredients)

In the past I have used sludge from  DeSerres (Tri Art)  I spilled my last jar and have yet to replace it, so the above was done using alternate products found in my inventory.

rust supplies

To achieve a result, often requires more than one product, and when one  ingredient is not available, if we are determined to get the result we are hoping for, we explore what is available, or easy access, and we experiment.  It doesn’t matter if we succeed exactly as we had wanted what matters is that we do our best .. and try.

*** and *** that you are happy and cheerful while you are creating. Happiness is a state of mind. It is the journey that counts. When we are not open to every possibility around us at any given time, it could be a missed opportunity.

Seize the day, make it yours.  Have a great start to a brand new week.  Each day is a new canvas…Play, Explore, Live, take the initiative, be the first to smile and say hello.

chop suey Wednesday

Good morning everyone.  I thought I would start today to talk about laziness.  Seriously this is one of my “work on it” traits or “flaws”  Being a visual person, I woke to a perfect example to share with you.

cafeland 1.17.18

This is a game I play on my iPhone when I am somewhere waiting, ie. for a dental, or doctor’s appointment.  Now that I no longer have an iPad, having gone for a phone with a bigger screen, you know the size of the screen I am working on.  Interestingly, the game on my computer is the same but not the same, my computer being a Windows format.

When I began on the iPhone/Pad, I had to start all over with a new café, in this new format. Fun I thought I can do something totally different.  Off to the races I went, enjoying myself, watching my money grow etc.  However, I don’t have the friends to play with in this format, but lots through the game.  I digress.

Last night I decided to start decorating for the Chinese New Year, which will be coming up soon in mid February. *year of the Dog* (lunar calendar)  The program suggested I take a picture to show my friends, I took a picture and sent it to myself.

To my horror when I looked at the picture this morning, I was assaulted with the glaring objects of my laziness.

  1. I didn’t clean up the floors before taking the picture
  2. I saw where I had started to change my servers and didn’t go back to make sure all of them were done.  In fact, I used some from my inventory rather than buy the shiny metal ones that go with my  décor ..( frugal and lazy)
  3. The tips could have been collected, but in truth I didn’t see them, again, I didn’t take the time to look

Small over sights maybe, but in my case, I lean towards lazy, we all do, intention is to go back and fix it, but as the days go along, and since it is only me playing, none of my guests to this site, are known to me… bla bla bla… excuses.  After making time to fix up the café, start on my remodel, I take a picture .. and voila. caught on camera…

We just never know do we.  this is a fun example, but it IS an example, we never know, taking short cuts, neglecting to do something “just because”.  A camera never lies the results can be photo-shopped or edited,  but lens itself, never lies.

PL Precept #15  All is a Mirror

PL Principle #1 I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
