Lunar Dog Year

Year 2018 —— Dog (earth )

Dogs are capable and knowledgeable, and it is not unusual to see Dog people in high demand in the job market.  Dogs like to work at whatever career they choose.  Prince William, Elvis, Cher, George Gershwin, Mother Teresa, were born in Dog years

As a partner Dogs are extremely loyal  although they think they know best, it is fortunate that they are usually open-minded. and will be open to advice. Generally speaking with their sensitive and compassionate heart, they do well in occupations or careers that “serve” or work in the best interest of others. ie. teachers, charity workers, doctors etc.

Unlike other Dog years the Earth Dog is less idealistic than most Dogs, the Earth element makes them practical enough they don’t lose sight of reality.

In China dogs are usually associated with justice and compassion.

We are living at a time, when the plus, positive characteristics of the Dog, could stand us in good staid.

  HAVE A HAPPY START TO THE NEW YEAR.  BLESSINGS, GOOD HEALTH, AND PROSPERITY always.

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.

Anticipation, taste sensations, nurturing of the body,  Food, what is it with food, we can spend so much time deciding on what to eat, how to cook it, what will go with it, enhance it, and then for some of  us, how much to eat of it.

Yet, when it comes to the health of our “mind/spirit” our day-to-day emotions, we allow others to influence and affect the “inner balance” of our personal “self”

PL calendar 3 . Use the power of your smile

A smile has the power to help people feel at ease, cheer them up, and at times, give them courage.  Smile and spread your warm-hearted energy to the people around you.

Thursday doors 2.1.18

When you see a building off in the distance, you know you are going to get closer.  No matter the weather or the road conditions on that day,

A simple structure, not sure what it is for, I wondered if it is decoration or for children to play in while the parents enjoy a coffee break.

When I found the door I was excited.  Wow… it is all in the details.. rustic, charming, certainly a cheerful moment in an otherwise ho hum day .. (weather wise)  My husband and I enjoy this park, in the summer, it is not over crowded, and the breeze from the water is always refreshing.

We didn’t get there last fall, due to circumstances beyond our control, so this was a very pleasant surprise.  Put a door on something and all of a sudden, it becomes a much more interesting place.

PL calendar 1 – It is important to live in harmony with our surroundings.

This little house and door,  fit into the landscape just beautifully. =^_^=

Maintain harmony in your lives, daily, harmony is the basis of a peaceful society.

turn on the light please or open the light please

the date has been moved ahead, or has it been pushed back

costco 1.26d

does that picture have meaning, or is the meaning the picture

close the light, or shut the light

costco 1.26cI realized that we were miles apart on that one thought

you really were adamant and for me.. simply, it didn’t matter

what mattered, was that you be happy, I let it go

instead, I said, I loved you….

and my heart sent loving thoughts your way,

you laughed, and that was that.

Thursday door – dreams

Alexander Lautsyus January post

Door –      usually we think of a physical barrier that opens, closes, revolves, but what about the doorway to our dream states, or entrance to another realm.  When Alexander posted this picture in earlier January of this year, I was immediately transported to another place, a state of mind/Being.  I had no words to describe how it made me feel, it just spoke volumes to me.

I immediately texted him asking for permission to use this photo, this is a copy, to see his original post, please visit ice art Jan 22.18

The picture for me puts a visual on the “feeling” of some of my dreams.  His 1st picture in that blog, reminds me of when I am searching looking out, and this one I’ve posted, reminds me, or gives me a feeling of happiness and joy.  He was on Lake Ontario, he looked, he saw, and he captured.

Not a physical door, but definitely for me, a doorway, an experience of walking through to another “world”.  For “real” tangible doors, you need to link to Norm 2.0 and from there follow the links to all the other bloggers who post to this feature.

Thanks for sharing today, it is a beautiful day, and you are all part of my sunshine!

Oyashikiri

a special thanks to Alexander Lautsyus for allowing me to share his “works” with you

and to you Norm for indulging “my” love of all doors/doorways
