LIFE IS ART

Perfect Liberty Precept #1

EVERYTHING EXISTS IN RELATIVITY

perfect Liberty Precept #7

In life we live each moment of our days, doing, thinking, taking action,eating, sleeping, whatever, there is usually an activity involved. the results of our days, some are productive, some less so, but…. the reality is.. for every “action” there is a “reaction”.

When we take a picture, we capture that moment in time. To the photographer, he/she saw and did so much before he/she took that picture. We see only the results .. what was captured in that moment when the picture was taken.

Mixed media is another re-enactment of sorts. the artists starts with an idea or inspiration, then pulls, tears, shreds, paints, pastes, stamps, whatever to accomplish an end result. In my case, instead of a photo, I call it a “doodle”. (dictionary -verb- to scribble absentmindedly etc.)

Will you “doodle” today, or dawdle…. LOL whatever you do, have a grand time doing it. and… SMILE!!

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.

mixed media greeting

OK here you go…. this is the little greeting card.. … the trick is to know when you’ve done your part.. the rest is up to the viewer.

Thanks to everyone, its been such fun sharing “her” progress with you.

Everything that happens to you is material for growth.

Work well with everyone, regardless of their age or position..

Tanto los superiores como los inferiores, avances unidos.

The doodle cards are 4 x 6 =^_^=

Another doodle for you

I’m enjoying your comments and what you see in these doodles.. Likely do another layer on this one tomorrow.

Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself.

Andre Breton

Live today filled with enthusiasm. Life is an accumulation of the efforts you make, day by day. Live keeping in mind that “today” only comes once and live your precious life to the fullest.

once upon a doodle

rose and lion mixed media doodle

LOL I have no idea why the name.. well I guess I do. The rose is the fluff upper left. I had to rewind and ball of wool that was so tangled I was only able to save 4/5ths of it. Never one to waste a good piece of knotted and fluffy wool, I balled it up and put it on the doodle card I was working on.

While drying it took on the look of a wet rose. Of course the ultra matte gel used to sculpture it in place, changed the effect somewhat.. but in person, I can still see the outline of my rose. My lion is in the pieces of discarded paper that I ripped up from some notice or other… and layered it in a rolled ball that obviously flattened and mushed around. it is the Distress oxide inks that shade the papers that gave my Lion its life.

Beauty as you know is in the eye of the beholder. I can tell you with certainty that playing with mixed media.. making colourful messes is very therapeutic for me. =^_^= … A good night’s sleep works wonders too.

The everyday t hings you do will show when it really counts. If you have a tendency to be careless about everyday matters, you cannot expect to perform well at crucial times.

a little this and that… Eliza or anyone else out there, have you had experience with bromelaids? I found a beauty the other day, and brought it home.

for my other friends, I was up packing up a box of cleaning supplies shortly after 6 a.m. from under my kitchen sinks. I no longer have duplicates and half full containers.. Tidy now yes, but will I make use of the products??? ah… that is another matter.

lastly, Blues tonight 5 pm SL time.

sharing

Yesterday, I forgot to take my medication. ?? How did I manage that? No excuse really, I came home, was tired… thought only of having a bite and then going to bed.

Being a diabetic when I took my reading this morning, I was surprised to see how high my number was considering it has been so good. (light bulb moment) I did not remember to take my medication and insulin before going to bed.

In PL. we are reminded to be aware of each moment, to pay careful attention to what we say and do. Last night, I was more focused on my goal, of getting to bed. So this morning, I see the results of inattention. I will try to do better today.

In PL, we refer to such slips.. as “lazy mind”.. PL Principle # 12 I will get up pleasantly in the mornings.. So saying, I will tuck this little wisdom in my pocket and get on with my day.

I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

how busy you feel is a mater of perception

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. the joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

Gratitude

There will always be a way

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Perfect Liberty 2020.28

Always pray “for the happiness of others and society” Praying only for your ow wishes is not the true way we should be. Strive to do things for the sake of others, and pray for their happiness as well.

Perfect Liberty 2012,23

My appreciation and thanks to all of you who keep in touch, comment, participate in my days.. share your thoughts, photos through your blogs. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

The above photo was taken by a friend in NZ Shirley Keen, we go back so far, I doubt even she remembers when we began to correspond. She lives in a part of the world I have never been to, her walks, and the wonderful pictures she share from her walks and day trips .. are amazing. It is in sharing the joys in our lives that we continue to expand our own horizons.

May you all be blessed with a day of positive and healing energies. Be safe, be alive! Count your blessings.

statements

Ever wonder what to do with some of the mail you get. I have decided to use my MC statement to work on a mixed media piece. On the right is the first go round, the left is the second, now letting it dry. Will work on it more when I am back in the studio/office later today.

I have gone mostly electronic, however, this being a new account till I am happy with my use of the card, I will continue to monitor with hard copy. Meanwhile for those of us who dabble in mixed media, its perfect for ripping, and reusing.

After days on end of brilliant clear skies, it seems we are in for some rain, the humidity factor out there is HEAVY. Perfect day for indoor activity and getting errands done that don’t require being outdoors. Oh dear, the pot holder rack in the kitchen is sending me winks and smiles.

Whose idea was this anyway. This means, hot sudsy water, SOS pads, and some elbow grease. hmmm how does that song go… “rain rain, go away”

I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

neglect

…it is that brief moment which unfolds before the soul… the chronicles of time, and reveals to the eyes… the deeds of the night.

…and the works of conscience. It opens Eternity’s secret of the future.

The beauty of life.. Kahlil Gibran

I’ve used his text, from his book The Beauty of life… in a different context, but if you will reflect.. we take what once was perhaps not beautiful, but a functional, and attractive building … put up signs, then go away and just ignore it.

how is it, that we find this so easy to do

There is always a cause behind every result. Good things and bad things can all be traced back to the cause. Once you discover why things turned out a certain way, your outlook will change.

Perfect Liberty 2017,24

Good or Bad, It is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.
