Happy

Abstract – Receiving

You’re happy, I’m happy Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me” Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

Focus on the good in others and applaud them every chance you get.

acrylic nail polish and eye shadow

Before I go on and cover this up or add to it, I want to share with you what eye shadow from the dollar store and nail polish can do. (mixed media abstract)

We can travel or visit the same places, see the same things, i.e. areas of a physical space, but never is it ever the same as the last time we visited. Wait for it…. because nothing stays the same. =^_^= the only constant in life is change.

Today at Chapman Mills, the leaves have already begun to change, small changes, here and there, but change they are.

Face each moment, each place with a fresh outlook. I you handle a situation with preconceived notions or prejudices, your judgment will be clouded. Take on each situation with a blank slate, as if seeing it for the first time.

As an artist, this is an important reminder for me. There is an artist in all of us. Face each situation, opportunity, challenge with a creative mind. =^_^=

creativity

Good Morning, of course there is another version, but I’m showing you three, having done so by rotating the canvas. Our problems, challenges in life are not on canvas, we can’t just turn them around and visually inspect what is before us, but believe me, they are as complex and full of surprises as a canvas is to an abstract artist.

How will you see your day today, how will you deal with the many and varied opportunities that will appear before you? Will you even see half of them? I know some of my readers are familiar with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, since I’ve had occasion to talk to you about him before. He was a big name on everyone’s lips when the Beatles first took up with him, and wanted to learn more about his philosophies.

Today, I doubt if you said his name, many would know who you were speaking of. He filled ballrooms, coliseums, everyone one wanted to learn to meditate. It was fashionable. How many meditate today on a daily basis? It is like asking the question, do you pray every day…….. Personal questions, smiles, keep the answer to yourself… but think about it.

We are bombarded daily with the goings on around the world. We all want “change’ in some form or another… How many of you stay away from the word “love” or if you use it, keep it in the “social” general greeting part of your vocabulary. I personally don’t know anyone who has not been touched by “love” in their lives. some have the scars to prove it. (shame the word scar is associated with the word, but there you have it) With love comes pain, one seems to follow the other, like rain follows the sun.. and vice versa.

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing, be creative and do things to improve your day.

a new thought

Seeing is what makes life interesting No music to distract, only the visual. Make of it what you will, for my expression is done. The thought came, I executed it, now I too sit back and see it for the first time. This was the 24th. the next photo is of what followed on the 28th. Wait. no. I will post 28 tomorrow, so not to distract from the 24th.

The number 8 is considered a very lucky number. The year of the Rat will be auspices for many. I see a dragon frolicking.. hmmm a lot to take in.

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

Sands of Time

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others, When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do and appreciate them that much more.

good morning world!

Good morning, look I am up and awake, maybe not yet raring to go, but I am getting there. A change in my routine, and voila, still up, fed the dogs, making breakfast. Hey! (very Canadian) just like the good old days. =^_^=. Looks like I will still make my exit from the house to run errands at about the same time. Wow I am learning first hand, when you role with change, it can be exhilarating.

Use any result, good or bad, as a stepping stone. A;; outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our future progress.

itching palm

IMG_2584 updted, missing bottom inch

My Mother used to say, an itching palm means you will be favoured with $ and/or something pleasant. YAY. if I am not to sleepy from the allergy meds, it will be fun.  Another Mother memory is she said ear lobes can grow longer when you age. Mine have!!  Message to self, you still have lots to learn.


PL calendar day 9       It is interesting because  it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be,” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

My husband used to tell me that saving 50% was not a big deal,  he would be more impressed if I learned to save 100% .. Subtle … you think!!  I am still working on this one.

Smiles and waves.. love and love and love.

MCG demo 2

demo 2 mcg 5.2.19

Happy May 5th. Bom dia!

Another mixed media done for demo.  The idea with a demo of new and old products is to show artists, budding new crafters and seasoned expressionist  how to use some of the newer products that are arriving on the market daily.  Yes you an see YouTube videos but a video isn’t something you can touch, feel and  at the same time, have knoledegable staff who can and will help if you have questions.

I know that there are many who prefer to deal online for supplies, and if you know the product, and the supplier, have a particular way of working, and are not going to deviate from what you know.. then go for it.

My experience is that when I am in a creative mood, or am working on an idea, I want and need my inventory handy.  Part of the creative process in mixed media is to be open to new possibilities.  The demo -before- during prep.. sometimes, what is down could be up =^_^=   Abstract work, is lived in the moment.

demo mcg 2,5219The beauty of abstract mixed media… given the same products, no two pieces will come out the same.  How perfect is that.  We are all unique …  talented and beautiful.

PL calendar day 5    Start by thinking “this is interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it. From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come of it.

My bargain tulips are blooming…

tulips T T

I took a chance, and brought them home and gave them some love. Love is a powerful gift.  Share your gift with the world. PEACE  begins within.

A reminder, if you are in the Ottawa area and want to see some amazing dogs, and mingle with a dog crowd.  Visit the market today for the special event, to showcase, our dog population.    games, fun, prizes, special, canine treats.
