face, 5.4.19

What happens when you have time on your hands nd you want to recycle an onion bag. I go into my workshop and play, Meet Ms Onion, she is now waiting for her transformation, when I have time to  spend time with her in the “makeup”  room.

Good morning everyone!  How lovely to see so many smiling faces yesterday at service. Our  new Hokyoshi from Brazil, Yoshizumi Terada was our master of ceremonies, when it came time to sing, we all got to enjoy Com Quem Contar with dance movements. It was a DELIGHT.  Thank you Yoshi.  Another Brazilian member Kaiser Lette Bueno added his voice to the song.  “Andei, Andei E encontrei  Oshieoya Sama, Oshieoya Sama.

Com Quem Contar has to be the most joyful song, I love it.  In English the title is Who to Trust.

Perfect Liberty, day 6   Past, Present or Future, Always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing t that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  At each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status

Take note – Saturday May 11, service at 10 a.m. Ancestors Day

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.

beginnings

IMG_4178

The fun of starting something new, is that one never really knows what it will end up to be.  what I showed you yesterday, and this today, are beginnings.  Like one would sketch an idea, I am using fabric.  Already when working this piece last night, I could see a glimmer of what I was NOT doing, that I think I will try when I continue playing,

When we look at a visual, it leaves an impression, that our gray cells will process in different ways, over the course of minutes, hours, days, who knows when what you saw, will reclaim a moment of your “now” to present itself in a different way.

Whatever your medium, photography, paint, ink, text, fabric, if you are expressing yourself, through a visual, the colours, patterns, shapes and textures that impressed themselves on your psyche will show up.  Some colour combinations will never draw my attention, because, my “personal” makeup is drawn to shadows/light and colours that are attractive to me.

This is one of the reasons I love life, and find it so fascinating.  I “see” the world in such a magical way.  I loved this picture, didn’t know why till I got it home and saw it on my PC screen.  When I took the picture, it was instinct.  Now all I see is the wild animal preparing to chow down.  =^_^=

Beginnings never have to end. Love the choices you make in a day, embrace the adventure of life.  Appreciate your friends.  Life IS.

all photos and work, mine Q

hexagon – sometimes

Quilted flower 10.27.17Sometimes, you decide to cut out a hexagon.  You have an idea.  But before you can really get carried away, your creative self goes to work… and yes, you do hexagons, but this is what you end up with.

There is another step or two that followed, but the picture may or may not be completed, so… I leave you with the above.  I wanted fall colours, and I’ve done a flower.  We will have to wait to see what comes next.

Sometimes, we have to know when to stop, take a step back, and wait.

Happy week-end everyone!

Wordless Wednesday – bird house

birdhouse 2

Oh dear, was the mess cleaned up?

wet birdhouse

Ohhhhh, I think it is still wet….

PL Precept # 16  All things progress and develop

Positives – the girls finished painting the bird house

– they didn’t wait for more paint, they used what they had

– faced with a challenge, they took the opportunity to get it done another way

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

What!

bird house 7.11.17

Part of the bird house had paint on it, but the rest was devoid of any colour.  Instead, Rosie saw colour everywhere else. Splashes of vibrant colour was all over the papers, strewn on the floor.

She tried to imagine what had taken place, but besides knowing that the girls had been going to paint the birdhouse, she really had no idea, what had transpired during the time she had been in the other room preparing the evening meal.

Closing her eyes she tried to remember which of the girls had suggested the project. Leonie’s face popped into view, her face and hands splattered with paint.  ChenMay had been with her, of course now she remembered, they were going to try to paint the bird house like the abstract painting they had seen at the gallery.

She opened her eyes to see the girls all looking at her expectantly .. they were waiting with great anticipation for her to say something.  She didn’t know what to say, she was speechless.  “hello” she said, “what happened here”

They all began talking at once, “one at a time please” she suggested.  Then one by one, they began their tale of the painted bird house.  They had all wanted to paint the birdhouse, but they couldn’t agree just how to go about it, so, they decided that they should each demonstrate their ideas on paper.  They had so much fun with the paint when it dripped, splashed and swirled that they had gotten carried away.

One thing they agreed on, was that it was fun to paint each in her own way, and that being happy was what counted.  They were sorry the bird house didn’t get painted, but they could try again tomorrow…. and please  ..Rosie … they ran out of paint, could they have more?
