textures

When the landscape beckons .. I listen … sometimes I don’t realize just exactly what I’ve captured till I get it home and see it on my screen. This is a progress (change) that i really enjoy. At one time I would see something, then have to wait till my roll of film was done, and then processed before I could see my “capture”

We are not always wanting the “changes” that develop around us, but the acceptance and the inevitability of change is something we cannot change. Change is constant. We can refuse to accept or use new technology, that is a choice we make. I can vividly recall, my horror at using a bank card. now.. well now the horror is when I can’t find my card.

Saying never, is a limitation we place on ourselves.

Friends we meet, near and far, the internet friends we have never met in person, some are as dear to us and sometimes, even more, than the world we walk in everyday.

So saying I would like to thank all the new readers and welcome you to the community that shares this “webspace” with me. To my blogger friends, your sharing is an inspiration, my world is enriched 1000 fold, having you in it. May the holiday season be a happy and joyous one for you. We are always a keystroke away. =^_^=

we are share the same root system =^_^=

shades of white

Bet I didn't fool you  at all, I snuck in a picture of rust.  I know.  Sometimes after a sleep, the marbles don't always nestle back into their beds right side up. =^_^=

Yes for those of us living where we have distinct seasons, the coming months will give us many varieties of ways to show off our whites. Let’s make it fun, journal or capture the special whites.. after all, white does come in many shades, and each one of us will have a different appreciation of the hues and vistas we come across.

Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. (Makoto) When we are doing something, especially if it’s a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

rust you say!

Nay it is art…

IMG_20190831_112725_resized_20190901_123149043

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

IMG_20190831_112744_resized_20190901_123148650

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

innocence in art

anna June 23

When we are young and begin our journey, art is a creative outlet.  A way of expression. Young eyes, will replicate with whatever medium they have on hand and will delight us with their drawings and insights.

As we travel the road of life, our thoughts and views take on different forms of expression.  This drawing was done by my 6 year old niece, seeing it, I was filled with memories of the days where I lay with my pencils, crayons and rescued papers, designing what I knew would be the gowns and dresses of the “fashion” world.

What happens to our dreams, do they actually go away, or do they blossom into an assortment of different colour and shapes.  I still think of drawing and using fashion when I sit to “express”  my thoughts, the key word being -think-  that disappears the minute I see a blank page/canvass.  My innocence has had years of living to change its perceptions.

PL Precept #1   Life is Art,   friends, go with the flow, the only constant in life is change.  Life your life to the fullest, appreciate and be grateful for all the comes your way.  Growing pain and all.  You “art” will shine and continue to be uniquely yours.

chop suey Friday

Sticks and stones, rocks, brick, lumber, everything in life, is canvas ready.  each day a new beginning. Art is everywhere.  To each his/her own…..  creativity begins within.

I remember when I began landscaping in earnest, I would pick up driftwood, rocks cast off metal objects, an empty lot was a huge canvas .. one that would grow and give me a new “view” every season and year.

PL Precept #1  – life is art

Make every day count.  Share your beautiful/handsome smile today, Life is good!!

research

scrapbook centrale may 25

Object,    considering a class at Scrapbook Centrale, pick up deck of cards.  Live in Ottawa, drive to Montreal for deck of cards. ????

Look again, see the deck of cards.  No I don’t either.  I went next door to a Dollar store to find a deck, and it took walking up and down the aisles several times. I kid you not.

The workshop that I had considered taking, was one that involved 52 cards (standard playing cards)  Having purchased the playing cards, and begun the first step of putting black gesso on a few…..I am now, no longer considering that class.  Yup.. I have been drawn to brighter more electric colours and find myself reviewing options.

Research is good.  So is change, timing is everything.

PL Day 26   Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible completing whatever you set out to do.

It is a bit of a drive to Montreal, but the inspiration I get there, the ability to see and enjoy the creativity of others AND the vast array of products allows me plenty of fodder to research.

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror

PL Precept # 19 Begin Once you Perceive.

There has been a profound change in my life that am adjusting to.  My faith, LOVE and Life itself, keep me filled with appreciation and gratitude for I am humbled every day by the kindness, and genuine friendships that I have been blessed with.  Whether near, or far, I do love you all.
