Life is lived in segments. Remember when the phone was thought to be the greatest of inventions. A voice from across the miles, would bring cheer, maybe only once a year. At Xmas, everyone would gather around the phone, and wait eagerly to speak to the relative, or friend who lived far away. It brought everyone close.
What time was spent with someone else was precious, not taken for granted, it was appreciated and remembered well into the years to come.
Spend today enjoying the sunshine, create your own. If you skimp on a painting, then your painting will not turn out well.
PL calendar day 25, There is no reason to hold back
If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well. Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest
mixed media art Q
Greetings everyone… A bright sunny day shines before us. I started a pen and ink last night, but of course, since I do mixed media, I of course played with different mediums.
Life is much like when we begin a painting. We start out with an idea, and as we progress with our idea, we find that we want to either add or subtract from our possibilities. The advantage of course of a visual on canvas, is that we can stand back and review what we are doing. If it is really unsettling, and we don’t like it, we can either paint over it, or throw it out.
Not so in life. that is why we encourage the practice discussed in today’s calendar lesson.
PL Calendar day 7 Don’t strain, don’t rush and don’t be greedy
When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly. Instead, relax and enjoy the process.
Experiment, have fun, be playful. Enjoy today, it will never be back in the same way.
