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.

Happy 25th (terca-feira)to all

Andre 12.25aLife 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

Ink and paint

ink spotHello

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.ink spot

Experiment, have fun, be playful.  Enjoy today, it will never be back in the same way.

paint time

Good day everyone….

No two artists when looking at a blank canvas see the same thing.  Two photographers looking in the same area, along the same street, will each have a different “capture” in their lens.  Ever heard these words.. ” you were there, didn’t you see bla bla bla”   Well, you both might have been there at the same time, but you both very likely didn’t see the same things.  Each would have viewed the scene or circumstances from his/her own perspective.

Now the word “artist” what does it imply?   Or the word “crafter”  are they one and the same… hmmmm. you thinking about it?

Does it come down to how quickly you want your pant to dry?  No two mediums dry the same way ,even when choosing an ink pad, you have to know what you want to do with the ink you are using.. if you use the wrong kind, your inks can bleed or run… even when you thought it was dry… kinky right..

That is why I love life and all the artist challenges it provides.  When I make the wrong choice, .. I get to start over or try to work with the results of my 1st choice. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn’t.  A friend draws in chalk, she lives the moment, when it is gone, she has lived the experience,  and moves on.. that is a beautiful way to let go.

I loved the play of shadows and light on the bramble above.  It struck me at that moment that it was full of intrigue. Today should I see it again, I might not give it a second glance. It would simply be a mass of twigs and branches waiting for spring  and rejuvenation.

La vie est belle, it is our perception that can cloud or colour our view.

I prefer arylic and water colours to oil… why…. paint time… =^_^=

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

Mother 1921-2017

Mother passed 3.6.17

Mother’s life was like an abstract painting, she lived creatively and managed to  keep all the  assortment of unique personalities that she loved  on one mosaic canvas.  She had an inner strength and resolve that kept her going for 96 years. Pansies were her favourite flowers.  She loved colours, when she set her mind to something, it got done. In later years, she loved to , crochet and knit in quiet times, but she dedicated much of her life to volunteering and working for the good of others.  She remained actively involved in all her charities and “projects” till well into her golden years. RIP Mother, your unconditional love and tenacious spirit, will always be with us.
