Friday 13th

Sometimes the mind travels through space. Stopping in places you had forgotten you knew. Nothing unpleasant, just moments of fog being replaced with brilliant blue skies. Took one of my “free” drives today, no place special, no where to be, just the need to drive. Picked up a willing co-pilot, and off we went.

Driving towards the Quebec border, on a secondary highway, it was pouring rain, overcast skies, with only periods of lighter rain, When the rain slowed down, the sky would get somewhat brighter and the wet bark of the trees could be seen glistening, giving us sculptures reaching for the heavens.

Just past Hawksbury, we turned the car around and headed west, back towards the city. Suddenly the rain stopped, and the skies began to clear. The transformation was startling vivid. Baby blue skies, fluffy white clouds, it became a totally different day.

2 days in one. Interesting. The winds picked up.. it seems that I got home before the mega winds. I can hear them now.. hard and violent against the house.

It was a range of weather today… like emotions, the weather can be calm, restless, volatile, warm and welcoming, or like today… a roller coaster of some of everything.

When you think “I’ve got it,” Think again. It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

Mixed media, collage. Acrylic paint, texture mediums,gel, pastes, sculpting and paper craft. Variety is the spice of life.

Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself your true beauty will shine through.

dreaming

the night was clear
it was time to fly into “slumberland”

the enchantment of the night

the desire to be free

my spirit soars into the beyond

knowing that out in the Universe

the calm and serenity of the night

would make my world alright.

landscapes so blue… so true

the moonlight colouring the land a gentle blue

a mesmerizing hue of all that is real

when in a dreamscape I am with YOU.

old China 12.28

Ola, bom dia. Old China is the latest piece I am working on. You have heard me say this before, as an artist of sorts, I never think about what it is I am gong to do, rather I am just “led”. By this I mean I come into my studio and see something that catches my interest in this case it was a blank canvas. I know I want to use certain colours, I don’t ask why, I just reach for them and let my desire to express take over.

When next I step back and look, I think… ok… what is this. In a distant far off memory, I think of China. A book cover or picture I saw of Old China. Thus the name, Old China. Of course it doesn’t end there, the paint as to dry, so between the layers I have been off doing whatever else has involved my attention The above is about 4,5 maybe 6 steps. I don’t think or plan, I just do.

I realized that much of how I live is like I paint, or express myself. I simply live the moment. I say simply, but it isn’t always simple for those around me. Do you ever consider how your actions can affect someone else. Seems I will have another lesson to put on my to learn page.

In PL we learn, PL Principle 21. I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

During the night and some time in the early hours of the morning. I worked some more Old China. Here she is this morning.

Am I done, I don’t know. At the moment, she is happy … so I will leave her be and check on her later. Meanwhile everyone, have a grand day, the sun is bright in the sky here. Hope it shines on you too.

consideration

yin/yang life

Good morning everyone, let me begin by apologizing, I got many e-mails yesterday, it seems there was no link to my second post yesterday. I have since added it, and here is is for those of you who looked and couldn’t find it. https://dymoonadventures.wordpress.com/

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situation s of othersk not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too

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.

mystic Monday

lush, beautiful … soft, sensuous

gentle rhythms pulsate — in the tremendous

flight of imagination … that takes place

when I am drawn into that creative space

of canvas, acrylics and the artists need

to create the emotion that begs expression

all because my computer misbehaves

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

Free your mind to consider other and all possibilities.

Happy start to a new week!

What happened to the 13th.?

PC Is telling me it is the 14th today.  I saw all the Tim Holtz Halloween temptations this morning.. and wasn’t rushing out the door to find, said items.  What is happening to me? Those of you who are familiar with my creativity swings… the first sign of cooler weather coming, (meaning fall) my colour palette changes to earth tones, and often I turn to dark creepy and drag out my tombstones.

1st day 12.14.18_037

There are many sides to our personalities, often we find one we are comfortable with, and that is the one we wear. However you and I both know that each of our friends, or acquaintances, bring out different facets of Me Myself and I.

Think about it. How often will you react in one way with your partner, but should a friend or someone else have said or done the same thing…  your reaction would be different.  There are times we are not even honest or comfortable with ourselves.

How others see us is not how we see ourselves, nor is either version a true one. Ours is the one that counts.  Ours is the one that has to be worked on, tweaked, and sometimes revised completely.

PL Calendar day 14    – Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for YOU.    Always be mindful of the situations of others, not just your own.  To have a good relationship with those round you always think of what is important to them too.

For me, mixed media 4.18.17

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.
