February 22, 2012

The Lord is so good....the more chaos in the world, the more He draws me to calm. In that calm He has blessed me with this new world of art that I honestly did not know where it came from!  

Since Christmas, and the watercolors, a cosmetics company approached me to do 8 watercolor gals for their labels.  As soon as I have the watermarks for her, then I will post the pictures.  

One after another, they just flowed!   So, now I did  one for myself today.  It was too unnatural to have a day that I didn't paint one, so... I will continue.

The Calm, the Mood

So, since Christmas, this calm has come over me, the jobs have come and gone and the paintings just keep coming.   I am excited about the next one about the time I get done with the one I am on!!  This process was so fun with this twin painting..  enjoy! 

                                                           getting started

 everything but the kitchen sink....nail polish, glitter, polish with glitter...
 let dry
 I love these colors together, even on the palatte

 Now, I need to back and frame them and they will be ready for the art gallery!!

New Beginnings

Wow, what a terrific start to a New Year.   I have decided to do more paintings, for myself, to develope the style that is in my head.   I needed to declutter my mind.   The paintings that have been happening since then are exactly what was in my mind.

I even talked to a gallery in town and he thought I had some promise, so I am going to attempt 3 to 4 of each medium.  The framing is in my brain this is a new adventure for me. 

I am thankful for my window painting, and getting out to see customers also, I would miss that if it ever came to it. 

But it is fitting better into my scedule since I downsized.

as always, vist my ...Art2ya on FaceBook and My Website

Christmas Light overcomes Chaos

I finally got some time off, Wow, what a season!
 the past few days have really been a respite for me. A chance to stay home and contemplate what my next steps are .

This whole year has seemed chaotic and spinning, between family, business, events in the US and the world, I am again humbled that the Father of all chose me to be one of HIS!

So, one of the things that I have tried over this period of time was a loose abstract, which is very foreign to me. It came out so easily, every stroke with precision, purpose. It was exciting to paint.

It wasn't until after, looking at it , that it came to me exactly what it represented. 

To me, it is a picture of a glimmer of what we are going to see in the not so distant future. That the LORD OF LIGHT, will, eventually come and overtake the chaos of this world.

Just a catch up...

This is the day the Lord has took the day off. I tried to sit on the couch and found out I couldn't....I just get ansy.  

One of the Lord's commandments is to keep the Sabboth, and rest.  I have learned over the years that I MUST take one day off a week or I get over~stressed then I get sick =-[    So, I have learned one of the many reasons that God told us to rest. 

I did putz in the greenhouse, replanted the tomato seedlings that I planted as seeds about a month ago, they are up about 3". I turned my head right at the right time to tell Ranger to NOT EAT THEM!!  She saw green and loves salad and grass....I could just see that...poof, there go the tomatos...LOL!!  I planted more Stevia, the first seeds did nothing.  I wonder how strawberries would grow indoors, anyone ever try it?   If we were to sustain ourselves, where would we get FRUIT?????? It saddens me to see all of the orchards gone, and the ppl with trees just let the fruit rot........what a sad, wasteful generation we have been. We have taken so much for granted!

The days are getting so short. I am thankful for the joy of painting holiday windows to make the first part of winter bearable. We are usuallly home by around 4 when the sun is getting ready to go down.=-[   Fashion goes out the door with the cold....warmth is the order of the day!!

Well, caught up for next time, maybeeee.

Thank you Lord!!!!
