Bucket Lists, hot air balloons and parachutes

how many kinds of olives are there?

how many kinds of honey bees?

how many kinds of pine trees?

different looking icelandic sheepdogs!

these are things i would like to find out and put in some of my paintings.
i decided Not to do the 144 panels i was after.  I changed my mind.  I found a more self loving, gentler way about doing my art.  I was thinking 144 to get myself on track of which kind of materials would I use?  what is the easiest, deepest, conservationist, soonest to hang way to do my painting.

i also discovered i may wish to cram images into some paintings and on others be more simplistic, almost nearly all white even.

I would rather now, not have the pressure to finish one painting a week for three years.  tho maybe without the added pressure i was putting on myself i might even do more?

we will see :)

you are welcome to come fly into my paintings xo

I am teaching myself about how to fly into my paintings inspired by self love, gentleness and grace.

Finding a new perspective

There comes a time when enough healing and change has occurred that the perspective literally changes the way one looks at things.  For instance, sitting in a chair that I have sat in for 14 years and not ever let my vision go beyond a certain point out the window and then one day I do

Phrases for today

Sometimes no is is a great thing to say

Sometimes stopping what you are doing and showing some love is a really really good thing

Live your truth

I am reading Kamal Ravikant's book "Live Your Truth"   In it he says, as you Love yourself life loves you back.

I feel this to be true.

Next panel

Gearing up for new 2 x 4 panel.  No minimalism here.  I hope to cram in as many prints as I can.  I keep saying I am going to do this.  2 winters ago I did go super minimalistic.  I left prints and did straight acrylic.large landscapes.

More prints = more fun = more energy
