"The Inspiration for my art, Finds me when I listen..."

Sunset Journey

A gathering of sunset moments...I imagine each shell is a whole world...complete enough to hold oceans full of sunsets...if we choose to see with infinite sight eyes...

Gorgeous day for watching ...the water...the shells...the sun...the calm that swells inside when the daydream becomes real...

I'm Going Home - Tracks in the Sand

Impromptu walk on the beach, Do you hear the language of water?...beauty and peace and answers...resetting the natural rhythm strolling along the shore...

Simple Perspective
Small fuzzy green plant in the winter ground

What if everything were simple...what if our jobs were to walk outside and just be...that is what I imagine plants must feel...with so many decisions made for them, location and perspective, the only choice they have...is to adapt to their surroundings...

Secret Garden

A place to be among the wild...if only in your own backyard...

Feeling the heroic vibes of these last summer blooms... spending as much time as possible soaking in the late summer sun...

What begins as no bed of roses can often bloom into a garden full of dynamic daisies...

Glass, Rocks & Fire
My Glass is Blooming

The glass is neither half empty, nor half full...the glass is blooming flowers...may we each find a way to grow some beauty in our glass...

There is beauty in the rocks, love the colors, love the summer, tiny pieces of Earth sparkling in the heat...

Was advised to picture myself in my favorite place to relieve anxiety...sunlight thru blue glass...the perfect shade of calm...

Fire Light Night
Camp fire against the dark night

Grateful for another day nice enough to have a little fire...love sounds and sights of summer nights...

Transcripts of Dream Memories
Swirling colors and images of small stick figures in various poses, acrylic painting with oil pastel drawings

Our experiences and memories continue to live on in the mystery of our minds.  I imagine that we hold the past in bubbles, perhaps carrying generations of events around with us.  Each new generation views the world through this additional layer of emotional lens.

 

The Law of Attraction says that like attracts like. When an image or a song "touches us,"the emotion of the piece has been attracted/connected to the same emotional part of ourselves.  That connection makes us aware of our emotion, sometimes revealing a forgotten sadness or anger. Now we have an important choice.  If we love the emotion we can let it grow, if we dislike the emotion we can let it go.  And this is the importance of art, it makes us aware of the emotional choices in our lives.

 

Surrounding ourselves with loving thoughts and joyful memories while allowing healing in areas of pain, can literally change our human experience.  This image speaks to this phenomena, that we shape our lives, one thought (bubble) at a time.

Blue Moon - Lady in the Sky

And like a silent Earth-bound message, the clouds parted into a feminine figure in the night sky, imploring us all to move forward with nurturing, mothering actions. Nature holds rhythms of peace; the ocean waves, the patterns and spirals of living things, night and day, seasons changing. Natural awareness, our most basic meditation, brings calming and healing, a vacation that is as available as looking to the stars. Like stars projecting light, peaceful meditations send out healing vibrations. Let our focus manifest peace and love and healing...
