One of the Apps I am adoring right now is Adobe Capture. It’s available on my iPhone and, oh, so much fun! I remember as a kid, my favorite toy was a kaleidoscope! And this is what Adobe Capture brings to you via “pattern”. It boggles my mind with delight! Really!
For me, art is the action of playing with the unknown. It takes bravery, lightheartedness and kindness to self. Enjoy!
Do you have any questions about art? I’d be glad to answer whatever I can.
I think daydreaming can be helpful when it’s on the positive side of things. One of the most unique places I have ever visited is Key West. It still holds for me a sense of heart art!…..click for more…

Choose a favorite photo and put it on one of these items. Buy it for yourself or to cheer up your loved ones. There’s nothing like a few moments of creativity to get up where the action is!

It isn’t hard at all to draw! It is hard, however, to get over the fears that you aren’t good enough to be an artist. Many of us think we cannot draw or paint. You’ve heard folks say, I can hardly draw stick figures. But even if you start with a stick figure, you are definitely on your way to drawing your pet.
There’s one thing we don’t fight about: life can be pretty stressful. I’ve always had one great support system, though, and that’s my relationship to flowers and flowers to me. The more I focus on the magical mystery of flowers, the faster stress just evaporates. What a gift of nature!

Today, I am going to take a jug of bleach and make the house brilliant with good cheer. I am going to give it a good old try! We are alive! We are here and able to make the world a better place by connecting to a happier level of existence. We are able to live in the state of happiness. We just have to stop and choose to put on a happy face, to think of something more pleasant, to think of the ones in our home. Bet they can use a fellow housemate who has a positive outlook on life.

By embracing the changes this pandemic has brought to our door, we can survive. We can thrive!
Face mask covers have been both a challenge and an opportunity for this high risk, older couple to make a contribution. What gets us up in the morning are thoughts of our family, especially our grandchildren, our friends and neighbors. We can visit over FaceTime or play remotely on PS4 games. Now we spend the major part of the day painting on our iPads or on canvas, able to offer them to the world. We love this connection with you. So, thank you!
As my mother often reminded me: It never hurt anyone’s eyesight by seeing things on the brighter side of life.

I’ve heard it said, Gratitude is the healthiest of emotions. So I propose music, writing, dancing, painting, drawing, singing, liberal arts, are the healthiest of activities. And, don’t you know this is the time to stay healthy. 🙂

My soul awakes To the thought of heaven As I drive over the hills To get a glimpse of the ocean And hear the crash of waves. My heart beats fast To the joys of heaven As I step out of the car To feel the breeze upon my face And find a world of […]
With a trip to the nearby thrift shop, I have spent some time experimenting with painting on glass. I bought 6 wine glasses for 25 cents each and a plate for 75 cents. I began painting the plate with acrylic and saw that the adhesion was spotty. So, I waited for it to dry and […]
With the unique nature of life, we often miss understanding others, and even ourselves. This can throw us out of balance, leaving peace behind. Appreciating the beauty around us, accepting what takes place in the moment, and then cooperating with that moment, can lead to renewed peaceful living.
You probably have wished you could live right on the beach. Haven’t we all? We can watch the vacation and buy-a-house-on-the-beach videos. Or we can take a piece of paper and lose ourselves in drawing our special, private beachfront fun land. This is how I spent this afternoon. I’ve been playing with a digital rendition […]
Well, in my little corner of the world, I have successfully completed my personal challenge to write every day in February! It feels so good to achieve a goal that is self-imposed. How do you think we celebrate?
AT THE END OF THE DAY, RATE ALL THE FUN THINGS YOU ENJOYED! By reviewing your fun day, you set up your tomorrow. And as your tomorrows grow in fun, you become the fun person who enters the room!

You feel good when you meet up with someone who inspires you. It’s like breathing in fresh air! When you are in their midst, you can feel the activation of life building within you. You leave the old, gloomy life and again believe in better. Friends who motivate you in this manner bring special gifts. Treasure and cultivate their friendship.

Fall in the Pacific Northwest. What will we do with this special time? Run from the quiet? Will we stress over the man-made holiday season? Or might we daily join nature for five minutes?

My attitude creates a scope of vision toward everything that is happening in my life. A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E I love to frequently remind everyone I meet, that the sum of the placement of letters in the word, attitude, adds up to 100, ( a=1, t=20, t=20, i=9, t=20, u=21, d=4, e=5; that’s 100%)! One hundred percent of […]
There are many opportunities to change unhappy situations around us. I guess we just don’t know that we have that power! Somehow we have come to believe that the only way to change a situation is to fight against it. It appears that when bad things happen, we spend the majority of time talking about […]
A thought for today. It can be a great day of exploration and sharing! It is up to us how we will perceive each challenge that comes our way.
These are the thoughts that came to me after painting this picture yesterday. When I spend any time with nature, (even imaginary nature), I begin to see the current of life hidden within everything. I begin to feel about my life in a different way — everything I focus upon appears special and I am an integral partner. Through […]
I am in the process of creating an environment that includes the beach in the front of my new home. The best way I see for creating this is to see from my eyes what the room would look like and what my view out the window would look like. I began with the view […]
