Joy Is.........Entering the Positive Zone
Hi folks, Do I need to say more? They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well.....?
I struggle to stay positive at all times. And when I say struggle, I mean STRUGGLE! I am loving my new happy abundant life, but I am around too many negative vibes all of the time. But, I can't dwell on that negative force here.
Yesterday I went to Niles, up by Fremont to take a Zentangle class. I had a blast! Here are the two tiles we did, but I need to finish them. I love the doodle part of art journaling and this is the shot in the arm I needed.
Yesterday I posted my Writing on the Wall post for my friend Cheryl and showed a pic of the canvas that Lotus made me for Xmas. Here are a couple more shots of it:
Beautiful! Lotus had a very tough 2011. I am sending her positive vibes so she can begin to build her life back and begin to make her art a positive part of her life again. This canvas was a struggle for her to create. I am touched that she created it for me.
Less Herger sent me a drawing I had bought from her a couple of weeks ago and included this:
OMG!! I love fountain pens and had been having trouble with one I bought recently, not working right and had been talking to Less on Twitter about it. I was so stoked when I saw this. WOW! This is actually a waay better pen than I was trying to use. So I just need better ink and I have some on order. I have always loved how they write. Woot! I am in love!!
I have been taking a Strathmore Online Class with Traci Bautista. And the best part, it is FREE! Traci Bautista is a genius when it comes to painting and doodling in journals and on canvases, etc. This is a 4 week class and there are videos that show step by step how she creates. Run, Run and sign up NOW! You will love it!
My friend Eva is tearing up her studio and rearranging this month and she has got me thinking that way too. Gasp!! I actually did that last January and now thinking about it again. But just thinking...............I can't sweat while thinking!! LOL
So looks like I have run out of steam for this week.
