Here is one example.
I guess they always call us starving Artist because it is so hard to sell Art and writing sometimes! I love both and I have tried so many avenues to sell but it seems like I see so many selling and mine just sit or people will want me to write things for them but for free. But I still love my gifts and I LOVE writing on here so now I will be content with that. Does anyone else have struggles like this? I am going to try and have my usual reader other blogs day if I can do it today. I love to enter your Worlds and see how it is going. have a great day/evening wherever you are!
The ability to read people can be hard. In the last few months, someone who has tried to destroy my reputation, my life and my ability to even write or do art because they are like a non stop plague has really affected me. Now, even with the ones they are “allowing” to speak to me because they think they succeeded in destroying me have fake faces and black hearts. They can smile all day and fill it with I love you’s. I believed it before because I loved so deeply but now I can see it for what it is. Fake. However, I did a lot of prayer, breathing and meditation this morning and I am not going to let them win. I am going to soldier on as they say and write, work on art, do my photography even if it means standing it alone. Better that than to be caught up again in a pit of snakes. It is hard because I am a kind person but so many times it is those with good hearts who get trampled on. All I can say is if you find yourself in my position, get the steel plated armor on and fight back by being as strong as you can. Let go of the toxin and let love for yourself take over. I hate when I rant like this but I hope to maybe help someone else who is facing what I have and encourage them. SOLDIER ON. Do NOT give up. 🙂
Just some art to show my wackiness of doing Art that reflects my moods.
Needless to say, we all know 2020 and now 2021 has proven to be, well, strange, sad and confusing. The many things that I try to work on such as Anxiety, stress, grief and the loss of loved ones took its toll. So, I had to have something to help. That is when I let my love for art and writing kick in. I had to have something. I found new creative ideas and I am glad because it kept me from going insane. Now, I just draw or paint whatever comes to mind. One plus in the last season of weird. 🙂
It has been a busy week for my art projects and orders are coming on. My daughter started promoting it and BAM! it is filling up so I have not had a chance to get on here. So, I just wanted to say how blessed I feel about that. On other things, raven the delightful Shepherd got out again when she found another great escape. I had to chase her down, get a leash on her and wait for my husband to run home and fix the damage. lol. Lucifer the dog from across the street is back at his antics and chasing all things including me. (I escaped) But sadly, the flowers in the edge of my garden did not go without his wrath of punishment. His owner offered to do something for the damage but I just laughed and told her it was fine as long as it is flowers and not my ankles. lol. And my cats are indeed aliens who love to catch me off guard and scratch or bite me when I least expect it. Aaaah. Life is back to normal here. hahahaha. I hope you all have a great evening/day wherever you are!
I am so glad to have the ability to do Art. I am blessed and happy for that. I am happy to be able to have my Prayer, my Yoga and the different ways to diffuse the chaos that can try and overwhelm my mind. So, I take days off to read your blogs. I take days that I solely fix on Yoga and Prayer and Meditation. This week I am focusing on Painting. it calms me. It soothes me and it keeps my mind of another World I enter when I paint. I hope all of you are have some great things to help release as well! 🙂
Well, along with writing and other things I do I picked up the brush again. I just decided to fall off the beaten path and try some new things. This is my first. Cow with a bow on its head. lol. But I like it. It cheers me up for some reason. I hope you like it too!
I just love different sometimes. This Painting said what was going on in my mind. I started this type of painting after I lost my oldest daughter. My mind was so confused, my heart torn, in a World only I understood. This, for me, was a my way of showing how my heart and mind felt.
I love this. It took forever but I loved it.
