The  past behind.

The  future ahead.

Presently,  lost in both,

Absent of the present.

Staying present is one of the hardest things  to do, and  is truly the secret to living a happy life.  I know this because I have been able to live like this in snippets. Short sweet snippets.  Times when I was really  there. Fully THERE. Not worrying about the future or feeling guilty about the past. Those times are nirvana, they really are. Maybe it is because it is such  a challenge to live presently that when we manage to do so,   it makes it all the more special.

I loose touch with my ART when I loose touch with the present. My ART demands my full attention, it does not want me thinking about whether it is going to be good enough or what is going to happen to it in the future. It does not want me to compare it to other ART. It NEEDS me to believe in it  and when spending time with it, it wants me to be fully engaged. My ART does not want me fretting about doing the laundry, making dinner or cleaning the bathroom. It just really wants me to give my whole self to it and have fun doing so.

Now take the word ART in the last paragraph and replace it with Children… or even spouse, friend, mother, pet or,  here is a good one… SELF.

Be present as often as you can.  I know it is really, really hard,  but as my Mother always says  ” nothing good comes easy”.

Looking Beyond

This is a 6″x6″ mixed media painting on wood. The sides are 1.5″ deep and are painted turquoise.
This painting is $70 and is available HERE.

The week after Christmas is a time when we look back at the year that has just passed. The media are filled with these type of memory stories.
Best movie of the year.
Person of the year.
TCM’s remembrance montage.
And so on…
This year was a good year. We are all healthy and happy. But boy, did it ever fly by. I really can’t believe how fast it went! My three-year old turned four and grew up over night. My six-year-old turned seven and turned into a long-necked, beautiful ballerina. My husband wrote a whole musical which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. My mother had her knee replaced, pretty much a life changing experience for her and those around her. And me, I had several shows, magazine features and surpassed 130 thousand hits on my blog. This is huge for someone who, only three short years ago, painted very infrequently and only for her families viewing pleasure.
I can only imagine (dream) what this upcoming year has in store for me.
Here is to looking beyond.
Dreams are set in motion everyday by taking tiny baby steps.
Cheers everyone, thanks for making my dreams come true and for your ongoing support. You allow me to be an artist, something I have dreamt about being since I was a little girl.
So grateful to you all…. speaking of which, don’t forget to enter the give away for December. There are only a few days left.

There is something about this poise that I love. I have painted it before and called it Waiting.

He is watching her. She pretends not to notice but holds her breath in anticipation as she attempts to look back over her raised shoulder to catch a glimpse of him watching her.

She looks on
Not noticed
Sometimes we don’t like what we see when we go unnoticed
It is better to be noticed
