Reach and Paint Your Dreams

This is a sketch in my sketch book. I do not seem to get any more than the sketch. I am reaching but it seems life is holding me down. Maybe it is me that is holding back instead of life holding me back.
Sometimes it is hard to know if it is our fear of failure or the fear of living our dreams.
I think if we keep trying that is the important thing. Except now I am not sure I am even trying.
OK so lets get on with other things.
I do hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving ,where it was with family or friends. We went out for lunch instead of cooking at home. Me and My brother took my Mom out to lunch. So my Mom enjoyed seeing my brother..He is the one that hung the moon. I am just the one that does everything else. LOL..

What's Not Here

I start out on this road, call it love or emptiness, I only know what's not here: resentment seeds, back-scratching greed, worrying about out come, fear of people. When a bird gets free, it doesn't go back for remnants left on on the bottom of the cage! Close by, I'm rain. Far off, a cloud of fire.
I seem restless, but I am deeply at ease. Branches tremble; the roots are still.
I am a universe in a handful of dirt, whole when totally demolished. Talk about choices does not apply to me. When intelligence considers options.
I am somewhere lost in the wind.....

Have a good week and Reach for what ever you want.

May you always dream in color.

A walk amongst the trees and the celebration of Trees and Thanksgiving

Today I took a walk and just enjoyed the trees and some shared their secrets by letting me look inside and seeing the sky.

Some spoke of creation and what it means to use your imagination and look beyond the decay and see beauty.
Some did a little dance and swayed to the silent music.

Some stand so tall and regal because he says he can reach the sky.
I hope you enjoyed the walk with me today with the trees.
For tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I started today to be thankful to walk amongst the trees.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving..

Sketch book and cup of coffee at 3AM

Yes it was 3am when I woke up and I could not go back to sleep. So what else is there to do but put on the coffee and sit in your favorite spot and sketch. Waiting for the sun to come up..
Where did she come from? I do not know. She was just waiting to for me to pick up my pencil and find her. We have so much in our head and heart that we can not imagine.. The sad thing is we use so little of all that is inside of us.
I have reading all your blogs and visiting a few new ones. There are so many wonderful artist out there in blog land. You can sit for hours just looking which I have been known to do....
It is usually late at night or early in the am..
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the day. I am going to sit here and finish my coffee and wait for the sun to rise.

Where did you come from?

Piece done on water color paper. It started as my piece of paper I clean my left over paint with and then as I finally cover the page . I looked and there they were just waiting for me to see them. So it's like where did you come from? Oh yes, from me. Using my imagination , to create to find the shape to just dream them up.. Oh art is so much fun .
The thing is I have so many small pieces of art I am going to have to finally take a few to the Antique Store and I am going to make a small art gallery and try to sale . So cross your fingers and toes that there will be a lot of art lovers of small pieces . That will buy them...LOL

My Mom has been on good behavior this week.. A couple of weeks ago she decided to play with matches and almost burned her studio down.. Not funny, scared me to tears and then just like a mother I had to scold her.. That is a very hard thing to do. Especially when I am the child and she is the parent. Then she has been sleep walking, it was some new medicine the doctor put her on and we had to take her off that. When she decided to sleep walk at night outside.
Life is a blast in this neighborhood...Don't you guys want to visit?
Have a good week and I hope life treats you kind.

May you always dream in color.

Silent and Listening

There is a time to be silent and just listen. Listen to the world around.

It is a beauteous evening, calm and free;
The holy time is quiet as a Nun
Breathless and adoration; the broad sun
Is sinking down in his tranquility;
The gentleness of heaven broods o'er the Sea;
Listen! the mighty being is awake,
And doth with his eternal motion make
A sound like thunder--everlastingly.
Dear Child! dear Girl! that walkest with me here,
If thous appear untouched by solemn thought,
Thy nature is not therefore less divine;
Thou liest in Abraham's bosom all the year,
And worship'st at the Temple's inner shrine,
God being with thee when we know it not.
William Wordsworth................
............. ..................
Have a wonderful weekend.
May you always dream in color,

Gentle Protector of Earth

Mixed Media on Canvas. Just a simple piece with a simple message. You must click on the piece to get a real good view...Thanks
Our earth needs protection and care. It was built with loving and gentle hands. So we should protect it the same..Yet really this piece is about the children of this earth. We all need to protect them. So much sadness and pain for so many children on this earth. Abuse is so wide spread and yet no one can seem to protect these children. So first of all those who pray, pray for our children. If those that can stand up and make a difference in a child's life then make that stand.
Sorry, I have not posted in such a long time but life has taken me in different path than art.
I have been quiet and silent for awhile and I am not sure if I am out of that place but we shall see.
I have missed everyone and I have not been able to read everyone's blogs and to search out for new ones.
I am trying to catch up.
Come on I need some new followers, where are you. Don't give up on me. Jump in and follow.
I have to be going on a new journey soon. So follow me:>

Thanks for stopping and Again I ask you in everyday things to think of our earth and it's Children.
