Estes Park – January 31, 2009

What are you doing May 2-3, 2009?

I’ll be in Estes Park, Colorado! I’m attending a workshop with other artists who are firing up their careers learning how to use email, websites and blogs effectively, to promote our art.
A No-Excuses Art-Marketing Seminar with Alyson B. Stanfield.

I can’t wait. I’ll be meeting up with my friend, Cydni, who lives in Colorado. We’ve rented a cabin with a fireplace and plan to really enjoy the trip!

This little shoe painting is a 2.5″ x 3.5″ watercolor.

Shoes and Such – January 31, 2009

Practice word therapy – serenity, urbanity, impeturbability, equanimity. Say those powerful, mind-healing words over to yourself every day. Let them recondition your stressful attitudes.

After the Ice Storm – January 30, 2009

Good Morning!

I’m back at work after 3 -1/2 days at home. If I had not
parked my jeep at the top of the driveway, I would
still be at home. I am not a big fan of ice storms!

Enthusiasm releases the drive to carry you over
obstacles and adds significance to all that you do.
It tones up your physical vitality and gives warmth
to all your personal relationships. When you
associate with enthusiasm long enough it grabs you
and takes over within you.

From the book – Positive Thinking Every Day
-Norman Vincent Peale

Have a great day!

You can make the mind give you
back anything you want, but remember
the mind can give back only what it
was first given. So fill your mind with
all peaceful experiences possible, then
make planned and deliberate excursions
to them in memory.
from the book – Positive Thinking Every Day
-Norman Vincent Peale
The little watercolor painting is 4″ x 6″. I zoomed in on the truck for you… it’s only 3/4″ x a little over an inch. The photo I did it from is from Desiree at WetCanvas.

Okay, I don’t know what I was thinking with this painting! It’s a 7″ x 10″ watercolor. I was experimenting with wax paper, salt, gauze, rice & patience! hahaha

The only certain means of success is to render more
and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.

Acts of Kindness – January 22, 2009

Helping others increases your feelings of self-worth and value in this
world. You are always needed, because there is always someone
who needs an act of kindness.

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.”

Inauguration Day – January 20, 2009

When people succeed, I am as happy for them as I would be for my own success. I congratulate others for putting their prosperity conciousness to work, and I am inspired by their success.
