A Stone Girl Dancing

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
***, pebbles...gravel.
A stone girl is dancing...that's what I woke up with on my mind.
A stone girl dancing.
Recently I had an opportunity to pack up my life into another series of brown boxes.
I say opportunity because even though moving is never easy in the best of situations...this one in particular was emotionally charged and risky financially.
So...that's not what I was thinking particular...what I was thinking about was my rock collection.
(which come to think of it needs to be moved again...that will require the dolly and Mate Man, hhmmm)
I collect a few things...books are my number one OCD, but there are rocks too. (And books about rocks, aaaiiiee sometimes it would just be better on the old back if I collected cotton balls or navel fluff)
I have this little thing...I pick up a rock in just about every place I spend any time...sometimes I pick something up because I remember to do it, to mark an event or a moment or place. Some the best ones have been picked up without all, it's a quirk from childhood. I have this one mini bolder (mate man's words because he has to pick it up and move it around) of rose quartz, it was collected on a baking hot summer day in the early 90's.
At a time when broke wasn't even a good description of my situation at the time...and we got invited (Oldest child and I) to join a family vacation of a friend of mine...and we said "hell Yes!" well I did anyway (oldest was only 4 or 5 at the time, but a plucky kind of for just about anything) Anyway we went rock hunting...that was the trip, walking around in very old growth forests all day looking for crystals laying on the ground or by creeks. As they raced, full and fat from the thaw through the heavy green mist of the trees
and the burn your ass to a crisp meadows and plains we crossed.
We looked at wildlife and hiked and slept and did it again for 3-4 days. It was great. I came home with a ton of stuff.
( really it was a lot of crystal and cool rocks and wood)
I never actually mined into any earth just looking around and finding the coolest stuff laying around. Anyway one of the things that I ended up with was this mini bolder of rose is about 18 pounds...but still...we had hiked for 3 days...we had to hike out too...and I insisted that I had to have it, and I carried, rolled, and eventually made a little sled for it...but against all odds...I managed to get it home, the whole time everyone was picking on me and giving me grief for being hardheaded. (this was good natured and funny)
It sits right by the front door...some of the small ones that I have kept
(Note: a rock collection is only successful as a long term thing if you are good at editing) sit along the windowsills in the house.
The thing is this...I have gravel from the Tampa International Airport and a couple of shells from the remind me of times in Florida...and this little polished stone that I keep in a silver box from the first time I took Oldest child to see the Pacific Coast.
A lump of petrified redwood from that camping trip, a little black river rock from I have no idea but I like the shape of it, geodes that we have not cracked open to see if they hold magic inside, and coral from a trip I took as a child to Indian Shores beach. A few from Mississippi, Utah, Colorado, get the idea.
Tales of personal conquest, joy, being immersed in the natural world, moments too precious for pictures to capture...and times to forget for peace of mind.
I carry the rocks around rather than pictures and movies
( I have a fair amount of those too) because of the weight of them. They are solid little masses that explain things much better than images ever could.
For me at least...
I think I get it...
Somewhere a Stone girl is dancing...
What in your most recent past has jogged something internal...profound even...what was your latest "Ah-Ha!" moment?
I'd love to know.
Ahhhhh, I feel so much better now that is on the outside of my brain...
clarity for a Saturday to figure where do I want Mate Man to put the box of rocks this time, and a handy philosophical reason and answer to the question that will come when I make my request..." why do you need to keep all these rocks again?"
I rock.
Nice huh?
Have a good day,

Above work in's coming along. I still have lots of ideas about where this is going, and that's fine and fun for now. I am remaining unattached to the end result and letting go of my resistance to my own eternal flow.
Name of this work: (play on the word History)
' Her-story: It was written all over her face'
24" X 30"
Gallery wrapped

Quote for today:

In order to move our self image higher on the spectrum of performance, we must specifically attack our self-talking and our self-thinking.

By using constructive imagination - the eye of faith - we can change our self image.

Constructive imagination consists of three parts.

Verbal: The words we say to ourselves and about ourselves.

Visual: What we see ourselves doing.

Emotional: What we feel about ourselves.

Specifically, what must we do?

We define the role we want to change, exactly how we want to change,

and then we have a written affirmation describing the change.

By repeating the affirmation we will find our constructive imagination . . .

our eye of faith . . . changing.

And, we are changing.

~Hyrum W. Smith


Do what needs to be done today.

Be brave enough to say No to the Rest

so you can be able to say Yes

to the Best.

Success ( in any form) comes from being able to survive failure...

and self-doubt...again, and again, and again....

and then being able to look at the next obstacle

in your path...

with a shit eating grin.

Give the world your best today...

just do it.

Blindly going where no man has gone before

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for today...
"A blind man inched his way along the busy street during the rush hour until he felt the curb with his foot. He paused until he sensed a person standing next to him, then he said: "May I accompany you across the street?" "Yes, certainly" came the reply from an elderly woman as she took his arm. The two persons walked safely across the street as cars and pedestrians whirled about them. When they came to the sidewalk on the other side of the street, the blind man turned to thank his escort, but before he could phrase his appreciation she said, "Thanks for the safe crossing. Being blind is made bearable because of people's kindness."
~ Unknown
Have a good day,

Control your destiny or someone else will!

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for today:
"By the time the child can draw more that scribble, by the age of four or five years, an already well-formed body of conceptual knowledge formulated in language dominates his memory and controls his graphic work. Drawings are graphic accounts of essentially verbal processes. As an essentially verbal education gains control, the child abandons his graphic efforts and relies almost entirely on words. Language has first spoilt drawing and then swallowed it up completely."
~Karl Buhler
So, the POD (one post down) people painting is filled in and dry enough to start the next phase. I am glad that I don't like it...because then I can just play and see what happens with no attachment to the end result. I like it when that happens.
I'll be very busy today with clients, and this new work...and trying to feel better...I am not sure why I am running fevers all the time of late but they are kicking my ass. Gotta go see the doctor I guess, and I hate that, with purple passion.
Whatever, I'm going to put that off for now.
Been stressing out...been too uptight...been a little depressed and missing my oldest son.
Things I can't control.
Don't have much else to say...except I will continue on and see what happens.
I can only control me...
and I have a lot of work to do, so I will do it with high expectations of myself
and see what happens.
I think I am just tired of being so sick for the last week and a half,
maybe that's it...I have the blues.
Later Taters,

New Work Started...Attack of the POD people

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
OK, so this is the start of a new's scary right now but she will shape up's the eyeless-ness that's freaking me out. I walked into the studio this morning and almost dropped my coffee because I forgot that I didn't get to work on her eyes yesterday...sheesh!
I will be adding the face elements today and working the tones in general...I plan to work the face over in the end with a story in picture form over her skin.
Her name is going to be...'Her-story: was written on her face'
or something like that.
good Monday morning all.
Here's the quote for the day...
hope you all have a good one.
The many meanings of "I Love You" "I love you" [is] a statement that can be expressed in so many varied ways.
It may be a stage song, repeated daily without any meaning, or a barely audible murmur, full of surrender.
Sometimes it means: I desire you or I want you sexually.
It may mean: I hope you love me or I hope that I will be able to love you.
Often it means: it may be that a love relationship can develop between us or even I hate you.
Often it is a wish for emotional exchange: I want your admiration in exchange for mine or I give my love in exchange for some passion or I want to feel cozy and at home with you or I admire some of your qualities.
A declaration of love is mostly a request: I desire you or I want you to gratify me, or I want your protection or I want to be intimate with you or I want to exploit your loveliness.
Sometimes it is the need for security and tenderness, for parental treatment.
It may mean: my self love goes out to you.
But it may also express submissiveness: please take me as I am, or I feel guilty about you, I want, through you, to correct the mistakes I have made in human relations.
It may be self-sacrifice and a masochistic wish for dependency.
However, it may also be a full affirmation of the other, taking the responsibility for mutual exchange of feelings.
It may be a weak feeling of friendliness, it may be the scarcely even whispered expression of ecstasy "I love you, "
- wish, desire, submission, conquest:
it is never the word itself that tells the real meaning here.
~Joost Meerloo
I love you.
Figure that out, and get back to me.

New Artwork Complete

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
New Work...
24" X 30"
Staple free sides
oils and mixed media
well...the pictures didn't want to turn out for me like I wanted but here it is.
I don't have a title for it yet. I used flat backed glass marbles, metallic powders, oil paint, skeleton leaves, and a photo I found somewhere along the way.
Here's the quote that inspired the work:
"Our roots grow upwards not downwards
that's why we sometimes feel
like our lives are upside down."
~Jena Griffiths
Let me know what you think...
Have a good one,

Art is running away without ever leaving home.

My unreality is chiefly this: I have never felt much like a human being. It's a splendid feeling.
~Margaret C. Anderson (1886 - 1973)
I have to go to work in a few minutes, but wanted to update real quick. I have pictures to share from the gallery show, and pictures to take (after the sun comes up) of my new painting. The Auctions are getting a few views but no bids yet (one post down) but it's all good. I have not gotten the web site reworked because of the day job consuming most of my time, and I have been sick all week (like uber sick). I did go to the gallery to meet with the high schoolers, and it was kind of a bust because they didn't have much time to spend, and they didn't ask any questions really...a few did and that was cool. I wish I could have done a project with them instead...that would have been really fun.
The boys are well, Mate Man is good...the dog still stinks and the cat is trying her skills at escaping the house every time a door opens.
Other than that....nothing much happening round these parts...
So...more from me later,
Have a good one all...and come back soon, I'll have more to say and share.
I'm off and running...a new white canvas on the easel calling my name...
yeah Baby...say my name!

New Art Auction are Live!

View My Auctions Items

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Just wanted everyone to know that I have started listing some of my work with auctions, I have three live actions going at the moment with more to be added soon. Hit the link above (or in my side bar) to see whats on sale, and bid if you are so moved.
I am excited by this new venture, and looking forward to seeing how it works out. There is vibrant (but not overly saturated) art buying community on Overstock and the fees are 60% less than that of Ebay.
Let's see what happens!
If all goes well, I will be closing my Etsy shop soon, and going back to live auctions as a selling format. I enjoy the auction format so much more, and I did a ton better in sales of artworks when I was a power seller at Ebay (100% positive feedback thank you very much)...but with their fees and the shear volume of artists, I was struggling to get I look forward to this new venue and seeing what it has to offer. A lot of art is being sold and at good prices over fingers crossed...we will see.
In other news I am busy with coaching clients today and I am re-working my personal web site to make it easier to navigate and find art. Big Job! So, I will talk to you all soon...till then have a great day.
Love to all,

Quote of the day

Quote of the day


In the dark colony of night, when I consider man's magnificent capacity for malice, madness, folly, envy, rage, and destructiveness, and I wonder whether we shall not end up as breakfast for newts and polyps, I seem to hear the muffled cries of all the words in all the books with covers closed.

~Leo Calvin Rosten


The day after...watching mass murder on CNN reported live and sensationalized.

I wonder where we are heading, what will become of our spirits,
what is lost in our souls?

I just wanted to check the news in the morning, while I attended to my daily workout...and was faced with murder unfolding.

It's a scary world, with sad people, and up to the minute reporting.

May the families of the wounded and dead find peace.

And may I remember to never watch the news again.

It just fucks up my head.

I am going to paint, in the noise, no outside distractions...I will paint out my understanding, my path for peace, my love, my pain.

I paint for the souls of the departed, and the crazy-ness of this world we live in.

May their souls rest in peace.
May the living find the strength to continue on and survive this tragedy.
It's just so God awful.
I had planed a whole different topic of writing today...but I just went where my heart took me instead...I'll try again tomorrow.

Share your love today.

My favorite artist...Sol Lewitt, dies at 78

Sol LeWitt, 78, an artist known for his dynamic wall paintings and as a founder of minimal and conceptual art styles, died April 8 in New York. He had complications from cancer.
Here is a good article about him in the Washington Post.
One of my all time favorites in art, living and philosophy. A master thinker, creator and keeping it simple...stupid.
Of all the modern artists, he has been an influence in my Landscape design and also in my art. I would say my largest influence to date.
I am sad to see him pass over, but glad that he no longer is in pain from his illness.
May you find peace and artistic nirvana...Rest in Peace...Sol.

Words of wisdom

BAD! Kitty Art Studio

Quotes that move me this morning...


"What I must do is all that concerns me, and not what people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is harder, because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to look after your own; but the great man is he who, in the midst of the crowd, keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."

~Ralph Waldo Emerson


The Art of Happiness There was never a time when so much official effort was being expended to produce happiness, and probably never a time when so little attention was paid by the individual to creating and personal qualities that make for it. What one misses most today is the evidence of widespread personal determination to develop a character that will, in itself, given any reasonable odds, make for happiness. Our whole emphasis is on the reform of living conditions, of increased wages, of controls on the economic structure-the government approach-and so little on man improving himself. The ingredients of happiness are so simple that they can be counted on one hand. Happiness comes from within, and rests most securely on simple goodness and clear conscience. Religion may not be essential to it, but no one ins known to have gained it without a philosophy resting on ethical principles. Selfishness is its enemy; to make another happy is to be happy one's self. It is quiet, seldom found for long in crowds, most easily won in moments of solitude and reflection. It cannot be bought; indeed, money has very little to do with it. No one is happy unless he is reasonably well satisfied with himself, so that the quest for tranquility must of necessity begin with self-examination. We shall not often be content with what we discover in this scrutiny. There is much to do, and so little done. Upon this searching self-analysis, however, depends the discovery of those qualities that make each man unique, and whose development alone can bring satisfaction. Of all those who have tried, down the ages, to outline a program for happiness, few have succeeded so well as William Henry Channing, chaplain of the House of Representatives in the middle of the last century: "To live content with small means; so seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy . . . to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to the stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never; in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common." It will be noted that no government can do this for you; you must do it for yourself.

~William S. Ogdon
Source: New York Times, Editorial Page, Dec. 30, 1945


Each person has an ideal, a hope, a dream of some sort which represents his soul. In the long light of eternity this seed of the future is all that matters! We must find this seed no matter how small it is; we must give to it the warmth of love, the light of understanding and the water of encouragement. We must learn to deal with people as they are - not as we wish them to be. We must study the moral values which shape our thinking, arouse our emotions and guide our conduct. We must get acquainted with our inner stream and find out what's going on in our heads and hearts. We must put an end to blind, instinctive, sensory thought and feeling. We must take time to be human.

~Colby Dorr Dam


What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneness, and say, "This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned-and you with it, dust of the dust!" Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, "Never have I heard anything more divine?"

~ Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)


Have a wonderful Sunday.

Just something interesting...

BAD! Kitty Art Studio


I cannot feel good about being a woman unless you feel bad about being a man. I cannot be proud of being black unless you are ashamed of being white. I cannot respect myself for being gay unless you are embarrassed that you are straight. Tolerance has been put by the boards; it is a stale and bitter thing and we will have none of it. Equality, likewise; is condescending at best and in truth intended to demean. If I am to achieve the inner harmony and self-respect that is my due, it will not suffice for you and I to be equals. No! Nothing less than superiority will make me happy. And to ensure that I make my point, I shall commend your libraries to the flames, rewrite your histories, purge your dictionaries, and arm the thought police with power to enforce political correctness in all speech and apprehension.

~Joseph R. Garber
Just something I thought was interesting...the Orwellian thought police...and the whole freedom of speech issue that's the hot topic of the moment here in the states.
I am working on the painting today, tending children and taking clients....
don't have much to say...seems I don't have anything to pull out of my magic hat...
so just have a good saturday,
one and all.

The day after...

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
The Morning after a night on the town.
(above) Spring flowers from the garden and some Japanese painted ferns...from last spring that is...I don't see any of this yet here! Aiiieee!
Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.
~Albert Camus
OK, well...last night we had the gallery opening. It was really quite nice, not many people but the ones that came were wonderful and talkative. This is the first show I have done where there were so many technical questions asked of me about my work. It was fun getting to explain that I didn't know the rules of art, so I just do what I do and when it's really fun to see what happens for me too.
Everyone that came into my space was visibly taken with my work, that was too much fun to watch, people would come into the room, and then you could see it on their, what's this? That really was great fun to see...because they all liked it, and they all wanted to talk to me and ask me questions about the was fun. I didn't make any sales, but I did get a lot of validation about what I do and that was really nice.
The photographer from the newspaper came and asked a bunch of questions and was super nice...and he took like a bazillion smile muscles started twitching at one point...LOL.
I met one of the high school art teachers and she asked me a metric ton of questions and then asked me if I would come back to the gallery next week and talk to her students about art and my mixed media work...I said yes of course...what a fun time that will be! I am excited about that.
I did get a new pair of super sexy black shoes to wear...OMG! My feet hurt so bad by the time we got home...but I was uber cute so who cares?
We also got to go without taking the boys with us, Mate Man found a super nice young woman at his work that agreed to watch the boys for us, and they had a good time too...and I got to be out with Mate Man...after dark...alone! Gasp!
So...that's the day after report.
I did get more work done on the new painting...and I have just a few more things to do before I call it quits on her...I really will be happy to move on to new things to be honest, I am sick of this work...which tells me I almost done.
I hope everyone has a good day's Friday! Woot!
Happy hour is only....10 hours away now....and counting. Tonight it's Margarita night...uuummm join me if you can. :)
Now go buy some art!

New Work updated pictures are taken in studio instead of outside, so a lot of the details are the bird seed and the birds are a lot brighter than in this picture, they are robins...and to me look really like little fat robins...I wish you could see it better...but you get the the background, trees and so forth...about ten hours left to go. Her face has not changed too much, still looks the same... a better picture of her facial features is the last one, just scroll down to see.
Let me know what you think.
Lots of love,

I did it...I started a Myspace page...

OK, so I went ahead and joined MySpace...I figured what the heck, I might even get to meet some locals to make friends with. (that would so rock...having friends of the fleshy variety) So if you are so inclined you can now find me on Myspace too:

check it out and add me if we are already blog buddies! OK enough about that.

In other news I am working with a much lower client load today which means I will be able to work on my new painting (pictured above) I have already painted in the birds and am going to dive in and work on her dress and my trees for the background. I have decided to not put in the school house and a lot of the other details because I like her face and want that to be the focus of the work. She has old eyes...seems she has seen quite a bit of the world and life...and I like that about her...she's...Worldly.

So I hope everyone has a great day, I'll post pictures of the work later on so stay tuned.

Over and out. BAD! Kitty has left the building.

New work started...something new from my brain pan, I've been looking at a lot of fast selling folk art and loving it, and well... I don't do folk art, but I got inspired from looking around and she is...I guess I am currently addicted to trying new things... this work will have a lot more details than what is currently going on, a small abstract school house in the background, a path going up behind her leading to the school house, some crazy lollipop trees, and something in her hands too...I am stuck on the colors for her dress and the birds. Well anyway...what what do you think? Any suggestions for the colors, or anything?

Picture by me!
The Art of Success . . . Success is ninety-nine percent mental attitude. It calls for love, joy, optimism, confidence, serenity, poise, faith, courage, cheerfulness, imagination, initiative, tolerance, honesty, humility, patience, and enthusiasm. . . . Success is having the courage to meet failure without being defeated. It is refusing to let present loss interfere with your long-range goal. . . . Success is relative and individual and personal. It is your answer to the problem of making your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years add up to a great life.
~Wilfred A. Peterson
A quick update...
OMG...I am so busy.
So...I have only turned out two paintings in two weeks...down from 4 or more in the same time's all good.
I got my first paycheck, and was able to pay some bills, buy food and still be able to spend a little on art supplies. (Whoooohooo!)
I am running like a chicken with it's head off, but it's all good.
The boys go back to school today, spring break is over...Woot!
I was able to get ahead of the house cleaning monster this weekend because the boys and Mate Man helped out...what a relief to not be living in a pig-sty anymore. UUUmmm, that's all...I will share the new work as it comes, the last one is just one post down...scroll baby! Let me know what you think, feedback is always welcome.
Oh, yeah...I am going to lower the prices a bit and have a Spring Sale...most everything at my Etsy shop will be marked check that out.
And the new Gallery show opening night is this week...wish me luck.
Gotta run and get ready for the day...another almost double booked day ahead with clients and a new work ready to start on the easel. I did write a post over at my other blog for today too check that out here.
Have a great day everyone,

Elusive Muse

BAD! Kitty Art Studio

Quote for the day


Painting is a blind man's profession.

He paints not what he sees,

but what he feels,

what he tells himself about what he has seen.

~Pablo Picasso


Today, a day off.

I am tired and troubled.

I woke with the muse calling me from

the darkened corner of my bedroom.

Hushed tones wrapped in gauze.

Feet hit the floor

images from dreams

fill my mind,

like dawn breaking on a clear

summer day.

Self speak is easy.

Translations are

lost in the waking world.

Desire caught in a sieve

like fresh shelled sweet peas

doting my landscape with

promises of a harvest to come.

I head into the work studio,

coffee steaming,

wind cold,

mind spinning.

White canvas startles me,

a story untold,

secrets lying in wait.

Derailing the fantasy life of

a woman who

thinks she knows

what she is doing here.

I paint my story like a

poet paints with words.

Blind assassins

hand me

a weapon

cross hairs

trained on

what I do not


that elusive

holy ghost.

I seek to find.


May your day be one of discovery.

Flow from the inside out

BAD! Kitty Art Studio with
news you can use for the day!

By: Marelin Thorton
"Swooping In On A Swell of Sales"
How do I attract a never-ending swell of sales?
"First of all you want to begin with allowing that there might not always be a never-ending swell of sales. Those that can do this are usually those who come to experience never-ending swells of sales. Why is this you might ask?
It is because they ask and let go, not expecting anything to come. And this is not the easiest thing to do if you NEED sales to survive. This is something that can get the best of you from attracting all you desire.
If you are dependent on sales, it can set up resistance that keeps them from coming. That is why so many new businesses' that start out with excitement and enthusiasm never make it. They are forced to go out of business because they can't "make it" happen.
When they try to make it happen under pressure, it flattens the whole business bubble.
If sales start to slow down or never seem to get started, it sets off an energetic attraction that closes down or pinches off the flow of more money.
Then they are forced to close the doors because of the pinch they are in, feeling that their energy force has been cut off.
I am making light of this, but sales cannot come when you are feeling weighed down.
You have to fill fulfilled, a swelling up of if you will, of what you want, rather than bursting your business bubble by paying attention to less sales than you would like.
The energy is never-ending, and so is the flow of money and sales.
If you look at a company like Coca-Cola, that was at one time just an idea in mind, you can surely see that there's no end in sight of sales. They have their sails wide open to receive, and the winds take them to one sale after another.
They literally pick up a swell of wind, and it carries them onto the next sale, easily and effortlessly. If you could see that you have a relationship with sales, and love the relationship you are in, the sales cannot help but thrive.
It is when you strive to pick up more sales, that you take the wind out of your sails.
You see things die down like the wind when sailing, and rather than know they will pick up again,you go down in your vibration ... And it can't carry you the distance you want to go.
Imagine being so busy that you have to hire someone to help out.
Be as busy as a beehive in business, within, and you will see lots of honey in the form of money! These are the questions you want to ask yourself.
Are you staying in the business as it is ... Or like it is in your new reality?
Are you taking yourself into a new reality so you can get there, or are you going there because that is where you were headed anyway, before you felt the need to drum up some business?
If you want to see a swell of sales, get full of yourself making sales. Imagine that you are swelling up to the point of popping you are so busy.
See a time when you say to yourself: I could sure use a break, because I AM on sales over load.
The more you can place yourself in a reality that takes you out and through where you are, the better.
Make it as much fun as possible all while making it believable.
For example: Sit at your desk, imagining speaking with someone on the phone that wants to get a discount on quantity.
Have a sales meeting with your future employees.
Or imagine for instance that you have outgrown your office.
You want to imagine things that will allow energy to give you a swell of never-ending sales.
The reality you want to be in must believed before you get there.
That is how you get there.
Do anything you can do to put yourself in the vibrational frequency that sets up conditions that bring change!
If you are seeing that things are as they are, the energy that creates all things cannot take you to any other place than right where you are!
So you can see why we would encourage you to play with the idea of what you would be doing in big business, because BIG business is definitely where never-ending swells of sales come from! You want to swoop into the reality that goes along with never-ending sales. And where you are is not that reality, so you want to shift the energy by taking the energy to a different place.
If you want something different, you have to be different, because nothing can come to you other than through you!
Swoop down upon your new reality when you might feel down about the reality you are living.
That will bring your feelings or spirits back up to speed with more sales. When you swoop down upon and into your new reality, get the feeling that this is where you are. That sends a message that brings more sales.
Now if you find that you are doing this swooping to get the sales you see you are without, then go back in and see that you are within that reality.
This is the reality you are in, within. You are not doing the swooping to get something because YOU ARE that something.
You see?
It is a slight shift of energy, but it only takes a little shift of energy to move things into a new reality ... Because it is so powerful! You want to get busy birthing your new reality so that you can bring forth new life.
Just because that is what you want! Not because you NEED the sales. If you can understand the difference in what was just said, it will make all the difference in your never-ending swell of sales reality.


Ready. Set. Go.

Two new works

New work...Birds of a feather...a work in progress...
24" X 36"

New Work Completed... Contemplation in Red
24" X 36"
These two paintings are what I did over the last three days. The Birds at the top are the one that I mentioned in my last post, the one I was not sure of...still not sure where it is going or what I am doing with it, but I will continue to work with it till it is done. Opinions anyone?
The bottom one is the one I spent all day on yesterday...Contemplation in Red...I feel like she is done, she is still drying and I have a few small touch up areas to do...but they will not change the overall appearance of the work.
Again...opinions anyone?
Hope you are all having a good Monday.
