Story Telling: What Happen Yesterday

Yesterday I woke up feeling OK but as the day progressed I came to realize how we as humans are programmed and mentally conditioned for these holidays. Even if you chose not to be involved there will always be someone who will wish you a “Happy” what ever the holiday is.

Why does everyone assume you spent time with family or friends. Why do they assume you attended a church service.

These holidays are man made and the only profit is retail sales with people feeling guilty so they buy gifts.

So as I asked the question “What happen yesterday” I respond with nothing happen it was just another day.

Thanks for following and supporting the blog. Join us on Periscope for #ArtistMotivationalMonday 11am PST.

2018 Manifest it, dont just talk about it.

Its here the count down for the new year has started. People are heading to different places to be ready for the celebration of the new year.  Have you ever thought that maybe you are the celebration.  You and your creative energy are a celebration every time you step into a room.

2017 has been a great year, and as we close it out with the last blog of the year we want to thank everyone for their support of this blog. You have followed, you have liked and shared and we are so grateful for your presents.

We are looking forward to what 2018 will manifest.

We had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of a new gallery. The Theshold Art Gallery is located in Redlands, California.  It is always so inspiring when someone makes their dream come true. We met some amazing artist Lynn Richards, Cindy Rinne and Aeron Brown.

It was an amazing night.

Good Things Continue To Happen

They say “good things come to those who wait” but I say “good things come to those who continue to press forward with their dreams until they manifest into reality”.

If you look to the right of the blog you will now see an “affiliate link” to where I get all my art supplies for the art you see on my blog and website.

I am so happy to be apart of this outstanding opportunity.

Just click the “affiliate link” and you will right at the store.

Many times as artist we get to the place where we feel stuck and it is at that place of being stuck you start to question whether or not you should even be doing this thing called art as a career or a hobby.

Its doing these lean times of temporary despair that we have to step back and reevaluate what we are doing.  Being an artist is not an easy path because it is a creative journey you are on instead of a career path.

Yes you want to make money at this but the real reason you are doing it is for the creative energy it gives you.  Your doing it for the love of being able to be creative and also make a profit from it.

There are a lot of artist of all kinds, the arena is full of creative souls trying to find where they fit into this arena of creative oceans. You paint, draw, take photography, create computer art, performance art, and yet you still wonder where you fit into this ocean of art.

The only thing I can tell you is to keep creating and you will find your place.  Remember your art is the journey of your soul as it keeps expanding to greater heights alone the way.

We Have 6 Days To Finish 2015

How are you finishing up 2015?  Are you finishing up weak or are you finishing up with a blast.  Are you excited about what you are going to accomplish to finish out this year of 2015.

After everything you have gone through this year the highs and the lows.  The happy times and sad times.  The shinning times and times that were dim….how are you going to finish out 2015.

Take the next six days to finish 2015 leaving your foot print as the mark of all the greatness you are….and step into the next chapter of your story full force.
