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.
This has been a week of all kinds of shifts and adjustments. As many of you know I Periscope broadcast live stream as many people do with the influx of live streaming. All of my live steams were being saved on a third-party server as with many other people. Originally this was such a great idea since we could save our scopes on this server forever while we decide how to use them later for other opportunities.
Then the unthinkable happen, an email stating they were going to close the site down effective May 4, 2016. Talk about everyone going into “Olivia Pope” mode to see what could be done to rescues our scopes from being deleted forever from this third-party platform.
Katch.me has been nice enough to assist all of us in getting our scopes off their server before it closes forever by helping us move them either to our hard drive or YouTube.
As for now my scopes are downloaded to my hard drive and I am slowly moving them over to YouTube, thank goodness I have less that one hundred so I should have them all downloaded in a few weeks.
The lesson this has taught me as an artist is always be prepared to re-position yourself when one door closes. No one thought this would happen so every Virtual Assistant is gaining new clients because people who have three hundred or more scopes will have to have help moving them over to another space. Live stream is the future, and as it grows we all will have to adjust to many changes along the way.
We all will have to learn to re-position ourselves when we find ourselves in one of those “Olivia Pope” moments. Breath, step back and reset so we can continue to move forward and not become ship wrecked as the above oil painting on Canvas Panel.
Do you hear it…..the count down to finish 2015. To step into 2016 with new expectations about what you are doing with your art. To redefine where you are headed with your purpose. To get back on track ….do you hear the count down.
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.
Remember you are the painter of your canvas called your story………how are you finishing the canvas for 2015, because 2016 is a blank canvas……….

Tonight we went to the Winter Fest Tree Lighting Festival. This is the reality that Christmas is just around the corner and 2015 is almost out the door. Where did the year go.
We stayed long enough for the tree lighting and then left because it was cold. They even brought snow in for those who wanted to snow board.
Santa and Mrs Claus were there walking around greeting everyone, they had a group there called Heart and Soul line dancing who performed, there was a choir there singing Christmas Carols, and plenty of food.
All in all it was a good community event.
Be sure to follow us for more festivals, museums, and events. Like our page and leave a comment (we really do read them). Tune into our Periscope Art Scopes where we inspire the emerging artist with tips on Getting Your Work Seen………….
