Making time to make art

Face Exercise from class

Practice makes perfect, but i am not there yet!

I titled this “making time to make art” but maybe I should have called it,  “Take the time to make your art better”.  Yeah, that should have been the title but since I have already titled it, let me say what I have to say and move on.  No more being slow, tired or just plain ole’ overwhelmed.

I have decided to add times to my calendar so that I can get my practice time in for my Face 2 Face workshop.  Thank goodness I am not sitting in a “physical” class, boy would i be in trouble and asleep.  I worked 12 hours today…yep, 12 hours.  What has the world come to?  What have I come to?  Oh well, the day is almost over and there surely is no need to cry over spilled milk.

The dates I have chosen are Sunday, Tuesdays, Thursdays are my practice days (even thought I want to jump ahead and PAINT something).  Funny that I want to paint so badly when i have been resisting it for so long…lol  Wow, isn’t it amazing how our brain works is truly astounding!  Any type of workout gets  makes you want to work out more.    Now!  I said it…i have set a loose schedule (I say loose because when i feel it’s a chore, I will resist) …….Roz, resist no more!

Go forth..talk as gently to those pencils as you would hold them, relax your fingers and your mind, take your time as there is no rush, make art, rainbows and be here now…fully present…………most of all have FUN!  

Fairy sprinkling creativity dust!Grab that fairy dust and sprinkle it over the land!   


I’ll Paint You A Rainbow

Grace E. Easley

I’ll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
to brighten your heart when the gray shadows fall.
On a canvas of joy outlasting the years,
with a soft brush of sweetness to dry all your tears.
I’ll paint you a rainbow with colors of smiles
That glow with sincerity over the miles.
On a palette of words I will tenderly blend
Tones into treasures of sunlight and wind.I’ll paint you a rainbow that reaches so wide,
Your sights and your sorrows will vanish inside,
And deep in the center of each different hue,
A memory fashioned especially for you.
So lift up your eyes, for suspended above,
A rainbow designed by the fingers of love…

Finding balance

The past few weeks have been hectic, both at home and at work.  I have been working overtime, including today just to keep up with both of my worlds!  I still miss my daughter, still assisting a friend with her books on Autism that are about to be published..very soon, still trying to get our side business going, taking art classes, working, being a mother and a wife…… phew  ***what a mouthful***  Only after seeing it in writing do i now realize just how much I have on my plate.

This week, I will find balance….oh how I need those soy candles!  The Blue Moon is August 31st and will be a good time to set some new and powerful intentions.

I am enjoying the process of my Face2Face drawing workshop I just need to find specifice times each day for practice. 

Tomorrow is Monday…another day, another $$. 

One day at a time, sweet Jesus….thats all I am asking of you.  Lord for my sake, help me to take, one day at a time. ❤
