Well thank you that read this and I hope you all have a blissfully great Monday!

My little dream painting! I was just painting with my daughter and this came rushing out of me. I'm starting to see when I stop controlling my talent and just let it flow it feels so much better.
This one I'm not done with but I'm loving where its going. I like the title "Crying Rainbow" but I have to see what else I'm going to do with it.
Now for the big news. My friend wants me to paint him a picture. Well, not just one but three that will be hung up to create one big picture. The ideas that I'm going with are out of my comfort zone but I'm really liking the challenge! I will be blogging more about this when I have something to show!
Thank you for reading!

I AM ENOUGH!!
In this moment do you feel enough, do have enough, do you want enough? For such an easy word it means so much.

I really loved my walk. It helped me open my mind and let go of a lot of stuff that has been dragging me down. I have started week two in the Artist's Way and I really like how its going so far. There is a lot of homework and writing but I never thought this would be easy. Its good for me too keeps me busy during the week. Well hope everyone had a great Monday. I leave you with a new affirmation I pick up "The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention."

I have also been enjoying being a kid. My daughters are great helpers with that!! My husband does it all the time just jumps in and plays with them like his a big kid too. I forget about fun and it is such a relief to just let it go. Let all the have tos and shoulds out the door and just enjoy yourself. Don't worry about all the grown up stuff and just have fun! I want to be a kid again!
Anyways here are the new creations!
Then next is an update of one that I couldn't decide what to call and really didn't know what else to do with but some how it pushed its way out with a lot of headaches and me almost throwing it away. We made up and everything is better! Its called "Shoot for a Star"
Its almost finished I really am amazed how much better I feel about it. I will be so relieved when I'm finished with this one.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. Hope you have a wonderful day and know how much you are loved. Its the hardest but most rewarding job in the world!

OK I'm back with a more up beat mood! Last Friday I was at the book store tiring to find some new reads! I'm lost without a book on my night stand. I flipped through tons of books. There was this one about lifting the vile on God and looking at the reasons why people believe in him. It was interesting but way too much scientific jargon. I love a good mystery or romance but nothing tickled my fancy so I wondered over to the self help books. Which I use go to first to see if there is any new books on co-dependence. I found this wonderful book called the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Its about finding a spiritual path to higher creativity. I think this is what I have been needing to deal with my spiritually lows. So far I love all the exercises in it! The morning pages are my favorite. I love how it says to treat your artist like a child and have fun with it. I take my artist too seriously. Like its this old retired man that only likes to smoke pipes and read old books! My child artist wants to dance, make a mess and sing out loud. I took a bubble bath last night and played with my kids bath toys while I bathed. It was so much fun! I need more fun in my life and if anything that is what this book has taught me so far.
If anyone has read this book then please let me know what you thought of it. I leave you with this for this week let your child artist play and have fun! Do something you would never do in your adult life ever! Like skip in the park or build a sandcastle on the beach or play in the bath like a kid! But you have to do it by yourself only you and your child artist no one else. Try it believe me you will what to make this a weekly thing!
Thanks for checking me out!

OK now that I got that off my chest back to me! I have been creating like crazy. My Creative Flow is gushing out of me.
As you can see my work space is a mess like always! The Tree of Life you see in the picture is my all time favorite painting I have done. I like the darkness to it but yet the glitter and glossy paint gives it the uplifting feeling too. I love mixing opposites together. Here is up close pic.
Now I have this other painting and I feel its not done yet. But I just don't know what else to do. I don't know what to call it either.
It needs something. I know it will hit me just when is the question. I would love some ideas on what I should title it. I was thinking "Let Within Flow" or "Let the Beauty In Out" What do you think? What should the title be?
I also finished a necklace which I can't decide to put it on my etsy shop or keep it. One of the reasons to keep it would be because my camera sucks and I can't get a good picture of it. I keep telling Eric I need a new one. His reply is "sell some art and you can buy one yourself!" His so cute!
I leave you with a favor. This week let all the people you love know how thankful you are to know them. This life is too short to hold grudges or be mad for long periods of time. Who knows what tomorrow brings!
Thank you for reading

On my Friday, which is the best day off the week because I can do me all day long! Love it! I went to CoDA like I always do and then I went to surprise Carmen at the Art & Wine Promenade at Nancy's Vieux Carré. It was so much fun and her art looked so awesome.
It was such a nice night out. The weather was wonderful and people were danceing all over the place. I think the wine tasting that was going on help with that. It felt good to go there and support my friend. I'm so happy for you, Carmen!
Here is some of her beautiful creations! The pictures don't do them justice. When you see them in person you just want to touch it with all the texture there is. Very Cool!

I love the thick wire I got for making jewelery. Have a great idea for a necklace. The beads and shells are for a necklace I'm making for a co-worker of my husbands. I love the circles...I'm thinking earrings or a bracelet no maybe I could put them on canvas and paint.......see the creativity is leaking out of my pores!!
I also found this earrings that are so cool!! I want to get some sheet metal and punch a design out of it and make some charms or who knows? I am so inspired with this design. It calls to me.
TARA, TARA, TARA!!!
I will defintly be showing my creations as they flow out of my artistic vision and become masterpicece for me to share with the world. Please stay tuned!!

All art is on my etsy for sell!
Enjoying the serenity of being in the moment.
Letting the sweet calmness coat the skin and warm the soul.
Looking to the future with truth telling eyes and a hope filled heart.
Only going a half a step at a time but learning how to steadily get balance.
Focusing on the positive of this journey.
Not letting the negative slip in and tear it all down.
Trying to let the artist within show all its wondrous creativity.
