What Do March Showers Bring?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

The old poem goes “April showers, bring May flowers”,  just wondering what they thought of March showers. Are they just a precursor to April showers? My silly thought since I got up this morning is that silly poem, and reminding myself it isn’t April yet so it does not apply. I love spring, it is all about new beginnings for me, and one of the most restless times of the year for me. It seems no matter what year, in the spring there are always changes and deliberate one for sure. It is worse than cabin fever, it is a driving need to do something new, even if it is a hair cut, color, clothes, to a move, career change, just something.

This year seems promising, a major move, new job, and hopefully new career in art too. It is very exciting, and almost more than my brain can handle all at once, but I did say almost. It will be a wonderful new year for me, of that I am sure. Grabbing something new in the spring feels like a renewal, like a start over button, every year I feel this intense need to fix anything that seemed to not fill it’s greater purpose the year before. I do not believe in stagnating, and every spring I can look at my life and see what has not been working since the last spring. Out with the old, in with the new seems to be a good statement for me in the springtime. If it hasn’t improved my life in a year, than what are the odds it will the next. One year is a pretty good marker on how well something is working for you. If even slight improvements are noticed, that deserves another year, but stagnating or sliding backwards is not part of my plan.

Okay, so next, no word on a big lottery win for me. However, to any one who did win some or a lot of money, just a quick “YAY!”. I am very happy for you, good luck next time to all of you who did not win, hoping your minute is coming as well!

As far as work goes working on a painting for my youngest, she will be arriving in less than 48 hours, so I have lots to do, just to get ready for her visit. Today, is all about finishing projects for her. I am very excited! Getting ready to make some banana bread today too, and made some chicken and dumplings last night. so, she will eat well when she is here, she is also requesting eggs in a window (some call then eggs in a basket). Stay safe sweetie, see you soon!

Today, as you may well know is Ash Wednesday. If you celebrate this as part of your religion, hoping you have a blessed day! If you do not, send some love to those who do, for the religious aspects of our lives are important to each and every one of us.  No matter who you are, I am hoping you have a wonderful day, a day full of love, life and the pursuit of happiness! Sending out my love to you all, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*



Happy New Year!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 3, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, it has been a crazy ride for me. The ending of the previous year brought a lot of great things for me. I have sold quite a few paintings in the last few weeks, so I have been busy filling the empty spaces on the wall of the gallery. When not working at the gallery, and bringing my work with me, I was working at home. But, the wall has made progress, and the spots I wanted filled are almost where I want them to be. It has been great! I am hoping this new year, and when season picks up again, in spring or summer, that sales go really well. Of course, that all depends on whether the gallery is still available or not. I am confident however, that even if that venue fails me, that many other doors will open, so I can further my success in this career. I am so happy with the turn of events that finally brought me here.

Now, as for the lottery, I had a few small takes at the end of the year, and am ready to bring in the final big check this year! I have not given up, and feel more hopeful than ever. Life is good, and I am planning on it being better. I fell success and wealth are only the beginning of my adventure for the rest of my life. So, I spend my time working hard on my art, at my sales, and on myself. For me, concentrating on losing cigarettes is one goal, and getting more fit is another. For my spirit self, it is all about becoming myself again. High spirited, happy, forgiving and kindness will become the forefront of all thoughts for me. It is a daily process, after spending so much time being sucked into the negative edges of life, it is time for the sun to shine again.

I have lots to do today as usual, but felt it was time to wish you all a wonderful new year, full of joy, hope and happiness, but mostly love! I do hope that no matter your religion, or ethnic background, that your holidays were bright, and full of gratitude and love for all your loved ones. I wish for you a year full of prosperity and new horizons. In short I wish nothing less for you than I wish for myself! Good will to all, and blessings abundant!

I am also posting some new artwork for you to see, still have not had time to download, new things. I really have been busy, but soon, I hope to be able to really download quite a few new items.  I do hope you enjoy it, you know, I changed my mind. I am going to post the latest sale on here for you to enjoy. It really is a fun painting, and a wonderful couple from Louisiana purchased it. so hoping you enjoy it as well. Sending out my love as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*
