Aging Gracefully!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Wow, got a look at Susan Lucci today, did you know she is 64!? I am mean wow, she looks awesome! There seem to be so many women these days who seem to be aging with such grace and beauty, it is hard to believe. I can only walk away from those glances with the sincerest hopes, that I will be so lucky. I will say this, I know diet plays a part in it, and exercise, but I am beginning to believe there is more to it than that! The more I watch and see these women, i am convinced more and more it is about attitude than anything else. What I mean to say is that it seems the ones that look the best seem to be the most at peace with themselves, their lives and just full of love in their souls. There has to be something to that, the stressed out people we see on TV, really do show their age more, even when they have plastic surgery. Just a thought I wanted to share. I am really going to focus and bringing that peace and serenity into my life in a big way. I already do work everyday on being more loving in spirit, but I need to step it up a notch!

Got to make the best of the body and face I have! I do not mean it in a vain way, but there is something to be said about a healthy glow that goes far in others perception of who you are.  First impressions are al;ways on the way a person looks and carries themselves, and being business minded, if you want to make money, you have to look like you care about yourself as much as you do about your business. In this tight economy, if you want to stay in the game of business, you really have to look at how you are perceived.  This is not to say, you have to be twiggy, or that you should buy ridiculously expensive clothes, or even wear a ton of make up. It is to say, that no matter what you think you look like, maybe it would be good to get some one else to help you with what other people see. Just a note. I am going to look long and hard in the mirror today, see what I can do inexpensively to improve my impact on the world around me!

Lottery update, is that I have not won yet, or I would be paying someone to help me with my image, and getting my business out in a big way. Like a new gallery, with my name on it, and really looking hard into doing some really serious charity work and environmental work too! Hoping you are having a wonderful week, I am feeling very good these days. But for you and yours, I send my love and wishes, that today is the best day you have had so far! All my love as always, diana

Who’s That Girl?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, off I go to the land of art. Been a while really, not for lack of trying, just been trying to get to feeling better. Since the last flu bout, and other personal stuff, it just seems like I am more tired than usual. So, every night I go to bed determined to shake it off, and do some work, but before I know it, morning has arrived and got to do this and that, before I know it it is the afternoon, and I haven’t had a chance to do any artwork. today it appears is no different, except, I am dragging out my art tools, if I have to stare at them all day or not! I will push myself, maybe it is just about having been sick and not playing with my markers and paints, that has me out of focus. Anyway, once I leave this blog, it is off to work I go. With any luck artists’ block will not be an issue. Who knows, once I get going, I may just unclog the damn and the creative juices will overwhelm me, it won’t be the first time.

I feel like I do not recognize this new person, I am. It is good though, almost wish I could have figured it out sooner, maybe it is just age. It could be the new found interest in my soul too, or the new determination to get my art career going. It could be just the acceptance of my spiritual gifts, and my ability to give those a chance to grow as well. I look into the mirror and wonder who is this girl?  Truthfully, it doesn’t matter who she is, I have determined that I like her very much! She can stay as long as she likes, I welcome her. As it is, no ideas in my brain, but that does not mean a blank piece of paper or a blank canvas won’t inspire me. I am feeling much more at peace with myself no matter what. I am convincing myself, that because I worked so crazy for so long, my body just needs some rest to catch up. Since, I don’t feel depressed or sad, I actually feel good, happy, and just quiet inside, that is really new to me! It seems to work nicely though, it is a change, so used to my mind reeling, but now the quiet seems to feel like a warm blanket. It is good! Hoping you had a wonderful weekend, not matter where you call home. Wishing you lots of smiles and laughter, sending out my love to you as always, diana

New Adventures!

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

 

Good morning to all! Been super busy lately, so much going on and no time to relay it to anyone! The time has come for some simplification of my life and goals to make it all the more achievable. So , off I go to do my work and get myself a routine that will work for me. I have decided to backtrack to my original plan of focusing on online networking, and hopefully in the spring moving forward into trying out some other endeavors on my own. The possibilities are as follows, art shows, a farmers market or flea market. I will do my best in the next few weeks to check out these venues and see which one appeals to me the most. I hope that a little research will give me a good idea of which of these opportunities will suite my art career the best. If by chance it turns out to be multiple, I will start with the most promising and try to figure out a way to add to my schedule as needed and when possible.

I am sure you may be wondering, I did leave the gallery. It was a wonderful experience, but life has carried me away once again. So, for now I think it best to move forward on my own, that way I do not have to feel like I am letting some one else’s dream go down, when life takes a crazy left!

Lottery update, nothing yet. But, I do not lose hope, tomorrow is another day. I am determined to see it come true and anxiously await the moment it does! You know the old saying “All good things to those who wait!” So, like a good girl I am waiting.

The painting posted today is a new one I am going to load into my shops today. I hope you like it, it is quite colorful, and playful (like most of my art). It has a lot of purples in it, and personally I think it is very happy! Would love to hear your feedback on it, if you choose to share. Also, if you have any ideas on how to expand on this business or others, please feel free to drop a line or two. For me and all who read here, it is about expanding and growing our businesses. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, and many will be put into prectice, either by me or some one reading here. Don’t be shy!

Lots to do now. Got to get this painting listed and off to make some more art. got a busy season ahead. I am so excited and can’t wait to see how it all pans out. For now, it is about having as much art made as possible to increase my possibilities for success. Wish me luck and love! To you and yours, I send all my love and happy thoughts for a happy and plentiful day, as always, diana

Car Shopping Anyone?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, still staying busy. Worked at the gallery today, pretty quiet, made a couple of small sales, hoping for more this week for sure. Anyway, just a note to you all out there with online shops. The scammers are at it again. I got an e-mail from some one on my Zibbet store, he was inquiring about one of my paintings. He requested I send him a money request and from there it got crazy. The good news is I learned how to do that. I had never done a request for payment in Paypal, so I learned something that will most certainly come in handy in the future! Very cool, guess that is how people sell on Facebook and other such sites, good to know. Anyway, back to my buddy, he starts with how much he loves the painting. Then how he is a collector, and is a sailor. From there, it is how he is at sea, and if he sends me extra money, will I pay for the storage for this painting. I check out the address for shipping, it is UCLA, yeah, the university. Whatever, I took back the money request and sent him an e-mail declining his offer to purchase. So, just a note to be wary, they are up to getting money from every venue possible. Spread the word, and keep your heads clear.

As for the lottery, tonight is a drawing, and I am certain to be winning soon. So this evening, I spent going online and picking out the cars, yes plural, I am going to buy, and shopped for one for my youngest as well. The oldest child of mine I think is good for vehicles, she may need some down payment for a home or business. Anyway, the cars are picked, down to the colors and extras. Now it is time for me to decide where I want to live, coastal, I am pretty sure, and need to be close to a good gallery for me as well. If anyone has any pointers, would love to hear them. Give me an idea, where you think my art would do well. I mean it is selling here, and this is no big city! Would love to hear your thoughts!

Been working on some new art, hopefully this weekend while I am off, I can spend some time downloading everything to give you some more good art. Hoping your New Year is off to a great start. I think this is going to be a great year, for me for sure. I do hope it is even greater for you! Sending out my love to you all, diana
