Art Is Food For The Soul!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

I am still working on the sunflower painting, hopefully I will be done today or tomorrow. It should be obvious that I did not make it to the art show today. My tooth is killing me again, so I am trying to heal up, in the hopes that I can avoid another bill, and save the tooth. We shall see. So many things on my mind right now, so many choices before me, and not clear answers  on which way to turn. Time is running out and choices will have to be made. The crazier it gets the more I immerse myself in my art. Both to keep myself calm and feel the happiness art brings me and to trigger those problem solving skills that are definitely right brain activities. Like art which is right brain, problem solving skills are also right brain. I can honestly say that my biggest obstacle is fear. I do not trust myself to make the right decision, it seems so many of my choices have led to more problems. I am tired now and am seeking relief. Unfortunately, that does not mean my struggles are over, wanting something and getting it are generally two different beasts!

At this point in my life caution is definitely the rule of the day. Impulsiveness, which has always been my way, is now retired, and that worries me as well. Because, the truth of it is that sometimes being impulsive can lead to good things. I feel like I am taking a huge exam, and this one could change my life forever, for good or ill. It is a timed test and time is running out, so a choice has to be made, and I do not know the right answer. Today I will paint, and hope, and pray that somehow in all of this I can find my answer, and that the answer I choose is the right one! Searching my soul, my heart and my mind, while I work to complete my newest artwork. I will work also to find the answer to the next path I choose in life. Wish me luck ( the good kind), I need it!

Time is ticking away at me, and I have lots to do before the sun sets for the day. The lottery jack pot is not mine as of yet, and I have been working on a thought to do some good in this world, while I can. I truly want to give back in some way, since money has ever been a hardship for me, I must find another way. A plan has been formulating in my mind for quite sometime, and I must fix on it and make it happen. As I work out the smaller details and move forward I will be sharing with you, it does have to do with charity, and there are several that are dear to my heart.  I believe my choices are at hand, and my wishes for my destiny in art are not about me, but to help others with the gift I have been given. Send me your good will, and I will work hard on making you proud to know me. That I can promise! Sending you all my love, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

I Don’t Know, Most Common Phrase!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 2, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Why is it the most common thing people and children like utter? I can only guess, that once a child uses it, so many of us never forget the affect of that statement. Whenever I hear it, I feel struck, for a moment before I can reply. It is usually more common than not that, when I ask something, the reason I am asking that particular person the question, is that I believe they have the answer. Funny, that child is smart enough to think that,, the reply will get them off the hook, even after they have not gotten away with it before. Even more surprising that some one can actually make it to adulthood and still think that works! Is it because we are taught innocent until proven guilty? Or, is that how that phrase came about? I mean, did some degenerate person, who successfully made it through law school decided that, if you can’t pin it on me, than I did not do it? I understand that should be a law, I am just confused, that even as adults we think we can even think that saying ” I don’t know!”, makes us free of any guilt. Tell what you do know and man up if it is you, or if you do know.

Why are we so afraid to face the consequences of our actions, or what another person will thin of us? Is our self esteem as a society, based solely on how some one else judges us? Some times this statement, can apply, if and only if you truly don’t know. If you know, fess up! I am a firm believer that every one appreciates a person who can be trusted to be honest,, even if it isn’t pretty. That no matter how stupid or deprived and action may be, that there is some kind of solace in the fact that the person responsible, takes responsibility for it. I, obviously cannot speak for everyone, but as a collective society, I can only hope that we haven’t sunk so far as to think lying and being irresponsible is a good thing! Oh well, just had to get that off my chest, just something I was wondering about.

I did not win the lottery this weekend, or I would be on vacation right now! I am still working on a drawing, should be done, by tomorrow, just a bunch of squares, but a lot of them, it is taking a minute. My weekend has been busy, friends calling and stopping by and such. Doing the usual housework, and working on art. Hoping you had a wonderful weekend, fun and safe for sure. Sending out my love to you, and lots of happy thoughts, even if you don’t know why, :). Just had to through that in there! Love, diana
