The VERY beginning

Began a new painting today. It's not completely blocked in yet. She was, however, very persistant that I begin. "RELAX!, she said. Why don't more people simply relax. A wonderful way to do so, it to make yourself pretty, put on your nicest dress, pour yourself a drink, and go out into the garden alone for some quiet time. Evening is nice - nothing to get up and hurry to get done. Alone is the key. Ponder your life. Who are you? What do you really want? What wonderful small thing can you do for yourself tomorrow with absolutely no one else involved?" Hmmmmm ... perhaps not so easy to answer for those of you working, or with a family or both. "Once you begin to do this on a regular basis, she told me, your life will change, little by little." I believe that it would, because we would be honouring ourselves and some of us never take the time to do that. So, here is the very beginning ....


Thanks so much for the visit.  And a special thank you for all the very lovely comments on Lord Ganesh.  They were and are very much appreciated.  Nice and warm again here - I think the cold snap is over.  Back to the Sangria on ice.

“The most adventurous journey to embark on; is the journey to yourself, the most exciting thing to discover; is who you really are, the most treasured pieces that you can find; are all the pieces of you, the most special portrait you can recognize; is the portrait of your soul.”

Fantastic painting, love your relaxing lady and the cat on her lap! But I want weather suitable for sangria on ice, too, not snow and hail showers! Hugs, Valerie

Oooo... can't wait to see where this one goes... another wise woman with some very sage advice!

A kitten, no less. Now that is very different for you, and a member of your household is going to be very jealous. Yes, we all need to relax and enjoy life. Saying it is much easier than doing it.

Hugs,

Donna this is wonderful -- really pretty with great colors and style. I love the cat resting on her lap. It is not quite Sangria weather here - more like hot toddy!! Love your work Sugar!!
