Quotes

Today. Today I embrace my intuition.

This year started with a feeling that this was going to be a grand year, full of new exciting profitable projects and selling my studio home. It is November and I still am waiting for someone to buy this home. I am still waiting to sink my teeth into that new exciting project. I am still living in a place called limbo town. With each hour day and month I have grown more anxious and fearful that my timeline won’t be met. I wake every morning with hope seeking for an answer only to flop into the bed at night totally exhausted and stressed. My body aches from the stress and my mind is on its own continuous loop never disengaging making getting a good nights sleep not so possible. Yet today I got up thinking today is different. Today is different because it is today.

Today I stop waiting. Today I start doing. Today I start allowing. Today I stop controlling. Today is new and exciting. Today is the project I have searched for starts to give birth. Today when I fall into bed I will be tired not from stress and dreams unrealized but from working and creating in complete synergy of my life. No restrictions. Today I am co-creating my story.

No more thinking it through or is this being realistic? Being realistic and thinking it through got me to this point and well that did not work out to well for me. Today I embrace my intuition, my soul whispers, the little signs you only see when you stop pretending they are not there. Today my belief in the divine plan exists is my guide. Today it all begins, an epic journey, is today your today?

Quotes

Don’t let anything stop you from finding a solution.

Today my monitor for my computer went out. First it works, then it doesn’t. Since I am not a computer savvy person at all not in the least bit and usually end up making things worst I was very upset. This is my life and everything I need to do is on this stupid machine. Anxious annoyed and getting madder by the minute because I did not have the money right now to buy a new monitor. Not only that but have held off upgrading my system till after I moved.

Why?

I knew I had to relax and though I was upset the solution was probably right in front of my face, which it was.

Is it perfect, no. Is it keeping me working and doing what is necessary for my work, oh yes. I have an old relic of a computer that had pictures on it I had meant to copy and load to my newer computer but never got around to doing so. When I was finished I intended to give the old computer to an organization. It is amazing my tardiness is what saved me with this recent dilemma. The old monitor is what I am using now. Not the fabulous LED 22 inch monitor but an old relic and it is fine.

My little fabulous old monitor.

What I am reminded is first how our society is connected in ways we mostly never think twice about. All our work and everything needed to interact with each other is in a machine. When we cannot use it – withdrawal.  Secondly when hit with a problem relax. The problem isn’t going anywhere but the solution needs to be birthed into your consciousness. It took most of my day to see an answer. Just plug in the monitor and see if it works. Wow, it did.

Now the last thing I have to mention is how I view the sites I have changed. I wonder how others see my sites? Is this the way a tablet or laptop sees them?

This is how I see the world Trees Forests Nature and Sunshine.

Path to the Birches Oil on Canvas.

We get so locked into the way we view our own world is this the way everyone sees it? Each of us look through eyes but see differently and I for one love that concept. I know I see the world with the eyes of a slightly a skewed artistic world. Never feel I fit in and like that I don’t. In many ways I feel like the outdated monitor I am looking at right now, old discarded but still has lots of life and usefulness. This little monitor I see now with different eyes. Grateful it is still here to help me see a brighter world.

Don’t stop looking for the solution to a problem, the answer will come.

What is new at Between The Weeds? Pet portraits.

Have a portrait painted of your loved pet.

I am working on paintings for the studio. This is so exciting. I am now working on pet portraits. I am having a blast. The house smells with oil paints and the creative energy is soaring. I really can say I have never met an animal I did not like. Humans too many but dogs cats pigs sheep cows horses lion and tigers and bears, oh my, never ever.

Recently I had this amazing person pop into my life and instantly liked her. She lives with a menagerie of animals secretly I am jealous because I would love to live surrounded by furry feathered friends. I do draw a line with reptiles, especially snakes. She told me she had just lost her dog. The love she had for her dog beamed out from every pore and you could also feel the sadness. I was immediately touched and knew I would have to do something.

I had been frustrated with my shop and what I was doing with my art. I had toyed with the idea to start painting pet portraits again. The next time I saw this new found friend I mentioned about my interest in getting back to painting pets and would she like one in memory of her dog? One thing led to another and I am working on a portrait.

But to get the muscle exercised I worked first on a smaller portrait of a very special guy in my life. His name was Woody, or Sweet Woodruff his pedigree name. Woody was my spirit dog. He always could tell what I was thinking and there was not a day he did not give me all the love and joy he could muster.

portrait of Woody from photo

This is a 10 x 10 inch stretched canvas original oil painting I did from a photo of Woody. I chose to use blues purples highlighted with orange, yellow and light blue. To create the depth I used Paynes Gray with a touch of Umber and Ultramarine Blue. What gives this portrait the emotion and spirit is the eye (or eyes). I start with the eyes and work the rest in from there. The painting is finished with detailing around the eye (s) and highlights were needed.

This is a close up of the face.

detailing of the eye.

Would you like a portrait painted of you pet? Various sizes can be done in many mediums. I am now working on oil paintings and pricing is flexible depending on the subject. How it works is simple. You supply a favorite photo showing your animal and half of the agreed amount of painting. Add a brief story about your pet and I will paint a painting. About 3/4 through the painting I will send you a shot of the work in progress for your approval. Once OK’d I will add the detail work and make any adjustments. When it is finished and waiting to dry so I can varnish the painting you send the last payment. The painting is shipped to you ready to hang along with your photos (if you sent them by snail mail).

Finding answers within not outside of your self.

All these questions swirling in my head, looking at my life and being convinced it is all not going my way, not even a bit. Tired of getting up in the morning and by nights end glad to see the day ending. I have felt as if my life was wrong, in limbo, as if I stood just a second off of what reality should be. Caught in a Dr. Who scene or time warp but definitely disconnected from me. Re-connecting has been tricky. Slowly I am answering these questions because the answers are not outside of me, no one can give them to me, but within. Nothing has done this to me, only I have done this to me, which was the first answer. When I discovered all my thinking about my life is wrong than I can switch to all that I can think is right. Things I viewed not working are being illuminated with solutions.

It is horrible to be broken into pieces. The one thing I know, if you stick with it you will discover the answer within you and life will change. All the problems in the world are outside and you can allow them in or not. You can create your world the way you feel, emotionally and logically, your way. That is it. No big message or purpose to discover, think how light you feel now.

Realizing the more I thought my life, closer to the point, me was broken, the greater the strain and guilt I felt because inadvertently I created this life. Just as any habit is hard to break free from this type of thinking may be even more difficult to learn. Implementing daily I find is the only way to correct what has become a lifetime bad habit.

Vermont field of wildflowers and birch trees

The turning point was a dream. I talked with my wonderful now passed over Mom and she was standing in a field of wildflowers, the scent in the air was her Windsong perfume and there beside her were the boys, two dogs as they had so many times before, waiting for me to greet them. An intense feeling came over me of warmth and love, and in my head I could hear everything being said, like a computer being downloaded with info. Her eyes were a brilliant blue and her hair was wavy and blew in the breeze. I did not want to leave. There was a pop of light and I was back here and Tucker (my dog) snoring gently on the floor. It took several days to sort everything out.

She, my dogs, all those who have lived before me are here and if I would just stop getting in the way I can feel them around me. Since I have worked on grounding and connecting to the energy flows, angels and spirit guides, my energy is up and my creativity is sky rocketing. The biggest problem now is there is not enough of it, time.

Messages from spirit are important and we seem to make little of these signs saying it is in our heads or imagination. The dream was real, making the message important and given for a reason. Listen feel and believe what you feel in your heart because all is heard on the other side, which is one step over.

Something to ponder from my favorite beings Abraham Hicks.

 

You are magnificent beings, in the perfect place at the perfect time, unfolding perfectly, never getting it done, and never getting it wrong. Be more playful about all of it. “Today, no matter where I’m going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I’m doing it with — it is my dominant intent to look for that which I’m wanting to see. I’m wanting to find thoughts and words and actions that feel good while I’m finding them. For in doing so, I am, in the moment, practicing the art of allowing all that I’ve been telling the Universe I’m wanting, for all of the days of my existence

—Abraham

If the goal is joy, this pink peony oil painting is the answer.

The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork raise.  –Abraham Hicks

When I smell a peony my whole being elevates and wrapped in the sweet light aroma of a the flower, no problems disease troubles are present and I am filled with joy of being. When I painted this bloom I did so as a reminder of the joy. It stirs my senses and tugs at my heart and with that energy I can move forward and out of the vibration that has created discomfort. I can absolutely confirm this painting will not only get your attention but will help you move forward so your cork, too, raises.

Life is your canvas.

Today’s little inspirational thought for you to ponder.  Life is your canvas; no one can paint it but you. Each moment is an invitation to create yourself and the life you’ve imagined. Too often we wait for the “big” occasion or “just the right moment” to celebrate life. Your days are just waiting to be enriched with creative thought, joyful purpose, and inspired meaning.

Live in the fire of your dreams manifestation.

“This life has an infinite number of potentials for you; we live in a made to order Universe. Whatever you believe is possible for you and take consistent action upon is what becomes your reality. If you keep telling yourself that your dream isn’t possible, you will come to find that you are absolutely right.

But my friend, if you draw a line in the sand and tell the Universe that your dreams are a reality RIGHT NOW, and take action as if that were the case, you will come to find that you are absolutely right. The question is how long can you live in the fire of your dreams manifestation?

The price you have to pay to live your dream is facing your deepest darkest fear and the reward you receive from this courageous act is the realization that your fear was an illusion and that your dreams were always real.

So I ask you, my friend, are you willing to go there? Are you willing to sit in fire and sacrifice the comfort of your known world for the potential of something amazing, new and unknown? Don’t you want to find out what’s on the other side of your fear?

Living in fear is so last season, if you want to be happy and really live your dream you have to take a stand and just put yourself out there. You might fail, yes indeed – but, you might, you just might succeed too! Don’t you want to find out? Either way your life will never be the same… Can you handle it?”

– Jackson Kiddard

If you are not where you dream lives within you need to start living in the fire of your dreams manifestation.

Dreams are so much more than just thought. Dreams come from the fire burning within filled with feeling belief and courage. I know every single living being has a dream and it is real and inside you. Fan the embers and let the flame take you to the other side of doubt and fear.

Are you not worth the effort? Live your dream now this minute and watch as you are guided through the door. Do not stop just because it got hard. Keep going because it did.
