Don’t you love Spring, I do.

I love spring. The trees pushing their sap up through the trunk and out into their branches. Then seeing the buds start to open and the seeds dangle from the ends. The dirt thaws and the flower bulbs break through up into the sunlight. That always amazes me how these delicate flowers can sprout with so much energy exerted just to be magnificent flowers from a bulb? The wildflowers and garden flowers start in with their dance and spring is alive and the world is singing.

Large original watercolor and ink artwork of garden flowers and wildflowers in a detailed nature botanical floral painting. Find red poppy and pink coneflower, blue larkspur, purple butterfly bush, teasel, yellow wildflowers, thistle, daisies, and sweet pea. I even added a bee. There are so many wonderful detailed drawn and painted flowers in my garden flower medley illustration.

This painting just simply makes you feel good. Take in a breathe and smell the flowers.

Angry People. Stay calm and keep on walking.

Think of a peaceful place and let the anger go.

Let me share a story with you.

Yesterday an email hit my inbox from Etsy. It was for a custom order. I opened the email and found this young women ranting with profanity about how I had sent her a twitter feed and to stop it. Now I admit I don’t know how things work but I do know that this was her issue – not mine. I replied back explaining I had nothing to do with her feed being filled up with my etsy posts – 5 to be exact –  and she was not to contact shop owners through the custom order request. I said I was sorry this happened and wish her a better day. She then shot me another scathing email how she has reported me to twitter – hum don’t understand why – and that she is not the one responsible for this problem. I received 3 more irrational emails from this young lady. I did not reply because this would only feed her irrational rantings. Instead I sent an email to etsy about her with the emails she had sent and I blocked her from my twitter feed. Finally I sent her an email and told her what has happened thus ending her rants.

A few hours have passed, why did this person do this? I pondered that thought and believe that she was attracted in some way to my energy.

Do you think thoughts have energy?

Considering what is happening in my life and the way I was feeling about myself I can understand my part in this story. Though I did not see it in the beginning I have to thank this young women for showing me how my thinking had become negative and self doubting. I had opened the door and allowed that energy in – the door now shut I move on.

There is nothing wrong in protecting yourself against abusive people and reporting them when they act out. This is a consequence of their negative thinking, their thoughts or their mental energy. What is needed is taking responsibility for your part – unwanted yes – learning from this marvelous lesson and letting it go with light and love.

As an artist you are in contact with many different people and I try to accommodate my customers with respect. I give my full focus to the project at hand. Since I feel creative energy is infused into any creative work I am mindful of my thoughts while creating. How can you do your best work if you are at the mercy of negative people and negative thinking? I don’t see how you can. Look at the circumstances and then let the thoughts and people go. Then get back in the studio and create.

Have fun!
