9 Night of the Goddess

                                                  9 Night of the Goddess!

From October 1st to October 9th is Navaratri . It is a time when the Goddess energy is
available for us in abundance. So I have been thinking about it and decided to start a
painting for each of the Goddesses. It is not a painting of what she look like but, of what I
feel the energy might look like, each Goddess has a color and some of them have the
same color so I will try to work with that!


                                  Create Super Intelligence, Gives Higher Education                                                                               Removes Bad Past Karma, Removes Future Obstacles


                                          Instantaneous manifestation, Good Fortunes,
                                                      Longevity and Prosperity

I am sitting here not quite knowing what to write. I have been absent for so long , doing other things and I do not know where to start. I do miss blogging and I am trying to get back into it. I have been resisting because so much time has passed and I feel like I am starting all over again.

I am wondering if anybody else is going thru something like this. Trying to keep up with Facebook Google account, my Art Expression page,  Twitter, Pinterest , taking the right picture to post in my website...etc...etc...I feel disconnected at times and prefer to just paint and not think about any of it. I feel overwhelmed, by all that I have to do to stay on top of everything.

I started in 2010 and was feeling confident in myself until I had a stroke and my world turned upside down. I am still struggling to come back...lol. My grand daughter was here yesterday and I was showing her some of my art journals , some of them , I had not looked at for years. So here I am again,  hoping this time I will be more consistent in posting !

Here a few of my recent paintings ! Hope you like them!

Blog problems !

Wow... I have not been able to connect or write into my blog since early March. It would always freeze on me. I am not sure what was the problem. A lot has happened since then. I will try and post my new paintings later. I am very happy that it is working now. I wonder if anybody else had the same problem ?

It has been a while...

I have been very busy with family members vacationing in Florida and I have enjoyed their company a great deal but my blog , painting , housework and business is suffering a bit because of it..oh la la
I have a lot journal pages and painting started but not finished. I am not sure why I find myself more busy now then when my children were growing up. I used to cook, clean the house , take care of the kids, sow , craft, volunteer at the school, go to all practice/games of baseball and hockey and take care of the books for the company . For some reason I THOUGHT that when my children would be adult,  I would have all this free time to myself to paint and journal.
I am more busy now than ever and I babysit my grand daughter 3 and sometimes 4 days a week.
The last time I wrote in this blog was in early February...
I have to laugh at myself , I am sure I am not alone but sometimes I put a lot of pressure on myself to try and be a super woman. I belong to all these groups in Facebook  ,  ning sites and I have all these on line workshops that I am doing and I am trying to keep up with , I teach clogging 4 nights a week and I have to learn new dances in between....but overhaul I am very happy every time I have a minute to paint or draw, every minutes count and at the end of the week/month I am sometime very surprise at what I have accomplish in a very short time.
If you are reading this , Have a great week !

and you could only use these colors.
I loved it!

Abstract Painting !

Here is what I am working on these days.
I always loved abstract painting, I used to paint them all the time
and lately I have been thinking how much I missed it.
There is a certain freedom in painting them
but for me also fear....
I find I work better when I do not try to think too much
I have to let go and it is not always easy....
So here is a few pieces I am working on now...

I called this piece Blue Jeans !
It is 12 x 12 canvas
Acrylic paint, ink, interference paint

This one I called Fusion
9 x12 canvas
Acrylic paint, Ink, Interference paint, Glitter
Mica Flakes

Glass Tiles pendants

I love Pinterest, there are so many tutorials and beautiful inspiration there.
I found a tutorial
 for Glass Tiles pendants.
I had a hard time finding the glass tiles but I did not order
on line because I did not want to wait.
I made a few and gave them as
.Christmas gifts.
Here are 4 of them.

I am sorry the picture is on it side
I could not fix it and could not take another one
because I gave them away.....
