*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well!
I know many of us are still dealing with slow blogger, for publishing our comments! We have to hang in! It can only get better, right?? 😃

I have finished some paintings. Here are some progress pictures of the first one.
Finished painting, "Step Into Your Greatness" (8" x 10" linen canvas paper)
I also created some leggings and a flare dress from this design.

There is one more painting. I have to admit, out of all the baby crows I have painted, for me, this one has and shows a lot of feeling in it. It took me awhile to paint this one. I enjoyed creating all the different textures in her body. 
"Love Is The Foundation" (8" x 10" linen canvas paper)
I have a friend, who is becoming a father for the first time. So, I want to create a pair of baby crow leggings! Wish me luck. It's hard to get a baby crow looking right on leggings! LOL!

I will leave you with a picture of mom's Christmas Cactus. She is in full bloom. A late Christmas present!
Big Hugs 😊

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well!
For the past week and it's still going on, when I go to comment on your blogs, it is taking so long!! I keep pressing publish, and I guess "blogger" is thinking??? So, I keep pressing publish like 5-10 times, and then it finally does it! It's crazy!
Hopefully, this will change soon! Maybe it's a new year bug?? LOL!

I listened to all your advice and didn't paint over my last paintings. But, those were just the "start" of them and as you know, my paintings can change a lot from start to finish!

This is how you saw the "blue" one last time.
This is it completed.
"The Answers Are Always Within You" (10" x 10" canvas)
There is alot of texture in this one. When I first started to paint, I wanted everything smooth. Now, the more paint, the better! It just gives the finished piece, a totally different look. I hope you like it! The wings took me awhile to finish. There is like 5 different layers on them, for the design and colour.

You're going to have to wait for the next one. It isn't completed, yet!

Big Hugs 🙂

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all doing well!
We are out of the deep freeze for now, and into a January thaw. It's suppose to rain on Thursday!

I've been meditating! I was told, to really try to do it for an hour, because you'll go through different stages in that hour. So true! At first, all these thoughts come to you, and then things settle down and after that, what has happened to me, I've been getting some very powerful images! I find, for me right now, some major insights come after the meditation, through out the day. The more you get in touch with you, the more "you" starts talking to you!

I have to admit, this past friday, was very hard for me. Somethings, which I didn't even know I was holding within me, came out and I cried most of the day. It was such a good and powerful release. Already, I'm seeing so many things differently! It truly is amazing!

Even if you can't sit for an hour a day, but even a couple times a week, I would recommend it. It's not easy! But, after awhile, you truly want to do it.

I really have no new art to show you, but I did feel the need to paint what I was feeling. Here are some examples.
Not sure if I'm going to keep painting them, or paint over them.

Big Hugs😊
