Busy, creative week coming on...

I have goals.  Do you?  I'm stepping up my art as a business.  It has long been on the back burner, and that has been good, but the time has come to become more focused on doing things I love in life.  I'd like to say: "What a great, meaningful day I had today," at the end of every day.  It is a choice, and choices can be scary sometimes, especially if they go against the grain of "what we SHOULD do."  The ego, bless its soul, tries to protect us from DANGER and whatever threatens has to be avoided at all cost!  
Time to bust out of prison!  Life is short, take a leap, don't be afraid.  I tell myself those things all the time, and the ego has gotten a bit more subdued. (Hallelujah!)  

To be honest, I barely ever lived the "safe" life, but those bills have to be paid, and they do get paid because we live in a sea of abundance.  Somehow we are fish that can't see the water for all the water...  The more risks we take, the more confident we get.  YES, I CAN DO IT!  Small risks, and then bigger ones as the confidence muscle is being built.


I finished another painting, this one in many layers of paints that I masked out around the buddha figure.  What is helpful in taking risks?  The little still voice within when we quiet down enough to listen.  Go for it!

Love this image ~ so bold and vibrant … yet expressing quiet calm.

I might say it's expressing aspects of the choices we have …
