What's on my Easel

The Spin, acrylic, 4' x 4' original fine art by Jean Hart
This has been on my easel for awhile. I can't tell if it's done.
It's one of those paintings that you can't stop messing with. I love circles, and mandala's but I have a hard time getting them to be symmetric. I do everything free hand so there's a lot of back and forth work going on.
I like the modern design and the colors are muted which I like as well. It's a big canvas, 4' x 4' and I think I filled it just fine.
All comments are welcome on this one. Like I said I think this one is a work in progress.

What does it feel like to be the words you speak?
Words are so important. So why not speak straight to yourself so that your heart may hear you.
Can you just imagine a woman who refuses to diminish her life so others will feel better!!
When you speak to yourself or others speak and act with you heart. If you dare to speak or act in a negative way, pain will follow. But if you speak pure and clear happiness follows.
Today try to be mindful of being positive in all you say and do. Know that each word and thought has power to create a world you want to live in.
I think it's really fun to look for and take on affirmations I believe in them and I use them daily. Try to find one that fits you.

Be inspired, be safe, be you.

Monday's Question

Monday's Question???
How do you overcome that which prevents you from taking risks?
Monday's Question???

Yesterday I brought up all my courage and just did it! I registered and paid for two fine art workshops in acrylic. These workshop are far away from my home. I am planning on going by myself. This is huge for me. I almost never go anywhere alone. I always invite people to join me. But this time it was different. No one had time to go with me to the workshop in April and so it was either not go or go it alone. I put up many blocks telling myself why I could not go, it is amazing how we stand in our own way. After thinking things through I just said NO I want to go to this workshop. So JUST DO IT. I wrote the check and mailed it off so I could not change my mind~~~
What's your story.

Happy Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Day!!!
This is my birthday month!!
Well you know how it goes, the older you get your birthday starts taking on a life of its own and soon it's not just a day but a week....

 This is the card my daughter Sarah gave me:
You're wonderful. You're amazing. If anyone needs an example of an incredible woman, an extraordinary Mother..they only need to look at you. Happy Birthday to one amazing Mother.
(loved this)

These are the healing cards my son Matthew gave me, they are beautifully illustrated. They are perfect for me.

The Bear I found out is my Guardian Animal, and here is what he means.

This is my Guardian Animal

You are very aggressive, and very wise. You love to hang out by yourself, but you do have a lot of friends, you are a string soul! of course my next question was what is a "String Soul"?

   It seems that I am a Hunter Soul

you are driven and ambitious - totally self motivated to succeed.
Actively working to achieve what you want, you are skillful in many areas.
You are a natural predator with strong instincts ... and more than a little demanding.You are creative, energetic, and an extremely powerful force.
An outdoors person, you like animals and relate to them better than people.
You tend to have an explosive personality, but you also have a good sense of humor.
People sometimes see you as arrogant or a know it all.
You tend to be a bit of a loner, though you hate to be alone
Souls you are most compatible with: Seeker Soul and Peacemaker Soul
Here is the website if you too want to know what kind of soul you our.

Happy Birthday

It's my Birthday!!!!
So what age I'm I?? I took a test, a personality tests to find out. After answering many questions here is what it said:
You act 32
You are a thirty-something at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more! You're responsible, wise, and have enough experience to understand a lot of the world. You're at the point in your life where you understand yourself pretty well. You are figuring out what you want... and how to get it!
Yippee!!! I'm thirty-something again???
Surprise I like this answer.
Next set of questions was Who is my Gaurdian Animal?
The Bear
You are very aggressive, and very wise. You love to hang out by yourself, but you do have a lot of friends, you are a string soul!
of course my next question was what is a "String Soul"?
Oh one more thing, What do people see in me?
A happy go lucky girl
People can tell that you are an ambitious person. You strive for good things, never minding the bad. To most, you seem fearless, and are prepared for anything life throws at you. Though it is good to be positive, it is also important to acknowledge the negative in your life.
Well that's me in a nutshell.
How do they know these things?
Be happy, be inspired, be you,

Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday!!!
When I was very young I dreamed of living in a Pink House.
I dreamed that this house would be in paradise.
Go to fullsize image
I knew that I would be living among the most beautiful birds.
Go to fullsize image
the most graceful, The Pink Flamingo.
This pink little world offered me a place for me to express myself.
Go to fullsize image
I hope you too have found that very special place where you too can be PINK and express yourself.
Happy Pink Day

It's a new year and new resolutions, but lets not be too hard on ourselves. January should really be the first month of the new year that we start by
You must love yourself before you can love another. I know you have heard this before.
So instead of a deep breathing exercise and mediation I think I will start will just a few ways you can love yourself a little more this year.

I don't mean loving yourself in a selfish and egotistical manner, but more with gentle kind acts of care and love.
Because I know you already know that you are worth this care, here are a few ways you can show it to yourself.

1. Play. Laugh. Have Fun.
Not everything has to be so serious....
2. Go outside, even if it's cold. The cold air will
refresh you and the sun will provide Vitamin D.
3. Eat well. I mean really like the foods that are good
for you. Thank them and be grateful that you live in
a place where you can have fresh vegetables,
fruits and clean water.
4. Sleep well. Rest when you can. People who get
less than 8 hrs of sleep are more prone to illness.
5 Exercise, You knew it was coming. Just 20 mins a
day of something you enjoy.
Enjoy January. What you do this month will set in motion what you will do all year.
Be inspired, be safe, be love,

Haiku Chain

Thursday-Haiku chain day
With the new year starting I almost forgot where I was. I woke up this morning and looked at my calendar and saw that it was haiku day!!! Yippee!! It is my favorite day.
Along with this came a quote " Pursue only those things that capture your heart." It's an old Indian Saying.
I love haiku's, so needless to say on with the pursuit........
Feel free to add on, the syllables are 5,7,5 start yours with the last line of mine and so it goes.
Time Management.
Visioning the wolf,
nipping at my small heals,
pushing me forward.

Monday's Question

Monday's Question?
Will you be trying something new this year?
Each January, with the coming of the new year I look at the calendar and I try to plan something I have never done before.
This January, as it turns out each year is my Birthday!!
Yes one more trip around the sun, as Jimmy Buffet says.
I wanted to do something a little more fun and exciting this year.
I went on line and found that the band The Guess Who, are having a concert not far for where I live. So, without asking anyone I purchased tickets for my family to come with me to celebrate my birthday with a weekend trip and a concert. Something I have never done!!!! I'm very excited about this.
So what about you,Will you be trying something new this year?
