Resting and Waiting

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Journey of Art and living, Spiritual journey on November 18, 2014 by lori landis art

Closing the gallery took a lot out of me including my broken tailbone.  It’s been 3 weeks and a very slow recovery.  But I don’t mind because I know God has something wonderful ahead for me.   When I have pain I’m not able  to try to “figure” anything out but to rest in my mind body and spirit.   So in the next few weeks I’ll be working and improving my website.   Maybe next week I’ll go to my storage unit and straighten things out.

My artwork is still available and if you need a commission let me know.   I’m going to enjoy and have a feast of life.  Hopefully you feel that with my paintings.  Go to http://www.LandisArt.com or e-mail me at:

MOVING ON AND CLOSING GALLERY

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona with tags , , , , , , , on October 22, 2014 by lori landis art

It’s Amazing that I’ve had my gallery for three full years. But times are a changing and me too. God has directed me to move on for new vistas. Closing is a lot of work but it is cleansing at the same time. I have been releasing a lot of stuff. Right now I’ll be showing my art in a storage facility and painting in my garage until God show me where to go next. I’m so relived not to have to be open. Now I’ll have time for updating my website

The journey continues with your belief and faith in God and yourself. With all the external chatter out there of negativity, you have to have the strength and boldness to move forward.
If I didn’t have my faith in the Holy Spirit I would be defeated before I start. Life is always going to hand you lemons but together with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit you can have peace for whatever comes your way. Leave the bad behind and focus on the good.

Developing Relationships

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, color, creative journey, Faith and Hope on August 7, 2014 by lori landis art

It seems that as we get more into the technologic age we don’t really develop relationships with humans but only with the computer and internet. It’s sad.
Have you noticed that your power on facebook is dwindling. You are not reaching all that are on your list. It’s like pushing a noodle up a hill.
Stagnation is rearing it’s nasty head. Where are we really learning or growing in friendship? Are we developing more and more face to face relationships?
Are we fooling ourselves? Wake up and realize that we are losing touch and ask yourself is this what I want?

Trying Too Hard?

Posted in Journey of Art and living, Spiritual journey on July 7, 2014 by lori landis art

As I pursue my goals sometimes I get in my own way by trying too hard.   The intense feeling blocks me from thinking great thoughts.  I get confused because I’m not listening to the Holy Spirit.  So I take a deep breath and slow my mind.  Peace is that place I can achieve when I pace my thoughts and think what does God want me to do.  It relieves the intensity and now I can relax and move on.  I really don’t have to try too hard just trust the answer is there.

Ups and Downs in Life

Posted in Journey, Journey of Art and living with tags on June 11, 2014 by lori landis art

Working through the ups and downs in life can sometimes take a toll.  But  if you have peace in God  that seesaw becomes joyful with twists and turns and great surprises.  I was watching this morning a program about mentoring young adult artists and the various arts they are participating in and heard something I haven’t heard in a long time.  It was the song  “The Impossible Dream”.  It brought me to tears.  What a surprise!!! The words were so moving about creating.

Looking at my art I can look with new eyes.  I’ve been called to make the best art I can make without thinking about sales but just about my connection with all humanity and love!!  Yes, I can make art with great love. There will be trials to strengthen me but the ups and downs will  level out with that love and peace.  This painting is called “An Uncommitted Day”.

Left Behind in the Tech World

Posted in Art filled Thoughts, creative journey with tags , on May 26, 2014 by lori landis art

It seems that there is so much going on in the tech world and I’m not keeping up.  I’ve tried various avenues yet I don’t know the geek language enough anymore

to move me forward.  But I do have God  and the Holy Spirit to guide me.  So no whining please.  I’ll just have peace and not get frustrated.
