Step by Step

Posted in Journey of Art and living on February 9, 2015 by lori landis art

I’ve never been one to go step by step.  I just plunge in and go go go,   but since my move I’m relishing the step by step process.   Why was I in such a hurry before?   My mind got in such a muddle and negative thoughts came rolling in.    If I get very tired THOSE  thoughts follow me again.   If I take things step by step I slow down, I do a better job and I can listen better to God.  Then peace flows like a river through my body mind and spirit.  I then am standing in Gratitude step by step.

Betwix and Between

Posted in Journey of Art and living on December 30, 2014 by lori landis art

The end of 2014 is here and I’m in betwix and between 2015 and new adventures!  The end of my era as a gallery owner after 3 years on Scottsdale Main St. came the end of October when my lease was done.  That day I was so tired that I tripped and broke my tailbone. It has been painful. My focus hasn’t been the art business because I have another move and am packing up boxes.

After two months of laying and sitting and really wondering where I was going, at 2am I got up and made the start of a map.  I decided to use the free form instead of bullet points.  This map going from the center with lines going out is my way of seeing what options I have.   Of course, this is a journey with many twists and turns.   I humbly ask for help.   Whether you know someone who could help me or you yourself please e-mail me.  I’m looking for corporate clients and even Stationary stores and even social media or newsletter person.

My artwork is in corporate collections on the east coast and been in galleries from coast to coast.  take a look at http://www.LandisArt.com

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?
