Conversations with the Canvas

Posted in Journey of Art and living on July 28, 2008 by lori landis art

Whenever I paint on canvas, I’m having a conversation. What I mean is there is a connection with my spirit and whatever flows through me is from something bigger and deeper than myself. That is why many of my paintings have a lot going on underneath. I have painted over the canvases and left just a small bit of a painting from before and that is the deeper aspect of my spirit. Don’t know why and I don’t need to know why.
This Painting is called “Thoughts Abound” NFS


Where does the time go?

Posted in Journey of Art and living on July 19, 2008 by lori landis art

I think I’m doing okay then I look at my last blog and it’s been a week since I wrote anything.
Because of all my internal changes, my art is changing too, but to what? My work is getting lighter in feeling and tone though. The process is about trusting Spirit instead of my brain. Using both is fine but when I think too much about my art, I get bogged down.
Utilizing my time better is part of it too. There are days where I’m all over the place. I wait for the paint to dry so then I’m doing something else and I might not get to that painting for a long while. I might work on housecleaning or get into a book or get on the computer. So where does the time go?

Scurry & Worry No More

Posted in Journey of Art and living on July 11, 2008 by lori landis art

In the past, I thought if I had lots of exhibits to do, everything will change.
Scurrying & worrying was part of it. I’m done with that. Working through Spirit has changed my feelings. I can be open to new possibilities and outlets for my art but not be frantic to sell or have fear of failure or success. Letting the Spirit lead the way is much more relaxing and joyfilled. Are you relaxed about your career?
The painting is called Outward 36×12 $1800 acrylic on board.

Listening to MY Feelings

Posted in Journey of Art and living on July 3, 2008 by lori landis art

Sometimes it takes a kick in the butt to change. I’m healing through the help of God and listening to MY feelings. Trusting in the Spirit and responding in kind. It’s also moving me to paint more and work my business more but in the Spirit.
This painting is called Buddy. Don’t know why I call him that. I sure had fun with it.
