Relax in the Positive

Posted in Journey of Art and living on October 23, 2008 by lori landis art


Rather than thinking in a mood of lack, I’m thinking in terms of abundance. What other way can I get through each day and produce my art. Moving forward is my intention and goal. As an artist but also a woman, wife, mother, grandmother, I can’t look any other way but up. When I try to figure what’s going on the WORLD by listening to the news and bad politics I could get really down. I’m ignoring all the pundits and focusing on being grateful for who I am and what I have. Thanks, God.

Don’t Panic, Have Faith

Posted in Journey of Art and living on October 15, 2008 by lori landis art


Why is everyone going off on a tailspin or running around like a chicken with his head cut off? I believe its because we’ve lost faith in MONEY. But isn’t that the point? Having faith in ourselves and God is what it is all about.
Galleries and artists are fearful so they think that lower prices will help. There are still people out there wanting to buy art but they shy away from those people that have fear in their hearts. I understand about the money situation but having the fear sucks. They bring down the other artists or galleries that are around them just to justify their fears and then it is a feeding frenzy. Lots of people do very well during a down swing why can’t you and I? If you stay away from naysayers and do some great thinking you might come up with a brilliant idea that puts you way up there in business.
The painting is called “Come Together” 6×9 acrylic on paper.

What Happened to the paperless Future?

Posted in Journey of Art and living on October 9, 2008 by lori landis art


Ten years ago when the computer was really getting into the vast amount of homes, it was said that we would have a paperless future. What a crock that was! It seems it produces more stuff than before. Things may have changed but not the paper. I’m a Virgo so I’m usually organized but I’ve been searching through my files (paper) and can’t find my health file where I keep track of when I get my mammogram. So goody-goody I’ll have to get one next week.
I’ve saved e-mails that are meaningful on the computer but I rarely go back to look at them so why do I save them? I guess we are all like that.
This Painting is a commission I did for Cigar King (an internet supplier) I also have it on my website at http://www.Landisart.com. I painted all the cigar rings that are his brands.
