Mandala LL-15 Night Session

Night Session – Mandala NFS

Do you find yourself restless?   Feeling uncomfortable?  Right now I do because I don’t feel comfortable where I’m at.  It’s like shedding of my skin and now renewing myself to the next level.  The question when it first starts is,  what is going on?  Why am I getting  kind of crabby and am disjointed in my thinking?  My thoughts go all over the place.  Why am I doing what I’m doing?  I wear myself out.  What is eating me?  Finally I realize what the matter is.  I’m GROWING!!

Going His Way

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, color, creative journey, Faith and Hope, Journey of Art and living on February 9, 2016 by lori landis art

So many times I want to “figure” out what to do next in my art career.  I’ve done that through the years and I’ve had some “success”.  The thing is, it isn’t as satisfying as following the path that God puts me on.  It maybe slow but it is the surer path to peace and joy.    I chose a tougher path because It helps me grow more in love and maturity.  I have met the most wonderful people on this path and I am very grateful because it isn’t about things but relationships. I don’t have to “figure” out just Go His Way.mandala-ll-3-making-sense

 

Joy to You and Me

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, color, creative journey, Faith and Hope, Journey of Art and living on December 17, 2015 by lori landis art

It’s amazing how the commercials are more joyful around this time of year.   It’s good will to all men and women no matter what.  That is what the relationship to God and Christ is all about.  It isn’t about religion but the walk we do each and every day. That understanding is Joy is My Strength_edited-2what we are called to do for others as we do for ourselves.  Yes the religious get caught up on the do’s and don’ts  but God wants us to see more in each individual.

We all have troubles that is the human quotient but how we handle those troubles with humility and  great attitude.  So as the Holy Spirit reminds me ” Get your big girl pants on” and tackle each day with joy the rest will make each much easier. So I’m sending joy to you and me!

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?

Artists go Gently

Unless it is about money,  artists go gently into the world seeking truth.   Believing in a higher calling, we use imagination and determination to work.  Striving for excellence to tell who we are as part of the human experience.  I now work in series to tell a story of growth.   One painting is part of a series called “Rooted in Love”.  You can see it on my website at http://www.LandisArt.com.  Sweet Carrots on series 3.

An Idea flies like the butterfly

With all that is going on in the world, it is easy to buy into the negativity.  We all have to set ourselves up for something better. Why not start each day with positive input?

That is truly transforming into loving yourself and others.

This painting is called “Released”.  It means released from negativity and into transformation.   It is featured in the Phoenix Home and Garden magazine August 2013.

 

Building on Hope

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, art and living, Art filled Thoughts, color, creative journey, Culture, Faith and Hope, Journey, Journey of Art and living, Spiritual journey, Zen Painting with tags on May 8, 2013 by lori landis art

Hope is a powerful word.  It’s the basis of dreams and goals.  If you can’t hope for the future and then build on it, you’ll be stuck in the same place year after year.   As an artist it’s more that that.

I get stuck in myriad of ways.  One is listening to the gurus of the art world that this way is better or that way is better instead of listening inwardly for the guidance of intuition or for me the Holy Spirit.  Feeling that others know what is the best for ME.   It’s a terrible trap.  The trap is applicable in every area in life, where I live, where I eat, what car I drive etc.   Listening inward and getting guidance gives me hope for each day and new adventure.  Hope springs eternal. I Can Speak For Myself 24x36 acrylic
