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!

Relaxing by Playing with Paint

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, creative journey, Faith and Hope with tags , , , on July 10, 2015 by lori landis art

This summer has been a blessing even with some minor physical problems.  It caused me to really listen to the Holy Spirit and be quiet.  I am content more so than I’ve ever been.  I’m playing with paints and the images are coming out so differently than the plainly abstract that I usually do.   I don’t question it  I’m just playing with paint and not questioning it.  Aspen trees I just love so here are 2.  They range in price.  Aspen Leaves 16x 16_edited-1 Aspen Love 12x 12_edited-2

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?

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.

What’s Fear Got to Do with It?

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, art and living, Art filled Thoughts, creative journey, Faith and Hope, Journey, Spiritual journey, Zen Painting on January 29, 2014 by lori landis art

Fear is like a mole going deep inside you without being aware of it.  So what does fear have to do with the present and future of my life?

I can worry and and get stressed out and it then affects every part of my life including my health.   There have been lots of changes going on where my studio is located,  mostly good but some fear is there too.   Where there is fear there is doubt and it is catching.  You have to be on guard so it doesn’t affect you.  The way that I work on it is to trust God and know that God has a best plan in my life.   I got really tired when I had an event that I worked with others on and it left me open to doubt about everything.   It then affected my health.  Not a way to trust. 

I chose to look to God and release fear worry and doubt.  It makes life so much easier!!

A Beginning of A New Chapter

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, art and living, Art filled Thoughts, creative journey, Faith and Hope, Journey, Spiritual journey, Zen Painting on January 2, 2014 by lori landis art

Here it is January 2, 2014 and a new chapter in this journey taken.   It’s exciting to look forward to all the possibilities that are in the future.  After midnight of the 1st, I sat and thought of what I would like to see happen this year God willing.   I’m not a goal oriented person but putting my thoughts on paper gives me a clarity to what I really would like to achieve.   It tells me what steps to take or if it really something that I would like to do.   Some things I really need help on like computer organization or writing a book.   The possibilities are enormous  and I’m grateful to what I have going on but also the mystery of the unknown.  How about you?  What is your new chapter?
