Pursuit of What?

Posted in Acrylic abstract Paintings, Arizona, Culture, Spiritual journey with tags , , , , , on August 19, 2015 by lori landis art

Sometimes I get into my head and do too much thinking in pursuit of what?  Do you do that too?  It is a futile exercise.

Wondering what SHOULD I do next.  I need to be quiet and listen for the answer instead of trying to figure it out.  Letting the Holy Spirit guide me.   I’m much more willing to listen because with age hopefully comes wisdom. So what am I in pursuit of now?  I’ll let you know.  Let me know what you  are in pursuit for.

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:

Trying Too Hard?

Posted in Journey of Art and living, Spiritual journey on July 7, 2014 by lori landis art

As I pursue my goals sometimes I get in my own way by trying too hard.   The intense feeling blocks me from thinking great thoughts.  I get confused because I’m not listening to the Holy Spirit.  So I take a deep breath and slow my mind.  Peace is that place I can achieve when I pace my thoughts and think what does God want me to do.  It relieves the intensity and now I can relax and move on.  I really don’t have to try too hard just trust the answer is there.

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?

Chaos into Peace

Posted in Journey, Journey of Art and living, Spiritual journey, Studio/gallery, Zen Painting with tags , on November 11, 2013 by lori landis art

I don’t know about you but as I get older change is a little harder.  To have peace I have to embrace the change.  So after stomach churning and grumpiness I am now at peace. The chaos is ego driven because I’m in my comfort zone and I think the change will be bad for ME.  If I look at it another way and not my way the change is good.  I can grow into being a better person and expand my thinking.

Remember my blog 2 times ago about my bird?  Here is finally the finished painting.

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.
