Wednesday 17th October

Little Rat has found herself a spot in the house. I sat on her the other day, it was dark and I totally didn't see her sitting here. She is a cutie! Ralph has been chasing her around and causing her a bit of stress. She used to live in the gallery and since she has moved up here he doesn't like it he gets totally jealous. It's funny when she is sitting on my knee he comes along and wackes her with his powerful tail. But she loves being up here as she gets to sleep in our bed sometimes.

I feel in love with the 300zx yesterday! I called around to Nessies and took her for a cruise and it got my blood pumping being a twin turbo it's really fast and the stereo system rocks. I had some mean beats pumping and I felt excited oh and it's sound is so horny. I tried talking Shaughan into keeping it and selling my car but he was already in full swing of selling it. BUGGER!
Nessie was working in her studio when I called around and was finishing off her paintings for her 2nd year for her fine art degree. I hadn't seen them before then and I was really impressed in the direction she has taken in her work, it made me inspired. Hopefully today I will sit down and start planning these 5 huge canvases I have. I even finished off all my sewing when I got home so I could pack the sewing machine away and get my desk back.

I popped into see Carolyn too and had a coffee and talked about our trip to Mangaweka to do the glass casting course which I'm excited about. She has and exhibition opening soon of her latest pieces in a gallery, I don't have all the details but will post them when she sends them through. She did email me this picture today of them hanging in the gallery. She had pulled her back muscle so I gave her some Reiki it was great for me because I haven't done any hands on healing for such a long time. Art takes over my life a lot of the time. Lots of spiritual people who are artists feel the same way.

I got an email from my friend reminding me about the yellow pages art awards you can vote just go to to vote for the peoples choice award.

My message for the day was: Give your motivations to God, and ask that they be purified. Say, "I give you my motivations and ask for your help in purifying them so that all my motives are aligned with truth and love."

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
