Welcome March 2008

I have just taken this photo of the beautiful sunrise we just had here in beautiful Wanganui.

The colours are just amazing and it made the house a warm colour. What a way to start March!

I have just had a pretty amazing week!

I could tell you but I will wait to see if some of these things come to fruition.

Just about everything that happened this week were starting of great things to come. Lets just say there could be lots of change in the air for us!

I have had great dreams of travel and freedom this week.

My message for the day is: Forgive yourself Darling Child of God, for your harsh judgments of your reality!

I watched this wonderful DVD last week made by a talented man that I meet last week. It was great and with it being only 1 of 3 copies out there I felt were privileged. I pray that good things will come his way! It was a documentary in NZ and he captured moments of musicians and artists being natural and saying how they feel about issues. These issues were from what art is to death. Pretty wicked stuff!

I have had a week of people giving me thanks and appreciation of the things that I do for them. It's been really nice. I'm just me and do what feels right in my heart. I have never been one to think that money is the main focus in life so I do things just for the love of it and I think people really like it for a change. We got a pretty cool proposition because Shaughan fixed someones computer for free. It could help us out for the next 6 months so we are stoked!

I have nearly finished my catalogue for the Open Studios and hope to have it on my website this week. I'm so excited! The house is looking really good too! I haven't finished painting the bathroom yet for my private collection but I have a month so plenty of time. I normally have one day to hang the exhibition for the event so it has been nice to have a few months, it's going to rock! I have the coffee bus coming to park outside my house so people can bring up a coffee and take their time. I heard that today I was going to get my pile of brochures then I can start sending them out to all the people who want to come. Rere is doing a great job and everything has come together nicely! It totally is going to be the best one yet! She deserves a medal!

I set my computer up this week so I could record music and had a few sessions with Maka it was loads of fun! I just need to get the right cord for the mixer and we will be away laughing. I have been helping Maka over the past year and this week she brought in some music see had recorded for her last month but we couldn't do anything with it so I thought bugger it I have the programmes on my computer lets just do it ourselves. I have always wanted to make this space into a recording and music venue so it's nice that we are doing some now!

I still want to make my own music and even opened the programme last week but I still haven't had the right head space. It was magic doing it when I lived at the beach so hopefully we will live by the beach some time soon!

I love facebook as I have got to see so many people that I wouldn't have caught up with! I even have caught up with people from Carncot! Bloody amazing!

It's my Mum's 60th Birthday next Saturday, she's a beautiful lady, I hope I look and feel as good as she does at 60!

I have had 2 coffees now and feel like taking young Ralph for a walk so will get my bum in the shower.

Have a beautiful week x x x x x

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...

Releasing my MADNESS!

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

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 …
