Colour is magic!

I love finding websites that are interesting. I have been on coloursofthesoul.com and am having loads of fun! I found out that the colour of the day for Tuesday is red. A day to get moving and put into action projects that you feel most passionately about, today will strengthen your resolve and increase your levels of confidence. Spend a minute focusing on the image to the right, take three deep and slow breathes in through your nose and out through your mouth to usher in the energy of confidence & passion.

You may ask why does each day of the week correspond to a different colour? It is because the Ancient esoteric schools that existed in Greece & Egypt assigned much significance to colour and its influence on our every day thoughts, feelings and actions. Their studies revealed that each day of the week was connected to a particular colour and on that day the colour attributes were stronger and more powerful. Each musical key links to a colour and corresponds to a chakra or energy centers of the body.

I did a little reading and it said "You are being urged to take a risk, you've pondered and thought about this long enough, break free from self limiting barriers."

Have a go for yourself...



The clip of the day is about book making, no wonder books where treated like gold back then



This week I watched 'Love is the Devil' a biography of British painter Francis Bacon that focuses on his relationship with his lover, George Dyer, a former small time crook, it was pretty horrible!



The card of the day is


I thought I would Google my life purpose and I found this page on how to find your life purpose stevepavlina.com which takes about 20 mins but I figured mine out in a second. You could also try:


15 Questions to Discover Your Life Purpose

Take out a few sheets of loose paper and a pen. Find a place where you will not be interrupted. Turn off your cell phone. Write the answers to each question down. Write the first thing that pops into your head. Write without editing. Use point form. It’s important to write out your answers rather than just thinking about them. Write quickly. Give yourself less than 60 seconds a question. Preferably less than 30 seconds.
Be honest. Nobody will read it. It’s important to write without editing. Enjoy the moment and smile as you write.

1. What makes you smile? (Activities, people, events, hobbies, projects, etc.)
2. What are your favorite things to do in the past? What about now?
3. What activities make you lose track of time?

7. What do people typically ask you for help in?
8. If you had to teach something, what would you teach?
9. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?
10. You are now 90 years old, sitting on a rocking chair outside your porch; you can feel the spring breeze gently brushing against your face. You are blissful and happy, and are pleased with the wonderful life you’ve been blessed with. Looking back at your life and all that you’ve achieved and acquired, all the relationships you’ve developed; what matters to you most? List them out.
11. What are your deepest values? Select 3 to 6 (See list of words to help you | list in pdf) and prioritize the words in order of importance to you.
12. What were some challenges, difficulties and hardships you’ve overcome or are in the process of overcoming? How did you do it?
13. What causes do you strongly believe in? Connect with?
14. If you could get a message across to a large group of people. Who would those people be? What would your message be?
15. Given your talents, passions and values. How could you use these resources to serve, to help, to contribute? ( to people, beings, causes, organization, environment, planet, etc.)

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.

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 …
