Paint Party Friday! Leaves And Nature

Linking up with Paint Party Friday! Check out all the lovely artists!


Happy Friday! Hope you all had a lovely week. I’ve been stressing a little this week. My father will be staying with me permanently and I’m going to be taking care of him. It’s a bit stressful because I have both my girls at home doing online learning so I hope things will flow nicely. Fingers crossed. I’m sure it will be fine but I’m stressed and worried. My father is old and Can’t see very well. I also don’t want to see him grow older. My heart is so sensitive at the moment. I will do the best I can for my family. That’s all I can do. Take it one day at a time. I pray for God to keep everyone safe and healthy at this point. Each moment is a gift.

I’m going to be honest and tell you that I’ve already watched two Christmas movies. 😁 I’ve been so stressed that the only thing that has helped is the good spirit of Christmas. I watched “Love the Coopers” and “Christmas with the Kranks”

In the beginning of the week I took the girls for a little walk behind our home and we picked some leaves.

I then had my girls use crayons and do leaf rubbings. They had a lot of fun. My 8 year old set this picture up for the photo. She likes to be creative.

My daughter is studying plants in class and she grew these carrots. I find it so amazing how you can grow things in your own kitchen. Isn’t it fantastic? The possibilities are endless when growing plants.

It’s so nice to go outdoors and play in nature. We need to do it more often. We are stuck indoors doing school and on digital things too much. I’m going to try to get them out more often.

I also made one watercolour painting this week.

I’ve been reading “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman. So far I love it.

I hope you had a lovely week and I also hope you have a fabulous weekend. Be safe and much love and positivity. Thank you so much for reading my post today and thank you for your lovely comments. Take good care.

Paint Party Friday! Moleskine Part 2

Hello and happy Friday my friends. I hope you are all well. How are you all feeling? I’m seeing the weather change very fast and the cold roll in. We’ve had rain and cool weather. I miss the way the sun hits all the autumn colours. I’ve been dedicating some time each day to paint in my book and I’ve tried not to be so uptight about things being “perfect” to just go with the flow more. Hope you are all well and thank you so much for all your love and comments. I’m linking up with Paint Party Friday and I hope you go check out all the other lovely artist as well. Have a beautiful Friday and a lovely weekend.

Happy Friday! August ART Paint Party Friday

I am linking up with the lovely group PAINT PARTY FRIDAY! Check out all the other beautiful artist!

This month I made a lot of art and I’ve never been happier. I make art to express my self and I love the feeling of painting and applying paint on canvas and paper. Each stroke is healing. Recently I’ve been letting go and I’ve been thinking so positive whilst making art with no fear or judgements on my self.

I made the following piece in total freedom and peace. I have this love for the moon. Since I was little I aways had the moon to look at and talk to as my friend. The moon has special energy and power. This piece has been gifted to a very dear friend of mine that has encouraged me to continue making art and to never stop. Thank you Cat Forsley.

It’s been so much fun and I’ve been really enjoying the process of making art. Each piece is like a self journey.

I would like to explore with creating collages more and print making.

I’m excited to try new things and even try to take an art class.

The process is so relaxing and calming in the mind and soul. I look forward to showing you more of my art in September.

I love to create

expressing the soul

helping the mind grow

art fills my heart and it overflows

Thank you Cat Forsley for helping me with the store name. I had a lovely outing last week with Cat. Nothing is better then getting together with a friend and having coffee. Especially a friend that is so kindhearted and inspiring.  I’m grateful for our friendship. Here is a fun video I made on my IG Stories. The video makes me smile so much. This is exactly how I feel. Super happy!

Each piece that I make is inspired by nature and I make it with passion and love!

Wasps all around me and I move swiftly.
Walking along the Toronto streets,
The kids are back in school and the city is busy and buzzing with noise and laughter.
Golden hues on the leaves,
Burnt orange and red.
Less sun and cool evenings.
Stores are decorated and filled with autumnal decorations.
Pumpkins and fresh apples, squash and turnips.
Spices on sale! Cardamom! Cinnamon and Star anise!
Chai latte? Yes please!
September is the month of change,
The top of the trees start to lose their green colour but the sun is still warm.
Birds and squirrels are out gathering and hiding nuts to prepare for the winter.
