The Matter of the Earth

The Matter of the Earth

If the matter of the earth can be reduced to the size of a pea (once the space between atoms is removed), perhaps we all are simply holograms. A place created to keep consciousness occupied…

30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day #31!

30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day #31!

OMG – I made it! I actually finished 30 small artworks in 30 days! I had to lay them all out on the floor next to each other to get the full impact of the project. I am happy and relieved at the same time. I never before put myself into the situation to conceive, […]

Daily Painting #30: Breathe

Daily Painting #30: Breathe

A long time ago I read somewhere that deep breathing and being stressed can’t occur at the same time. Every time I do it – it works. But most of the time I forget to breathe deeply, and my shallow breathing makes stress worse. Today I will remind myself to breathe deeply and freely.

Daily Painting #29: Inter Dependent

Daily Painting #29: Inter Dependent

Keeping the flow of giving and receiving open isn’t always easy. I have a tendency to want to know how to do everything, so I don’t have to ask for help. So, today I will focus on creating a healthy relationship, giving and being open to receive in equal measure.

Daily Painting #28: I Ask You Ask Me

Daily Painting #28: I Ask You Ask Me

No story telling today. No guesswork. If I am assuming why somebody did something – I am in trouble. Today I will simply ask.

Daily Painting #27: Remember Tomorrow

Daily Painting #27: Remember Tomorrow

I like this saying. It reminds me not to be petty, but to live for the bigger dreams. Sometimes I say to myself: I don’t want to watch movies, I want to create a life worth making a movie about. I mean, if memories are all we are left with in the end, I’d rather […]

Daily Painting #26: I See You

Daily Painting #26: I See You

Healing is not just about myself in a vacuum. Healing happens all the time in relations – in little moments at the oddest times. Smiling at someone or a kind word can completely turn around someone’s day. Today I will acknowledge someone by seeing them, not just on the outside, but acknowledging them for their […]

Daily Painting #25: Grateful

Daily Painting #25: Grateful

Today I am grateful, not only for the big obvious things in life, like a relationship, job or car. Today I am grateful for all the little things I often breeze right by, like seeing this mountain goat on the side of the road. Today I will make it my mission to find as many […]

Daily Painting #24: Free

Daily Painting #24: Free

Whatever attitude I carry colors my world. Not only do I myself respond to it, but most other people do as well. If I am carrying negativity, trust me, someone will cut me off on the way to work, forget to show up to a meeting or make a snide comment. But if I claim […]

Daily Painting #23: Harmony

Daily Painting #23: Harmony

“There is harmony within me and around me.” I use this mantra a lot when I am feeling stressed or I am about to get sick. It helps me relax into the moment and get out of my worry state. Harmony is one of my main organizing principle. When I and all my relations are […]

Daily Painting #22: Brand New Me

Daily Painting #22: Brand New Me

Sometimes it helps me get through the day easier if I don’t allow any doubts. When I am able to entertain the idea that it’s impossible for me to fail, my actions are more decisive and I tend to like the results better.

Daily Painting #21: Elements

Daily Painting #21: Elements

I set my intention to create a piece about Inspiration. I think inspiration comes directly from the heart and somehow it always helps me be and stay healthy. Take for example this 30 in 30 project: I have had a lot of added work time and stress in my life and had to forgo things […]

Daily Painting #20: Create a Beautiful Day

Daily Painting #20: Create a Beautiful Day

I am going to create a beautiful day – even though sometimes I have to force myself to do that, because I’d much rather complain all day – it still seems to work…

Daily Painting #19: Sleep in Peace

Daily Painting #19: Sleep in Peace

I know I sleep a lot better when I am not worried, but I often times forget that there is a simple way to sidestep that worry. Handing my problems over to the infinite consciousness allows me to slow down and breathe, and often times puts those problems into a different perspective.
