Lift off! How I feel every morning with my first bong hit & pray it works as fast as can be.
I have been smoking/consuming what's called 'Grape Escape' and I feel outstanding.. out of this world. Thank God & my Grower... who is now on Instagram btw:
Dynamic Garden Design. Kindly show him some love as he has me & my medicine the past decade.
Spaced out- no.. creative & focused yes.
This little bud is just the explorer' - the 'mars rover' of buds for a different painting. I wondered how to put him in space suit, wonder no more. Is this cannabis causing me to think about aliens- no, it's the program - Ancient Aliens, I find it rather fascinating and do believe, simply because of all the unexplained technology/art/culture/architecture from the past. Tasks accomplished THEN we still can not accomplish today without advanced machinery. Alone in Universe, I don't think so.
I believe as with all medications from time to time our bodies need a jolt- a switch up from from our regular routine. How wonderful we are able to accomplish this with the switch of a plant strain- unlike medications that take literally months - just to get off of- in order to try another. I am loving this switch up. Painting till 2a.m. most night back a it a 6/7 a.m. yes, I nap in the afternoon- I prefer to say recharge- and sometimes I don't nap - I think of ideas to paint. I am grateful from my daily grape escapes.
Dream of other worlds! Let your imagination explore! You might come up with a little bud in a space suit - you might come up with a new cookie recipe! Inspired by cannabis & love- we will not fail.
I am painting bears. Love in every stroke.
I painted this little guy/girl/both too...
Only in the darkness can you see the stars.
~Martin Luther King Jr.
To sit and paint and get lost in each stroke of fur... thank God.
I am reminded I was created to create. All else can wait.
No opinions matter. No rush. No deadline. No $ pressure...
I can't escape these starry nights, thankfully they help with all the grey days.
1:30 a.m. & I think... 'I'll just sketch quick...' 2 hours later.
Another bear & fox is born.
Do what you love. I have no clue what I'll do with them, I was asked to sell one, not at the moment.
Give your favourite NUG a HUG today! If you can.
I feel incredibly helpless with this American election, we can't vote.
Canadians can only sit and watch in amusement, astonishment & horror as it unfolds.
Who would want to vote for either? Talk about a rock and a hard place? Yikes.
It does have me thinking about my American friends.
It's all I can do - send love to you... as I paint with TLC & THC.
What will all this mean for cannabis?
Viable business or Violent criminals?
What does this mean for America?
Not being able to govern events, I govern myself.

Peace, Love and Good thoughts… prayers coming your way.
The King of the Jungle is complete!
The little kitty purrs peacefully as she meditates, knowing her King has her back.. Kings.
See it as 3 cats of the jungle if you wish, it's meant to make you smile, that's all.
The meaning for me is beyond words. Countless brushstrokes, thoughts, ideas.
As soon as it is framed in the snuggery it goes, where I will see it every day. 41:10
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way
-- things that I had no words for.

Happy Thanks Giving Weekend Canada!
This is the biggest painting I've worked on in a long time, it feels good, my arm a little sore today. The idea is, it is mine to hang in a new place... remember what I was feeling & thinking while painting it and ENJOY it.
I enjoy painting it so much, I went to bed with my sketchbook, numbering where I wanted to apply 'what and the colors'. The sky has 40 large white hearts painting in it- only Storm and I saw them. It's all that matters.
I'm intentionaly painting love with every stroke!
It feels fantastic.
I've read some interesting facts about the beautiful bluejay, the meaning of when 'it visits.' I'm still mesmerized on my bluejay visit I had -I can't wait to paint the eye.
Those sweet eyes looking at me calmly with trust. Reminding me to do the same.
Do what you love.
Only a few items of importance in the new nest.... ;)
I went to Scotland for a couple of hours and now I'm back at my desk! WHEW!!
Rob and I Skyped from Scotland & Canada (I got to squeeze in a quick hello to Ivan too!) - -this time in the Zen Kitty Cafe!! We toured from the entrance to Robs office, checked out the pool table, jellies/sweets, rolling papers and more! Rob showed me the Spa - I let out a sigh just thinking of a good massage and then we sat in the cafe and chatted - I have to say it was a nice time & a neat experience.
There is a wonderful feeling at the Zen kitty cafe, not just because I could sit and stare at my giant Logo on the wall- hee hee hee, but because I felt at peace, surrounded by warmth, murals and comfort. We also have in common Cannabis, if you are surrounded by it you talk about it, Scotland has it's issues - they are all slightly the same - Gov. wanting to control the amount of cannabis one uses and grows. A plant. Yet issues like human trafficking thrive.
The 'cannabus' was used to go on a tour! Rob shared few vids of his kids - he explained the 'tribe' mentality over there - I got it. It is different. I shared what I was currently working on & it was nice to hear he thinks 'I've only scratched the surface with my talent. He is a fan though, so I think he's a bit partial.
Each time we hang out a world apart- I am reminded it was because of cannabis the belief this plant saves lives & it brings people together who are meant to be together.
Just like mushrooms are the wiring under the surface.
I've made many good friends & contacts. I'm thankful and I'm making more.
I doubt it will be this year I visit Europe, I have other priorities now I have to focus on, Rob understands & encourages me happiness, that's what friends are for! It was funny when Bird started flying around and Rob tried to call him.. ? Poppy did not even seem to notice but Scruffy did -she looked at the screen and wagged her tail. 'ScruffyOneEye' is her new warrior name btw.
I spent the morning- drawing a special birthday card & cards in general out with the birds in the early morning sun- my favourite time to 'jot & sketch', I felt very inspired. There are some really positive things happening down in New Mexico with Cannabis from what I've been reading.. about time! More on that soon.
Ending on a positive note! I received a box of art supplies today! Woo Hoo! Thank YOU!
You know what that means - painting! That is what Im about to do NOW...
No drawings to share at the moment. Just an IG photo below of when my supplies arrived.
Listening to a Scottish artist Gerry Rafferty to get me in the drawing mood, I din't realize he was Scottish. What do you listen to when you create?
When away, I slept.
I did not paint... which is blowing my mind. 3 little sketches, the one I did finish- I learned what 'rain does to Gouache' my meditation frog (below) was washed away.. so was I.
Up with he birds- and the birds were AMAZING! I was in bird utopia!
Arrrrgh! I forgot to bring some peanuts.
From bed to the dock was my first stop each morning as the girls - Daisy & Poppy would need to pee. *thanks to Storm for leaving his dog with me. & I would sit and sip my tea.
I'd wander between the cottage and dock, in at 11 to nap... deck, dock, bed nap.. lol!
Really. I needed it bad. Holy cow.
I was instantly overtaken with the peace and exhaustion- physically & mentally, took hold and said SLEEP. Thankfully, where ever I went, Daisy lay 3 feet away, ever watching me & Poppy. I LOVE my dogs. I love all dogs. I was so relaxed I slept with all the windows and doors open on the hottest few days and absorbed the quiet. Satellite Tv- I turned on and thought REALLY!? REALLY Georgia!? It was in time for the line from Ghost Busters (* which I will watch @ my desk painting) "Do you have any Hobbies?" - "I collect moulds, fungus and spores." It cracked me up, lol - that is Storm. He is anxious for the fall foray season. ;) I could NOT stay awake the first couple of days and hardly ate.
My body was screaming and my mind called the shots. SLEEP
I even started to feel guilty- you're not painting... oh well, sit back & breath.
I thought about a few people in specific on my mind lately all the time.
I didn't shed a teaar- also hard for even me to believe - lol, I sat and chilled with Poppy & Daisy. We wandered, I caught a big frog and a tiny one, thew rocks and napped.
Now, I'm home for a bit & paint fumes drift up stairs, the kitchen, it'c coming.
Norm goes non-stop. Bird is happy I am home.
I tell you what... I feel stronger mentally & physically :
God has me on the path, I just have to keep walking.
I know what needs to be done, there is no confusion in my mind.
I know what I want & I will have it.
Focus on what I am here to do. Draw.
I am drawing - it was an overwhelming desire yesterday - to draw about police abuse in America. Why? SPEAK UP!! FOR EACH OTHER! We are ONE it should not be tolerated.
It's getting out of control, no wonder people are shooting cops- who does not think that?
Bring attention to it. Yes, there are great police officer out there but the evidence does not lie- thank God for cameras. More on it tomorrow.
Understand also- I have a few Americans I'm really fond of - hee hee, seriously, I think about them and it's heart breaking. I want to have a few acres and tell them come on up, put up a tent and hang out. This toon is born of love from my friends and I feel it does speak the truth.
Trump or Hillary? .. .Hillary.
A Thank YOU Universe & to my good friend Jim, I love that Guy & everyone knows it.
I was telling Storm what a wonderful friend he's been all these years, so many laughs.
For assisting in providing me with peace & always showing me love.
You know, as I do with everyone close to me at one time sooner or later it seems...
I put him to the test a few times & he has never left me. XOX Thank God.
xox Have Faith <><
What brings you peace?
It's painting of me & it's time I caught up.
I've had so much on my mind, I think since march.. only now do I feel 'things' starting to come clear, line up.. get ready for the universe to align- ready to shine.
No facebook this week, no instagram either.. it's time to paint.
A little PIN always.
Good things are happening! Change is in the air! I feel it in my heart with every beat.
Time to re align.. I am 're hanging' my office! I have some serious work ahead, I've recently been inspired by a Skype call with Ivan, his office is so neat! As in cool. As are the projects he is working on! How blessed I feel to have such good friends all around the world... and with Skype/internet - its as though they are in the next room. It sure helps keep a smile on my face. Pain or not!
I have a new assistant! Her name is Jessie and she is assisting with what ever- working, finding, hanging, sorting bouncing off ideas- you see, these two (Norm& Storm- hard to believe I know, lol) get tired of it- as would you, if it was you mom or wife of 24? 25 years.
I lost count. Jessie is 22, still in school, funny, quick and talented- and full of ideas of her own! I look forward to her next visit tomorrow, I plan on teaching her a little gauche.
It's wonderful to start to feel organized & see lighe at the end of the tooning tunnel.
I've 'international bud' to paint and much more- I'm designing a post card for the 'Cannabus' in Scotland for my friend Robert! As planned, if all goes well I will be visiting him (his family) this year and just the thought has me smiling!
Im going to consult with another friend in Germany - the same gentleman who -I watched his gauche lessons on youtube! I found him and BUGGED him on FB, lol , until he replied. he is very funny person in my opinion.
I'm creating something every day. A side line for today was a hat for my mom- some event she is attending.. below the photos, lol! I like to thank my wonderful patient 'hat model'!
I LOVE my son, he is so much fun.
Do what you love! Inspired by love you can not fail!
I'll be drawing for mini original when my IG account his 200 for anyone interested.
must follow to win. Georgia Toons. Put a smile on someone face with the price of a stamp.
I do it at least once a week. It's one thing I can do to brighten someone's day.
Georgia... On My Mind.
