Need I say more?
Follow me into the garden of love...
Chances are you have seen the photos of Murad Osmann on Instagram.
He is 1/2 of the famous couple, a photographer who is being led around the world by his girlfriend - now wife. The shots stunning - every corner of the world in all it's glory.
Her wardrobe is equally as impressive.
You can't help but be drawn into each possibility of adventure with them.
Last night my bears took over and asked me to follow them.
I'm glad I did... I needed an adventure , if only with my paint for a few hours.
A mental escape down the garden path.
Where would you go?
Who would you lead?
What would you do?
Follow me. Perhaps... I'll follow you.
Third Eye kiss. Try it!
You can even try it on your dog - I do, daily.
You kiss them on the forehead between the eyes. It's said to have special healing powers.
If I could kiss you and heal you I would.
Third eye center is situated between the eyebrows. It is generally dormant spiritual center but it’s activation gives you insight , intuition and connection to your higher centers. If you genuinely love someone and care for , Third eye kiss can be a great uplifting experience for both of you.
Kiss the center of the forehead between eyebrows but slightly up a little bit with a thought of compassion and genuine love for that person. It activates the pineal and pituitary glands of that person which lie underneath in this area . It will bring a sense of security and well being to the person. You have to try it with your friends and family members you love and care for. Healing power that it brings is immense. It’s really a divine touch. It has been mentioned in many ancient scriptures, but you don’t have to take their word for it. Do it when you find an opportunity . The more you do it, the more you will see results. Try and find out!
Sometimes when I'm painting, Storm visits me in my office - he will say 'hi, check out my work and kiss me on the head before he leaves ;) How fortunate am I.
I can't always physically kiss people- obviously, but it does not stop me from thinking about them, sending them love... and praying (truly) they feel better, blessed & loved.
All Miracles are inspired by love.
Who will you kiss better?
"The greatest happiness of life
is the conviction that we are loved;
loved for ourselves,
loved in spite of ourselves."

I put abundant amounts of love into these bears - I feel it radiating still from my pores today! I left the stars until this morning.. I wanted to wake up and continue the love I felt & carry it over. It has.
It might not appear but this was a couple of days of painting.
6 layers at times.
I have to wait in between layers while the paint dries. Gouache dries different then when applied. It's a tricky technique, instructing me in patience as I persevere.
Painting on black board also is a bit tricky, numerous times I think back to my classical animation training- thinking backwards- black first.. patience with cell painting, training for today.
Love in every stroke.. It occurred to me
'I wonder how many strokes are in these paintings?
lol Too many to count. Perfect.
In the Garden of Love & Medicine - also why they smile.
As you can see 'He is a little grey- so the cannabis helps his old bear bones.
Hee hee hee.
Have a creative day!
Paint yourself some love!!
All you need is love.
But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.
~Charles M. Schulz
& some *medicated chocolate. I like mine Dark!
A gentleman from 'TEXAS' sent me a message on instagram:
He would enjoy my work more - if I did not draw cannabis in it."
That's Nice... was my first thought.
I checked out his page, saw his little baby girl- so cute & replied to his message:
Cannabis is responsible for saving my sons life & I had no intentions of stopping,
it's how I educate. He unfollowed me.
Texas was my first clue he might 'unfollow.
What is with people- was I harming this fellow?
Why comment a negative remark on a strangers page, was mine the most upsetting post he saw that day? lol
I am not upset in anyway.
I painted my bears today with LOVE, thinking about it, feeling it, bringing it.
Smiling. I have tomorrows poem & bears in mind & yes, it's perfect, if I do say so myself. Sent to me (a positive message) by another on IG. Balance. lol
Many people will never UNDERSTAND until they are living with or dealing with something themselves before they can really comprehend the situation. It is that simple. I'm sure if he daughter was suffering he would try everything in his power to ease her pain. He seems like an o.k. guy, we've moved on. To each his own. Cause no HARM.
Be F*cking nice.
Please & Thank you.
Am I living to please others
or am I living to please God & Myself?
* if you don't believe in God, ask yourself: Am I living to please other or myself?
Others - forget it- it is impossible to please all.
God.. his love is unconditional.
I LOVE what I do! Every stroke - every leaf.
I can walk alone in the garden of Love.
Cannabis garden that is & I have friends with BIG GARDENS!! :)
Adios my Texan pal.
Love each other or give each other some chocolate.
Really.. share your chocolate.
Show a friend some love by sharing yours tomorrow - if you get any.
You will be bringing yourself MORE love.
I'll show you my TLC with another painting which will make you feel some love,
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
~ Lao Tzu
Love is... I have no flicking clue. I don't.
I feel like I'm not so sure what 'Love is' at all. I wonder at this stage in my life 'IF' I will ever know "love like that" again... & I wonder if is the twitch or is it me. Some days it becomes exhausting and I have to stop. Stop even thinking of love.
I'm not alone.
I 'think' I express my love many times only to have it not returned & even rejected - lol. Welcome to the world. We are all loved and rejected by someone at some point in our lives. My only advice there, is let go.. what is the point. Hanging onto someone who does not like/love you in not good for your care.- you are limiting yourself to the universe to find a love that desires & deserves.
To have someone 'special" is love - but there is so much more to love. Here is an interesting read on love. I enjoyed:
That 90-second conversation you had with the stranger this morning while walking your dog? If there was eye contact, a sense of connection, and mutual respect — that’s love. Whenever we exchange smiles or friendly gestures with strangers, or take a little extra time to have warm exchanges with people we see every day, those “micro-moments of positivity” change us at the biological level
Love is every where: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/love-is-everywhere.html
These bears come from 'no where'. They did not start out as love- I was feeling very doleful when I decided to "paint something!" No sketch and quite often NO idea on what I am going to draw. Slowly, I become immersed in it, I want to get the positioning just right, I imagine her smiling down into his face- I have to pretend in my mind to get a successful drawing. Soon I find myself smiling down at the painting. Do what you love.
I had to laugh out loud when painting this.. Storm walks in my office and asked me - "Are those bears doing it?" in the tone of- "are you painting porn?" LOL! I said - "They are hugging! & what if they are, two adult bears?" After he left my office I had a new appreciation from my bears and a giggle- clearly, I have been able to achieve expressing an emotion - I still do feel inside. Love.
If you are alone this Valentines day.. use your imagination. Daydream.
You will feel the love start to grow.. make it happen. Make love about that smile you share with a stranger.. forget 'who you are to love" and continue to do what you love.
& IF all else fails- THROW yourself into your work- mine happens to be drawing about love this month. Hahahaha
For the 50 shades fan..
I did not read the book but I've read some of the lines from the book on PIN.
Well we have SNOW and more snow.
It's been the kind the past few days that remains on the trees- every branch, it's stunning to wake up to such beauty - a blanket of snow - it makes me want to stay under the blankets some mornings. Poppy goes out to pee and runs back in- her extent of winter adventuring.
Once again- on these mornings - I'm up - listen to 'Biggy'- started my day- lol, stretch and smoke a BIG FAT JOINT - my bones ache with this snow, my wrists today need a little extra TLC & THC before I start to paint.. Thanks to cannabis I can.
Apparently in the city- they have no snow. frig. lol
I'm painting two bears in an embrace of LOVE in the garden, it's one of my best loved to date. It's been a challenge this month of painting 'love' so far... I'm not in love.
I don't feel 'loved'. Not like that. It is what is. Right? lol
I'm not alone.
You are not alone in being alone this valentine days. Remember that.
Millions do not have someone to celebrate 'V day with.
It really is just another day on the calendar.
If You love someone you'll send them a card any day, tell them ANY day.
As a cartoonist and artist -tuff luck butter cup- suck it up and do your job.
The fact that my bears show such love- I have in my heart.. is enough.
My bears tomorrow.
Georgia... On My Mind.
