I've only myself to blame.
The things that upset me some days can seem so trivial - on the grand scale.
I must remind myself to focus.
Focus is painting. Peace is painting.
Do what you love and get lost in it. Let go and let God!
I am in such a Laughing Buddha mood! Jerry Kelly sent me a Laughing Buddha pendant!
It is beautiful -I look at it in amazement! The next thing I know, I realize I have such a smile across my face! I feel loved when I wear it (them) I know when I work on art for anyone I put TLC into it - as most artist do - so yes, I feel blessed and to turn LB into glass - for more to enjoy! It too puts a smile on my face! *It's nice to have my face hurt from smiling.
He also included a slice of his signature rose and a flower that is also in the pendant!
As an artist- I stare in awe! He draws as well in glass as I can on paper!
He has found his peace! Look where it got him! He will be on 'this bus' at The Grateful Glass Gathering, he is excited and I get why. He has been making glass for 20 years and IT became his love at a Grateful Dead concert as I understand. How it all started... all day every day.
I wore my pendant right away on hemp rope but I need to make a proper rope for it with a couple of beads. I hope you can't 'wear out' glass from fondling. lol
I'm considering a road trip to visiti Jerry - I'd love to see something made from start to finish.
NOW, I'm finishing a cartoon for tomorrow and starting a painting of edible mushrooms
on the forrest floor with some sails thrown in for good measure - so I might be away for a few days. ;)
Peace be with YOU.
Have Faith <><
