If Disney grew cannabis... this is how it would be done.
Fantasia inspired, each bud would be lovingly dusted by individual THC Fairies glistening under the moonlight as they danced until each bud was delicately doused.
Boy oh boy it's cold in Canada... this cold effects my face to the point it is painful to eat & speak - napping is at an all time high. DRESS WARM & PLEASE keep your pets inside too! I understand the USA is expecting a cold spell which leads Donald to question "Global Warming,' sigh.

This weeks painting lessonon my Instagram account is on how to paint a sloth.
I'll start by giving you a hand on how to draw a sloth- it's SUPER easy - trace your open hand. TaDa.... Sloth outline already hanging upside down - now just paint it brown!
Brown with bits of green - add some leaves for fun - and your done. I guarnetee you each time you paint this sloth it will become easier & better with each try - it would make a sweet little valentine painting for someone : I'll hang around with you, anytime!
Im in a loving mood', love for the planet & all living creatures on it. Do you know what message is being repeated in: How to Change your mind - the book I'm reading...
'Love Conquers all.' It's got me on a mission to spread some love... I think I'll paint some cards!
Try to paint the sloth... It's easier than it looks. Paint it anycolor you wish, I think a purple sloth would be even cuter - treat yourself to some peaceful, relaxing art by paitning a sweet little sloth & then imgaine those great big gangaly arms wrapping around you for a hug!
It's what I'll imagine on this -23 blustery day, lots of Snow is expected to start - hot coco is on the stove & the paint is wet!

I realized last night why I was as angry as I was.. I'm sick of the mindset.
I'm frustrated with the continued STILL negative mindset surrounding cannabis - if you like it or not - IT is NOW legal in Canada - deal with it.
It's the mindset of so many (still brainwashed) who are so quick to judge cannabis consumers & many STILL have no issues with raising a glass or two as they do. It''s comments about 'too many drugs' in our community made by someone who sells alcohol -which is a serious problem in Georgina- just ask the police who publish impaired drivers photos.
It's being immersed in this 'cannabis community' for over 10years & understanding the true harms of cannabis - other peoples ignorance is the biggest harm still. It's knowing how many children how have been helped - had their pain eased from suffering from terrible conditions - all with cananbis - yet - I'm still surrounded by ignorance on a daily basics - I get it. I've also learned to say to people: please, when you have read this, this, this and this - let's have this conversation again - because I have spent the past 10 years plus learning about my son's & my medicine & I KNOW once people learn what I have - they would not be having the same conversation they are having today. They would know & understand. Most won't even attempt to read...
It's easier to remain ignorant- you're too busy, too tired, overworked to read a book on a topic your not really that interested in, it's easier to follow the pack- even if they too are uneducated - look at Trump fans.. It's easier to turn on the T.V & zone out.
I went to bed yesterday, cried, grumbled & read to occupy my mind & was successful.
I'm currently reading:How to change your mind . Perfect timing.
Instead of being angry I'll be grateful for the education & enlightenment. The Botany of Desire was a fascinating book - at a time when I NEEDED to learn about cannabis- it was perfect! It was such an enjoyable book - I've read it twice! This book is already blowing my mind & I am grateful for the education - me - and the many millions more - I hope.
This continued MINDSET- keeping cananbis illegal and seen as something bad/negative is wrong- borderline harassment - especially to those who still consider cannabis a MEDICINE which I do, it is shameful behaviour fuelled by politicians (equally uneducated) but I realized, I'm not the one who is stuck, refusing to be educated, open minded - refusing to grow - go ahead... it's not the direction I'll take. I'll continue on the path to enlightenment... the reason God has us all here - while the rest continue to judge on a topic they don't understand or care to.
Soon.. the truth can't be hidden forever & even the slowest of the slow will realize in time.
This past week I read (was educated on years ago) & have tried to teach- get you kids pets! It is now being advised by our health organization to introduce babies (children) to germs & allergens sooner to AVOID health complications later in life. As Storm was growing up I noticed the kids who were always sick or had allergies were kids who lived in immaculate homes with no pets - so clean you could eat off the floor - at the time I was envious - as my house has never been that clean- lol. Storm was given eggs, peanut butter and hairy beasts & countless dust bunnies from the moment he showed interest and as far as I'm aware he has no issues with allergies.
How to change your mind... Start with a book.
Then try a joint.

Cock a Doodle Doobie Dooooooo! Acrylic on Canvas.
Cocks in the cannabis field and POLITICAL BULLSHIT.
This painting represents a part of the current cannabis industry.
Run by a bunch of cocks all trying to be the head rooster in the cannabis farm - have you seen cock fights? My painting speaks for me.
Fuck I'm pissed off today - after reading about this bullshit in our community & I'm clearly NOT alone, I have lived here over 25 years and in the restaurant business socially witnessing much over the years... all these politicians who didn't have any issues drinking at lunch meetings - FUCKING hypocrites!
I also know a few who have toked a time or FEW- SHAME ON YOU!
I read one councillor said "we already have a problem with drugs in the community" - this is fucking priceless coming from someone who sells ALCOHOL - YOU know what's a bigger problem in Georgina >>> ALCOHOL ABUSE! FACT.
The Mayor remarked -"legalization won't take away the drug dealer on the corner" - No it won't Margaret- YOU deciding NOT to allow a dispensary - will for SURE KEEP THE 'ILLEGAL DRUG DEALERS ON THE FUCKING CORNER. DO you realize the revenue we just GAVE AWAY? To AURORA I GUESS. I wonder if that has anything to do with this bullshit decision, so much for 'legalization' when people - who really should not even have any say in what WE do in our own homes as ADULTS - with a 'now LEGAL substance' - not allowing us to even buy it locally - SPEAKS volumes.
ALL the business lost. Do you seriously think people will drive elsewhere to buy their cannabis but come back home for Lunch, Dinner, a movie or to even shop? If you do believe it your a dope. Nope - it won't happen - Georgina you can kiss those dollars GOODBYE.
Reality/statistics/facts show us (if you don't want to think it or admit it fine..) BUT people (minors included) WILL drive ELSEwhere to purchase cannabis & party it up elsewhere (it's what we do - it's called human nature) and sadly some returning home will possible get into an accident - REMEMBER this COUNCIL MEMBERS - remember this with your decision to make people drive ELSEWHERE for a legal substance. One proven far less harmful than alcohol.
I'll fucking remind you with an email every time I read about another impaired death on Woodbine.
I've got to admit I e mailed Rob Grossi this a.m., (our former mayor) so upset.. (at least he TRIED) & it hit me.. this battle we have fought for so many years - for our sons medicine - to educate... to try to show how many children it helps... why do I bother?!
I feel today I've lost this battle... I feel defeated.
In my own fucking home town.
Taking a break.
My next canvas is a statement piece & the timing is perfect- I'm finishing today! Arrrrgh! I'm reminded again why I'm not on FB I hear it's really ugly at the moment- or Juicy' what ever you choose to call it - I'm off of it... I read enough yesterday of what M.E. wrote to know I don't want to read anymore. I feel bad for anyone who puts up with crap for a paycheque as I've been there myself too many times. The more I read the more I thought of Jodie in a new light & I can't help but feel bad for all the stress she must be experiencing and not for 'her own actions', imo she has always been impressive & professional in her talks and her demeanour & when your husband behaves like an ass what are you gonna do? We have all been there, most of us anyhow. This is a little more than behaving like an ass.
A wife should not be punished for the actions of her husband -visa versa- just like the saying a son should not be punished for the action of his father.
IF this were the case - we'd all be in trouble.
I was struggling with this painting because I know women who are struggling with sexual harassment in the industry & no one is safe. I started it a few weeks ago & then was told by a friend her boss is again threatening her with loss of employment if she does not comply and I got all flustered and walked away- I don't want to paint in anger.
Where do you go for help? Who do you ask? It was only a matter of time & it's far from over there are many horror stories - it's EVERY industry but because this industry has been ILLEGAL for so long it's been permitted to grow & thrive. Pun intended.
I 'lol' yesterday when I read a post where Dan Bilzerian (what ever his name is) posted about this "#metoo shit getting out of control.." & another man replied: that's priceless coming from a guy who's kicked a woman in the face, broke another woman's leg & pays models to be with him" Wow. Thank you to that gentleman for speaking up & SEEing the problem. If you behave like this yes, I guess you might be a little worried.
Thank God for #metoo, maybe in a few years women & men will # #notmethankfully
It's already been going on for too long, here is an article to give you some insight: https://www.revealnews.org/article/in-secretive-marijuana-industry-whispers-of-abuse-and-trafficking/ Men & women are being abused mentally, physically & financially consistently taken advantage of by those who have money & power.
Usually men - Cocks in the field raising a ruckus -what else is new?
I am able to see the cocks because I also know a few gentlemen in the industry - thankfully . & for this reason I give thanks or cannabis legalization in Canada - this sexual harassment bullshit won't be tolerated - no one should be worried about not receiving a paycheque for the job they are HIRED to do - without fear & constant stress from predators.
There is hope in legalization across the nation!
Accountability & professionalism & Product Quality are what will survive in this industry... Be nice.
Time to paint this grey day away!

I'll expose my cocks tomorrow.. lots to look at.
What did I do yesterday? Cleaned my ROOM! At the start of the year I read about a book where the author said 'keep your room clean' - meaning the mental space in your head - it stuck with me & I took some of the advice mentioned - I'll consider reading the book next. It was time of a new perspective - nothing fancy but it all sparks joy ;) & my bed - custom made is great- I actually think I finally know what I'm going to paint - in the spring so I can keep the windows open. I have no children to worry about so I proudly display my cannabis in a designated area. It's clean now * comfortable, I tossed junk, thinks I've been hanging onto for years - why? No clue - all worthless, some broken -what ever- it's gone now.
Toss that trash!
Speaking of tossing trash look who's talking trash...
Marc Emery is all over the news again - the self proclaimed Prince of Pot - I can't help but think - he is done' another one taken down by the #metoo #timeisup movement - #whosnext? If the rest that comes out on him is anything like I am currently reading he is off to jail again - for sexually abusing women & using his power in a negative way. Jodie, her 'career' is over too, I'm guessing - even if she was/is a victim - she was also a partner who seems to be well aware of everything else going on & handled it all professionally as she stood by her man - stand by your man- phhhhhbt. I had a friend me tell me someone that works with them closely is also being accused of rape, someone I met. Yuk.. it makes you feel dirty just knowing - I feel sorry for all the young ladies & men he TOUCHED. I offered thanks this morning to Michelle Rainey, she warned me then "stay away from Marc & Jodie Emery - they are not as they appear... " she wasn't the only one. I am thankful I listened - I've seen it myself - it is easy to get caught up with all the fake smiles & cameras and "we love you" screams to Marc & Jodie at events - do you understand WHO you scream that to? I was black balled by the Emerys & "groupies" because I did not kiss the royal couples ass - (which I was told on several occasions) Amen, Absolutely -a blessing in disguise!
When, I read what he himself posted on the cannabis culture fourm & was posted on twitter - I wanted to puke in my coffee - HIS OWN words - & it reads like instructions on how to rape a woman in the ass - and then ends with how to ignore her complaints when you're done - I guess for the next time you rape her. HE IS A PIG & ALL who watched and allowed - are just as bad. He wanted the attention - he got it. 'This' is who people have 'looked up to' in the cannabis industry, no wonder there have been such struggles.
This is someone you want to hang around? Is this is someone you support?
I have the feeling a lot more is going to be exposed before we hear the end of it... I could care less if I hear anymore - I'd rather clean than dirty my mind with what I might read. Paint peacefully than give either of them any more consideration... I was made aware of the other side of them both years ago. Thank God.
The sun the moon & the truth ... who's next?
'Bad boy, bad boy what you gonna do?... What you gonna do when they come for you?
'Boys will be boys... 'Boys will be held accountable for their actions..
Back to painting some beautiful natural medicine -true beauty in this world.
Have a peek at the cutest Poppy ever below.

Yikes! I'm freezing my ass off! Today was another -22 day- 3 minutes outside filling bird feeders can bring a serious discomfort to ones hands- as if they are ON fire. Nope, It was an official PJ day & I got my ass in gear (hee hee) & painting this lovely Donkey for a lovely lady named Rosie.
It's too cold for the dogs too Poppy can't take it, she walks af if she is in pain & I encourage them to use the bathroom inside today (peepads on the bathroom floor) & they listen. The rest of the time they fight over heat registers, the one in my office is the preffered register as it hits them like a personal heater, I give thanks for the heat in my home - Rosie is in California which is also experiencing colder than usual temperatures.. it's no -22.
Rosie had brain surgery recently & she is bouncing right back - already up and at it only days later- it amazes me. We have only ever been social media friends- but for a very long time now- I can't even guess, if I had to I'd say easily over 10 years... when I think of all the times she has placed a smile on my face - I wanted to do the same. It's just as important to surround yourself with good people online & I belive Rosie & her Hubby are good people (I've invited them to visit!), she's been a wonderful example of awesome... helpful & positive, encouraging & loving to family & friends... it's been nice to watch, painting this donkey to cheer her up is the least I can do, not only was it fun it it warmed my own heart on this very cold day.
The next time your feeling cold- think of 'someone' wonderful who makes you smile- it might be with silly posts - whatever, luckily there are many awesome people on the planet - we can choose whom we think about... it will warm you right up.
Painting this doneky made me feel all warm & Rosie. ;)
HOME is a documentary I like to watch once a year.. I noticed it's been 10 years, I wonder what the director/artist would think now.. I wish he would go back & film ALL the same places 10 years later - or do I? You can watch it here: Go - Go see this HOME we live on.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU it's stunning.
I watched Surviving R.Kelly & do not understand how he got where he did - with all who knew how he was - or do I? Everyone who went along with him should also be charged... I hope young ladies DO watch & understand to people like this - you are just an object to be owned & used & tossed, how many lives he ruined can't even be comprehended. His money his power- means FUCK all now - The women who did not speak up and continued to watch him destroy lives & NOT warn others.. you can see how it plays on them now, it's a sad situation all around but none as terrible than for the little girls exposed to such pigs- their childhood gone forever by a dirty old man who KNOWS better but also thinks he is better than most & do as they please. Not for long.
It's still cold on this blue Monday- but I did not feel blue at all! I felt Rosie!
I look forward to a new day tomorrow- for another painting adventure.

Tonight is the night to see the wolf BLOOD moon & I'm excited! Anyone who claims we are not effected by the moon - is in denial. Thinking about the plight of birds... the flight of birds who are effected by the moon & night sky like my red breasted robin & my hopes are birds will not disappear as soon as anticipated.
Lets hope the planet won't disappear as soon as anticipated.
Global warming, pipelines exploding, trees disappearing, fish dying, women still marching for rights not given, women marching to have missing women acknowledged', human sexual trafficking is at an all time high- Children are the worst victims and what do we 'see' constantly - ignorant little pukes like this one:
https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/indigenous-march-student-mock-1.4985493?cmp=newsletter-news-digests-canada-and-world-morning in their red hats covering their hate filled brains. All this has me thinking... we are in trouble if this is the direction of our future.
This past year has me convinced we should abolish ALL MALE schools.
Look at the pack mentality it creates, A PACK of wild, nasty beasts who in the past year have been exposed for rape, abuse & violence - of fellow students (each other) & then all those around them. I can't imagine its helpful to young women- I don't have to STUDY or have research done to know the mentality & conversations being had in such environments ABOUT women in general - neither do you. All boys schools only strengthens the "Boys will be boys mentality" - and these boys will be running the world one day? It's frightening - especially when we see the evil that already resides. #metoo isn't going anywhere & #whosnext & of course #timesup ! thankfully will help keep those who behave badly in check - or at least shine a new light - so we can all SEE the evil for what it is and CHANGE it. Correct it. Call it out!
I'll be looking for the beauty in the moon tonight as the same time I'll be praying for world peace... I'm not alone, this I know.

'Blue Monday' tomorrow... Grin & BEAR it! It's just another day...
Not this Georgia - Georgia in Australia like rats.
This Georgia likes to find other Georgia's online and paints them little gifts - because:
"Us Georgia's need to stick together!" lol
WE are All lovely creatures - inside and out, I choose to surround myself with other loving, talented, compassionate beings... all named Georgia. hee hee
It takes me from my comfort zone painting I don't know what for I don't know who... gives me an excuse to try something knew, I clean my pallet & mind * LET GO & I paint with TLC as always, knowing I am going to bring a smile to another Georgia's face on this planet, luckily US Georgia's all seem to LOVE animals and commonly have all sorts of pets - when I was first asked to paint these rats I thought, why can't it be a dog - but I can see Georgia loves them so I decided to love them too & invite them to a TEA party!
The first 1/2 is time-lapse as seen on my instagram is 'base painting. I needed a break & forgot to 'resume' in the afternoon. I know she will like it. the original is on it's way...
I've made a new friend named Georgia - I'm really making these friends because I'm getting bad with names. Smart huh!? I'm not just another pretty face ya know. ;)
Next -the blood moon I hope to see tomorrow evening!
Make a new friend - TRY, what have you got to lose?
