*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!

I've been getting lots of "messages" from blogger. One about the privacy thing and now about comments? I just want everything to stay the same! If any of you know about the comments, can you let me know? It said something about "open ID" comments are no more?

About our privacy, I think we have to write our own message?
I think it's all confusing!

On a "brighter" note. I want to share why, I keep the "wild flowers" growing in our yard!
I have my own "natural" deweeder! Is that a word? LOL
If you leave things alone, nature will take care of it's self 😃
Do you remember this?
"Finished" painting- (8" x 16" wood)
"Don't Hide Your Imperfections"
"Find Beauty In The Innocence Of Them"
Many of you have been commenting about my backgrounds, as in, just leaving the paintings, without my crows. I did that once and it wasn't me. Personally, I love adding layer, upon layer of paint. I'm telling a story, even if you can't see what's back there. I know it's there.

I did finish one more painting.
"Bring The Real You To The World" (5" x 5" wood)

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're well!
Remember this?
Well, this is what it looks like now.
I've been doing lots of gardening. Transplanting, trimming and cutting the lawn.

Happy to see  my mint coming up. I have a really large patch. It smells great and makes great tea!
Next picture, to the left, chives and to the right, one of my favourite trees. I have 3 of them. "Taxus Baccata", "or should I say, Yew Tree. So easy to grow and maintain! Now behind the tree, you will see some of my "wild" flowers. If Mother Nature wants to give me a gift, I leave it alone.
I took some close up pictures of these flowers. Well, they haven't bloomed yet, but I took pictures of the leaves, for CJ. On her blog, she has something growing and she's not sure what it is. Unfortunately, I think the leaves on my plant are smaller than her's, but it could be in the same family?
See that tiny little white ball in the middle? It will soon bloom a really pretty flower. I'll take pictures when this happens.

I have started a new painting! Some progress pictures for you.

And, this is where I'm at now.
I'll leave you with a picture of me outside. Hot, smiling and in my soul, never been happier!

Hi Everyone 😊
Hope you're all well!

I don't know how to explain, what I'm feeling right now.
Have you ever been away, just for a short time and think, did this really happen? Was this a dream?
Feel so at one with yourself and others.
Have someone say to you, you're amazing and say thank you. To accept a complement from a complete stranger and know he means it, is a big thing, especially for me. For many of us, it's hard to accept a complement. It's all about loving ourselves. Ever little inch! And, loving all our quirks, fears, anxieties, etc. (Things we want to hide from others.) I have truly came to this point! I Love Me!! And, it feels so damn good!! Lots of crying and there still is. When I came home and looked at myself in a mirror and said, you're amazing, the tears started to flow!

To have people come up to you and say, I love your laugh and give them a big hug.

To be you! To have others be themselves. To get along so naturally, so lovingly.

I feel like I have been zapped! And, it feels so good!

When I came home, I weighed myself, (I always do). Now all of you know, I was away for 3 days and two nights. I lost 6 pounds! And, I did eat!

Live!! All we are is this moment!
And, live with passion. So many of us want things and think things will change when we get them. Why can't we start living, like we already have those things?

It was truly an amazing weekend. And, I am hoping to do something like this again, maybe in September and October.

Again, thank you all for letting me share this and thank you for reading!

I'll probably only make one post this week. I have a lot of catching up to do with all of you.

Here are some photos from the garden.

All Of You Are Amazing!!!!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!

A quick little post.
Sorry, no paintings to show this week.

This weekend, Friday, till Sunday evening, I will be totally "unplugged". I'm going on a weekend retreat (by myself) and I'm so excited! Never done anything like this before.

I promise to catch up with you all, when I get back!!!

I had planned to write more, but every time I wrote something, I deleted it! I just can't explain how much I have "grown" since January. A complete shift has taken place and it feels amazing. There has been tones of crying, but that is good! You have to focus on what is happening inside of you.

Hard to explain this all, but I hope you kind of get what I'm talking about.

Thanks for letting me share this and thanks for reading!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Everything is budding and turning green!
So happy the rhubarb is doing well!! I love rhubarb!!
I'm down to one and a little bit left in my bags of earth. I have a lot of transplanting to do, after May 24 weekend. That is a "rule" in Canada, never plant anything before that time, because we could have frost or snow. Actually, last night, we did have frost!

I finished another painting. Here are some progress photos.
Finished painting,
"Hi Beautiful Soul, I'm Here For You" (6" x 8" wood panel)

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well 😃
Happy May! This year is going by so fast!
We have went from Spring to Summer temperatures in just 2 days. Crazy weather!

Where I live, all of our outside stuff goes into brown bags and then gets picked up at the curb. These bags you see, are just from the front yard and I'm not done yet!

The statue you see above, greets everyone when you come to the front door.
Remember I was telling you, I was trimming our spruce tree? Well, I think I did very well. I kept going around and around, (my neighbours thought I had went nuts! LOL! They know me well! LOL!) I got up to roughly 13 feet. When you look at the picture, the branches were over the driveway to the left. It was a lot of cutting! Took me like 4 days.

I did manage to start a painting. Here are some progress pictures.
I have to admit, I like the way it looks now.

I'll be around soon to say hi!
Big Hugs 😀
