Flowers for you, and you, and yes, you.

Flowers for you, and you, and you.

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” ~ Luther Burbank

I created this collage with you in mind. May these flowers feed your soul as you go through your day.

Blessings, Lydia

Hearts, hearts, hearts

Hearts, hearts, hearts

 

Although I am not down with the greeting card industry dedicating this one day of the year to expressing love to the ones that you love and care about, I couldn’t let the day go by unnoticed. Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you lovely people! I am blessed by and grateful for each of you. I hope that your day is filled with expressions of love in all your encounters and in everything that you do. In addition to verbal protestations of love, if you perform any act with your heart, there is love. I trust that you remember that every day is Valentine’s Day in the sense that you shouldn’t allow a day to go by without expressing your love to the people most important to you. Life is much too short and each moment of it is precious and should be drenched in love.

 

Blessings and love, Lydia

Sunny Teal

Sunny Teal
As I prepared to paint, I played with different color combinations. Today is a beautiful sunshiny day, thus, the yellow, and because I like the color, I choose this teal color to complement it. What do you think, hit or miss?

Seeking Tranquility

Seeking Tranquility
Today, as the saying goes, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. It is dreary and cold outside (I understand that it is all relative compared to the weather that some are experiencing, and I am being a whiny baby.), and I loathe cold weather. Largely, my dislike of cold weather is exacerbated by the fact that it worsens my fibromyalgia and as a result, my pain level is quite high. All of my actions seem forced and melancholy is my predominant state of mind. As a result, I wanted to create a collage that, for me, represents tranquility. The blue/turquoise colors, candle, flowers, statute of the Buddha, and water fountain add to my sense of tranquility. Perhaps it will help, and perhaps it won’t, but at least, I am doing my best to deal, and that will have to suffice for today. I hope that you are safe, happy and warm wherever you may be.


Blessings, Lydia
