The negotiation..........?

Original acrylic painting on a salvaged wood cabinet door
 SOLD!
I'm not a strong negotiator. However I'm a peacemaker, so I suppose it's a mixed contradiction of thoughts. There are times in my life when I have thought to myself, "I talked myself out of that one." Like when I divulged a meticulous plan with my two cousins to decorate my parent's front lawn with extra soft toilet paper. I convinced my mother it must have been our sneaky neighbors. Many years later the truth came out, and I confessed in a heap of laughter. "I'm sorry to all of my neighbors whom may have been caught up in the cross-fire.

Sad, sad kitty..., Very sad.

Hello Sunshine!

Original acrylic painting on 10" x 8" stretched canvas
 
Meditating on the positive things in my life, even if it is the smallest thing gives me strength and helps me to persevere over the negative.  No matter how dark my day may feel, I have the power to bring a little sunshine into it!

Gratitude


Original acrylic painting completed Thanksgiving day 2014

"Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
