For Paint Party Friday this week I created a buddha with mantras in the background.

There are 4 mantras on this and they are:

I am enlightening.  I am strengthening.  I am mending.  I am repairing.  I am healing.  I am reviving the peace and love within me.  

I open to the fullness of my power.  I live my life with integrity.  I have the power to manifest my dreams.  Whatever I do is more than enough.  I am enough just as I am!  In challenging situations I am relaxed and focused on positive outcomes.  I am at peace with myself.  I harness my personal power.  I can.  I will.  I do.  

I am loved.  Everything I do, I do with love.  I am receptive and open to receiving love.  My heart is healing, my needs fulfilled.  I let go of all resentments.  I forgive others and ask forgiveness and lovingly let go of the past.  I allow the abundance of the universe to pour into my heart.  

I am bountiful, blissful and beautiful; bountiful, blissful and beautiful I am.  

May you walk in love and light.

Mermaid with Starfish

This is a mixed media mermaid...
I started on a sheet of thin paper with pencil, then oil pastels...
glued it to a 16x20 canvas and painted it with acrylics.
Then I added tissue paper for dimension, gluing and painting it on with liquitex.
Lastly I sprayed some glitter :)
why not?
a little glitter in winter goes a long way! :)

Sun Flower Half Face Painting #101

I just realized I never posted about my mixed media Sun Flower Half Face painting.
It was a work in progress that I just let my heart and mind play with... the colors, patterns, textures were all created as I let my mind wander... as you can see it was a long process to finally achieve the final creation!  Now I need to create another with the other side of the face! :)
