Be Uplifted

January has been such an emotional roller coaster. 

The Lows- There seem to be a spell of heartbreaking events happening to people I care a great deal about at the moment and it really makes me wonder how life can truly deal you a hand not worth playing. I have offered support in any way I could to ease situations and put to task the true meaning of friendship. 

The Highs- having sold 4 paintings in 2 weeks, had me beyond elation. Especially since I know the buyers and was rest assured it will be enjoyed and appreciated. Also, in the midst of it all working on a commission piece for a new home...such joy. Working on this landscape piece in particular has really enabled me to better cope with the level of stress I was under re-above. Art is so powerful and such a wonderful stress reliever. I would encourage anyone to dabble, doodle, draw , pick up your old sketch pad, any random piece of paper and just mindlessly scribble .....it is the cheapest form of stress relief.

I wanted to share a few pics that I also found to help ease me through times when I needed to be uplifted.

Most seascapes and landscapes has always felt like home to me, no matter where I am I can look at a photo of the ocean/lake/forest and I'll feel at home. The calmness of nature  keeps me grounded when the world around me seems so chaotic . I hope these pics do the same for you if ever you feel overwhelmed!

The horizon cannot be seen which enhances focus on the listless boat.Photo by Richard CalmesFall is a beautiful time of yearThe calm after the storm in Yosemite National Park.Photo: National Park Service"Calm morning-Li River” by Michael SheridanQuiet & Calm...CalmRose colored sky reflecting on calm waters Stock PhotoThe sea has always been a sense of home to me, no matter where I am I can look at a photo of the ocean and I'll feel at home. The calmness of the sea is what keeps me sane in this chaotic world.
