Finished this painting recently but it still needs a name. Any suggestions?

Cat portrait

And so it is now a week since my Cassie passed away. She was almost 20 years young. Not bad. She was spunky and full of life up until the last couple of weeks. Her purr could be heard on the next block. She was one of those sweet, white and fluffy types. Her self-appointed positions included secretary extraordinare, wardrobe consultant and reliable alarm clock. She always performed these tasks well and with gusto.

So here is the picture I used to do her pet portrait:

And here is the portrait I did from it:

I still have her brother Thor. I hope he sticks around for a bit. Took this recently:

He’s a real sweetheart.

I am the fortunate one.

Landscape progress

Finally starting to look like a painting! I started this Plein Air and have wrestled with it ever since. Some paintings or drawings come more easily than others.

I just looked to see when I started this painting, omg, where did the time go. I went in February to a paint out with the Palm Beach Plein Air group. Maybe I will finish it this month!
 

A Dove and a Butterfly, Soul Portraits and Readings

A dove landed on my balcony three times today when I was preparing posts and doing website updates. This never happened before. It stayed awhile too. Very reassuring. Bidding me peace and letting me know that the universe is with me. It gave me great hope. When the butterfly joined it, flittering around for awhile, I smiled. Yes, things are going to be alright. Faith is a funny thing. This inner sense of knowing that it will all work out and I will be happy with the results. I have worked too hard and too long for anything else. My consciousness will no longer accept anything else. So, it is.

I am attuned to the subtle nuances and signals that the universe sends me. I try to control what I put out as well. That is a harder discipline. I have been on this path all my life and consciously aware of it for almost 4 decades. OMG, is it that long. How can that be? 29 forever, right? Keeping your sense of humor these days is, I think, very important.

The reason I am sharing this is to remind people to pay attention to the little things. Life is sending you signals. Answers to your myriad questions are right before you, within you. Multiple solutions, multiple ways, which way is best is up to you to decide, and then ACT. Who you are is up to you, and you alone.

A wish list:

I wish you peace and joy and prosperity.

I wish for an end to world suffering, and that peace prevail sooner than later.

I wish for a cure for cancer to actually make it out to the market (it already exists). Cancer took my sister, too young, only 56. I know she is still with me, often.

I wish for my friends’ and family’s health and prosperity.

Soul Portrait

I am an artist and spiritual teacher/healer/medium.

I do spiritual insight readings as well. $50 for 1/2 hour reading.
