What Magic Mushroom Have I Licked Today?! Couldn't think of what befitting title to give this Fridays artsy fartsy freebie blog — that one was quite a mouthful...now let's see if it's a visually compatible with your palette (whoops, it's a pun!...art palette, mouth palette...oh OK, I'll shut up)? I was tinkering about earlier this... Continue Reading →

Today I conjured up this e-card in an attempt to spread some cheer around the globe at the beginning of this wonderful new year.  2013 is going to be fantastic...it has to be after the...

The End of the Mayan Calendar but a New Beginning for Us!

Today is the last date on that infamous Mayan calendar.  For me, this is a symbolic 'reboot' day.  I feel it is the start of a new way of thinking and life as we know it, on this beautiful planet.  How?  Why?  What the hell?  Who knows! All I can tell you is that change... Continue Reading →

The Zen of Christmas

Keep it Simple As you are all probably well-aware of, Christmas has become the most over commercialized holiday on record. Where are those Christmas Day's that saw us making presents for each other, or simply buying one token of appreciation for that special someone instead of amassing them with a dozen gifts whilst maxing out...

An Artful Splash of Colour For Your Facebook Timeline

My niece came up with a great idea the other day, she asked me if I had any of my art on Facebook headers/timeline covers (or whatever else  you want to call them — you know, that strip of space behind your profile pic?). So I came up with these 4, for now, which you... Continue Reading →

Serenity…Your Passport to Peace

Serenity — that wondrous state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled. But how do we get there?  You get quiet — it's really that simple. “Nothing is so aggravating as calmness.”  ―    Mahatma Gandhi Have you ever tried remaining calm when someone else is raging at you?  Have you noticed how quickly they stop?  Why...

Finding Your Inner Peace

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does  not obtain peace of mind — Buddha I want to keep on reminding you about gratitude.  Why?  Because to be in a state of thankfulness you are very close if not touching internal peace. When you brim with gratitude, that... Continue Reading →

The Zen of Life

We make life complicated.  The key to true happiness lies in our ability to simplify our lives, not to busy them. Peel away the onion layers...find the innate within.

Beet it! 2 Super Juices that will Give you the Edge

My local supermarket started stocking organic vegetable juice recently.  I took the plunge and bought their beetroot and carrot juices (separately).  I have experienced carrot juice before and it is fairly innocuous — especially when mixed with orange juice. Beetroot, however, is pungent and, although I don't mnd the taste, it can be rather invasive smell-wise, stain-wise,... Continue Reading →

The Simple Pleasures in Life

Flower Power I was out walking with a friend yesterday, we noticed some beautiful gardens. Among the gorgeous, colourful flower beds, my eye fell upon some wild red poppies.  It brought back memories of my poppy painting days.  So I took a trip down memory lane and pulled out some of these quotes to accompany my poppy art. ...

Let Nature Guide You to Health and Happiness

Our Natural State of Bliss When we are in nature, we are in our natural state — in our ‘element’. That is why it feels so joyful, a state of inexplicable bliss. We are made up of the dirt of the earth and will return there some day.  The ingredients of our bodies are made... Continue Reading →

Where is Your Thinking Pointing You?

Today, I want to focus your attention on your thoughts. What is it that you are always primarily thinking about? Are they thoughts and intentions that will lead you to where you want to be?

Blissful Wallpaper Quotations (All for Free!)

I went away with a friend a couple of months ago to a spiritual retreat called Temenos in McGregor, Western Cape.  It was a truly blissful 4 day excursion of introspection and quiet reflection. The gardens and sacred spaces were not only peaceful, exhilarating and beautiful but also inspiring.  I took along my camera in the... Continue Reading →

Celebrating Planet Earth!

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.... Continue Reading →
