Once a year is not enough to give thanks but the habit of giving thanks everyday sets a positive emotion inside us. I know I have a tremendous amount to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family, friends, human angels and most importantly GOD.
I live in a wonderful country, state, city, and neighborhood.
I and God create beauty and love when I listen really well to the Spirit.
So thanks to God and to you, my family, friends, human and spiritual angels.
The Mandala on the right is called "Infinite".

This colored pencil drawing is called "Opening The World". It is a mandala which I did a few years ago. This is before I stopped doing the mandalas to start my day. I guess when I moved out of my studio and into my home, I didn't realize after having an outside studio for 5 years that I would get caught up into home stuff and computer AND the "business of art". As I get older, focusing is hard because I have to let the painting or paintings dry so I start doing other things. This has got to stop because I'm not into my "Zen Zone" as much.
So I made an "intention" to look for a studio so I can just paint and teach in the first quarter of 2009.
After all the "noise" of the economy the World Still Spins on it's Axis and I'm not fearful because this is my mission to do art and God honors me doing it.

The garbage is over! I bet you are as sick of the politics as I am. From now on I'm going to concentrate on becoming a better ME. I have lots to do today. Working on my newsletter, rewriting some of my blogs for use in other venues, doing this blog, photographing my new works(that is a two day project, replacing photos on my website (after I get the photography done). The list goes on. But I'm really grateful to live in the United States in beautiful Arizona and Scottsdale by the mountains. I'm grateful for the love of and for my husband and for the ability to create great art (I think so)!
I'm looking for a studio outside my house. I had a great studio for 5 years in old town Scottsdale but moved back to the house when the developers were building the Waterfront complex. It got to be so dirty. I'll be teaching acrylic classes and my Spiritual Art workshop. Let me know if you are interested. Landis@landisart.com
