New auction: The Wise Fox.

Her name is Karma.

It's a really nice mini painting!
Here's a link to the auction on eBay
Good luck to all who will be playing!

"If Fox has made Her appearance in your life:
The solution to a problem is at hand. The Fox spirit is the grand problem solver. She will guide you to solitude and silence until the way out is shown. A healthy combination of persistence and patience will strike a balance that picks apart a problem until it is solved.
Alternatively, are you having trouble adjusting to a new living situation or job? Do you feel like you’re barely scraping by? When sly Fox crosses your path it can be a signal to open your eyes, so that you can see the situation for what it is – not as you wish it to be."

eBay again! and more to come.....

Facebook auctions didn't work, Instagram auctions not yet I am back on eBay.
This cat painting is active now and ends on Wednesday 8/23/17 at 4:44 pm PST
It's an original piece and quite adorable, if I may say (well, I just did!).


It's HOT here in California and my brain only wants to rest and do nothing but chores are a daily thing, and today I plan on finishing a fox aceo painting to participate in a monthly contest on eBay.
If you wish to see the contest, the keyword on eBay to find them is "NFAC art"

I'll post here when mine is done.
(This eclipse and energies bouncing around are really affecting me so intensely!)
Please slow down time, just a little bit.

Mercury Retrograde, cats, birds...

I made a typo on Instagram when I posted the painting of cat and birds as an auction. I can't edit posts on IG so I had to take it down. Then things got busy and I haven't relisted it.

In the meantime, I have uploaded the same image to my shop at Redbubble.
Look how cool these acrylic blocks are and how great they would look in a child's room, or your room, if you love cats. There are other products with this image, and other designs there, so please take a look.

I feel I have to say this again: I don't have a formal online shop right now but everything I show is for sale or it shows you what I can do, and if you think of something or need a special item, ask to get on my list of custom work. I'm currently not working on commissions (trying to get my mojo back!) but I do have a waiting list.
And please be willing to wait because I do everything myself: all my online updates, all listings, all thinking, planning, inspiration, painting, shipping, customer service....

...all of that while having daily chores at my new home that must get done no matter what. Since we live without many of the conveniences of modern life, everything takes longer and requires more energy. And the heat, that makes me tired on its own (though I love warm weather, you probably know that).

I am considering very seriously getting a formal studio because I am certain I cannot work at home anymore, especially now, not having a dedicated room, which...hmmm...gonna take a good while since we are here to build a home. Our place has one room, that's where I have tried to work, unsuccessfully.  Then it came to me that my home studio worked before because (1) I was alone most days, for most of each day, (2) I had a big home: 2 levels, 3 bedrooms, and one was dedicated to being my atelier and (3) I was younger, therefore I had more energy and (4) I had all of the modern conveniences and could stay in the studio for hours each day. That's when I used to forget to eat, and yes, I got sick by doing that. But boy, was I rolling with art back then!

Then I realized how much I was still mourning those days and hoping for things I had back then when (hello!) my situation now has changed drastically, and gladly so. I'm building a brand new life here! Of course, it takes time, patience, and major readjusting. After 7 years in one rental, we made a huge move to our place last year. The land and structures had been uncared for years before we came into the picture, and making it decent has taken so much effort and time. My husband demolished an entire old trailer by himself! by hand!

Anyway, I am looking at spaces and HOPING that I soon get the guts to "just do it". I feel that my creativity is returning and so is my confidence.

Feeling tired?

"Rest is 
not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

These pre eclipse days are the end tail of a very intense, demanding period, emotionally and physically...heck, in all aspects. As a highly sensitive, I feel it constantly. I feel it around me, in others, in how others share or speak on social media, in the news, etc.

It's been very I am firing back with relaxation...just to remind everyone that if you are exhausted, REST! People really need to undo this programming of always acting up, as in DOING, not being...when people get tired, they deny it, they deny mentally as well as physically that their system is asking for a reboot. And the price is paid for that type of self-recklessness.

It's just a mind set, which means the cure is in a mind tweak that doesn't have to be complicated.
Observe animals. We are animals too.
