Party Calligraphy

Posted Aug 2020

Just nice to have around. On the table. In the car.

Especially nice if it's matted and framed on the wall.

I'm happy to draw Calligraphy Words or Calligraphy Names for All the Guests at your Event. Patience. Health. Love. Peace. Joy. Faith. Courage. Bravery. Life. Creativity. Cooperation. Confidence. Energy........

Erase Fear

Posted Nov 2019

Took this photo when I walked into the Art Supply Store. I like the slogan on the shirt. Erase Hate.

I figure that we could Erase all sorts of things we don't like. We could erase it with Rainbow colors ~ like these. It's good to be an #Artist.

As with everything we do, the Experience is different than just saying it.

First, I erased Fear with a rainbow line ~ like the one I saw on the Shirt. In order to do that, I made an Opaque Layer of White, and then I drew Transparent Colors on top of it. I needed to do that so I could make the bright Colors obliterate what was underneath it.

Then I erased Panic with White.

Then I tried to erase a Scene ~ going right into it with Transparent Rainbow Colors. On top of the Black background that the tshirt-Artist chose so perfectly, the Transparent Rainbow Colors did not look delightful. I realized that we need an intermediary. Like going to Jesus to erase our sins. For this project's intermediary, I had to put a Layer of White over the Scene before I could apply the Colors. And then I let the Colors fly off the white ~ to even take over the Black scene.

I feel good.

I particularly Love that I just discovered that we don't have to somehow Stop the bad things from the past like we do with a Pencil Eraser. In this Non-physical world, we can easily Erase them the way I did just now in PhotoShop. We can erase past sins by doing something lovely on top of them. Afterwards.

Never a dull moment ~ I haven't even had a chance to enjoy drawing a picture For Myself yet. I still have some vague ideas about a different expression/posture to illustrate Openhearted Loving, but this posts are getting close.

I just duplicated a different image ~ one I drew a long time ago ~ to set it as my Computer's Desktop Image instead. Even though the one I posted a few weeks ago had inspired my inSight because of what was going on That day, I feel like today's post is a little better at illustrating the message. To Love. With eyes closed to all the reasons why I might not want to. Eyes closed to any judgement of the person/place/thing being icky or bad. Eyes closed to previous hurts ~ whether it be by this person or from some other person/experience. Eyes closed to fear of what I might lose/spend.

Just an open heart. As pure as when we're children/toddlers/babies who have no memory of previous experiences. No 'intelligence' to forcast possible future experiences. Just the current moment of joy, excitement, hope, expecting good things.

And this image works on my Computer's Desktop even though it's So Purple. And Bright. It feels Loving, and I can still see my Folders.

Posted Dec 2016

So much going on this season. So many Parties and Events.

At one afternoon Holiday Event, I was set up right next to Santa ~ and we Entertainers had time to play around before the event started. So I asked Santa if I could have a more Loving Heart. Something that I seriously wanted, but I didn't really take the Santa-Man seriously. And of course, right in character, he assured me that I could. He told me that I could get what i want for Christmas.

Okay, okay. The guests are coming in. Got to get to work. "Hello there. Yes ~ I would feel happy to draw you."

I Enjoyed drawing CARICATURES, as usual. And as usual, there's the request for 'just one more' when it's time for me to clear up and get to my next event. "Sure. I'd feel happy to draw just one more."

But I had to get to a Wedding. It had been snowing that morning, and I felt concerned about the possibility of having to clear off my car again. I felt concerned about slower driving in inclement weather. I feel like it's important to arrive at All Events on time, and I also feel like it's important to put Safety First while driving. So I drew the last CARICATURE very quickly.

Whoah. I was stopped in my tracks when I saw what I drew. It was The Answer to my Question -- about a more Loving Heart. A Happy open attitude of Love. with your eyes closed. By that I mean to just be happy with the people and events that come my way without looking at my learned insecurities, fears, jealousies, disappointments. Opening my Heart of Love, Welcoming, Hope ~ Like a Baby or a Puppy who is always excited to see people ~ does not remember previous disappointments or worrisome what-ifs ~ just open and responding directly to what is happening in that new moment.

I took a photo of the CARICATURE that I had given the Guest. So I was able to affect it in PhotoShop when I got home. I prepared it so it would fit as the Background of my Computer Desktop. I dulled it Brown so I could still see the Light Blue Folders and White Documents that I'm working with on my Desktop. Turned out to be a good reminder for me to get past my negatives. And the fact that I had to duplicate it to make it fit onto my screen also worked for me. Because I learned to close my eyes yet Again for the few times when I am disappointed even after I chose to override a tendency towards being closed or mean.

So far, it's Only had a good effect on my personal relationships. Perhaps there is a place for our negative emotions ~ sometimes they might be telling us stuff. But usually, they are just Ugly. And I have been feeling The Fruit of the Spirit when I have been able to break away from such ugliness. Love, Joy, Peace, Long-Suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperence.....

I don't actually feel like I drew Exactly what I wanted. I didn't know that I was 'answering my question' when I was drawing it. I thought I was just making a quick-cac for the person who was sitting in front of me. So I plan on drawing it again. I hope I remember to draw it again.

I'm waiting for a month or so because

Oh ~ I feel so excited. My husband gave me extra money to buy a new IPad Pro as my Holiday Gift/Birthday Gift. It's a super big gift that has me all excited. I don't want to make any mistakes. I want my Computer-guy to help me figure out what to buy and how to set it up. But He's in Texas, and I'm in New York. I'm planning on seeing him before the end of January. And I know just what to try for my first drawing on my new IPad Pro. I want to perfect' what I want to say with this Love-CARICATURE. I hope I will make time to draw for myself.
