you're delicious & nutritious!

Taking a break from blogland to paint my brains out and tend to life was a great idea. Had been feeling overwhelmed but now my life ducks are all in a row and WOW! I got  a lot of painting done! Completed 4 pieces. 4 more are very close to being done and I’ve started 2 others that I’m very excited about. 3 brand new pieces sit in the wings waiting to be sanded/prepped and begun; but they have already made their presence known in my heart! Very exciting!!!

I missed the camaraderie of blogland. For whatever reason I remain a lone wolf in my artistic community here; haven’t plugged in anywhere. So blogland and all You artists of SOOOO many expressions and SOOOO many ways of being are my community….and how very blessed am I!!! It’s incredible to buzz around and see so many lovely people from all over the world gifting their hearts, souls, art of many forms, humor, poetry, stories, struggle, lives, vulnerability, crazy poignant/beautiful inspiration, support and LOVE so freely!!!

I hope You All know how deeply You touch lives with Your gifts. From the simplest post to the wonderfully silliest post to the deeply profound!!!

Thank You from the bottom of my heart for making me (and everyone!!!) know we’re not alone on this journey, for reminding us of the preciousness of everything, for teaching  crazy cool science, and for opening our hearts all the more and pouring in serious joy!!! Kindred Spirits All!!!

Peace out, Rock on, Happy New Year and CHEERS!!!

      OH! Leon!!!! THANK YOU!!! When I first replied to Your comment I was in a different place on my blog and didn’t realize the video was right here!!! 😅This is WONDERFUL! Watching the complete joy radiate from Yanni as he plays is as beautiful as his composition! He absolutely captured the essence of butterflies!!! This gifted me sooo much joy and brought very happy tears to my eyes! One of my paintings I’m working on has a large Monarch butterfly in it; we’re a bit obsessed with butterflies around here!!! Thank You more than I can say!!!! I hope You have a crazy beautiful weekend!!! 🤗🦋❤️🙏🏼😊

    Welcome back, think im back too, visiting your page after a long time and wow the above painting has a life of its own. You and your paintings have always emitted positive vibes. The colors of life. Quack quack whats a life duck, I like this term I think I figured it out.
    Welcome back again, cheers, wishing you a good sunny day ahead. 🙂

      Ankit!!!! Thank You! And cool beans!!! I LOOOVEEEE that You took such a long break and that You’re back. It’s refreshing coming back, isn’t it? I was pretty blown away upon my return. A rush of concentrated WOW at everyone! You just made me laugh as it was a joke in my family to just randomly, for no reason at all yell out, “Quack!” now and again. Whoever heard it would yell back, “Moo!”. I don’t know why or how it started but I’ve not thought of that in a long time. 🤣Life ducks, or as we say here, “getting Your ducks in a row” is taking care of things. I was just getting organised with my schedule, etc. No idea where that phrase came from, but it’s a great one, isn’t it? Thank You so much for the welcome back! Welcome back to You, too!!! You know how much I love Your expression in all forms it takes! I look forward to more amazing music, films and poetry from Your brilliant corner of the world!!! Yay, Cheers and Huge hugs!!! 🤗❤️🦋🦆😊

        Quack Quack!! Good MOOoring. Two for on
        e. Life ducks, now that sounds calming. I’ve not been good at organizing my schedule properly. Things are messed up. Going back to work after a week off and…… I don’t like it. 🙂 Give it a day and I’ll be fine. Thank you dear Katy. I’ll try to hang around, active or not and keep myself updated with blogland. Because this is what I will miss and I don’t want to.

        Now with that I have a SPOILER ALERT!! Just Kidding, I’ll be uploading my new music tomorrow most probably. You know I always like to mess with things, giving everything a final touch again and again, until the day I publish it, that is why ‘MOST PROBABLY.’ Does you do this?
        TC and have a good day. 🙂

And yes….sometimes I do that; final touches again and again. Sometimes not. But….YAY! I’m so excited for You! And yeah….coming back to work after time off is always an adjustment. We just all need to win the lottery, right? 🤣Good luck wrangling Your ducks and did I say YAY?!!! 🤗❤️😊

    There is much quid pro quo on
    social media (what we here Down
    Under would call pissing in each
    other’s pockets). Despite the
    advanced technology involved, human nature still comes along
    for the ride, as postal baggage.
    Even magnified, without the brakes
    of face to face. Anonymity allows
    some to release the brakes. And,
    beware! There’s a lonely hearts
    club band out there. Desperately
    seeking a connection.
    Even demanding your attention! True. All a distraction.
    Taking valuable time away from
    your true passion.
    But still … I think to myself,
    what a wonderful WordPress 😎
    Just keep on doing what you’re
    doing, Katy. I have to remind myself
    regularly of my original purpose for
    having a blog site.
    Art for art sake …
    with a kiss of celestial bliss
    thrown into the mix.
    The social side can be a burden,
    or a bonus. It is a privilege to make
    your acquaintance, Katy 💛

      This is great, David!!! Thank You!!! You gifted my first outloud laugh of the day with those first few lines. When I said I haven’t plugged in anywhere I meant here in my real world outside of blogland, where I live….LOTS of artists and art groups are around but for whatever reason the very few times I’ve reached out it just didn’t feel right. Someday, maybe! But the camaraderie here in blogland doesn’t have pressure. We all come and go as life allows. Easy and fun….as long as I don’t get crazy about trying to stay caught up everywhere with everyone’s everything on somekind of a wacky deadline that I’ve devised myself!!! Silliness! 🤣We all do our best and I reckon we all understand that!!! And yes….I agree. Art for arts sake. It’s just fun to throw it out there. I have a rule for my art I blog. I sit to draw a post and am absolutely not allowed to judge it. I post it whether I like it or not. Very fun practice of just letting it be what it wants to be!!! And man….I sincerely meant it about blogland being nutritious! My first nite back of truly visiting everyone’s posts had me laughing, crying, in awe, smiling so huge, being inspired in ways I didn’t know I was hungry for, thinking in new perspectives…..I was on the couch drinking a glass of wine and everytime my man walked by I exploded another, “Oh my God! Check this out! Look what so and so is doing!” WONDERFULLY uplifting. And You are ALLWAYS one of those! Your New Years post brought such tears of joy and Your poetry…Good Lord. Explodes my head and heart in crazy brilliant ways. And I’m NOT pissing in Your pocket!!! Or on Your shoes or anywhere!!! 🤣Truly!!! Thank You so much for these wonderful words and great advice and for all You gift!!!! It’s truly a privilege to make Your acquaintance as well, David!!! Huge hugs and Cheers!!! 🤗❤️😊

    What a delightful post, Katy. Great to see you creating and expressing, loved the bold colors and kind words. This painting is truly wonderful–full of spirit, brightness, and liveliness. Love the basket of fruit, the pants pockets, the cat, and the rainbow of energy heart boosters. So glad you cranked out a lot of art, thanks for sharing it.
