My paintings and creative arts

Painting is the easiest and most fun thing for me to do in life. If only I can do that at all times, that would be success and happiness. I need much support to help me so that I can paint at least...


β€œTo create art with all the passion in one's soul is to live art with all the beauty in one's heart.” ― Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry


Arts carry your soul through the wilderness of silence and love....And in there one can never go wrong and sin....In your silence, you commune with nature and find God within your heart...You cannot hurt anyone nor sin against man because your love for nature, silence, and aloneness cannot pull your energy to the negative traits of the world....You forget hurt and pain, you shun away from gossip and criticism, and most of all, you are in a world that only love knows....


I started painting at the age of 7 until 19 years old. Just any kind of painting I could think of such as; flowers, houses, trees, and etc. But then I stopped when I was raising my kids. Though I continued on my crafts such as crochet, embroidery and sewing and journal keeping here and there....But nothing hooks me like painting...Two decades later and an empty nester, I bought brushes and paints that are on sale and almost give away prices, for no reason. I kept them aside and continued working as a Realtor in San Antonio, Texas...Suddenly I had the feeling of stopping everything and not wanting to do anything. When I kept looking at my arts supplies, I just started painting a little at a time. My two girls studied arts in college and one took computer graphics. These two have been my critiques and teachers since then. They are my ideal mentor as they are better artist than I am. Though now in their child rearing years of their time, they shove away arts and just teach their children about it...I gave these grandchildren supplies as well as they have manifested signs of future art lovers...Maybe one day too, they will explore more of what is within them, in their soul...One day. And as for me, I will keep on exploring and sharing my thoughts and love with you all...I have never enjoyed my time ever since before I had these new found love. Now I paint because I cannot help it but have to paint some more. And when I do, I can feel all my tiredness, worries and sadness slipping away....So here I am. Thank you for liking my page. This is your way of encouraging me to keep doing it. I pray I have more time to keep doing this....I love you for supporting me and your kindness propels me to keep on. Thank you so much. God bless us all.
