After days of hibernating undercover, listlessly waiting for the cold and snow to stop, I am back in the studio.  Sometimes melancholy runs deep when I am tired and my energy is spent.  After weeks of cold and snow, ice storms, sleet and long days of travel it felt good to wrap myself in warmth and deepness.

Thoughts run deep during this period……this is when I hear that deep small voice of my God, gently nudging me back to life.  This is when my thankfulness is deep within my heart.  This is the place where my dreams materialize into thoughts and actions.  This is where I become energized and my creativeness begins to blossom again.

Today I stepped back into the studio, and creating called me, it spewed forth.  It sang the deep song that I had nurtured all those days.  I am back……

Juggling……. Life.

CIRCUS ACT

“Circus Act” 24″ X 24″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas http://www.pameladunmirefineart.com

Sometimes I have so much to do that I feel like a Juggler in the Circus; precariously positioned on a box, with both hands grabbing for all the different balls I have put into place.  I envisioned when I stepped into the entrepreneurial arena, that time would be my own to decide.  But that ain’t necessarily so…….  Deadlines that others impose, pressures I put upon my self… and of course the family that I sometimes feel I disappoint.  Am I standing in a three ring circus, or do I just not have that time management thing down pat?

Wait a minute….. I asked for this…… didn’t I say I wanted to be a working artist.

What I have come to realize is that when I step into the studio, and create from my heart…… and not let others influence my creativity, time is not a problem.  I create my own time…. there is always enough.  Now as the Juggler, my performance is flawless, my act is creative, I am the star.

Each day when I set my intention to do everything from a heart centered self, with God as my compass; the juggling becomes easy, the balls stay in the air till that perfect execution of time, when they fall easily into my hands.

Yes….. I am a Circus Act, and the Star to boot….

Chasing the Dream……

“Chasing the Dream” 36″ x 36″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas http://www.pameladunmirefineart.com

I just came back from an incredible week-long workshop with Jeanne Bessette, in Raleigh, NC.  WOW, all heart and inner work…. Kinda Scary, right, but all so revealing…. I discovered the REAL ME…

What a wonderful freeing moment to find the true, unaltered, depth of the soul me. To discover, that much of what I was chasing in life was actually someones else agenda. As I looked at a person’s life and would think, I want that…don’t they look happy, aren’t they rich and famous.  I was chasing their dreams.  No wonder I was treading water, when I was trying to swim a marathon.

One must find their own journey through life, one that suits them down to their bones; one that leaves them sobbing with fear and excitement. The goosebumps just popped….. That’s the feeling you want…

During my week-long transformation I created many soul-searching paintings.  “Chasing the Dream” above, was that break through piece that switched the energy level from mildly excited to Holy Moly…. I got this.

Chase your true bone defining, goosebumps popping dream and step into it.  Your peeps will find you.

That perfect love.

"Perfect Love"   In a private collection. http://www.pameladunmirestudios.com

“Perfect Love”
http://www.pameladunmirefineart.com

Well here it is Valentines Day, that time of year when we publicly avow our love to those we hold dear.  Or maybe it is a commercial endeavor by the greeting card and candy companies.

Many of you are singles, for various reasons and Valentines can be difficult…..  Or we have had a heartbreaking experience that makes Valentines an awful anniversary.

It took me many years to appreciate Valentines….. Once I learned to love myself, forgive others and discover the perfect love; I began to truly understand this day.  My perfect love is Christ centered. A love that comes from deep in to all humanity; even those I don’t like I try to love.

It’s hard to love our enemies, how about ISIS, the epitome of evil, or the person down the street who isn’t like me. Or that pesky person who tries to get me to think their way.  How can you love someone like them?

God tells us to love our enemies and to forgive our enemies, I try each day during meditation to send blessings though out the world especially those places and to those people who I find difficult to love.

Those who may find blessings may learn to love, may themselves begin to forgive, and turn away from evil.  They may learn to accept others put down their swords or barbed tongues and love in peace.

Today I wish all of you a perfect love, and many blessings on this Valentines Day.

Some days you awake mired in problems, wanting to reveal your true self, but afraid to move forward.  Fear takes over, for no good reason and unmet dreams fade away.

We have all had days like this, where no matter what you try, you feel stuck.  As an artist, this happens frequently….. I have repainted a canvas, so many times it becomes heavy.  It is usually my fear of failure rearing it’s ugly head.  Instead of joyously walking into the studio for a day of experimentation, I conjure up self-talk, “I have to produce that perfect painting”.

When I stop and let go…. feel the presence of God…..and tap into my own energy that is when I can push forward and create from my soul.

This doesn’t just happen in the studio, it can happen in everyday life.  Find your center, connect with God and lean into your true energy and you can accomplish what ever you desire.  Try Pushing Forward.
