Find your balance in life - In a world where you can be yourself.

Mixed media - abstract & landscape

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” 
― Leonardo da Vinci

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” 
― Émile Zola

Min søsters hage har mange nydelige blomster. I går kveld kom jeg over denne vakre blomsten. Blomster gir glede, og denne oransje fargen er bare nydelig. 

Psychological Properties Of Colours

Positive: Hygiene, sterility, clarity, purity, cleanness, simplicity, sophistication, efficiency. 
Negative: Sterility, coldness, barriers, unfriendliness, elitism.

Just as black is total absorption, so white is total reflection. In effect, it reflects the full force of the spectrum into our eyes. Thus it also creates barriers, but differently from black, and it is often a strain to look at. It communicates, "Touch me not!" White is purity and, like black, uncompromising; it is clean, hygienic, and sterile. The concept of sterility can also be negative. Visually, white gives a heightened perception of space. The negative effect of white on warm colours is to make them look and feel garish.

Positive: Physical comfort, food, warmth, security, sensuality, passion, abundance, fun. 
Negative: Deprivation, frustration, frivolity, immaturity.

Since it is a combination of red and yellow, orange is stimulating and reaction to it is a combination of the physical and the emotional. It focuses our minds on issues of physical comfort - food, warmth, shelter etc. - and sensuality. It is a 'fun' colour. Negatively, it might focus on the exact opposite - deprivation. This is particularly likely when warm orange is used with black. Equally, too much orange suggests frivolity and a lack of serious intellectual values.

Lappeteppet er ferdig, kun noen utallige tråder som skal festes. 
Morsomt med glade farger. 

RED. Physical
Positive: Physical courage, strength, warmth, energy, basic survival, 'fight or flight', stimulation, masculinity, excitement. 
Negative: Defiance, aggression, visual impact, strain.

Being the longest wavelength, red is a powerful colour. Although not technically the most visible, it has the property of appearing to be nearer than it is and therefore it grabs our attention first. Hence its effectiveness in traffic lights the world over. Its effect is physical; it stimulates us and raises the pulse rate, giving the impression that time is passing faster than it is. It relates to the masculine principle and can activate the "fight or flight" instinct. Red is strong, and very basic. Pure red is the simplest colour, with no subtlety. It is stimulating and lively, very friendly. At the same time, it can be perceived as demanding and aggressive.

Det var mer garn igjen, så da blir det et teppe i fri fantasi også. Jeg er ikke noen tilhenger av oppskrifter, like nok best å eksperimentere og å se hvordan det utvikler seg. 
Kjempegøy og det gir frihet i tanker og sinn. 

YELLOW. Emotional
Positive: Optimism, confidence, self-esteem, extraversion, emotional strength, friendliness, creativity. 
Negative: Irrationality, fear, emotional fragility, depression, anxiety, suicide.

The yellow wavelength is relatively long and essentially stimulating. In this case the stimulus is emotional, therefore yellow is the strongest colour, psychologically. The right yellow will lift our spirits and our self-esteem; it is the colour of confidence and optimism. Too much of it, or the wrong tone in relation to the other tones in a colour scheme, can cause self-esteem to plummet, giving rise to fear and anxiety. Our "yellow streak" can surface.

På flere rom i huset har jeg hengende positive ord, dikt og affirmasjoner. 
Jeg velger å tenke glade og positive tanker 24/7  - det gjør dagen glad, selv når den er vanskelig. 

“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.”

Aller siste dag før pusungen flyttet. Lille Zolo (Andrea) som hun er omdøpt til vil snart bli adoptert. Ikke vanskelig å "smelte" og å bli varm om hjertet av disse skjønne "skibskattene"
To bestevenner, to søsken, to jenter, måtte de bli lykkelige for evig og alltid. 

What If?

A Poem by Ganga White

What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the Temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water—the rivers, lakes and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being

"Those who are truly non-attached do not deny the world (worldly life), they embrace it, for they feel the touch of the eternal hidden within all the changing forms of their lives. They are with everything. They are paramahaḿsa (a microcosm that has become one with the Macrocosm)."
Shrii Shrii Anandamurtijii

Wish you a wonderful new day!
Love is all there is - always!
