I don't know much about being a millionaire, but I'll bet I'd be darling at it!
A great quote for today! My oil painting"STARCARBON" found in the Covers & Illustrations section of my web, says a lot about the feeling of abundance inspired by having fun with your imagination. Sometimes, the most important thing to do is to become a money magnet. I chose the purse and shoes in this painting as symbols of wealth and stability while connecting to the abundant flow and majesty of the universe. Taking the time to observe and feel grateful can change your life.....
I chose the name 'STARCARBON" from an article in a scientific journal about how we all have a piece of the stars in every cell, and how on the cellular level, we reflect the majesty and magic of the Universe.

My golden sunflower tree is in full bloom, the bright yellow flowers peaking over the fence of my neighbors.. they asked me if the flowers seed so they could plant a tree of their own. I told them it is much simpler than that, all you have to do is take a good cutting, place it in a jar of water outside, then when it takes root, re-plant in a pot until it outgrows the pot then plant in a good sunny spot, preferably in the area for ABUNDANCE in your garden, according to compass style feng shui. A book I highly recommend to learn about this effective ancient science is "LILLIAN TOO'S EASY-TO-USE-FENG SHUI" www.lillian-too.com
Today is the day for extreme GRATITUDE! In the book and movie "THE SECRET" the ancient truth is revealed that we attract what we focus on, and today is a beautiful day for enjoyment, family, even extended family......let us allow the universe to bring us the love, joy, and abundance we so richly deserve, and so it is!
The painting of "ARCHANGEL MICHAEL", oil on canvas, represents love of self and love of planet earth....Visit My Website

In this world without quiet corners, there can be no easy escapes...
from hullabaloo, from terrible, unquiet fuss.
- SALMAN RUSHDIE
I love that quote! It applies to this Monday's frantic feeling......
Reading has always been a great escape from the world for me. I just so love Marilyn reading and talking on the telephone in her Pucci mirror blouse. She made this blouse famous throughout the whole world. In this first drawing I start my series of "WOMAN UNCHAINED" I have the canvas picked out and it fits perfectly. I still will decide about the pucci panels and how the painting fits with the decorative panels I have been doing lately.
Marilyn also made it cool to wear spectacles and to read literature. People forget that about her. Part of what this painting is about is her feminity, beauty and sexiness combined with a natural and innocent quality of curiosity and playfullness.Visit My Website

I have many thoughts which roam around this rattletrap brain of mine, filled with treasures and spider-webs from disuse, but the sunlight shining through the window of the croweded attic of my house-brain illuminates the beautiful objects and rare memories to be found there.......
When I first moved to Boca Raton, I fell in love with the Japanese culture that still exists here. I visited the MORIKAMI MUSEUM in Delray many times and nine years ago, anyone could bring a picnic and use the redwood tables and barbeque pits, under the towering pines and soft carpet of the forest and dine like Gods & Goddesses. Later, after lunch, one could wander off down to the pond where carp swam in golden iridescent shimmers and tortoises lazily basked in the glimmering waters. It was all free, the land donated by Mr. Morikami to the city of Delray. Part of his ashes are buried there and part in Osaka. Thank you, Mr. Morikami!
A beautiful waterfall splashes in abandon down the rocks and I find inspiration there, and love.... here is.....
"GEISHA WITH RAINBOW"
A painting about ABUNDANCE and the universe within. Here is one of my Geisha's,my tribute to the lovely Japanese culture, how they honor grace and beauty, tranquility and PEACE

Monday morning is almost over.... that is a very good thing I think, because this Monday they changed the time on us again away from Daylight Savings, we are now dark at 5pm and I find it VERY inconventient to have my neighbors taking out their garbage VERY noisily at 7 am this morning!
ANYWAY, I chose "Compassion" as my image this morning. For this week, I will try to remember at all times to be compassionate to those other struggling human "beans" on this planet Earth and gratitude, gratitude, gratitude!

This morning awoke TOO EARLY to the sound of the grass being cut, weed whackers, leaf blowers.....?!
I would love to have awoken to the sound of birds singing as usual. Now I know I will appreciate tomorrow morning, when I can awake to a more pleasant sound of birds and the sun shining. finally, after many days of rain and wind. GOOD MORNING! to all, have a great weekend, and enjoy Mother Earth this weekend, take time to give thanks and be grateful for this beautiful planet Earth.
I hope to start painting on my new project 'WOMAN UNCHAINED' this weekend, and to having fun with it.
