Illustration Friday: pattern

This is one of my acrylic paintings. I wonder if you would like to guess which one is the original.

This week: I received a phone call yesterday from the nurse in the Health Center. She has found an exercise buddy for me:) It's getting colder and colder over here now, the colors are changing and I like what I am seeing. It was so windy the other day and all the fallen leaves have covered my body while I was walking in the streets with lots of trees, and then the bus passed by and it was lifted....uhmmmm autumn weather.

Do you also feel the same way I do sometimes where I become (maybe)sentimental?..... like there's a certain moment, or place or weather where I feel like it happened before but there's no exact memory on what it was.....I like the feeling somehow, like I feel there's something special about it...and then I get annoyed because I cannot remember what it us.....some of the examples---when it just rained, I like the smell and the water from the leaves or trees.....some place when it's so quiet and all I can hear was the humming of the birds.....or when I was drinking coffee on a dimlighted room.....the ticking of the clock.....the train passing by.....curling up on the bed smelling the linens where I can also see the full moon from the bedroom window.....gosh, this must be loneliness.

Illustration Friday: Infinite

One of the weirdest dreams I had was when I was standing in the middle of the street and it was raining immeasurably with hand gloves, different textiles, texture and colors. Surprisingly, I was not afraid in my dream but I was smiling because the gloves when it’s near to touching the pavement went up again and it was like magic. I know something happened after that but I cannot remember the rest. I never liked wearing hand gloves but I have to wear them during winter and yet, I do take good care of them very well and I really felt bad when I lost the very first one I had.

Have a nice weekend everyone. Take good care all of you and keep smiling eventhough your heart is breaking sometimes....

Illustration Friday: Welcome

"Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile."

"Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.”--Og Mandino

strong wind

Illustration Friday: strong
"Sometimes, it's not only holding on that makes one strong- sometimes it's letting go."
"Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are."--Arthur Golden
