Open to seeing

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
— Henry David Thoreau

When I look at this painting I can see my own emotions reflected back at me. Seeing the truth of our own behavior illuminates our journey towards liberation. Lets open to seeing and intuitively recognize and trust our higher-self leading us to our full potential..

Squirrel's lucky day

While I was looking through my computer's files, I came across this funny video I took at home last September 2012. We brought some almonds from Spain which we picked up from an almond tree we have in our house over there; and following my mother advice, on our return to London, I placed the almonds on top of some newspaper pages for the almonds to fully dry outside in the garden.. By the third day I noticed that most of the almonds had disappeared, only to realize that they were being eaten by a lovely squirrel (I love these little creatures)... I couldn't believe this would happen, I never thought of it..., silly me!!... There are a lot of squirrels in London, but I didn't recall to see them in our street, I guess I never had almonds laid on our garden's ground before... ha, ha, ha, ha...

Sorry for the poor quality of this video. It was taken through the kitchen glass on my iphone, 
I didn't want to loss this magic moment.

We know that patience and persistence is the perfect combination for successful squirrels.. Yes, this squirrel kept coming back and every time was finding something... 

"A wise squirrel said once: One minute of patience can result in ten years' worth of nuts"

I also like squirrels because I believe they have fun in what they are doing... I enjoyed these few days watching this squirrel coming back.. I found their movements so enchanting, synchronized and precised.. Absolutely magical..

So, here is my sketch I did yesterday on the squirrel's honor... :-) :-) :-)...

Again, I forgot to take pictures between watches for you to follow the process, but it was so spontaneous and quick that I just did not think of it... Sorry!... :-(

THREE art works to GIVE AWAY - You choose

THREE are works to GIVE AWAY – You choose …

I am very grateful to all the readers out there, not only for your continuous interest, but also for your continuous patience, yes, patience because due to my everyday life commitments (working in an office four days, a mother and a house wife…), I hardly have time to dedicate to my blog and my art, in a more consistency basis.. As you know, I still try to write every week, but sometimes is just impossible…. 

So, once again, thank you all for your patience and for being there in the 'Ciber world' reading my posts… I feel so GRATEFUL…

In gratitude, I would like to give away Three of my paintings.   Please leave a comment and tell me the name of the painting you would like to have… Don't forget: First come first served... 

(As you noticed I have changed the wording of this post, as I was made aware that the subscribing facility was not working...)

Here below are the images you can chose from, which are practically most of the paintings that have accompanied my posts, since I started blogging, back in July 2012…
