The Olympic's will be starting soon.
I can hardly wait. It is seriously the only time when I plan my schedule to sit and watch TV.
I think I may have to look up some recipes from 
Rio de Janeiro
Here is a link to get you ready for the summer Olympic's.

All about New York City

The Big Apple

New York City
smarts game

Question:All of these edibles first appeared in New York .
A. Chewing gum
B. Pizza slices
C. Bagels
D. Egg creams

C. Bagels
The bagel, now so thoroughly associated with New York that most people think you can't get a good one outside the city, originated in Germany in the 14th century and made its American debut in Philadelphia. Chewing gum was invented in New York in 1870. Pizza sold by the slice is also a New York innovation. And egg creams, fugeddabout it!! These delicious concoctions of chocolate syrup, mild and seltzer began in Brooklyn around the turn of the century. 

I was fooled!! I thought for sure the Bagel came from New York.
This was an interesting history of the foods I do enjoy even living in Nevada.

A drawing from the Soul

Jean Hart Artwork 

Be Kind, Be caring, Be Compassionate 
To Yourself 

One line drawing

We all have a song in us. Maybe even a poem.
But what I feel inside myself is that I will always have a drawing inside myself.
If you were to take a pencil and listen to inspirational music and just start moving the pencil along.
What do you think you would draw?
I think it is something from your soul.
I believe when you do this little exercise you will be surprised to see that you have created something from deep down in your heart. 
The point of this exercise is to not let the pencil come off the page.
You can listen to music and close your eyes and just let your hand be guided or you can purposely make a drawing. The one rule is not to leave the pencil/paper connection.
After you are done with your masterpiece, fill it in if you wish,

The feel of Fall

Jean Hart Artwork 

This weeks Art O Mat blocks shipping out.
It's kind of hard to paint for Fall when the Summer temperatures are in the high 90's.
It reminds me of an interview I heard with Elvis; 
he was singing a Christmas song in July.
 He asked to have snow falling in the studio, just to get him in the mood!!
I should probably go make some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. 
You know, just to get in the mood.

Be Kind, Be caring, Be compassionate to yourself

Oh, to fall in love.....
It's not for just a person, but with your life.
Open your heart, love is in front of you not behind you.
It's possibilities, opportunities, and chances.
Open the door, step out into the world.
Love is out there.

What will you do today to make memories?

It's a sure thing

Jean Hart Artwork 

"If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live."
 Lin Yutang.

Brownies.....the thing I love about cooking in the kitchen,  is that after its made I find everyone in the kitchen with me. It's a sure thing when I find nothing in life to be that sure. 
Picnic's are not always a sure thing...but when they happen they are magical. So, when I find myself away from home doing the unusual things I have to remember how special the day is. 
What will you be doing today?

It's never too late to become an artist

Art instruction

It's never too late to learn to paint.
It's summer here, lets get the paints out and get messy outside.
"Every artist was first an amateur."
Don't judge or compare your work with anyone else.
It's time to paint like you  did when you were a young child.
Without limits.
Mix those colors. Paint the sky, the tress, the cat.
Just get started and you will see how fun painting can be.
If you want to get serious, take a class.

an ounce of prevention

Jean Hart Artwork 

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."  Proverb

So, it's never too late to get moving, and lose weight.
Getting health starts at any age. 
However, it's probably better to get started before a major life change is needed. 
What is your motivation to get moving?

To start again

Jean Hart Artwork 

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." Albert Einstein

Oh, that painting did work out, or the project that looked so good in your head didn't exactly turn out. 
It happens.
But don't give up.
I paint more paintings that no ones sees then the paintings that I put out here.
Every painting is a learning experience.
Keep the things that did turn out right, and lose the technique that didn't.
No, it's not fun, but it is the process.
It's never too late to start again.

Planning, plotting, and engaging

Soul Song, acrylic, Jean Hart
"The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life. " 
William Morris 
 Do you ever feel like things have passed you by, that it might be too late to do something you were dreaming about? 
I think It's never too late for most things. 
Making plans, is one of my favorite things to do.
Looking forward to events, trips, visits can help you get through a hard day.
With something to look forward to, kinda gives you hope.
If planning sounds hard or not sure where to start. 
Start small, simple, just plan out one day at a time.
Later, you can plan for a whole week, or even a month.
The bigger your plans get the more time you will need for the preparing. 
So, think ahead, plan with care, and have fun.
I'm planning to enter two art judged and jury art shows this Fall.
I have to start planning now because first, they each have separate themes and second, I want to go to the receptions and they are both out of town.

What my Soul wants me to Know

Jean Hart Artwork
What my Soul Wants me to Know
Soul coaching 
by Denise Linn 

Today's card is 
"I embrace and love all of my life."

Once again the perfect card has come to me.
Card meaning: embrace all of your life, both the dark and the light. 
"The path to wholeness is through accepting and embracing all parts of yourself. 
Every experience you've had, even the ones that you thought were bad, was important for your spiritual journey. "

Of course, we are everything we have choosen up to this time.
My embracing has come at the beginning of the year when I wrote on my 2016 journal.
Title page: This will be the best year of my life.
How does that come to past? 
Planning, plotting, engaging, and embracing life. 
I have more peace this year by moving physically.
Not so much physical exercise but planning each day to accomplishing tasks. (Tasks, things that were important to me to make my life better.)
Because the last couple of years have been more about physical therapy, having only a few steps for each day meant I had to plan how I would spend them. 
I didn't want that to be the only movement I did this year.
 I have embraced chores. 
For me right now there is nothing better then first, a clean home, 
second, a organized home, and thirdly, having more time because I have taken care of my home.
I can now truly say this affirmation with complete honesty.
"I embrace and love all of my life." 
What part of your life are you embracing? 
If you were not raised by Martha Stewart I found this website helpful.
