While I fish through the fridge for some night snack realizing how late it is, I decided it wasn't time to go to bed yet. My mind was going through, what we call, "over load of thoughts" just swimming back and fourth. So I felt like writing and sharing with you folks. Today was A Day when I felt I wanted to pull my hair, OH YEAH!! It was Painting Day and not one painting came out right. So I played with my cat for a while, had some tea and stared at the paintings and cried, well just a little. Then my cat went out hunting and brought me a gift, a helpless little lizard. Now, I'm screaming, ooh no! at the top of my lungs because Sammy my cat jumping, running like a maniac knocked all paints and brushes and suddenly splash, water splattered all over my paper and all because a helpless little creature. Suddenly BAM! he got it, poor little lizard DEAD! It was over. So I painted some more but my groove was stuck somewhere and I could not paint. I decided it was best to leave it alone for today and just sketch some ideas, it worked perfectly. Tomorrow is another new day! That's all folks!

Art has no rules, we artists know that. The beauty of art is expressing yourself in every level. Is a whirlpool of emotions carried into visual landscapes of dreams and reality. So take a naked canvas and spill your soul into it and have fun! Our best piece is when we discover a whole different world inside ourselves and share it to the world to see. Whether we are angry, sad or happy. It's therapeutic to Smudge the over load of stuff we feel thrown into the canvas. Beauty comes when we can see it straight in the face and accept all and conquer the next. We let go and learn to believe in our ability to create beautiful things no matter how painful some might be. Well, that's all folks!
My next show coming up on May 15th is called "The Doses Of Love." As you can see here, she is taking her daily pill which looks like a heart--her dose of love. Let me explain further: I was inspired by the changes occurring in my life now, about the inner child in me, about relationships with love ones, my relationship with life, family and my boyfriend who is my best friend. Every day I'm learning to live life beautifully without taking it too seriously--that we all have a choice to create our own destiny. So my daily dose is to see life with love and acceptance and to leave out all the little critters that tend to overshadow the light but embrace it fearlessly.

Lady Lee, is one of the best poets in Puerto Rico. She wrote the book called Love and several others. You can find her books at the Poets Passage in Old San Juan. Here she is taking a 20 min nap before she attends to her customers. I call her sleeping beauty.
