be doers

Certainly you have attended an event with the movers and shakers and the doers of the world, have you not?
Are you a doer?  
My sister told me last month when I shared all I had going on in my world and she said, "I am not surprised, you are a doer of the world."
 I remember years ago being so inspired by another artist and friend whose work is prolific, I made a remark to her, "How do you create all this?"  She replied, "This is what I do." I shall never forget those words.
So, if you happen to be here for the first time, this is what I do and have done.
I illustrate storefronts.

I create personalized monograms.

I absolutely adore spaces, interiors as well as exteriors.

 I lost track of how many homes I have illustrated for clients and friends.
 Don't even get me started on my love for capturing canines.  If you own a pet, then you know all about the things we do for our creatures and the unconditional love they bequeath.
I do love the color green too.
 I do love Park Avenue in New York, especially in the Springtime when the esplanade is all in bloom.
 I also do oils and want to do more oils because they slow me down.
Many of my works are created to be used for custom notecards.  
I do love to write notes, send letters.

Well, like I said, I guess this sums up a bit of what I do, what I create as an artist.
This year, I look forward to doing more, more artwork, more inspiration and more design.

Tell me, are you a doer, what do you do?

an absolutely lovely piece, patricia. you have inspired me to be more of a doer.

my family, along with about 100 others, repaired and weatherized 12local homes on december 27 and 28.. it was the best "doing" I can think of and hope to do it again next year...

A Perfect Gray-
wow, love how you and 100 others joined forces to "do" for others. Now you have inspired me to do for others.

Beautiful oils (my first love)! I'm trying my hand at some flowers right now (new for me) and it's quite the challenge. Happy New Year!

You are so talented. I like that verse from James (need to familiarize myself with it this year)! I need to spring into action and 'do' more writing this year. :)

You also paint amazing flowers, PVE! We're doers to and our motto is "if you don't go, you won't know" so we're also movers and shakers! Wishing you a wonderful 2013 filled with beauty and joy.

Gorgeous work! And your reminder to be a "doer" is inspiring. Too often I get caught up in worrying about whether my work will be successful (perhaps we all do this!), when really I should just focus on my main purpose: to do the artistic work with the talents I've been given. That's what gives me the greatest reward, and it's the only part that's under my control anyway. Hope you have a very blessed new year!

I think I'm a doer, lately I seem to be a bit off track. And the economy issues have slowed me down....but I'm starting to reve up again.
I didn't know that you also painted oils. I love the floral still life.

I love all that you "do". Most of what I do is for my husband and three small girls but with some added free time this year; I plan on doing some things for myself.

Jennifer said...

I am here for the first time and love your work! I'm constantly doing. Sometimes I think I need a bit more down time as well for balance.

Brooke said...
