Miriam’s Art wishes all Canadians a Happy 150th Birthday! Happy Canada Day! Canada stands for freedom to me. I stand strong and free because Canada gave my parents a chance to immigrate to Canada! I have had a peaceful childhood. Free of war. Wanting nothing. A warm home and family! Thank you Canada!
People go to Yellowstone for three reasons. 1) Geysers 2) Mountains 3) Wildlife. The geysers and mountains pretty much stay …

Miriam’s Art is pleased to release her Bluebird On A Nest pastel sketch. It was painted at a time of extreme anxiety. Old demons mixed with the new.
The blue hue in the middle ground of this painting catches your eye and draws it in to the bird’s eye. The eyes of an animal are what attract you first. The foreground is the nest itself, the brown hues contrasting with the blue. The background is the wall and not well developed so as to keep the eye centered on the bird. I love the blue of the bluebird. Blue is a peaceful color and my favorite. There is a bluebird on a nest on my deck!
Old demons haunted me but it’s the new demons that are the more scary today and I fear. My painting calmed me and helped me forget for the moment. I’ll have to write more and meditate more. Meditation has helped but it is slowly bringing back bad memories.
This painting is done on Canson 98 lb paper and I don’t like the grooves in the paper. I know that pastel is supposed to be done on the sides with the more prominent groove but I don’t like it! It is an 8×10″ sketch and available framed. Please see the Buy Now! button.

Miriam is pleased to tell you about two new books that she is reading. They were recommended by her counselor.
One is Your Erroneous Zones by Wayne W. Dyer. Wayne Dyer has a doctorate in counseling psychology and has written twenty books. This book is a step by step book about stopping to listen to negative self talk and taking over our own lives. If you are plagued by worry and you fall into the same old patterns of self destructive thought then you have erroneous zones.
The other is Pulling Your Own Strings. It talks about techniques for dealing with other people and living your life as you choose. This book talks about how we can stop being a victim and take over our own lives.
I would recommend that you buy them but I haven’t read them yet. I will post a book review later.
Just a small note to wish you Happy Easter. I am hoping to keep in touch with the wordpress.com community. Please follow me to my website http://www.miriamsart.com or like below. I would really love to hear from you!
