Nebula In Purple

My favorite color is purple so naturally I have several paintings of nebula in purple. All three of the paintings are smaller ones, about 9" x 11" or so. I really like that all three are purple but look different. That's one of the things I love about painting nebula; you can use the same or similar colors in many paintings and yet they all look unique. 

The one thing that I have really gained from painting is a tiny view into the world of no limitations. Although I am still not always convinced of this notion, painting allows me to see a world of having no limitations and what that can come about from that kind of thinking. 

I really love the three paintings above! I hope you do something that results in things that make you really happy and loving what you did, whether its a product like a painting or the result of helped peopled.

How do you spend your non-work time? Is it all "other duties" or do you spend time doing things that you love and makes you feel good?

I love it when y'all throw out your ideas and leave some sort of comment!

Hugs! Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. I wish I could paint, or play music or be artistic in some way. That is definitely not my calling though. I still really enjoy seeing what others can do.

    With my spare time I love to volunteer. Volunteering is different than working. You cannot be fired and other volunteers tend to be happy because they are usually there because they want to be not because they have to. This makes a nice environment.
    I also enjoy watching the funny and silly youtube videos. I like having a lot of humour in my life. It makes me happy and lifts me up.

    And also, purple is my favourite colour. I know that sounds odd but it is :) (maybe I am a bit odd :) )

    1. Mike, thank you so much for leaving a comment! It is always great to see a comment on my blog!!!
      You have said before that you are not artistic, but my question is, have you tried? Many people I have worked with in my painting class have said the same thing and then turned out to be quite good painters.
      I do not think I am very artistic. I love to paint and create, but I always look at others' works and feel they have something I do not, yet I do it for myself and not for anyone else. I calms my soul and gets me excited about living all at the same time. I think you should try something artistic and see what happens. You never know, you might be an artist in waiting. :)
      Happy holidays and Happy New Year's!!

  2. Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year to You Jules, and to Nadine too!
