We can choose to be stuck in the negative energy that currently prevails or we can choose to take a walk in the great outdoors – where we can breath fresh air and enjoy nature’s bounty.

watercolour/gouache – autumn colours

We can choose to turn off the constantly depressing and repetitive news or we can choose to put on some beautiful and uplifting music.


We can choose to be a couch potato or not!

We can choose to smile at those we encounter or not

We can choose to say thank you or not……..

The landscape takes on a moody quality…….watercolur/gouache

No matter what our circumstances we can make choices. There is no question that it is easier for some than others, but even the smallest choice can change our day and the way we feel.

When autumn approaches the heart begins to dream….

it’s a wonderful time to ignite our creative energy

    What a joy to be graced by your vibrant and energized watercolors, Janet. You sure know how to do color. Each one, a lovely image with so much movement, and then that final one with the pulsating hummingbirds is exquisite. Cheers to you.

    I am glad you reminded me, we always have a choice.To have good will & acceptance or the trials we have.And to help those who are much worse off with donations
