You have probably heard the saying, when life gives you lemons make lemonade. I just try to think positive as much as I can to make life easier to accept the things that go not quite according to plan. I know of a great book that can help you think positive that I would like to share with you. The book is The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. An international bestseller with over five million copies in print, The Power of Positive Thinking has helped men and women around the world to achieve fulfillment in their lives through Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s powerful message of faith and inspiration.
Being a painter, there is one more thing I thought to do. When life gives you lemons….paint them!!

I come from an artistic family. My grandfather was a painter and a photographer, so it was not unusual that I made my profession in the art field. I specialize in oil portraiture, but also love to do other paintings and drawing such as still life and landscape. Here are a few of my private portrait examples.

I take photos of the paintings I do to upload to my main web site (pattitrostle.com) and photos to my Etsy shop and other places I sell paintings, prints etc. online. I am also starting to put some photos here on this blog. More often than not, I like to use my iphone to take my photos. The quality of the iphone cameras, and cameras by other companies are really improving! I have a DSL camera with a great tripod, but it just seems so much more convenient to take the pics with my iphone. This is a great tripod for you if you want to keep your phone steady while taking photos. Have you ever taken photos only for them to be blurry due to your hand shaking? I know I have. A tripod is great when you are trying to adjust the lighting for your subject. You can just keep the camera in one place and don’t have to guess if your setup with lighting etc. is correct. So much easier! A tripod cuts down on frustration and stress!! This tripod is compatible with smartphones, Gopro, cameras. This would make a great gift or gifts for someone you know!

via Daily Prompt: Nervous
Hi everyone! Here on wordpress they have daily prompts. This is something the “WordPress People” would like for us to blog about. So….here goes!
Nervous…why are you nervous? Is it your health..finances..an important meeting you may be nervous about? There could be many things in this crazy world that could make a person nervous! Here is one thing that makes me nervous at times. Not having enough time to get everything done that I want to do! There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day for everything. As I said before, I am an artist. I sometimes have deadlines for commission work. I do a lot of oil portraits. I am especially busy around holiday times. Sooo….how do I handle my time space to get my work done you may ask? Well I try to stay on schedule. I repeat..TRY. Haha! Sometimes things just don’t work out the way I want it to when something unexpected comes up. That’s just life! Here are a few thing that help keep me balanced. Maybe these tips will help you also!
. Schedule – -Try to keep to a schedule as much as possible
.Eat right – Keep the caffeine to a low level if possible. (I love coffee!)
. Exercise – I can’t stress this enough! Exercise can really really help not
only with physical health, but as I said in my last blog it
really helps emotionally. Just a short walk out in the fresh
air helps tremendously!
. Sleep —– If possible, try to get 8 hours of sleep. I know..that is
sometimes hard to do. Eating right and exercise helps with
. Water —– It is very important to drink, hopefully 8 16 ounces of water
daily. It is important to keep hydrated!
. Write —– Write down your nervous thoughts. This can help relax you at
a least a little, and you just may see in writing your problem
is not that big of a deal in the scheme of things!
. Visualize – Visualize a happy place! Is it a beach..a walk in the woods? Go to your happy place!
These are just a few things to help keep stress levels a little lower.
I hope you follow at least some of this advice and I wish you good health and don’t stress the small stuff!!

Who am I? I am an artist that takes my health serious! If I am not healthy mentally and physically, I personally can not do the painting/art I love to do! One thing that helps me is to exercise, along with healthy eating. Yoga is a great way to keep me excited about creating and being able to do my work! I believe yoga is great for mental and physical relaxation. It can help provide the strength do be able to keep up with ordinary daily routines that can sometimes be hectic. I can tell a big difference if I slack off my healthy routine! I hope you will do your best to practice a healthy lifestyle! Try out this DVD and see if it doesn’t help you lead a healthier life!
I will be adding to this blog, tips on healthy eating in the future. I hope you will follow my blog to get healthy mind and body health tips often!
I can’t tell you how much I love these yoga pants. The flare leg makes it not only a great workout pant, but looks great for going out for everyday errands etc. Pair them with a great top or blazer and you have a great dressy look also!
This would also make a great gift for someone you know!
