Look For Hidden Blessings

At the beginning of 2016 I published my first art book.  This book is a collection of my watercolor paintings accompanied by a story from my life and personal experience from my journey on being an artist.  I’m excited to share this with you over the next year. I realize that not every day is a good day, but that doesn’t mean that good things don’t happen every day! During […]

Debi Payne Business Card

Artist, Dreamer, Eternal Optimist: Business Card Designs

Most people who have a job or business have a business card. That card usually has such information as the company name and contact information. It also has the person’s name and their position or title. To me the most interesting part of a business card is the position or title. Some of these positions and titles are typical like, President, Account Manager, Administrative Assistant, etc. Several years ago I […]

  Change doesn’t always come with options. When a loved one dies, you usually don’t have an option. When you get older and your body goes through different changes, you don’t always have an option with that one either. However, I am talking about changing my art and with that I am finding an abundance of options. As for the types of art I can make, I am finding the […]

Change is a funny little thing! Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is not so good. There are subtle changes that come along with nature such as the changes our bodies go through. It seems like with every 10 years of age there comes some sort of physical change that my body has gone through, which usually hasn’t been something to brag about. On the other hand, when I […]

Don’t Give Up!

Every project that I create is special to me, however from time to time I create a project that is really extra special to me. This is one of those very extra special projects that I am really excited about and proud of. I have created many watercolor paintings with sayings that I have posted on Facebook and Instagram. For this project I wanted to take 50 of these paintings […]

Accomplishment Journal

I am all about getting things done and having accomplishments. Every night after I go to bed and before I go to sleep, in my mind I list five things that I am grateful for. Then I list five things that I accomplished that day. And then I think about my goal. Since I started this practice I have noticed how much more I accomplish every day. Granted, most of […]

Every Day

We have all had what seems to be a bad day. One of those days that seem to last forever. One of those days that seem to never end. Actually our days are never filled with bad things or good things. Our days are simply made up of ‘things’. How we perceive these ‘things’ will determine if they are bad or good. Even if our day is filled with things […]

Define Your History

One of the things that I think about a lot is, “what am I leaving behind?” By this I mean, when I am dead and gone what have I done in my life time will remain in this world once I am gone. Once I was asked what I wanted to do with my life. My answer was, “I want to create something that when I die little pieces of […]

Drama All Around

I must admit, I don’t like drama! What strikes me funny is how many people say that they don’t like drama, but they are the ones in the middle of it and stirring it up. I have gone to a movie, paid for a ticket, went in, sat down and started watching the movie. I didn’t like the movie, so I got up and walked out. I am the same […]

Biggest Obstacles

We all go through times when life presents us with a new opportunity or challenge and our minds immediately start playing out all of the “what if” scenarios. ‘What is the bad thing happens?’ Or ‘What if that problem occurs?’ We have all done this. The trick is to be able to stop your mind for all the negative thoughts and turn them to positive thoughts. If you start turn […]
