Cougar 5" x 7" Oil Painting
Food for Thought

"We would have much peace
if we would not busy ourseves with
the saying and doings of others."
-Thomas A Kempis

This quote is from a book that I am reading for the fourth time by
Lama Surya Das
"Awaking The Budda Within"
My BA degree in religious studies always
leads me to the spiritual readings.
On the 19 I was graced to have an 8 hour Christmas
Meditation, which I do every year. It is a wonderful
way to enjoy this time of year.

Mustang Run Oil Painting by MJ Zorad


Abstract Horse Painting
Oil Painting
15" x 30" Oil on Canvas

Mary Jo Zorad
In the next dew days we will be rebuilding our new professional greenhouse, with metal framing and uvh resistant covering. Little did we know that the ground needs leveling and it must be completely squared. Luckily our neighbor is a retired contractor and knows the ropes and has agreed to help. All our neighbors are great. Last year when we had the huge snow storm that dumped over 15 inches n a couple of days another neighbor with a tractor came to plow our driveway. It is over 250 feet long and it was impossible to get out. According to the Farmers Almanac it will be a dryer and warmer winter, however, the fall is slated to be a wet one. Sometimes I long for the warm winter months of Los Angeles my first home. It's all good though. This painting is an abstract with the Wild Mustang running. I promise to post more of my painting this month. Somehow last month got away from me with the postings. If you are interested in something similar please contact me.

Fall is in the air today in the Pacific Northwest. A perfect day to meander on our property enjoying the cooler air nature’s beauty. Yesterday we again were reminded why the street is named coyote. In mid afternoon the fire sirens blasted down the main street and oh my did the coyotes howl. There is a traveling den in the neighborhood. They're back on the wetland property behind our fence. So close that the dogs are not happy, doing their own howling and barking. It is a bit unnerving listening to the howling sounds in mid afternoon. It has inspired me to work on finishing my wolf wildlife painting started a while ago. Today’s art of an Arabian horse abstract style commission painting has taken may forms. I like the earth tones of this painting.

The world is but a canvas to the imagination.
Thought moves.
Thought is a living dynamic force.
Thought is a thing.
If you allow your mind to dwell on a sublime thought
this thought will attract good thoughts from others.

Last nights susnset from my front porch. You can see a bit of the front pastures that we use for the horses and now our organic garden. Thoughts of the day.
All you ever have to do to change absolutely everything, is think differently.

But this you have to do.
More paintings tomorrow.

Daily thoughts from my readings last night.
Release the past. Let it wash away.Take back your own power.
Stop dwelling on what you don't want. Use your mind to create what you do want.
Let your self flow with the tide of life. LH

Kito and Angel


It is so funny. Every time Kito (Rhodesian Ridgeback) sees Angel on the other side of the fence she charges the fence barking. Angle just stands there and when they meet at the fence they smell and go their merry ways.
