Hello everyone ! So much going on , its an exciting world!

Hello! Greeting & Salutations , I have missed blogging & talking to all my friends in this amazing artistic world , that I have grown to love very much & continue to love . As some of you may or may not know , I have decided to take the next step on this journey Im on , I got together with the family productions & am working on a beautiful piece , a portrait of an artist , that Im so fascinated by , her name is Amanda Sage . She calls herself a visionary artist , its a very interesting type of art that is becoming very known on the planet today . She has been mentored by Fuchs,Alex Gray, has so much life experience , she has been a wonderful muze to get to know through this documentary I've been doing about her. She has inspired me in a way , that I know that Im on the right path . I have enjoyed getting back to what I believed in ,but because of family & society have stepped away from . The truth is ; that I can't change me , I am who I am , and I have to stay who I am in order for me to succeed in my lifes mission to help the world , myself , my family.

I met Amanda at Nathans loft after a Hive show , I had heard about her threw Nathan who spoke very highly of her , he thought she was an awesome artist . So one day I asked her if she would be in my documentary about artists in Los Angeles . I got tired of everyone on the internet bagging on Los Angeles and how it had no art , so my mission is to show that this theory isn't true . I have met so many amazing artists here in lala land. I immediately scheduled time with her , so that I could get on this dream , what I didn't realize is that there was so much more that just her being an artist , it was a spiritual goddess warrior mission she is on , and her story just was like a dream , a dream I wanted to be a part of . I felt I had met Amanda for a reason . Not only for myself but for everyone to see through my lens. I realized after talking with her that I didn't know it but that I too, was on the same path as Amanda and the universe , ohala,god,goddess brought her to me to wake up!
Since spending time with her , my life has been more exciting lately than before . All these doors are opening and Im scared sometimes to walk through , thinking that Im not ready or questioning am I ? Yet I keep walking threw these doors & walking these trails , and finding that it was the best thing I could do for myself , for my lil' family.

If theres anything I can say to all the dreamers & aspiring artists in this world , is LIVE THE DREAM! Don't let family ,friends, the naysayers of the planet , make you think otherwise! Go for it! What do you gotta loose except not doing it ; but see thats the key! When you do the work to get you there , doors WILL OPEN! No joke ! I was told all the time from family , friends , naysayers , that I couldn't do it , that I was not a professional , yet I went with my own perception that I could , that I was talented , and now Im an art resident to a really cool art gallery , I meet so many cool artists that inspire me to do more . I have respect for my work that I didn't know I was worthy of that respect . Im humble for this respect , its so surreal to me , Im not use to this kind of attention .
Be who you truly are , don't let people make you dought YOU ! Im tryin' to get my lil' family understand that they need to be who they really want to be , because my daughter & her boyfriend had my grandbaby early in their lives ,after that they didn't know how to be or if what they wanted to be was good enough. They both are supported by boyfriends family , and they are not to keen on either one of them becoming artists or anything creative because they believe that this will not make them money . What I try to get them to understand is you got to love you first , then you can go on to be who you truly are meant to be! Its really that simple . Once you do that then what you want to do will come to you , and then go on from there. If a person can't decide what they want to be , then that soul will just settle for anything , possibly making that person a unhappy one. Don't be unhappy , don't settle , LIVE YOUR DREAMS!! DO IT!

Thanks for listening as always,

Maryann k / 4rm Zero!

Movement with Jamie Ridler : p

Hello everyone! Its been a while since I posted here . My life got busy,or should I say , I have chosen to be busy LOL! so it kind of got in the way of my bloggin'. Neways, I have decided to join Jamie Ridler on her monthly journey,and this month it is on "MOVEMENT". She's talking about , just getting out or just moving like on a treadmill or hiking ,walking etc. Just moving your body to make ya feel good . It does , I try to hike as much as possible. I just can't do the excerise thang , the thought of going to a gym doesn't sound fun to me . I love hiking! Thats how I move.Its a great way to get the oxygen going in your lungs , clearing your mind , its like walking meditation . The picture above is of my family & I in Big Bear again,and everytime we go out there , we make it a "MUST" to hike . The last time we hiked up here it was still dry , now fall is here and we have snow up in our Cali mountains,its exciting to see the seasons change and feel the crispy cold air on your face & see the beautiful snow.
So yeah! I will be hiking today , you should try it if you get a chance , even if its just a little bit , it will make ya feel good mentally and physically. I hope you will stop by Jamies blog & join us in "MOVEMENT" it will make ya feel good & all the gals who participate are awesome!

Thanks for listening , it means alot. : )

until next time,
