You Are...

Image
     There are a lot of people in our lives,; some who understand why you live life the way you do, and others who (contrastly) hone overbearing opinions about how you should be living instead (yes, perhaps with your health/success in mind).       Just remember and understand that you can't please everyone, you take priority.

Writing is an Art Form too!

Image
           If you're a fellow creative you're bound to have more than one hobby. Whether it be painting, crocheting, or in today's case, writing: art and all of its forms provide us the ability to share our thoughts and feelings with the world in a way that we sometimes can only express through means of visual representation.  If you're a fellow writer, I'm sure you've heard of Wattpad. A community "where stories come alive." I myself have just recently begun writing and posting on it again, and t oday I wanted to share with you the first part of my short story "Faerie Lost."  Faerie Lost No one ever believed me when I told them about the little boy in the woods. I spotted him amongst the birch trees, just past the veranda, when out on my daily stroll through the castle garden. The workers bade their hello’s to me as I walked down the cobblestone path that spewed out from the double french doors of the mansion and followed out to the structu

Starting Next Saturday...

          As this blog grows, I want to thank you all for supporting me in its journey. I'm so grateful to announce that I am currently negotiating with fellow bloggers and collaborating on weekly guest posts.  A Ms. Andrea Geones will be posting every Saturday starting Saturday, February 26th.        If you would like to take a break from the art posts, come by for a breath of fresh air from the Californian side. Based in LA, California, Andrea is an actress by day and a student by night, working towards a degree in Nutritional Science. She's the author/co-owner of www.wordsbetweencoasts.com, where their mission states:     " We are a community committed to activism through art and conversation. Words Between Coasts strives to help people find their voices, and use storytelling to touch souls and change lives. We are the stories that matter! Exchange ideas. Share your story. Be heard."      I am so honored to have her as a guest writer, and I'm so looking forwar

Going Through My Old Art!

Image
      Welcome to another video guys! This time we'll be taking a look at some of my older pieces. Fair warning, it is a longer video (as there is a lot of art), so you might want to grab some snacks. Enjoy!      Any suggestions/ ideas/ concerns, please drop them in the comments below and I'll be happy to view/consider and address them! Next week, I'll have another feature up. I hope you'll take the time to stop by and read it. Thank You for watching! * * *     Two other paintings I found that I didn't include in the video:      This one is my absolute fave and hangs on my wall. Part of my zodiac concentration series, this model was a classmate of mine and she was a Virgo. Fun Fact: it was unintentional but the feather and the heart have a history in Egyptian culture as being a basis of means to confirm whether one was sent to heaven or not (if your heart weighed less than a feather, you were ascending). I will never sell the original (oil pastel, acrylic, watercolor

Newest Piece, Current WIP, and what's next in my Vendor Event Prep Journey!

Image
     I know the title's a mouthful, but there's a lot of ground to cover today. In the last artist feature, [see: Art With a Modern Twist ] I mentioned I would be talking about, " my newest completed piece and an update on my artistic plans in preparation for the next vendor event..."  and with this article, I'm going to do just as I promised.  If you've watched my video post [see:  Face Reveal, Amazon Products, and Room Tour ] then you saw the painting I aforementioned, however briefly.  I wanted to present a still image in this account so that we could discuss and observe it more closely. So, without further ado, may I present the piece:       I still have yet to decide on an official title, but I remember the initial feelings that went into this work while I was creating it. In its beginning stages, it was made with the idea that I was hidden or unnoticed, perhaps a mixture of both. It was abandoned for well over a year and was only recently finished. At it
