Fresco Flakes

We are no different, Ive done the same things as you. even last summer when I couldnt get my faces just like I wanted to, and the pupils were still a bit googly, but Id sell paintings anyway and feel like a fraud. Its our self esteem. that is the root problem. we think naaa, nothing good could ever come from me, and we believe it deeply. mine stemmed from my parents who think of me only as a fuck up. but I take on the voice from there. so its a habit. im used to putting myself down. but its a learned pattern. and you can quit it. but you must be vigilant. fuck art school. I went but didnt graduate. who cares. when you are 6 feet under it will not benefit you for having that degree. just live. just paint. procrastination is just another word for fear. we put off because we are afraid we wont be able to do it well, or something like that. like the negative voices in our head we deal with procrastination the same way - just do it do it fast and faster than the negative thoughts so that you cant hear them. procrastination is also our self loathing. we think we dont deserve peace so we cause chaos. I do it ALL the time. but im trying not to. its all self love. i honestly believe that. feeling critical of art is a symptom of a much bigger problem for if we truly believed we deserved peace, love, fun, etc...we wouldn't expect ourselves to be perfect at everything. we wouldnt judge our awkward moments as proof as who we are.

Here's to a brighter garden

There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin

Never mind silent fields -
Here is a little forest,
whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
where not a frOst has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright beehum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!

Youtube is doing maintenance so I put this up real quick.

Cupcake Fairy for sale!

I added Lavender oil essence to the beeswax to finish it off so the painting has a scent when you walk by it. Tascha came up with the idea but I LOVE IT. In the future I want to collect many oil scents and the collector can choose which scent to be placed, if any at all. I'm thinking yummy scents too, like cookies and cakes, or coconut oil and the beach! But the lavender on this one is dreamy and therapeutic and makes me want to take a nap. Heavenly!

Crappy Clothes Painting the Walls Art n SouL

It's official.
I need new clothes.
who's gonna love my ass in a t-shirt that says 'slimey'?
I haven't bought anything new in quite a long while cause every dime went into computer and photo equipment and art supplies but GUESS WHAT. its time.
Next weeks video will be super cool cause Im doing something different. Its going to be more like an episode of Attic Makeover as me and Melissa paint the studio! Im picking out colors now. we are drawn to buddhist orange for the walls - we are going to paint the floors black, and gold and navy/lavender for the trim. Im excited beyond belief.
Went to the bank and Diego is going to hook me up with a Merchant account so I can accept credit cards myself. I like that.
and suzi and LuLu (hopefully, I have to call the hotel first) will be at the ART & SOUL Retreat on Vendor night 7-11. I can't stay away from home for the entire retreat because Pooh gets fluids sometimes every day but I can hit vendor night. Its close to me. Anyone going?

Here is the link to the retreat in VA coming up, May 3 I think?

Vendor night is when people sell their art and stuff. Im not going to have a table I just want to go.
