Winter in july
wish fulfilment through art. does it work? it certainly has this time! i painted this last week at the height of heat and humidity hoping things would cool down and this week my wish came true!!!
i showed this painting to the hubby and asked what he thought of the white bits and he honest to god said "dandruff?" i may have thrown a little tantrum but once i calmed down i educated him about how it's the little details (like the "dandruff") that adds interest to the look of the piece.
he looked at me with the same look i give him when he starts talking about international relations and conflict resolution 😫💤💤💤😆😆😆
brushes used: winsor and newton size 0 round, size 4 round, size 0 rigger, size 10 mop
When one of your november #liveweddingpainting couples requests the perfect piece for their dining room, you jump!! 🎨🌸🌸🌸
b + m are getting married at one of dc's most spectacular venues in just a few short weeks (squee) and loved a particular cherry blossom postcard i sent out last year. they requested that scene of the thomas jefferson memorial but on a more grand scale (48x30" to be precise)! and mannnn did i have fun with this one.
and pssstttt....did you know most of this beauty is finger painted? 😘
thank you b + m for trusting me to create a scene of a time of year that happens to be super important to me as well. can't wait to live paint your incredible day super soon!!
fun fact: don't hesitate to reach out should you ever love a non-wedding custom painting! tons of fun, tons of pretty...and helps keep my brain sharp 😘
“look at the cherry blossoms! their color and scent fall with them, are gone forever, yet mindless the spring comes again.”ikkyu... cherry blossom painting... not that perfect but it was a good try 🤗
i had a play with adding colour today in procreate. starting with black and white and recolouring and playing with the filters. lots of fun.
there's really nothing serious going on here, since the prompt was ornament i just went with some pretty stuff, cause why not? ornaments are supposed to make you smile right? they are there to make the place look good... doesn't mean this one doesn't have something to day, and i'm pretty sure she's about to say it too.
i think in this case the pretty face and flowers are a trap.
beware, all ye who enter here. 😏
This gorgeous piece was commissioned by a client who loved my earlier cherry blossom piece, but who is far from being an “all things pink” kinda gal. she wanted a replication of the original style, but in her favourite colour palette. i have to say, i adore the ethereal, wintery quality her colours lend this one!
Hopping on the #artvsartist bandwagon 🎨 swipe to see the previous #artvartist post from february of this year. i really like to make these and look at how much i have improved! my style has developed immensely over the last couple of months (all thanks to ap art) and i’m hecka grateful hehe. which picture is your favorite? 🍂🍁

Adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform b****t self-exams at least once a month!
shower 🚿 :
using the pads of your fingers, move around your entire b****t in a circular pattern moving from the outside to the center, checking the entire b****t and armpit area. check both b*****s each month feeling for any lump, thickening, or hardened knot. notice any changes and get lumps evaluated by your healthcare provider.
mirror 🤳🏻 :
visually inspect your b*****s with your arms at your sides. next, raise your arms high overhead.
look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, or dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. next, rest your palms on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. left and right b*****s will not exactly match—few women’s b*****s do, so look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.
in bed 🛌 :
when lying down, the b****t tissue spreads out evenly along the chest wall. place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right b****t gently in small circular motions covering the entire b****t area and armpit.
use light, medium, and firm pressure. squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps. repeat these steps for your left breast.

"i am an air bender"
developing a new piece....this gun be a tough one.
i like it when i actually sit down and pour the visions in my eyes onto paper.
im trying to develop a habit by adressing a blank sheet of paper as a reflection of how i process life...it is much needed that i flow the way my soul has always known and to diminish the self-standards i keep(they r unrealitistic too high), created by external expectations & judgement. i am who i am and no one needs to have an opinion about myself but my authenticity.
