So I finally worked on some new art. I’d been thinking a lot about this piece, and for some reason it was really giving me grief. But I came to a conclusion: I cannot afford to be distracted anymore.
I realize now that people in your life can serve to inspire you, uplift you and make you want to be a better person, or they serve only as a distraction. I know what I want from my life. I do. I know, and I want people in my life that will uplift me; give me ideas, and help me grow. Toxic people only tend to get in the way, asking and never giving, wanting but never reciprocating that which they expect of you.
Self love means realizing this, and standing up for what it is you want in life. I want progress. So, you either move with me, or get out of my way.
I lay out my art supplies early in the morning, and do a little bit each day. It’s been working for me so far.
This piece is called, “If only he could see me”. It’s about the complexity of being a woman and tells a story of how many parts of me there are. If only you could see how wonderful I am, but alas. It is not my job to convince you that I am worthy to be held and had as your own. No. All I can do is shine, and if you cannot see my light, or do not want to commit to the person that I am, then you have your eyes closed to my worth.
This painting is 24″x24″ and is available for purchase. Simply contact me, and we can discuss a price.
Oh, and I took a fun little video on Instagram of me working on this. CLICK HERE to check it out.
