The Stillness of Clouds

Often we do not think of clouds being all that still. But they are. They are quiet and still. They move, perhaps when they have to. They never go back. But they sit in this blessed peace that we as humans long for so very much.

I made a new spread in my journal. I posted a video on YouTube:

 

The supplies I used are:

On Seeing Ghosts

 


The year was 1993. I was sixteen years old. I’d woken up one particular morning, and had a dream that I decided to tell my mother about. I’d dreamt I was getting married. My mother replied to me, saying, “Oh no. That means someone in the family is going to die soon.”

The Echoes Once Felt

 

“Where my fortune lies”
Mixed media on canvas. Please contact me for price details.

Therein lie the echoes

the echoes of what once was, what

used to be

good and fair and kind

somehow faded into different colors of

what can now be called echoes

this used to be a place where beauty lay

now I must gather my things and

see just where my fortune lies

Tiny little art journals

So, if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I wipe my brushes and stencils on copy paper.

It looks like this:

I save them because they look so pretty, don’t you think?

I had so many that I had to figure out what to do with them. So, since I love book binding so much, I decided to make myself some tiny books.

 

It was so much fun that I just recently made another.

 

I love these chunky little books so much.

 

 

Embrace imperfections

So I made some new art in my visual journal this morning. The title is “embrace in perfections”. I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. Sometimes I feel like we tend to act like chameleons Trying and striving to adapt to the world around us when really, we should simply embrace who we are and except ourselves just as we are. Embrace imperfections.

I made a little video on my YouTube channel, documenting my process. You can find it here:

 

I used Dylusions paints, Gesso by Deco Art, brushes were purchased at Michaels and the little word stickers were also purchased at Michaels. The lotus stamp is from my collection and the ink pad is by Clearsnap.

There she stands

There she stands

she-

the girl no one seems to want to love, there

there she is

there she stands

the girl

solitude, she embraces

love, she chases

but to no avail, they

don’t seem to want

what she has to offer:

adventures

love

goood cooking

great music

a glass of wine on a rainy evening

they do not seem to want this

they

only seem

to want to take take take

and never

ever give

so she stands alone

alone in blissful solitude.

 

Love is Chaos

This painting is for sale. Please contact me to purchase.

Love is chaos

like this

swirling of emotions

chaotic

like I love you and hate you and love you and sometimes

I cant stand you

lovd is chaos

a

giant echo of everything our parents taught us

everything we’ve seen

we are the aftermath of them

love is chaos

it is

the aftermath of toxic lovers and heartache

it is

loving myself first but also please be with me

lovd is chaos

echoes of the aftermath of old lovers and friends

of it when once unrequited

love is chaos

blue: for healing

purple: for power and strength and

I see

with my third eye unblinded

red: for passion

heat

lust

pink: for that real emo love

attraction

and a tiny bit of yellow: for success.

Love

it is chaos

echoes of the past self

echoes of who we loved and how we loved and

who we choose to love

the heart wants what it wants, they say

love is chaos.

That’s all they see

All they seem to see these days

are tetas (boobs)

all they seem to see is what they fancy to see, not

caring what is

on her mind or

how much she thinks big thoughts

how she cares or

how she looks at the world

you see

she is

more than just that

more than just boobs

pero solamente ven las tetas

but all they see are boobs.
