Introvert Painter…

Trying to form the words to explain this struggle
It’s hard to share my work
I’m trying, but it’s an every day battle
But if I had my way
I’ll make art in the forest
Only for the trees and the birds and the wind
I’ll share my thoughts, maybe some photographs
But never my paintings, never my sketches
Because those are pieces of my soul
They are drips from my dreams
With every stroke on a canvas, I share my DNA
Then I stop myself
And I question myself
Why have light, just to sit in the dark
Why have gifts and not give presents
Why have a healing story and keep it a secret
So my next step in my artistry
I’ll stay gentle with myself
After all, the world is harsh enough on me…

I love so much the atmosphere of your blog and your pictures ! :) I wanted to ask you, for your blue dyed hair, which hair product's brand did you use ?
Me:

I’m glad you’re able to enjoy it, don’t forget to reblog your faves….but I color my hair with professional grade products that I blend myself so it’s not really something you can go out and buy

Growing up, I always thought stretch marks were bad but it took me growing up to recognize it’s connection to the fact us women are just divine.

Strength has it’s levels but some are strong down to their veins. It’s not about the fight, it’s about the survival…

The clavicle bone is by far my fave bone ever, Latin for “the little key”, it’s no wonder why this area is generally sensitive, it opens.

We often have ti remind ourselves of all the beautiful things of this world, with all this drama, we must not become jaded, enjoy the beauty.

Have you ever heard of the story Sarah “Saartije” Baartman who was exhibited as a freakshow attraction? Women come in all shapes and sizes and colors and varieties so embrace your body darlings and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

While it’s meaning are vast and a source of a world wide debate, my fave understanding of the Ankh is the concept between a woman and a man…completion through union.

I love your pictures. You look so elegant and regal ๐Ÿ˜Š
Me:

๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ you def just made me blush, best thing I’ve heard all day….thanks for the love and bad mood shift

Often I feel isolated for being different in this Chicago “art” culture …my artistry isn’t always tangible so people often misunderstand where I stand as an artist. Five years in, stepping out from the underground and breaking my introvert ways, I am on my journey to my first visual art show… It’s time for people to understand where I’m coming from.
