Thank you all so much for the love surrounding the shape screen shop update on Monday. There are still some beauts left, like these two larger pieces in “Morning Pink” and “Grapefruit & Shell.” Side note: can someone please commission a huge version of this for a wedding background. 😍
Here’s a look at the 15 hand-painted wood ornaments I’ll be listing in my Etsy shop tonight at 8pm EST. If you want a closer look at them check out my stories! You can also spy the three painted acorn caps I shared a couple of weeks ago which I’ve attached to little wood slices so they’re like miniature paintings on stands! They’ll be available in the update as well ☺️ Everything is ready to ship so I’ll be taking any orders tonight to the post office Friday and Saturday so they should arrive in time for Christmas if you’re in the U.S. Hope you’re having a lovely Thursday!

What's your favorite color scheme?
For me, I love baby pink and light blue, with traces of bright orange, yellow, teal & pthalo blue. You'll see these colors in most of my paintings (unless I'm trying to go super realistic), because they make me so happy! I think the brightness and contrast in this combo is just so much fun.
What are your go-to colors--lighter tones or moodier hues? Do you like high contrast in your work, or hues that blend together?

You're only amazing until someone more amazing comes a long. They will only love you until their idea of forever after is over. You are their one and only until they find someone better than you to replace you with. You are only wanted for season. They don't need to give you a reason when they leave. Because you are replaceable. Always have been always will. But what they don't realize is... The same illogical notion applies to them too.
All I’m saying is that all the bullshit that people say and how they are gonna be there forever or whatever with no intention of staying etc. they get it into their head that they have some power over you. Because they are the one breaking your heart when you also said forever. And the truth is once we realize that someone more amazing is coming along, or that “forever” is over or that “season” is over. We “the victims” see them in the same exact light and we are no longer impacted by the negligence of our feelings and emotions. Once we get past the shock we too can make them replaceable to an extent.
And yes, also we need to become okay with the idea that everything is temporary. Because even in the most purest relationships or truest of loves. We have no control over anything. And death can come take away even the best of men. Thus, making it impossible to count on the idea of forever.
All we can do Is love like there is no tomorrow. Be genuine. And first and foremost love yourself so much that anyone else that brings love into your life is an added bonus. True love does exist, but I think we’ve been approaching it wrong.

@patrickthomasbryant giving off that werewolf vibe!
It’s so much fun for us to see how each one of the portraits we take comes out different and so unique to each of you. 🖤
And we appreciate you all so much that we’re doing a PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY later today! 🤭😲Keep an eye out for the deets
"My experience at @aintnobodylikethisbody helped me to unpack shame and negative self talk; it revealed a beauty and strength that was always there, but that I had a hard time accessing until this amazing experience. I went into this magical day being slightly scared, but left feeling aligned in my power."
This powerful creature's experience--as well as experiences from many of our 2019 Ain't No Body babes--are on the blog today. Click the link in our bio to read their stories and sign up for our January event!

One of my own personal favorites as a print and I can’t rave enough about the quality of the heavy watercolor paper it’s printed on. A few more hours of 15% off these babies in my shop! 👆🏻💛

Thinking about this sweet portrait today! Scooter was a memorial portrait that I had the pleasure of drawing earlier this year.
I have three portraits on my desk today, all of them are Christmas gifts so they will stay secret for a bit longer. ✨🎄✨
We really wanted to try something a little different stylistically and even a little bit different in approach. We decided to finally render out a sketch from a couple of years ago that we had been sitting on. We are super excited about where it is going. 😎 Actually we are really loving this burnt-orange Copic marker we've been using .. and although we aren't planning for it to be the final color we might use this as one of our standards in the future. Just really pops .. don't ya think? 👍
All I want for Christmas is cats, plants... and January! 😖 I'm sure my fellow makers and vendors and feeling the pressure of the season and looking forward to the quiet of January too.
That being said...TODAY is my last market day of the year! AND this coming Thursday is the LAST day to order from the shop if you need something by Christmas or Hanukkah!
If you're around San Jose, come say hello at @sjmade today!

It’s the last few days to order your paint-splattered baubles in time for Christmas 🎄
Happy holidays. Got to have that 2020 vision. One of my mentors told me "No one can teach you how to do it, you just have to do it, till you get it. One day it will just click, and you have it." So that being said, do everything you have to do. #happyholidays#doitfortheprocess pic.twitter.com/lzDNlVbQ95
Hello lovelies! How are you?😊 .
How did you experience the last full moon in Gemini? ♊ For me it felt quite intense (Gemini is my sun sign 😊). Gemini energy can be very unsettling. Gemini have a strong intellect (curious, analytical, absorbing new information frequently, get bored quickly 🙈). This thinking power can also become a pitfall: thinking too much 🤯. This last full moon was ideal to become aware of limiting believes that you want to leave behind in 2019 / let go off. Write them down on paper and release it by burning the piece(s) of paper. Be careful and always have a bowl of water nearby 💧
The theme that came through in this Gemini full moon painting was 'Show your true colors'.
Don't play small and let limiting beliefs hold you back! Choose love over fear 💗. You consist of all the colors of the rainbow, show them, it's time! The world needs your beautiful qualities and talents 🌈
The gemstones that I incorperated in this artwork are: Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Pyrite, Citrine, Chalcedone, Snowquartz and Turkois! A powerful combination! 💎🤩
Curious how this moon painting makes you feel 😁 .
This full moon painting (r= 20 cm) is for sale. Let me know if this artsy moon in Gemini resonates with you! 💗
These vintage abalone charms deserved a close up 📸🐚
I’ll have the new Ellipse Charm Necklaces at @showofhandschicago this Thursday! The current stone options are Mother of Pearl, Goldstone, Chrysoprase, Black Shell, Tiger’s Eye, and Abalone.
Totally my goal with my Christmas shopping this year. I am all about shopping with people who create really great stuff that is beautiful/useful. I'm voting with my wallet to support businesses with heart and I really hope you do too. Check out my stories throughout the day I'll be adding creative businesses that I love and buy from when I can, not because I have loads of $ floating around (always welcomed though) but because it feels great to know that my hard earneds are going to support someone elses purpose

Follow me into Narnia ✨ Happy Sunday guys. Went with M to look at some Christmas 🎄 Trees and had an idea to do a @tiktok video 🎥 right on the spot! Yup, I’m sure the people there thought we were crazy 😜 Swipe to see video and black and white photo! Are you on #tiktok ?

When it comes to painting my art is always loaded with colors.
When it comes to my warderobe its 75% in black.
I guess they balance each other out😊

Feeling especially in the holiday spirit! Just bought tickets to spend Christmas in Paris and New Years in Marseille with my girl @heathermary_dad. Any suggestions for either place? I haven’t taken a vacation in forever, I’M SO EXCITED 🌟! Understatement of the year.

Tomorrow’s the last day to order prints and embroidery pieces for delivery by 12/25 🎄 But if you’re shopping for yourself, you’ve got nothing but time 😉
Celebrate the epic year you’ve had or your favorite trip of the decade. Pick a spot on the map that reminds you of a magical time in your life and let’s make a colorful work of art that will always bring you back. DM me about commissioning a custom embroidery piece celebrating your favorite spot.
I have many favorites. New York will always be the place I keep coming back to. Savannah is my favorite city. Vermont is my favorite state. And the hills and canyons of L.A. are my favorite places to dream about going back in time to. #lookoutmntnseries is my way of holding on to the dream. Original pieces from the series are currently available on my website. Only a few remain in this current collection release. Link in bio to purchase.
It’s cold outside, but it’s warm, colorful and sparkly indoors on my studio table - here is my glitter paint palette where I wipe my brushes after mixing my custom, shimmering glitter glaze and painting the vibrant petals of my flower jewelry✨🌼
