I used a 45 vinyl record and painted with acrylic paints, inks, and topped it off with art resin. There is a spray of red paint, a line of pink ink, and the rest is a blue/green mixture with a touch of yellow. The art resin creates a shinny appearance. This is a small art piece that would be great on a desk, bedroom, or hanging in a music room. The 45 was a scratched and not able to work. Save the Music!

Bid on me!

Hang in there

We all have those days where we wonder ….

What the hell is the point? What am I doing?

Remember that cat poster in school?

Hang in there! I had that feeling yesterday. I have made a lot of big changes in my life just within the past year. It’s hard not to wonder if the decisions I have made were nothing but a huge mistake.

I look back and see that I quit a job that was stable to live a unstable life. I have returned to college after 8 years and started taking art seriously. I am a unemployed student mother of three. When I realized I could no longer afford child care I had to resort to online college. I will not let anything stop me! But I do wonder if this online college isn’t bogus. But I have pursed all this with a positive attitude.

I need to do this. I will succeed!

But I can’t help wonder from time to time if I am totally fucking my life up. I guess one would think that. We are told from a young age to know what career choice to make at the end of high school.  But what if you have no clue. What if you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or 50s and still don’t know what you want to be when you grow up? Many creative people are told to rethink their art careers because they will make little money. I thought we are supposed to do what we love? Who comes up with this stuff anyways?

Today I am seeing things more clearly. I will not settle until I reach my goals. My life lived so far has all happen for a reason. If I didn’t experience what I have so far than maybe I wouldn’t even be considering or thinking what I am today. Today I am grateful for all the fuck up decisions I have made and continue to make. Who knows where I will be in 5 or 10 years.

Eat Shiitake Mushrooms

One of my favorite paintings. It’s a 8×10 canvas which is perfect for a bedroom, office, or other place in the home. It’s small, cute and vibrant with colors. This was inspired from listening to the band Let’s Eat Grandma for my 100 days of creativity challenge. The process of listening to music and letting the paintbrush flow with the song is my way of working. Music is very powerful.  Music can change how we feel, think, and act. What do you think?
