It's raining buckets here in Augusta. Reminds me of this abstract I painted in March. It's one of three paintings collectively called "Breakthrough". It tells of the times we may feel buried and suffocating with the stresses of the world and our lives. But if we take a different perspective, we are actually being planted as a seed. The walls that feel like they're caving in are the very places we will grow our roots in, become stronger, and gain experience/wisdom before we can push out of that dark place. Swipe to see how the painting turned out. 😊

This started off as a dog’s skull but then I got annoyed with the painting and just put paint all over/wherever/however 🤷🏽‍♀️ Later on decided maybe add some simple roses and some other things. Think it turned out well 🤔🙆🏽‍♀️ • #acrylicpainting #rosepainting #skullpainting #expressiveart #deathart

This is where it's at you know. This is where it all starts. In the time and space at my art desk without the Internet present. In the 'wtf?' space of my mind. Without that there would be nothing to share, nothing to teach, nothing to build. . . I've had a couple of challenging days. Days about marketing and the Internet and goals and disappointments. And then I need to take a step back and remember where it comes from, where it starts. Then I need to go back there and live there for a little while. The place that is not the Internet. (Yeah, only a very little while, I'm a bit addicted, at least to Instagram stories 😂) . . . #irisimpressionsart

halikarla. Life and beauty and connection come from chaos kissed with the energy

Life and beauty and connection come from chaos kissed with the energy of Creative Spirit. When it will visit is something of a matter of grace combined with how open our awareness is, and how deep our commitment to stay with the trouble of our honest, brilliant wholeness and process. But we have to show up with our All to the chaos first... then breathe, trust, listen, surrender, release our energy for the cause of knowing better than we did before we started. In the case of visual expression, and this rather large mess evolving on my table today, that looks like... move color, move line, connect ideas loosely for awhile. It might not look like the art your mind would like to be making, but it is the art of participating with your felt living experience, unfolding presence and the corridors of all the layers of consciousness you bring, knowingly and unknowingly. #studiomusing #wip #somethinglikethat . . . #creativepractice #trusttheprocess #creativeprocess #creativespirit #creativeenergy #intuitivepainting #intuitiveartist #holisticcreativity #chaos #mixedmediapainting #practiceinpresence #strangeart #creativity #contemplative #lifeisbeautiful #artheals #doitfortheprocess #keepitreal #messyart #creativeexpression #expressiveart

Hello, this is me, Alisha Teves, in my honest state. I am a mother first, and this is who I am and how you would see me in everyday life -no editing, no dress up, just me in my practical and comfortable mom clothes. I have been busy completing the tapestry you see behind me, but I think it's time I share my origin story with you. My love for fiber started when I was a young child. My mother sewed as her hobby and I remember obsessing over ironing fabric. The hiss of steam rises in my memory. I tried knitting, but I was too tense with the stitches and I'm a perfectionist. My sister reintroduced me to fiber by teaching me to crochet when I was in college. I realized how strong my passion was when I later discovered fiber artists on Instagram and I was overcome by this deep urgency to create. I loved fiber before I realized my first medium, analog photography. With two kids, I cannot pursue the processes I work with while watching them, so I learned a new way to express my visual language. As I grow as an artist, I am always experimenting and exploring new ideas. I had no clue what I would be doing out of college. I never thought I would be where I am, but it just feels right.

The output of yesterday’s art therapy. . I called it “Now and Then: A Triptych”. . The instruction was to fold the paper in three and draw where we are now in the middle, where we have come from on the left and where we are going or would like to be on the right. As always we then labelled and wrote about each piece. . Left: “Superwoman’s Reign” In looking whole she found the hole that formed when we first split. Through projected perfection, strength and power, Superwoman lived. Our life was empty and too hard, we thought the world was dark. And inside secrets held so tight that eventually exhausted we fell apart. . Middle: “The Little Ones” Our days and nights are tumultuous. We Switch and fall and learn and leap. In finding out what lies within we feel so much we fear we’ll die. Each part has her own journey. And it feels so hard and it feels so slow. But it’s the only way we ever can heal. We have to trust and we have to feel. And hear our story. And accept we are REAL. . Right: “One for Joy” When parts commune in harmony within and without then I’ll be free. . It’s done in ink on paper and the vivid colours and flow of the ink along with an assortment of interestingly shaped brushes really allowed me to experiment with form and colour. . . . #katymatildaneoart #arttherapy #intuitiveart #expressiveart #RecoveryArt #MentalHealthArt #InstaArt #Artjournal #artspeaks #BPD #CPTSD #dissociativeidentitydisorder #multiplepersonalities #Mentalhealthawareness #spoonie #Mentalillness #mentalhealthadvocate #ItsOkayNottoBeOkay #InvisibleIllness #Takebackcrazy #Iam1in4 #MentalHealthWarrior #mentalhealthmatters #traumasurvivor #abusesurvivor #addictionrecovery #mystoryisntover #mentalhealthrecovery #psychology #endthestigma

I’ve developed certain rituals around my work. Usually, the day after a life drawing class I wait for some alone-time (this ritual does not run smoothly in the company of a crawling baby) then lay the drawings all over my studio floor. Weeding out the weaker ones, I’m left with those that have ‘something’ about them. Amongst these, there is usually one which feels especially confident, true to itself and uncompromising. I get a physical high when I discover it, because invariably my memory of having actually drawn it is either foggy or sometimes missing. I’m not sure what happens when I’m drawing pieces, but the marks making the marks I make certainly aren’t consciously chosen. Preparations for the Undercurrent exhibition have taken over my time recently, and although I haven’t stopped drawing, I have stopped looking through those drawings. Until today. Back in the studio and feeling high on new work! #katherinesheersartist #katherinesheers #undercurrentexhibition #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #lifedrawing #figurativeart #figurativeartist #expressiveart #abstracted #femaleform #highonart

"So they gave me love in form of poison and tiny little pills, programming my emotions, teaching me how to feel. To act correct and talk correct and answer without knowing the question, because that, my dear, is how you get love. Yes that, dear youth, is how you'll be loved. I tried to medicate my own fucked up little mind with chemicals and adrenaline, tasting sweeter every night, shaking louder every time. Sitting wide awake in bed until the world disappears, writing poetry to concentrate on something real while waiting for the love to arrive. I've been looking for it night after night, waiting patiently for it to show up, maybe somewhere in between the state of awake and asleep, alive and not so alive, sober and not so sober..." #memoirsofagypsy
