Starting piece #4 🍦exploring the feud between interest & disinterest... sparked by my own desire to explore the unknown vs the fight or flight reaction I have to protect myself from the unfamiliar.

Putting the final touches on this duality piece that was inspired by a journal entry I made dealing with my conflicting desire to be vulnerable in relationships and feeling like I want pull away when I feel the risk of getting hurt... it’s definitely a conflict that comes up often for me. Do you feel that ever? •

Let’s talk about REJECTION. We see the wins on social media. But while people think you’re “killing it” the truth is there are a crap ton of misses happening. Festival rejections. Commissions Re-dos. Scraped contracts. Shows your not invited to. And that’s just in the painting part of life! The thing about these rejections is they give us the choice to wallow in grief or push forward even harder. It’s hard to want to be rejected, but the bottom line is, if you haven’t been rejected in someway in the past couple months, you’re probably not living your full potential.
So keep doing you boo, it’s not as pretty as it ‘looks’ on @instagram , & you are not alone. • •

Halfway thru these pieces & having a meltdown cuz I don’t know if anyone is gonna “get” them & my eyes hurt from trying to create them 🙈 I know the art creation stages & Im just waiting for the “this looks great” that often comes after the “what am I doing” 🙇🏽‍♀️

The opposing emotions of opening up / closing off keep showing up in my journaling... I notice myself move back & forth between wanting to be open & vulnerable, and then other times pulling back & being cautious... What opposing emotions do you struggle with? (If you share below, they may become a painting someday 🍦)
