Shae DeTar

Hello you all, from My desk at the moment. 😍. I know I've been off of instagram a lot lately. The truth is I'm now a full time student in university, majoring in oil painting and drawing...I'm drawing 10 hours a day and often more than that and it consumes most every moment of my life right now. I'm constantly aware of how far I have yet to go, and I try and keep encouraging words around me, taped to my walls, to remind me to persevere because I'm going to get better through all of this insanely hard work. Vincent Van Gogh also did the #charlesbarguemethod and his letters to Theo mention his struggles with drawing and also the help that the course brought him when he put himself through 2 intense years of the Bargue lessons. I'm drawing a lot of cast sculptures and I can't quit until they look identical, which is daunting but, boy have I learned a lot already. I basically am drawing morning until night, literally drawing in my dreams (no joke) and learning to paint...the way painters in the Renaissance learned. I'm so happy, this may be the happiest I've ever felt and also the absolute hardest I've ever worked. So insanely grateful for the chance to take this time to learn something I've so often dreamed of. I'm doing the groundwork now so that I can make the big oil paintings that are floating around in my head...🌈🌻

Aww thanks @vice and @misscaileyanne for the interview 💓
Love Vice and their Creators Project...happy to have been included. 🌈🌻🦄

Location NYC (leaving NYC to shoot in the countryside but picking up and dropping off in NYC)

Love this book that came in the mail this week and happy to be included in it (my image on the back cover😀). #GirlOnGirl by @omfgnoway and @laurencekingpub out now! You can get it at target, amazon,google books with interviews and art from me, @mariannarothen @anetabartos1 @petrafcollins @amanda_charchian @maisiecousins @artxwerk6666 @junocalypso @thisismayan #IsabelWenzel and many more! Tunes: @nodoubt

Finally developed the rest of my film from my England and Iceland trip #censored #paintedphoto

After hearing a gallery dude tell me this piece was "weird" I decided to blow it up big, like 7ft big...because, Fuck that. I like weird. 💗 tunes: @50cent #cabinfever in the studio

Varnishing to @bigbabydram ❤️️

I have to varnish it now, but this 37x55.5" piece is painted full of color now and it's almost done.😉 (#censored )

Varnishing is the scariest part of what I's the last step and because of all of the hard work I put in to paint these expensive prints, it can all be ruined by varnishing mishaps. So, what better than to have a little calming assistance from @zaoband the record my husband @brettdetar made with them when he was in Zao in the 90s when we started dating. Fucking epic record. ❤️️❤️️❤️️#wherebloodandfirebringrest

Working on the biggest sized version of 'Butterfly' I've ever done--for a lovely @shimmysimiya in Switzerland. I've got many hours and days ahead of me...which fly by listening to fav old tunes by @jimmyeatworld

I'm getting ready to paint this shot I took in Iceland...quite fitting, since there is a Blizzard raging outside. ❄️⛄️🌨 I posted the small version I painted of this image, back in November, but I'm excited to paint it bigger now. #beforethepaint

This is EXACTLY how I feel. 🌺Currently Reading Georgia's biography.
