Just needed to share this stunningly beautiful moth I saw on my way home from a late night shift at the local cat shelter. It was a purely magical an serene moment and I was given much time by this fantastic creature to photograph it and though I’m far from a professional photographer, I’d say that these images are really good. It’s a Large Emerald (Geometra papilionaria) according to google ( “Dagfjärilsmätare” in Swedish) and it’s the first time I’ve seen one and it was definitely enchanting.

When you realise that you tripped into the trap that is following interesting Instagram artists, clicking away on suggested artists on and on, procrastinating and get both exited/inspired by what you see and feel discouraged because your frail self esteem can’t help comparing yourself and GAD starts to throw anxiety and depression at you like a bully going “why are you hitting yourself?”
Ok, so this post is meant to be in a lighthearted tone, because this is a daily basis for me and I’ve learnt to laugh at some of it. I think I’ve found up to +10 accounts here today that I felt “wow” about 😮

Going trough art therapy process and my cat wants attention... how odd 😒😆😉😊

I accidentally added the original photo underneath the layers I had made in this drawing. The result looked amazing (according to me), so I decided to keep it. I feel like this , due to this mishap, soon is finished and I will then talk more about the work itself. 😊

Painting over this unfinished work. The previous painting reminds me of an emotional trauma I suffered through soon after I started on it, and thus turned what would have been something of love and joy into sorrow and heartache.
I have a new motif in mind but I’ll see where I go with this. It will be a part of a healing process for me.

Moving forward. Today is not a good day. It’s a day of grief and hurt, but I will keep on walking, even though I don’t want to. I say this not to get attention, but to get it off my chest and to let you guys know that it’s ok to feel bad. It’s ok to feel hopeless from time to time. That it’s ok to cry, no matter who you are; male, female, both, either... it’s ok. And your feelings are valid and true. You’re not alone, even when you feel that you are, but it’s ok to feel that way. The feelings of grief and hurt are like wild waves in a great storm. They will sweep over you, take your breath away and pull you under, but they will pass, you will reach the surface and breathe again. The sun will shine on a tranquil beach once more, and so; this too shall pass

So I’ve been taking a break from art and all my craft projects and been expanding on this bedspread that I made by crochet squares from rags of old clothes, curtains etc, and then stitch it together. It’s 8x8 squares now and one square is approximately 10-15cm, you do the maths, I’m too tired, since I post this before sleep.
The qualities this item possesses are:
• 100% recycled material, worn and torn clothing= more squares to expand with!
• Heavy, acts as a light weighted blanket.
• Rough texture for tactile stimuli, for calming anxiety, panic and loss of the sense of reality (brings you down to earth again)
• Not fragile what so ever
• Offers some warmth but won’t boil you. • Pretty nice to lay on top and under.
• My cat loves it as he gets to scratch at it as much as he likes and loves the texture.

Hi guys! I’ve been gone for some time because I have had projects at home that needs to be done and struggle a bit with my new medication. But here’s some update on this drawing!

Some origami folding from today. I had some of my co-workers doodle on some sheets to give me more interesting patterned paper to fold with and several happily obliged.☺️ I’m still training on folding dragons, this is a somewhat free-styled version.
Creds to @http.maliixi for the design of the pink paper

Working more on the dimensions of the hands. Getting details the colouration of the skin and the shape. Later on I’m going to focus on highlight and shade corresponding to a light source and maybe some details with tendons and wrinkles of the hands.

Testing this background, the scene took place in a forest glade (its from a dream I had). What do you guys think? Any suggestions or thoughts about it? ( its quite far from done)
