If anyone has ever wondered why I add color to my paintings I do it for autism awareness. Not that the painting itself is an autism awareness painting, but it's a reminder to myself. Painting has been therapeutic for me through some challenging times.💙 With that being said I added a little extra to this guy because he reminds me of my son Arian😉 tough and strong but sensitive and gentle at the same time!
This is a square 20X20 canvas. The original is available for purchase 🙂

These amazing visuals keeps me more curious than the fish below me. The magics of light and water. .
Went for snorkeling with @niyamamaldives and this resort shares the same reef with nearby local island called Dh. Maaenboodhoo. We saw two small turtles and 1000s of fish. I was loving these sort of visuals and the bubble blowing by a @niyamamaldives staff (will share that on Story).

One of my old paintings from 2016. Oil on wood 24”x48”
Fun to be able to work through my whole process with a piece like this in a matter of a few days vs. a few weeks or months. It really helped me define and see clearly each step I take in making a final piece of art and calling something “done.” From research, concept, layout, material prep, sketch, layers of paint, problem solving before and during each layer. To finishing the piece with final tweaks, touch ups, removing it from the board I work on, photographing it, editing photos and then finally packing and shipping. It’s helped me see just how much is involved which will hopefully help teach me some lessons as I journey into the world of “real” professional artist.
This photo represents maybe steps 16 thru 20 in the whole process of 24ish total steps that I can count out. Who knew! I didn’t even really know/understand what goes into developing a painting until I literally had to sit and think about every single step. Kinda cool. Certainly helps me appreciate the work that goes into what I create as well as what every other artist and maker does a little more!
The next and final steps will be to say goodbye, safely pack and ship this to it to the lady these fluffs belong to!
You should have it in your fan mail box within a week Jessika! 💘 🦊 💕🦊
Stay tuned I’m going to share a close up sometime next week.

I have been busy this last week really dedicating time to learning the art of digitizing embroidery files, and have had some moderate success so far. First, let me tell you, embroidery machines do NOT like super fine details, much like the designs I’m used to producing on shirts. 🤔This has forced me to simplify and repurpose my old designs for patches. After a lot of trial and error, I think I’ve found a happy medium for details. The amount of jump stitches I need to still cut out after has been a pain in the ass though.
This polar bear came out pretty good, outside of one layer not lining up quite right in the beginning, you can hear more about that in my story, if you’re into that sort of thing. The patch itself is a good size, but with size takes a lot of stitches and time, this particular patch took me around 1 hour to complete.
If you’d be interested in having me make one of these polar bears for you, you can order one through my site. Next patch will be hereptology focused, stay tuned.
