Alter egos are the demons that demonstrate our weaknesses. Surrendering to yourself and your collective aura is not giving in. Your Angels, demons, familiars have traveled with you a long time. The act of ignoring them, or seeing it as an 'evil' promotes self destruction. Its like looking at an open wound on your body, yelling "this hurts! Ill just pretend it doesnt exist and maybe it will go away." Just like a thought...except physically an infection builds up.
So if we have demons to demonstrate our worst attributes (negative thoughts, habitual mistakes), does ignoring them also create an infection? A plauge of the mind, that in turn wears down your vessel and makes it prone to sickness. Over time getting bigger, more of an 'issue' such as the habitual mistakes. Can be present and go unnoticed, payback is a lot of lost time and energy on a mistake you know you will make.
Your demons will come in all sorts of forms based on your beliefs and what you percieve. It could be the name of a perscription medication, an ancient creature, a ghost, a dead relative or just the term 'depression'. Notice the entity that brings you uncomfort to the point of skewing the balance of your natural routine. Its literally screaming for your attention 24/7. Tell them to sit up straight and chill the fuck out. Tell yourself you love noticing it, because the more you acknowledge it the more you think to fix it. Create a habit of self healing and self love by acknowledging all those inner demons you blindly judge.

Creating a watery wonderland. 💦🎢. I love layering colour combinations of paint I think will look beautiful together. I adore flow, movement and beauty in art. So, I wet the colours or part of them to see what happens. The results are sometimes unexpected and can take the painting in a new direction with a completely new feeling. It is magical, beautiful and makes me so happy to create beauty on a canvas or paperwork. I wonder how this one will turn out? 😉
Saturday is for cleaning and rearranging my space. I’m preparing for my mum’s very first visit to Los Angeles, and I couldn’t be more excited to have her here to celebrate my birthday over Thanksgiving. The hardest part of this whole adventure is doing it all without my favorite people, and my mum’s my best friend. She’s the one who had me drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon. I don’t think she envisioned this kind of work in my future, but here we are! 😉
My first experience as a life model and this is one of the results. When I first looked at this beautiful painting I had to take a double take as it was so strange to see myself represented in paint. The artist seems to have captured the exact thoughts that were going through my mind at the time. This was an experience that made me equally nervous and excited. I stepped out of my comfort zone and stripped down in front of a room full of people. Stood naked in front of them and allowed them to draw me for 3 hours. It was the most beautiful experience of art, respect, beauty, love, life! I came out feeling loved and nourished by the experience. Every artist found something different in me to pull out and work on, every drawing was different, from different angles, pen work or focus point. All incredible art and all beautiful. A chance for me to see how others see me, which is a beautiful thing in itself #lifemodel#lifemodelling#portrait#art#feminineart#watercolours#feminine#femininebeauty
