Feeling the artistic inspiration from the new moon tonight! 🌙 Enjoy my latest fractal piece. Photo was taken in the District of Rock Island. This is one of many I am creating lately that I named, "Layers of Love". All of my fractals are original.

創作,因人而異

我沒有基本功
純粹愛畫畫😁
這張一開始沒什麼想法
只是不斷的把顏色往紙上疊
然後紙就變得凹凸不平
因為太濕了😂
哈哈哈

乾了之後覺得顏色很淺
所以用了色鉛筆再加顏色上去
月亮是我看其他畫家的作品
突然也想畫畫看就加上去了

樹、小女孩、小魔女!?
也是覺得可以畫畫看就畫了
有點隨性😛

這張的主題應該可以叫做
「誤闖魔女世界的女孩」(誤)

純粹分享
謝謝大家

這張不算100張挑戰 #100challenge
之後還會繼續畫下去😁

Two of my absolute favorite things are traveling and insanely bright colors 🌎🌈 I’m so in love 😍 with my new art for my office. The picture doesn’t do it justice showing how vivid the colors are.

C H E E R S🌈🥃 I’ve been almost a decade free of disposable water bottles. Carrying my reusable, everywhere I go,  like an extension of my body. 
But I was still guilty of throwing away plastic lids from coffees and numerous plastic cups from protein shakes and smoothies to name few 😬

For #plasticfreejuly and the foreseeable future  I’m taking it up a notch.  This little jar now accompanies my water flask. 
Super easy. 🧦the recycled sock keeps it from clanking against stuff in my bag and keeps my hands cool from hot ☕️ 🌈 (thanks @fairy.phi  for the tip 😉 )
What sustainable item can you convert to this month⁉️

And finally, I used a really colorful filter to get an even more dramatic effect.
And finally, I used a really colorful filter to get an even more dramatic effect.
My heart melts at your smile
When our eyes meet
My heart pounds

Oh remember my smile in your heart
Think about it several times a day

Oh words I want to say you to
You’re beautiful

Today my community suffered. Our world is a negative place. People are so quick to tell you about what you did wrong, rather than what you did right. Judgement is through the roof. You see more hate than you do love. Depression is all around us. BUT I stand here to tell you that Im fighting LIKE HELL to make this world a better place. I’m one tiny person fighting against the world, but I’m feisty and I will have victory. I DARE YOU to join me in making this world a better place. Share a smile with a person on the street. Ask someone how their weekend was. let someone cut in line in front of you. reach out to that friend that you keep thinking about, you have no idea what’s going on in their head. Give tough love, but don’t be an asshole. 👈🏻 Give advice, but don’t be a know it all. •
It doesn’t take much to turn someone’s day around, why not turn the world around?! I live in a sunshine and cupcake kind of world. I’ve always been “picked on” about always being positive and naive. I love my sunshine and rainbow world, and I will continue to spread that shit all over. If anyone has an issue with that, then I pray you’ll see the light eventually. But for the time being stay in your own little negative corner. 😘

My heart goes out to those who lost their lives today, their families and to all those who protect us. 💙💙 lets make a change starting now. I will rise tomorrow and everyday to “try again” to touch someone’s life in the most positive way.

Express Yourself! 
Hoy es la marcha, la primera a la que asisto y entre la expectativa y emoción por ir recuerdo las veces en que leí sobre la actividad en años anteriores y notaba que cada año iba más gente,pero no entendía muy bien del todo por qué marchaban. 
Ahora lo sé y reconozco la valentía de todos los que lo hacen, cada quién tiene su propia lucha y nos unimos todos para ser libres y celebrar nuestra existencia. 
Cada quién va cómo quiere, y a pesar de que a algunos les molesta la manera de vestir o actuar de algunas personas, hay que recordar que esto es una celebración dónde cada quién se representa a su manera, todos somos diferentes y tenemos que respetar la individualidad de cada uno tal como nosotros pedimos respeto y libertad de expresión para la comunidad en general.

SJ se llenará de colores y mucha alegría, todos con diferentes accesorios arcoíris 🌈 
Por último, si a UD le molesta la gente que usa camisas/gorras/banderas/pines, etc con la bandera de la diversidad, nos llama enfermos, pecadores y nos manda a “curarnos”... GO FUCK YOURSELF y páguese a revisar UD más bien 😘

Muchas gracias a @ficopaco_ por las fotos y a @wancitocubero @warnerykimo por le bolso y la banda que están muy bonitos 🌈

My life as children's book illustrator had it's highs and lows ~ creating this particular illustration certainly was one of the high points. The commission from Hodder Wayland to illustrate a poetry book - 'Rainbow World' - directed at teens and focused on celebrating world unity and diversity, was a true delight ~ and was made even more glorious given that I was given free reign to produce.  Believe me ~ being let off of the leash as a kids' book illustrator was a rarity, so I took the opportunity to indulge and create something beautiful. The book remains one of my favourites of the 40+ books completed over 13 years. I particularly like this entry, a Chinese poem ~ for finding the joys to be found in simple things has become a pillar of my life these days... and looking back at this work brings me to a moment of realisation as to why I am now an 'artist' and no longer an 'illustrator'. To be the latter is to be thrown from one project to the next, with no community to work with, no relationship to had with fellow creators, no pauses to be savoured; creating like a cog in a machine. With the former, I get to do all of the above, save the cog part... As an artist I do get to go walking along the river; I am offered the opportunity to connect with my experience, to be present, and now I really do 'know' the joy of the fishes... 'The Joy of Fishes'
Chuang Tzu and Hui Tzu
Were crossing Hao river 
By the dam.
Chuang said:
'See how free
The fishes leap and dart:
That is their happiness.' Hui replied:
'Since you are not a fish
How do you know 
What makes fishes happy?
Chuang said:
'Since you are not I 
How can you possibly know 
That I do not know 
What makes fishes happy?

Hui argued:
'If I, not being you,
Cannot know what you know
It follows that you
Not being a fish
Cannot know what they know.' Chuang said:
'Wait a minute!
Let us get back
To the original question.
What you asked me was "How do you know What makes fishes happy?"
From the terms of your question
You evidently know 
What makes fishes happy. 'I know the joy of the fishes in the river
Through my own joy, as I go walking 
Along the same river.' Chuang Tzu
