Practicing my flourishes. Thought the letter A would be a good place to start 😁 The first one is hand-lettered with a white gel pen, after that I used a small brush pen and then a large brush pen.  I've not been very well for the past few months, so I've hardly done any art or lettering at all. This was done on my over-the-bed desk. My hands were a bit shaky on the up-strokes and my hand got tired quite quickly, but I'm still pleased with how they turned out.  Do you like these types of videos? Would you like to see more of my work in progress videos? Let me know in the comments below.  I know I need to sort out some better lighting for this desk... My hand is making a horrible shadow πŸ˜… The next one will be better. --------------------🌼-------------------- ChronicallyHopeful.com #chronicallyhopefulart #drawing @Uniball_UK #lettering #brushlettering #handlettering @Tombow_UK @PentelUK #arttherapy #artastherapy #craftinginbed #meartist #chronicillnesswarrior
Did you know hemp is 4 times as strong as cotton and won't weaken when washed!? Plus, it gets softer the more you use and  wash them! These hemp/cotton blend dishtowels will be available at @hutchfestomaha on September 1st, so be sure to stop by and snag one up!!
Inner Battles. Acrylic on Canvas. 12x16.
I had a couple free hours before work today.  To paint on canvas, or not?  Agh!  Paint!! I was so excited and nervous.  What would I paint?  Would I remember how to paint on canvas?  I didn't have enough time, did I? ...mind chatter... It's been several years since I've painted on canvas, although I have plenty of blank ones in my closet (ha!). This one is 20x24, painted with acrylic paint.  I'll probably avoid using craft paint on such a large canvas in the future - it was a pain to have to keep layering and layering it. 😝 I also used some Liquitex Basics acrylic and Martha Stewart acrylic paint. . . . #artbyshantadevi #whatshantamade #art #painting #canvas #timelapseart #timelapsevideo #timelapse #workbeforework #colorfulart #blackartist #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlswhopaint #blackfemaleartist #artisfreedom #artistsoninstagram #artoninstagram #abstractart @blackgirlswhopaint #artastherapy #artoutloud #artoverfear
7/9 (Left Side) Messy Journal No. 7 Earlier today I posted these pages as they were in progress. Here are the finished pages. What do you think? This quote by @alisakburke sends a shiver down my spine. P.s. Bought a second Dylusions journal today @michaelsstores so that I can work on two at once! . . . . . . #seriesofninechallenge #holbeinacrylics #grumbacherpaints #dylusionsjournal #bebrave #bebold #fuckitup #experiencetruecolors #botanicaldoodles #getmessyartjournal #messyjournal #artastherapy #arttherapy #doitfortheprocess #carvetimeoutforart #clevelandartist #dowhatyoulove #makeyourmark #naturejournal #naturejournaling #markmaking #artjournal #artjournalpage #artjournaling #mixedmedia #acrylicpainting #illustratedjournal #artheals #arthealsthesoul #gelliprint
What would y'all think about illustrations cut out/ engraved on wood? I've a catalog of pieces I want to transfer to wood.  Snails are cool. My dad had a bunch of snail statues all over the house when I was growing up. Anytime i see a snail, I think of him. . . . #jbetart #jbetoriginal #dailyart #kcart #kcartist #localkcart #nofilter #artastherapy #makingsomethingbeautiful #makingsomethingweird #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #amidoingthisright #art #painting #watercolors #createeveryday
Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone in order to find it again... β €β € That’s what I learned last night after going to a session of “Guided Meditation and Painting” at Painting With a Twist in Skippack, Pa @pwatskippack . β €β € I was apprehensive at first, since I took my mom who is not one for meditation. (But I thought it would be fun!  She likes to paint, I like to paint... why not try the meditation thing together. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ) β €β € Then my Mom said, “I feel like I have my old Laura back.” And it felt good.... No, it felt great! β €β € And in that moment I remembered what truly brings me joy... cultivating my creative spirit and connecting with others.  Even if it’s just quietly painting together. πŸ’š β €β € For fun, which one did I do? Painting 1 or Painting 2?β €β € β €β € β €β € β €β € β €β € β €β € . . . . . . #paintingwithatwist #creating #arttherapy #artastherapy #meditationandart #bemindful #innerwork #liveinthenow #peacewithin #quietmind #naturalremedies #plantsoverpills #selfempowerment #pammj #pammjpatient #womenincannabis #cannabiscommunity #endthestigma #pennsylvaniacannabiscommunity #philly420 #phillycannabiscommuniy #wellnessjourney #liveinspired #patientadvocacy #cbdhealth #mentalhealthmatters #creativeprocess #livecreatively #doitfortheprocess #herestothecreatives

R E S I L I E N T. A F. ☁  WHAT REMINDS YOU OF YOUR RESILIENCE? ☁ ☁ ☁ ☁ Those who know me well also know that I've been facing a bunch of tough shit since the beginning of retrograde. I mean, I'm not even a huge believer in that stuff but I got hit with an existential clusterfuck july 1st and it lasted the entire month. I'm also very lucky that my 10 month contract position provided both a natural break from work and that I extended my pay so I could get by. So I took the time to feel it all. These were things I thought I was over but a much deeper level of this same crap was uncovered, and some new shit was thrown on top of it. It suuuucked. The positive side of it was I MANAGED. Not only for that one really tough thing that would have easily crushed me in my 20s, but the couple other things I had to face, accept and move forward on.  I can only attribute getting THROUGH it because I exhausted the coping skills I've learned over the past 10 years of consistent work. I talked to soooo many people so I wouldn't worry about burdening one person shutting down altogether. I sent out a lot more invitations and said "yes" to more opportunities than I would have liked (introvert) just so I would get out of my apartment and out of my head and to decrease the likelihood of depression from processing past emotions. ☁ ☁ ☁ ☁ I was drawn to the idea of doing my line work on black paper, and I really enjoyed this experiment. This process encouraged a new style to be revealed, and it resonates with a fresh direction. The use of black paper and white pen is a reminder of resilience as it evokes that process of hitting rock bottom to pick up the pieces, or more literally moving from the dark to the light. That point when you feel like it can't get any worse, you don't want to live life this way anymore and there is only one way left - up/out/forward. It wouldn't have happened if I hadn't waded in my shit and used what I've learned over time. I have been given a
Decided to do a rollie-pollie series after the wonderful @sedonayoga said she might get a little tattoo on her foot.

My beautiful cousin πŸ’“ embracing all the vintage vibes in a garage topped with some plants from my aunt’s garden 🀫 and a piece of tulle. 🌱
In the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, I go for refuge until enlightenment is reached... A work in progress, or perhaps the first draft of a later work. I think my favorite part is the Arhats in the clouds (for those who aren't in the loop with Buddhist mythos, Arhats are the disciples of the Buddha who transcended this life to be in nirvana. Not to be confused with the Bodhisattva, who returns to this world to save every sentient being. . . . #jbetart #jbetoriginal #dailyart #kcart #kcartist #localkcart #nofilter #artastherapy #makingsomethingbeautiful #makingsomethingweird #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #amidoingthisright #art #painting #watercolors #createeveryday
I'm not great with this social media thing. Though I haven't posted in a while, I've been making art every day. Been doing a "page a day" practice the past week that's felt really good. It's hard to go any time without creating. It's my life energy, it's my attempt to bring some beauty in the world (even if my art is more weird than beautiful). . . . #jbetart #jbetoriginal #dailyart #kcart #kcartist #localkcart #nofilter #artastherapy #makingsomethingbeautiful #makingsomethingweird #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #amidoingthisright #art #painting #watercolors #createeveryday
I'm very honored and excited to be participating in this project! ___  The Co Lab project was created in 2015 to bring together artists from all walks of life, whose paths may have never crossed in ordinary circumstances.  Co Lab coordinator Chloe Russell pairs participating artists together to create a collaborative piece. This exercise in radical inclusion creates opportunities for community connection, professional networking, and new friendships. Artists of all abilities and skill levels are invited to participate.  In the upcoming exhibition, opening at The Show Gallery on the evening of Saturday, September 7th from 5-8pm, 21 pairs of artists will display their new work.  Co Lab is sponsored by Wet Paint Art Supplies, Lieberman Companies, Master Framers, MSS, and The Show Nonprofit to provide supplies, framing materials and services, and monetary support to make this project possible. . . . . #mnartist #minnesotaartist #supportlocalartists #supportlivingartists #artastherapy #artmakesmehappy
