A little late posting this. Finished the drawing a few weeks ago.

It took an immense amount of energy to create this drawing.

The colors in this drawing are similar to some of the drawings I have created in the past.

Attempted to use bright and vibrant colors.

I ended up using almost all of the paper corner to corner.

I use 18×24 inch paper when creating most of my drawings.

Whenever I begin the sketch of each drawing I have an uncertain feeling.

Thinking in my mind. “How will this go” In a doubtful but undoubtful voice.

Thinking of the future and manifesting doubtful thoughts.

Then retelling my subconscious mind anything is possible and to not doubt myself

You can never rush the process.

Especially the creative process.

You have to let the moment “be.”

Let it happen.

If you force the creative process.

The art your soul “intended” to create will not manifest itself into existence.

If you are creating your art for the validation of others.

The purpose of “creation/art” is destroyed.

The creative process should be meditative.

Not forced similar to a “duty.”

Use your heart and soul as tools when creating.

Ignore what others think.

“You” are the creator of your own art.

You have to desire the creative process to the point where you become lost in the process itself.

Create art that will make no sense to you at the moment.

Only in the future, will your creations make “sense” to you.

Let the moment be and accept what you have created.

Fix something if you need to fix something.

Do not get too carried away.

There are infinite mistakes and possible “corrections” or “errors.”

How do we know what is “correct” and “incorrect.”

Art is here for the individual to express themselves through their own reality.

The artist is sharing perspective through their subconscious mind.

Art holds infinite possibilities and ideas…

Harness your energy the best you can before beginning a piece of art.

Be delicate when arting.

Everything is art to a certain extent.

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Bob Ross. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

– “I think there’s an artist hidden at the bottom of every single one of us.”

– “Look around. Look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere—you only have to look to see it.”

– “This is your world. You’re the creator. Find freedom on this canvas. Believe, that you can do it, ‘cuz you can do it.”

– “You can do anything here — the only prerequisite is that it makes you happy.”

– “Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.”

– “I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people.”

– “I can’t think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul.”

– “The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”

– “If we’re going to have animals around we all have to be concerned about them and take care of them.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to. I will stop before I get too carried away.

Divine feminine

DSC_0585

I will attempt my best to explain this drawing.

There are feminine and masculine traits.

Females have more power/energy.

Labels of each gender are different and quite stereotypical.

The woman. Feeds the family. Cleans. Becomes pregnant. Has the labor of the baby. Raises kids. Lots of love is created and spread. Provides for loved ones. Etc….

Tell your mother you love her. Your mother is everything. Without your own mother, you wouldn’t exist.

Mother nature is a woman.

The earth is more of a being than an earth. The earth has feelings similar to us. The earth reacts to everything we do with it.

The earth is both a female and a male.

The soul is what truly matters the most.

The external world is an illusion.

Imagine every “mother” being a “father.”

As well as every “father” being a “mother.”

If single dads were running this world, I doubt they could “accomplish” as much as our mothers have accomplished for us.

Not hating or ignoring the fathers that are “mothers” to their children as well.

Love expands the mind and ignorance dumbs the mind.

Females have more power in the end.

“Feminine qualities” help you grow as a human being.

Loving.
Kind.
Caring.
Affectionate.
Expressive.
Feelings hurt and need to look within to ignore the negativity.
Insecurities.
Self-image.
Health.

Basically self-care.

I could go on forever.

Thinking most will understand what I am attempting to say.

“Masculine qualities” don’t really help you grow on thyself.

Work.
Hands dirty.
Tough love.
Ignore inner self.
Not expressive.
Takes it how it is.
Ego.
Control.
Lazy.

Everything I express is quite stereotypical of each gender.

All I am trying to Express is we need both feminine and masculine traits.

The internal world is more important than the external world.

Labels are quite stereotypical.

Everything is stereotypical.

We need both feminine and masculine traits to become our greatest versions.

I believe “love” is the correct way to handle a situation instead of “ignoring” the problem.

“Love” = feminine.

“Ignoring the problem” = masculine

But to ignore the problem. The problem will only increase.

Love will solve anything.

Without love and to ignore love. You will become blinded instead of becoming who you truly are. A divine being.

If anything I am more “feminine” then “masculine.”

Your inner feelings are worth more than any object or possession.

Self-care is priceless. Without yourself, you couldn’t be here to be you.

Don’t regret not being yourself. If others don’t accept you. That is their loss. Not yours.

Taking care of thyself should be your first priority. Not your last priority.

I am living this life to “love” each and every soul. Most importantly myself. Thyself.

I am not living this life to regret each moment and to be living in negativity.

“Hatred” arising in each moment for no reason. The “hatred” is within yourself and it is nowhere to be found. Hatred is not a disease. It is who you are within the moment you decide to become angry. Hatred is within you and you are hatred. An angry soul.

Emotions are not really you, but then they are you. Emotions are here and there.

Love is infinite. Love is the answer and the only answer.

Ego knows too much and creates more problems.

Love is all I can say……

The more love you spread.

The higher the chance the world will be at peace with each other.

In time the world will come together and unite into one.

All you have to do is believe in love.

Be your greatest version and that is all that matters.

Love is a priceless feeling that few experience. But what really is love. I guess love is self-explanatory.

Love is different for us all.

Just remember to love and to not create more hatred in the world.

Hatred separates.

Love unites.

The last paragraph explains the foundations of the artwork.

When I look into my art I see many stories as well. It is hard to explain.

This is what I wish to say.

This is only for you to read along with. If you have nothing to say after. That is okay with me. All I wish for you to do is listen to me………

I believe our purpose on this earth is to raise human consciousness and to live each moment in love. Whatever you can do to benefit the world. Creating love for you and others. Love holds the highest vibration known to man. Love has the highest frequency out of all frequencies. The meaning of life is life itself. We are all running around in a delusional vehicle of flesh holding a soul within our body. Attempting to become something greater than what we already are. Forgetting life itself in the process. To not even acknowledge life itself. Instead, we are too blind. The love is being forgotten and the ego is not. Ignore living life at a fast pace. Especially with an abundance of negative energy. With more negative energy life will be a slow process. It will feel as if life itself will never end. All you will want is for life to end in a negative mindset. To live your life in love and positivity. You will live each moment in gratitude and the appreciation of existing. Positivity is always the answer. To create more love in the world. Or to create more hatred. You are either hatred or love. When you “hate” yourself there is no “growing.” When you “love” yourself. Each moment is another moment to become your greatest version. Life will feel as if it is a dream when you use love. Existing in itself is mind-blowing. Appreciate this life or you will never appreciate thyself. To ignore thyself is to never be yourself. Each individual has to express what they feel. If you don’t express who you are. Possibly this you that is within you isn’t the you that you wish to be within. Greatness is always around the corner. “New and greater” parts of your being are here. It is just that you haven’t “discovered” them within yourself. Look within. All you have to remember is to never give up on yourself. To give up on yourself is to not love yourself. To love yourself is to express yourself and then you are being yourself. If you aren’t yourself, then this you that is you isn’t you. Expression is everything. Without Expression, you couldn’t express who you are. We are all our own artist of life. Even if you don’t think you are an artist you are. Everything is an expression of another expression. It never ends. Neither does life so you should continue on living. Remember to be “you.” Instead of being a “you” that someone has told “you” to be. Embrace the real “you.”

Live life in fear or love………
