Don’t achieve to be the greatest or the best at something.

Only as best as you can perform.

If you’re better today than you were yesterday, that’s all that matters. Only compare things to yourself. If you compare your flaws and such to others you’ll never be happy. The past you isn’t you. The future you isn’t you. The Current you in this moment is you and nothing else. Learn from your mistakes and move on, don’t hold onto grudges.

I do this often with my art and tell myself it’s not the difference and do not compare, it’s thyself improvements that matter.

Over time you see the slow progress and change.

You’ll be surprised what a year of dedication and hard work can pay off.

Remember to not work yourself too hard or too less, be humble and patients. Things will fall into place.

Creating your reality. It takes time for all and different amounts. Just never give up on yourself.

Perfection is impossible, but you can always improve

The rose never gave up blooming or growing.

So neither should you.

I look at the world and I see endless roses of beauty. All humans have the potential to become anything they want. Anything you dream and wish for.

The rose dreamed of becoming a beautiful rose. So that means a person who’s in full control can achieve anything.

The flower is still and never moves, growing patiently. In the end, the outcome is beautiful. The full life is lived then the flower dies. Just how like us humans live.

We grow and then die. All a process, all growing at different speeds and lengths. Achieving different things.

All different, but looking the same in the end. All just one conscious. In the end all different kinds of beauty. Different flowers, and different beauties.

This life is for you to create and grow into whatever your heart desires. Just remember, never give up.

Resistance will pull you to the floor like quicksand but it’s your mission to fight and battle the resistance.

Goodluck to everyone on their journey of growing and blooming into the most beautiful rose/flower you can.
Don’t sweat things or rush them, remember to be patient and humble about all situations going on in front of you.

Good or bad, they all will create you into the flower you wish to be. Some grow without even knowing others are in control. We’re all different

Have fun creating your flower of life, don’t regret things and live in the moment. You’ll appreciate all the work and time at the end. It’s only when the person is rewarded that they keep going.

But when failing it’s easier to not even try at all. It’s easier to not even grow at all, when not thinking to grow.

When you start to think about your surroundings and what’s in it. You blossom with love within.

Feed your flower with love and not hatred.

Everyone have fun growing your flower!

 

Multi Dimensional Cactus landscape.

cactus

Here is the final and complete painting. I had a lot of fun creating this one.

The feel with paint is a lot different than colored pencils. More child like and less weight on the paper. More free you can say.

When thinking about popular or well known art pieces usually they are paintings. I think I know why, it makes sense in my mind. The canvas cost quite a lot. paint is expensive. Paintings just seem to value more in general. That could be why. Looking at paintings up close is very interesting. you can see every stroke and emotion put into the canvas.

With a drawing you can’t really see where the person started or the strokes, but still as interesting. Don’t get me wrong.

I wish I could paint more after making this, in the painting mood now. Only if I could not care and paint on canvas after canvas. I’ll start painting on things besides canvas, it’s a thought hahaha.

This is a painting of a few cacti, in a field. If you look closely at all the details and colors, using your imagination. You can create a solid picture. I will not tell you what I have painted in the background. That’s for you to create within your mind. What would the purpose of art be if you were given the answer every time.

The guesses for this painting were all over the place Like usual. A few people had a very intricate description of what they saw. On the previous posts. Very good eyes you have, artists see alike.

Your assignment is to look at this painting and create whatever picture you want in your mind.

If you don’t see a cactus at all or anything else. That’s okay, all I ask for is for you to enjoy my work.

If all you happen to see is a bunch of crumpled up colors so be it. Anything is possible. like I always say, my art is neither correct or incorrect. It’s whatever the viewer imagines.

I can say everything I want, but it won’t matter in the end. because you won’t see what I see. You only see what you see. We’ll all see different colors, shapes and figures.

Goodluck.

 

50k views Thank You!!

 

50k

 

 

 

Never got a notification on my phone for 50k views. But I’d like to say thank you for 50,000 views.

When you think of the number 50,000. Unless you know what you’re talking about 50,000 could be small or possibly very large. 50,000 grains of sand are nothing. 50,000 dollar bills is a lot of cash, but then again it’s very little. 50,000 people are a lot of people to me.

Like I said before, It’s not the number that matters. But, it’s interesting.

If tomorrow I was told I had to meet 50,000 people, shake each person hand. Meet every person, i would. Love meeting new people and hearing stories about their lives and such. It’s very interesting to me.

I close my eyes and I can picture a crowd of 50,000 people.

If I was in front of a crowd that big I’d say

“Thank you everyone for creating me and making me who I am today, without your thoughts and Ideas both good and bad. I would’nt be where I am at this very moment. If it wasn’t for every past action, i would’nt be where I’m today. Every moment counts. It’s the little things in life that add up to create the bigger picture. Creating this present moment as of right now. Yes, I’m the controller of this life and I plant my own seed, but all of you have added a special fertilizer. Sprouting new and different ideas in me I never knew I had hiding in me. Helping me grow into who I am. This life is created as a team not alone. You don’t normally see most single individual making it far with zero help from others or negative things said towards them. The people help you get where you want in life, don’t be selfish. live life in gratitude and appreciate the moments as they pass by.”

“Thank you”

Then after that I would answer any remaining questions.

Thank you one last time for 50,000 views! ­čÖé

I’m also at 9 countries with over 1,000 view or more. Thought I’d share this as well. It’s interesting where people look at your blog from. Almost have at least one person from each country.

Thank you world.

Much love <3. I send happiness and love to everyone.

Have a great week ahead of yourself.

There’s much to look forward to.

Never give up on yourself.

 

 

Quote #27

“Teach”┬á (Show or explain to do something to someone.)

“Teacher” (a person who teaches, especially in a School)

I learned to write my name on the right hand corner and the history of my area I live in. All the mistakes we made and they just continue to happen. You look at everything. All material possessions are improving. If you look at now and 100 or so years ago.

Everything has improved a crazy amount. Depending on what you believe technology either is dumbing down or improving. If you ask me, I’d say it’s dumbing us down.

Don’t let the technology take you over. Have the ability to control the technology instead.

When you look at a school 100 years ago than to now. I see the exact same thing. children in lines, raising their hands to speak as if they have no right of anything.

Then I finished with school, not knowing what to do. So I applied for a job. See how I said applied. Everything has to be dated or stamped or noted somehow.

You’re nothing more than a number or a statics to the government. If you look at your social security card there is a number. Your identity is this number.

There’s a number and a stamp. All you’re is this number to the government. If you die whatever there are plenty more humans to continue their process.

A product of the government.

Most jobs are usually like a school.

You talk when talked to. You raise your hand to speak. You’re told what to do, if you question anything or say no you’re fired or told no. You’re put in a line. Just like the desk. Told to work on these sheets of paper. To question nothing and just accept it. Just like when working.

You shut up and just do it. Everyone told everything without talking or asking questions.

If I were to tell you school taught me very little, but I also learned a lot. It’s the way I processed everything in front of me. The experiences turned into knowledge. Maybe you’d think I’m a little crazy. I believe school teaches you things about life in a whole new way. Ways that only make sense to you, if you look at it in all different ways. We all hear and think differently, therefore the individual creates thyself with thoughts and ideas. Creating personality. Defining where you think you belong in this world. Confused or focused thoughts. Ideas of neither great or good. Just what you decide to create your reality, no others.

I’m not saying school isn’t the answer. I understand everyone’s situation. We all live different lives in different positions. On different frequency levels.

That’s just my opinion you don’t have to accept it. We all have opinions and thoughts. All of these thoughts and opinions create us into are person.

If you’re not open minded you only think one thing. Try to accept everyone for who they are and listen.

I learned things in school a whole different way, I was a lower than average kid. All they looked at was the numbers and grades and your performance. Imagine getting a computer plug and plugging it into someone’s brain. The things you could see would be out of this world. Only to be within the individual’s mind. Never to share with the outside world, but to stay within forever an never share an appearance with the outside world.

Your emotions, thoughts, ideas, creations, opions, imagination and many more were just ignored. Never to learn anything about yourself. People teach you a lot about many things, but in solitude you learn much about yourself. Things you never planned on but somehow they happened. Self knowledge seems to be ignored.

Just about the machines in front of you. Living in a world unaware of the self living in the human experience

You’re a being living within another being. The world is much more than you think, the artist pays attention to every little detail in life.

Life itself is a form of art. One big movie directed by you and only you. You live within your eyes. You’re the controller and project what you want.

They improved every classroom and every subject besides art. Art was ignored. We hardly got money for anything. I read a lot about art related things and I came across something.

Poloticicans were talking about how art is a waste of time and unproductive. That it should be eliminated from the school schedules. You don’t learn anything in art. All the other subjects are more important.

I looked more into it and it’s true. They don’t have art in a lot of places anymore. It’s sad, maybe one day it will be changed. Anything is possible. Single people change this world, why can’t you?

School taught me things in different ways. School guided me to follow the examples around me. The way the world influences us is horrible they put us in fear on purpose.

Look at the world and tell me you don’t question anything. It all feels pretty weird to me. Somethings going on.

Maybe in the far future I’ll actually say what I think about certain things on here. I’m just getting started. I’m starting to open up as a person and want people to accept me. If you don’t you don’t. That’s up to you.

The children and animals are much happier beings.

 

 

 

 

An array of colors.

array

Right here seemed to be a good spot to stop and take a picture.

There’s just enough left to paint where I think I’ll have it done next time I post. Not going to rush this, as normal. Taking my time.

With the style I have, the figures and shapes might be difficult to make up. That’s where your imagination kicks in and you stand back and take a look for yourself.

What do you see? The way I paint this isn’t really correct or incorrect, not sure how to explain it. Thinking everyone will understand.

Look closely at the colors and think of objects that happen to be those colors. After that the colors turn into solid shapes. Creating the picture you see in front of your eyes.

But then again, if I draw something not its original color. You’ll never know. The ideas and answers can go on forever. Find one that fits best with you, and stick with it.

The colors and shapes are different for all of us. It’s just how you interpret the picture.

I could explain every little detail in this painting, but if I were to do that it would take a century.

There’s no answer in art, so don’t look for one. Paint as you please and the picture will start making itself in the moment. Be anxiety free and breath. Eveything will be okay in the end.

At times I feel like I’m racing myself to finish the painting, but when I think of an answer, there’s none. Put this into perspective. The moment you create the picture, is the same moment you completed the picture. All moments are the same. So in reality there’s no rush it’s all created in the imagination. To confuse the mind is quite easy, be careful.

Just relax and paint, out of rushing and greed. I’ll ruin the true potential of each piece I make. To never show what I truly have hidden within me.

Enjoy the picture how you please, use that imagination of yours and start bending it around in all different positions.

 

Paint added to the canvas.

catus

When I applied the first stroke of paint to the canvas, I was feeling iffy on how this will turn out.

Like I said before It has been around 1.5-2 years. Haven’t painted something since I’ve been in high school. Don’t have random canvases and paints laying everywhere. I wish I did, maybe one day.

For art being such an expensive subject. Materials can be costly. Which is very ironic in a way, the starving artist saying. No money, but still somehow can afford expensive art supplies over food.

Never really understood why art materials cost so much, but then again, it makes total sense in the end.

Whenever making art I try my best to apply the rule of no anxiety and just Create. I can’t have a second voice in my mind while painting. The painting just needs to be painted without second and third guessing.

Paint, breath and hope for the best outcome. Never give up, but don’t put too much work into your work. Just the perfect amount where you can go at a constant jog and feel comfortable.

Saying that, here I continue painting this and the future will give us an answer.

As of right now I’m feeling decent about where I’m at. It takes a while of filling in the colors and pieces till everything makes sense. using the style I use under certain moments my eyes get very strained with all the lines and colors.

When that happens, I have to take a moment to breath and realize everything is okay. To paint under pressure isn’t to even paint at all, but similar to forcing a job/duty that you don’t even enjoy. Destoying the purpose of true art.

Use love when creating art not tension and anxiety.

As of right now, what do you see in the image above?

Thank you everyone, have a great evening!

 

Update on canvas.

2-2
Sbketch on paper

I started making a sketch for the painting. I always end up putting too much detail into sketches that are’nt needed. opps more practice time, nothings going to hurt me.

After realizing I was putting too much detail into the sketch. I started just drawing out the bigger parts as you can see. The rest I’ll add as I paint and while I finished the sketch on the canvas.

Finishing the sketch, needed to transfer it somehow to the canvas.

Remembering I have a graphite stick somewhere. I looked for it, found it. Scribbled all over the back of the sketch. Pushed the pencil down on the bold areas quite aggressively.

Canvas

 

Here’s what the canvas looks like.

The larger parts of the drawing were showing, not all the little detail. Added that later.

Over time, as I paint, I’ll add little details here and there.

Should have taken a picture, but I was too in the moment of drawing this. Forgot to take a picture.

Took a picture of the final sketch and canvas. Thought it would be interesting to see both.

Empty canvas 10x20cm

cavas

Here we go, I’m going to attempt to create a painting. It has been the longest time since I’ve painted.

I’m neither a good painter or a bad painter. I’ll see what I can come up with. There’s a theme or certain ideas I’m thinking about.

If I fail, I fail. At least I created something.

Something is better than nothing being created at all.

If you ever get artist block just start scribbling like a child with colors with no direction and see what you come up, for all we know it could be a “masterpiece”.

Will create some sketches before I draw on the canvas, Thank you everyone.

 

Quote #26

25

I’m neither correct or incorrect in anything I say, it’s just words scrambled up into thoughts. That means nothing in the end.

………..

Back to the quote.

A kid with bad grades isn’t a bad kid and a kid with good grades isn’t a good kid. The grade you get determines nothing.

A B C D F. That’s what a school tells you that you’re.

When I left school I was a C more like a C-

School told me I was average and my thoughts and ideas were wrong.

Art was a bad idea and I’ll fail, competition is the main focus in life. The more money you make after college you’re happy. Not letting me have ideas or thoughts.

Pretty much every thought I ever had in school or an idea I had, I was rejected and told no.

Art is a waste of time it means nothing, but everything else is important.

I understand why people are depressed and have emotional issues. Think about suicide and all these “diseases”

I’m 100% sure if a hospital tested me I would test insane. You’re labeled into thinking you’re something that you’re really aren’t. Confusing yourself into a sickness.

There’s a saying that says that every artist is insane and crazy. I’m telling you that’s exactly correct. For doing something that is normal to you, but crazy to others.

This world is nothing much but labels.

When shut down, your thoughts are never happy or positive. It’s as if no one even cares about you but yourself.

You’re the only one that believes. A lonely road, but a happy one. It’s how you perceive the world. You live in your reality and only see what you see.

In school this is what happened to me.

Just handed sheets of paper to do and things to fill out and after filing these papers up I got a letter grade.

Like a machine working an order out to make a outcome. The same thing everytime.

A machine even grades papers at this time. Miles and miles of scantrons.

Whatever the outcome is, that’s who you’re.

A big letter C, walking around with legs and arms. Lost and a confused stepping throughout this empty world.

People don’t look at who for you really are. Just a letter grade. Or number score. Or for your label.

I’m becoming better than you, A B C D F 1, 2, 3,4,

It becomes a competition.

The society rejects you for who you really are, then you are set free in this confusing world.

School is not for everyone, it’s a thing you’re forced into. That you have to accept.

In a way school makes you more lost than finding yourself. But that was just me. Everything I was thinking was wrong.

Felt very empty and scared like a shadow chasing itself down a endless hallway.

Create and find yourself.

School doesn’t teach you about the self just the outside world and everything around you but rarely anything from within.

If you make art and have ideas or any dream in general, I’m a person that has no idea who you’re. Talking through the interwebs telling you that it’s possible. If that’s what it takes that’s what it takes.

I’m telling you that your dreams are possible, people will have things to say and many opinions. Your dreams lay within your hands. You just have to ignore the ignorance.

If you look at every other artist in all forms of art, they’re appreciated, but the ones in the “making” no one cares about. No person is greater than the other. Anything is capable.

We all see are dreams it’s just we give up and don’t believe. No one even believes in each other in this world. There are more dream crushers than supports. That’s just the way it goes.

Your dreams are in your hands at this very moment.

When I say these words if you feel anger or aggressive towards me, I did nothing but say what I believe.

Just a single thought that doesn’t even matter in the end.

I ask for no war.

Love is the only thing I ask for in exchange.

Finished the drawing last night.

Never really know what to say or explain after a drawing. I’ll do my best to explain this one.

At the beginning of creating this piece of art, like always, you never know what the final product will look like. You can have ideas and use your imagination.

But however, if you give up on something, nothing will be achieved. This drawing was quite fun to create in the process.

Before making a drawing I have no idea, or plan to what’s next to create. It kinda happens in the moment. I look through pictures and focus on certain things.

Looked through 100’s of pictures and usually there’s one that catches my eye.

This one caught my eye and I sketched this one. It’s as if the drawing lured me in and I didn’t choose the drawing. This life happens to you and everything is aligned in a way.

When using certain colors you feel certain emotions and in that moment of creating whatever piece you’re making. You feel those colors.

The colors in this drawing were calm and stress relieving. Feel a lot more relaxed and stress free after creating this, you get a beautiful feeling after creating a piece of artwork.

It sets you free in a way.

When creating art it’s similar to life being created,┬áhahaha.

A way to explain my thoughts.

Hope you can enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Look at it and observe as you choose. The imagination creates and defines what you see. Also who you’re. We’ll all see something different.

This is a drawing of a zebra.

The guesses through the process of making this were all over the place like usual.

I enjoy confusing the audience at times, it makes you use your own ideas and imagination. Instead of me giving you the answer to my work, step back and look at it. Create your own ideas and thoughts, my ideas are neither correct or incorrect.

Enjoy the drawing as you please. Interpret the drawing into your own reality.

Everyone have a beautiful day!
