Inspiration comes from so many places for me. I could say it as a general statement that nature is my inspiration, but I know it’s so much more then that and I often struggle with how to put it into the right words. Each painting is sparked by a combination of things... a simple word like “freedom.” Or the way I saw the wind catch the field grass and It made me want to find a way to add that fluid motion. Or the simple inspiration that there is always more to learn and explore so I just try something uncomfortable and keep working through it. I honestly never saw this life coming in a million years and maybe one day it will look completely different. But for now I’m just trying to be present everyday. I’m trying to learn and grow so I can discover more about myself and this world I live in. Thank you all for being a part of this crazy journey. You guys are the best!! [ new art coming soon: “Spring Florals no.2” 30x30 acrylic on canvas ] dm if interested. #kendracastilloart

I might have a slight bias 😉, but some of the best wall art in Seattle is at Foxycut Salon (@foxycut ). I was thrilled when @miguel.vigil decided to go with Aramis Hamer for his wall mural. She took his vision and made something truly magical. Her work definitely complements the creativity that lives within that space. #aohamer

Happy Sunday morning friends! Hopefully you don't have the Overall Blues. But if you're irrigating, you probably do. Check out the rest of my original song at the link in my bio!! #roamingrollermusic #irrigationwoes #originalsong
This morning we woke up in Big Sky country. All around us are towerinf mountains, some still dressed at the top with snow. The sky is deep blue and the air is crisp. And the best part? God's mercies are new. . He is not tired of my frustrations, my prayers for more grace. He has made me new again this morning, as fresh as the creation around me.
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.” -J. B.

I was in the presence of an angel today 😍
I absolutely love this pattern from the Itimad-ud-Daulah mausoleum walls, which I learned in the @samira.mian course I'm taking. I'm really happy with how this painting turned out in spite of the little accident I had - I call it my moment of zen! Even though it happened early on, I decided to keep painting and enjoy the process. I'm glad I did! * * * I'll be redoing this piece sometime in the near future, as well as playing with some other color variations. Thank you Samira for always being such an inspiration, and thank you to all the people who like my pictures for your constant encouragement. I feel deep gratitude in my heart! * * * * * #samiramianonlinecourse #geometry #sacredgeometry #islamicgeometry #islamicgeometricart #compassandruler #traditionalart #spiritualart #gratitude #arttherapy #danielsmith #piemontitegenuine #indigo #schmincke #watercolors #watercolor #watercolorart #artistsoninstagram #instaart #portlandartist #pdxartist #pnwcreatives #saunderswaterford #portugueseartis
Just reflecting on my love at the moment. It’s crazy to think we’ve chosen each other for 22 years now! Our anniversary is coming up soon. . . . . We have traveled to beautiful places together, made two homes our home, we have lost a father, buried a child together, we have birthed the fruit of our love four times, we have watched our babies grow, we watch each other grow, we love when it’s hard, walk away when we can’t stand each other, yell a time or two, make up even more....we have dreams and plans together and we also do our own thing. We are imperfect, but that’s ok. . . . . Love isn’t easy and I firmly believe it doesn’t withstand the test of time based on a “feeling”. Love and marriage takes choosing each other daily even when we don’t “feel” like it... but because of those choices through the years the 💕feels💕 are still there...and stronger! . . . . As we get ready to celebrate our marriage, I’m offering up prayer for your marriage, your love, your broken heart and/or your hope for all the above. Love is worth it all. ❤️

Is there anything better than getting out of town for a few days? We’re in Portland for my bachelorette party, and I’m having the best time!

Sometimes I have to look through old photos to get inspired again. These two leather bags have been sold awhile ago but stay tuned because I’ve got some in the making and will have them posted within a few days🦋🌵
“Everyone goes through their own trails and tribulations. If someone shows an effort to give you want you need & what you crave. Make sure you let them know you see it and appreciate it. Make sure you show them you care too! Match their efforts! Just remember their needs may be different than yours.”
Are you an artist? 🎨 Tell me your most favorite tool or art material you’re using in your work right now. I’m always looking for new things to experiment with to keep my creativity flowing...and I know you are too. 😘 . I’ll go first....my most favorite thing right now is my large brushes. They allow me to cover larger areas of the canvas and push me to be looser and more free in my work. The one I’m holding here is a @liquitexofficial Professional Freestyle Large Scale Brush. If you work large like I do, it’s a must have!!!! And it’s perfect for fluid acrylic paints! 💙 . I can’t wait to hear your favorites!!! . . . #liquitex #acrylicpaint #acrylicpainting #acryliconcanvas #canvaspainting #paintingoncanvas #artiststudio #artstudios #artinspiration #colorfulart #artforlife #curatedlife #thenativecreative #dscolor #howihue #livecolorfully #livecolourfully #portlandart #portlandartist #pdxart #pdxdesign #pdxblogger #portlandblogger #pdxartist #pnwartist #pnwcreatives

Friendly PSA: Kindness is a circle, it goes around and around. 🌿 Just like this art print of this watercolor wreath I painted that is available on my Etsy. 😘🍃 . But really — I’ve been helping organize different things along weeding a little to help out my sister and it has made my heart so happy to help with what I can. Remember to spread a little kindness whenever you can! Offer a helping hand to someone who needs it. Sometimes you don’t have to look very far. . I’ve been enjoying time with my sister and nephew in Washington the past few days so much 💕🌿 Today I’ll be heading back home, which I’m eager for, but I also cherish any sister time I get and especially my darling nephew. 😘👶🏼 . What are you kicking off your weekend with? So far I’ve been weeding, but when I get home, you know I’ll be tending to our chickens AND of course relaxing a little with my famm and hubs. 💕☺️🐓 .

two weeks ago today - one of those celebrations you’d just want to do over and over again #shesaidjep || when the tent was flooding after hours of heavy rain and @jessekeefer promised the sun would come out for the ceremony - I was skeptical, but the proof is in the photo! 🌤 @bodegaridge delivers!! || 📷: @shariandmike . . . . #yyjweddings #victoriabcweddings #vancouverislandweddings #pnwwedding #pnwedding #victoriaweddingplanner #bodegaridge #pnwcreatives #pnweddings #yyj #westcoastweddings #weddinginspiration #weddingday #weddingceremony #florallove #bodegaridgewedding #bodegaridgeresort #gulfislandwedding #galianoisland
fatalism and renewal
Мама вчера на моё платье смотрит, стонет:"О боже... Ты в этом на улицу выйдешь? Знаешь, иногда ты одеваешься как богиня, я смотрю на тебя и восхищаюсь! Но иногда... Голая спина, коротенькая юбочка, метры тюля! Что это? Катя, ты же не балерина на сцене! Это не образ, это кошмар!!!" "Это не образ, это розовенькое пухленькое, объевшееся булочек, облачко!"- фыркаю я и надеваю балетки. Честно говоря, слышать от мамы слово "образ" очень смешно. Мама не знает, что мне очень смешно, мама глядит на мои балетки, сползает вниз, по стене. Шипит:"Каблуки... Каблуки хоть надень, а не эти старушечьи тапки!" Я продолжаю пихать свои ноги в балетки. Мама продолжает любоваться моей полностью голой спиной. Пыхтит:"В офис в таком виде... Разврат! Что о тебе подумают коллеги?" "Артёму все равно, он, кажется, не замечает во что я одета,"- пожимаю плечами я. "А Денис что подумает? "- продолжает настаивать мама. " Что-нибудь да подумает, если опять же, заметит во что я наряжена,"- хмыкаю я. "А Лейла?! Лейла, если увидит тебя в этом, то точно все заметит и тут же уволит за несоблюдение офисного дресс-кода!" "О нет!"- смеюсь я,-" Лейла мой вкус полностью одобряет!" Мама молча признаёт поражение и поджимает губы. Мама мой вкус полностью не одобряет.
It’s been awhile. Warming up with a quick sketch of @pernilleoerum #drawthisinyourstyle Love her work so much!!! #fangirlingsohard
Here is a snapshot of how I left my desk right before I went on holiday. 😊 The Girl In Atelier art print - and one I haven't uploaded yet. 💖 These are a series of art prints I created to show off one of my favourite styles and portray a distinct part of my personality. The part of me that loves to daydream, walk around cities aimlessly, buy flowers and fruits and swim and hum to music. By doing this I hope to be a little more open in a world where so many are pretending to be someone they are not.. What would an artwork about your personality depict?👌. . . . . #letmedrawthat #femalecommunity #illustratorsofig #createcultivate #illustraties #amstergram #ondernemerschap #createcultivate #editiorial #illustragram #pnwcreatives #artforchildren #drawmore #ipreview @preview.app #kidlitart #childrensbooks  #childrenillustration #childrensbookillustration  #childrensillustration #childrenswritersguild  #illustragram  #illustratenow #illustrationartists  #illustrationoftheday
