. 'Gotta Stop Rearranging Myself for You Before the Fire Is Gone.' . . . Being a people pleaser can be addictive. It's a self-inflicted vice with consequences. You start to become a different person, because it's so nice to make people happy. You forget what YOU even really wanted in the first place. Then you become terrified of what will happen if you stop going out of your way, going over the top, doing more than expected, toeing the line, and meeting expectations. You've roped yourself into a pattern of behavior that negatively affects you and prevents anyone from truly knowing who you are. I never wanted to be a people pleaser. And on paper, I'm the opposite. I'm the student in class who was just supposed to summarize and citate a bunch of old philosopher's philosophies and instead cited nothing and wrote my own allegory just because I wanted to, and was sick of regurgitating what had already been said. I actively try to not fall in the lines on paper. But when it comes to face to face relationships, I have the hardest time going against the grain. But I don't want to arrange myself into a pleasing landscape people can build on anymore. I want to build something instead. . . . #xactoknifeart #papercutart #paintcutcollage #contemporaryabstract #layeredart #layeredartwork #artonpaper #paperart #paperartist #creativehappylife #arteveryday #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #atlantaart #atlantaartist #beboldbecreativebeyou #✂✂ #✂art #artwithastory #instaartist #instaart #keeptryingandyoullgetbetter #beyouandonlyyou #buildsomethingnew #goagainstthegrain
Happy Monday! I’m over gathering inspiration like a little squirrel gathers acorns for the winter. I feel like I work in cycles - paint my heart out, gather inspiration, paint my heart out, gather inspiration....does anyone else do that?? 🐿🌰🥜
It’s because of this spirit, that I teach. It’s because of the curiosity of people… The willingness to work with your fears and the willingness to just move paint around to find it’s magic... I met this young girl this past weekend at my show and I felt like I was looking at the purest essence of spirit that I had ever seen. her wide eyes and bright smile just melted my heart. We painted together and it was quite a gift! I actually got five other people to paint with me. Adults who had never ever painted before. It was amazing! I got to witness their body energy change, their eyes widened and their smiles brighten. My life rocks! #paint #acrylicpainting #bravery #willingness #atlantaartist #inspiration
Everything we want to achieve lies in consistency. If you truly believe in yourself never stop, always improve and keep loyal people around who understand the vision. I'm just grinding super hard now so I can travel and chill for the rest of my life and I want the same for the people around me. Come witness the grind in person at Chow Baby this Saturday! Two hours of live music!! #javonwomack #basementthunder #livemusic #atlantaartist #recordingartist #atlantabands #chowbaby

Day Sixteen: “It’s gonna get worse before it gets better, it’s gonna get worse before it gets better”. Thanks universe, I know and I hear ya loud and clear. Today it’s like the universe sent out one mass group text alerting all the things that could possibly go wrong and cost an excess of funds to act accordingly. What’s that you say, I have a “potential” cavity that needs to be filled immediately? Oh, and I have to pay out of pocket until my insurance reimburses me, sure why not? What’s that universe, my out of warranty car’s headlight is out and a special device is needed in order to change it? Sure, no problem. I’m sorry universe, you said it will cost how much? These setbacks are all weapons of mass destruction fired at me in an attempt to drive me back into the financial comfort zone of nursing. I understand sacrifices, financial and emotional, will have to be made in order to travel on this road. What the universe does not know is that I too sent out a mass text proclaiming how much I want this! This too shall pass and I will remain uplifted and undeterred. 🎨🙌🏽🙏🏽 #abstractart #artwork #art #artist #gwharper #acrylicpainting #artconsultant #artconsulting #artgallery #artcontest #artcollector #FF #instafollow #l4l #tagforlikes #followback #blackgirlswhopaint #blackgirls #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #artbuyer #atlantaartist #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneur

Well I think Poppies, 20”x16” is done, complete with final oil highlights- can you tell where? Also experimented a bit more with using the bokeh. Great exercise in managing reds and greens. #sharingart #art_daily #dailyarts #art_collective #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #creativeuprising #artistic_unity #potpourriofartists #artsbeautifulx #instaart #atlantaartist #atlantaart #contemporaryrealism #traditionalart #comtemporarypainting #flowerart #botanicalart #acrylicart #acrylicpainting
