Details of another work in progress
My first hand pinched cup made at @studioasobi beautifully glazed in a turquoise blue like my favorite sea. Very happy to have Hui Wen and baby Tobie over this morning, people who have the same hearts and minds towards life, craft, working on home studio set ups, living a simple life making meaning in our own terms. Hearts full 💙
I am the storm clouds. I am the sea. I am the white seagull lost in a dream. I am the oceans current that takes fear from the soul. I am the waves that dance all day long. I am the wind that roars for the voiceless. I am the seekers of freedoms embrace. // Kea Gargiulo // Photo credit unknown. 🌸 #worthy #heart #depression #theblackdog #poetofinstagram #13reasonswhy #supermoon #beyondblue #mindfulness #meditation #elizabethgilbert #writer #gratitude #healthymind #moonlight #ladygaga #love #followme #gratitude #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalillness #katherinelangford #flowers #beautywithin #motherearth #rain #embracetheblues
我的心裡長住著一種藍色,很不經意時會出現讓我什麼都做不了。那份藍色也讓我一直畫出一片片的你們,在你們的世界很安靜。💙
Sunny days spent painting sunny skies ☀️
From an idea to a reality. The bottom picture shows the pieces roughly put together, and the top the finished painting.
5/? As I continue to work on this series I find myself wondering how many pieces it will consist of. Will I run out of materials before I feel it is complete? Or will it come to a natural end?
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. ~ Audrey Hepburn #audreyhepburn #miracles #believe #depression #theblackdog #poetofinstagram #13reasonswhy #supermoon #beyondblue #mindfulness #meditation #elizabethgilbert #writer #gratitude #healthymind #moonlight #ladygaga #love #followme #gratitude #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalillness #katherinelangford #flowers #beautywithin #motherearth #rain #embracetheblues
Details of another work in progress. As I continue to work on this series I find myself falling even more in love with the natural lines created by the pieces of peeled paint forming the mountains. All of this just a happy accident from cleaning the layers of paint off of a spray shield at work.
Works in progress: peeled paint assembled on paper with washes of colour.
Chasing light ✨
#lyttlesea Just want to be like you girls 🌊
#lyttlesea Crafting sea magic for myself 💙
days 86 - 91 of #100tenminuteskies ☁️ sky shapes. it’s hard to believe i’m almost done with this inconspicuous project. & although i haven’t made a piece every single day, i’ve come to appreciate the sky even more (which i didn’t know was possible), and i’ve evolved my approach / original idea to something that makes me very happy, only discovered by not giving up ✨ #the100dayproject
Going to get this one framed 🤩 I’m still deciding which orientation to hang it! I’m digging this vertical way (not how I painted it, but it’s growing on me) which way do you like?? Vertical or horizontal?

🌊 很喜欢 静静地 一个人 靠着海 深呼吸 生日卡片上你仍写着想要飞就去飞,你和我们的猫咪守护一个家等我回来。如此幸运有你💓 习惯两个人的生活仍不能忘记和自己独处,内心才能无限大。
Experimenting with the changing English weather 🌦 happy results :)
有時候烏雲揮之不散,睡醒之後心裡仍是莫名的陰天。只好閉上眼張開手擁抱風,想起「天不晴心不陰」的態度,努力著。☁️
I would tell my little self ... I secretly hope you never truly know yourself fully for their is something beautiful in being gloriously surprised by who you are as you go through life getting to know all the petals of your flower. But I would also tell you this one thing - Enough is enough and you my dear are more than enough. 🌸 What would you tell yourself ??? #selflove #worthy #worthyofpraise #depression #theblackdog #poetofinstagram #13reasonswhy #supermoon #beyondblue #mindfulness #meditation #elizabethgilbert #writer #gratitude #healthymind #moonlight #ladygaga #love #followme #gratitude #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalillness #katherinelangford #flowers #beautywithin #motherearth #rain #embracetheblues #writersblog #happy
0320 sleepless nights, diving in. 🌊
#LyttleSea The other day my hands were filled with resin and I was stuck at my table. At 7pm he rushed home to cook dinner worried that I would be hungry. At 8pm I was still at my table making art, and asked if he could help cook the vegetables. By 9pm he was still waiting, I was finally firing the top a little and kept my art pieces aside ready for dinner. I am incredibly blessed to have someone so patient and supportive of my art making. Thank you @theyodellingwanker 😘 Seascapes, this time diving deep.
#Lyttlesea Another sea world filled with Lyttle People.

“浪來了,迎接它。” 昨天朋友私訊說下一次回小島開#我想你的100個海邊 畫展。一直想把海邊的畫整理好開始寫書,一堆的想法難以串成。就這樣6個月過了還沒開始。哎,哪一天書真能寫好第一站一定要先回蘭嶼的。🌊
Float under the night stars. 💫
Ain’t nothing wrong with feeling blue this summer @winerackcanada #moustachefriendly #torontonian #mfjcsf #bluseallday #bluesangria 💙 #embracetheblues
Floating.
#我想你的100個海邊 107/100 Wild and free - 自由 人生無論選擇了那一個方案,向前看的人一定可以找到屬於自己的幸福。即使那一段旅程大風大浪也是一種滋味。
Sea textures 🌊 Letting go of perfection, let chaos make beauty.
#我想你的100個海邊 106/100 Yesterday night I saw pottery pieces by Sawada Masako and the energy in her fluid glazing, strokes and confident use of colours just made me stare for a long time. I am hardly a dynamic one, my art is always carefully drawn and each stroke inked with care. Perhaps so, I gravitates towards the kind of expressions with no inhibitions. I came home and there was an energy within waiting to be released. There was an artwork with my girl drawn, crafted forms on beautiful watercolour background. All I wanted to do was destroy that. I took out the acrylic paint and painted over, layers of bold strokes unlike my character. The strokes are raw, splatters uncontrolled. Here’s another face of the sea when calmness disappears. Rolling waves and their intense energy. 🌊
Slow progress is still progress💪⏳
Blue. I have had a weird relationship with this color my whole life up to recently. Recently this changed, i now respect, admire, fully indulge, drool on and worship all blues. What better way to rock the blues than with long earrings! Who else loves a blue? Are there any colors you struggle to be friends with? #loveblue #bluemakesmefeelgood #idigblue #lapisandlabradorite #lapisearrings #lapis #lapislazuli #bluelabradorite #theblues #embracetheblues #sogood #ihavebeenmissingout #longearrings #carlaswopejewels

#LyttleSea Morning light ✨
I actually brightened this photo A LOT, and it’s still dreary. Upstate New York at its finest! 😜 Somedays are just like this though. You get it, right? Dark and dreary, feeling tired and unmotivated. We all have these days in our life and we must embrace them, feel all the feels and then move onward and upward. Don’t beat yourself up for having days like this. Just grab your @raedunn ugh mug and celebrate where you are, knowing it won’t last forever! #ugh #embracetheblues #grayday #upstatenewyork #movingonup #cloudyskies #sunshinecomeback #justanothernewyorkday #inspire #mompreneur #girlboss
#LyttleSea Holding the sea in my hands. Been missing the waters for way too long. 🌊
Très chick le sac a main. Elegantness and beautifulness are combined in this unique handbag made of already well used and loved Jeans.

遠方的天空看見一架又一架的飛機起飛。我坐在這裡耳機裡的音樂放到最大聲,隨著旋律像海浪般讓思緒游動。就這樣畫出了心裡最安靜的地方。光與海✨
#LyttleSea Drifting, is the word to describe my life for so many years. Drifting through, sometimes swept away by strong currents desperately trying to make sense of everything. Drifting on, going with the flow of unexpected currents. Nothing in my life had been planned for. Drifting till my sharp edges are even out, the frosty bits beginning to shine. In my lyttle shell, I am shining. 🌟

#LyttleSea “The light is so beautiful now and I just want to draw. But there is so much work.” “Go draw, work can wait tonight.” My husband always know how important it is for me to draw. Maybe it also means late night today, sometimes drawing is like surfing. When the light is right, it’s just right and everything feels perfect. ✨
Taking my time on this one🎨
I hope you’re in for a magnificent weekend. Enjoy! 💙 This hoop is listed in my shop. Here you can see up close its beads and notions. Now I’ve started working on its mate!
That’s where you truly grow, out there in the discomfort of the unknown, out there amongst those wild few that give you all of their soul, out there in the making of forgotten beauty, out there where all that’s welcome is you. // Kea Gargiulo // photo credit unknown. #selflove #worthy #worthyofpraise #depression #theblackdog #poetofinstagram #13reasonswhy #supermoon #beyondblue #mindfulness #meditation #elizabethgilbert #writer #gratitude #healthymind #moonlight #ladygaga #love #followme #gratitude #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalillness #katherinelangford #flowers #beautywithin #motherearth #rain #embracetheblues
#LyttleSea He came up with the name for my new adventures in seascapes - Lyttle Sea. The past few weeks had been quite crazy at work. Sometimes I just want to dive into my happier place, often late nights till early mornings but as long if I can spend time drawing the sea, it always fills my heart with gold and serenity. The people in my shell is one third the size of my pinkie finger, with a 000 brush my hand shakes with every stroke. Each shell takes a few days to make, a real test of patience to set the resin aside and not overwork it. I sand down the shells, smoothern the edges and these processes reminded me of the jewelry making days back in Sydney. Azure blue skies, cerulean waters at Bronte and Coogee, carefree days of being 18. Everything has changed since then, except this heart that wants to spend everyday doing what I love. Or at least fight to clear all the work to have all the time for salt and light.
Memories from the south. The sea really is that turquoise! These colors are captivating, it’s a beautiful inspiration for a blue watercolor. And a nice change from my countryside, the landscapes are all green here! . . Souvenir du sud. La mer est vraiment turquoise comme sur la photo! Ces couleurs sont envoûtantes, c’est une belle inspiration pour une aquarelle bleue. Et un changement radical par rapport à ma campagne, les paysages sont tout vert ici! . . #seasonspoetry #beautyyouseek #smallmomentsofcalm #awhisperedbeauty #aquietstyle #tinytinymoments #embracetheblues #sea_sky_nature #colorgram #lovethesea #alittlebeautyeveryday #fleurstagram #cettesemainesurinstagram #embracingtheseasons #nestandflourish #ihavethisthingwithblue #theeverydayproject #signsofspring #whimsicalwonderfulwild #flowersandotherstories #moodforfloral #popyacolour #colorcolourlovers #oceantherapy #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #prendreletemps #asecondofwhimsey #coastalliving #seascape
#LyttleSea Sometimes the sea is a dark place, waiting for some light to pass through. ✨
#LyttleSea With the sea in my heart, life is always filled with love and light. It’s always enough. 🌊
#LyttleSea My sea glistens under the afternoon sun.
Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know until you lived through it. Honour your path. Trust your journey. Learn. Grow. Evolve. Become. #believeinyourmagic #embracetheblues #womenrisingaboveadversity
#LyttleSea I wish to be you. 🌊
Wild fields take kindly to the dance in my head as I stray along to the beat of my drum. The comfort from those unaided and free makes for a wolfpack secluded by dreams. 🐺🥁// Kea Gargiulo // Photo credit unknown. #depression #theblackdog #poetofinstagram #13reasonswhy #supermoon #beyondblue #mindfulness #meditation #elizabethgilbert #writer #gratitude #healthymind #moonlight #ladygaga #love #followme #gratitude #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalillness #katherinelangford #flowers #beautywithin #motherearth #rain #embracetheblues
#LyttleSea My girls seemed to be the happiest in waters 🌊
#LyttleSea I often talked about the ocean and how I love it. We would’t put on repellant and sunscreen to enter the waters as the chemicals will cause coral bleaching. I continue to love beach combing as it brings me so much joy, but always mindful to not take any endangered shells or closed shells so that hermit crabs find their way home. I tell my kids to keep looking for these treasures on the sea, pick them, hold them, notice them and learn to respect them and take home a few not all. I understand the implications of food choices and can only marvel at how some friends can turn vegetarian to practice what they believe - stop animal cruelty and save the oceans. It’s hard for us to do so, I love having a full plate of mussels and enjoy the flavours. But we play our part in other ways by cutting down the use of plastic. The fact is as a modern consumer, every action we make even just using a piece of paper depletes resources somewhere. But Mother Earth had always suffices when we learn to respect it, take what we really needed. At the end of the day, you me and everyone else live life with such different practices and beliefs, it’s all about mindfulness, respect and having enough. My ocean worlds and their beautiful sea girls 🧜‍♀️
#LyttleSea 海边的拾荒女孩 我喜欢在海边捡贝壳,只带回open face寄居蟹无法在里头居住的这种。我常常觉得贝壳里隐藏着好多秘密。我不停地画,它让我拥有不同美丽的世界。此刻轻轻呵护我指间的这片海 🌊
