Sorry this is a joke in poor taste I know but the algorithm’s really got me down so I’ll try anything rn
“Towards Home” by Jamie Tate | 24"x24" inches | Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas | $1,000⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She says, "My painting style consists of colorful underpaintings, with layers of paint building a surface rich with color and textures. I often use lines and markings for visual interest and to define the space, which is often rather flat. I paint exclusively in acrylic and enjoy the immediacy and flexibility of the medium. I can scrape into the surface or spray with water for drips that allow the underpainting to peek through and create depth, and mystery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I continue building layers and defining the space until the piece feels finished. The palette I work with reflects the landscape, and I see the rich reds and blues and purples combining with the greens and rich umbers and ochre of the Delta. I paint on canvas, paper and occasionally, panel. Every now and then, I play with a new technique or mixed media or new subject matter, but I always go back to the landscape, where I most easily find my creative voice."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

33.3%. That is the approximate amount of the global food supply that bees are responsible for.
Many scientists hypothesize that if these endangered animals go extinct, humanity will not have enough food to continue for very long.
Pesticides used on conventionally grown food and weed killers sprayed in fields/backyards are one of the leading causes for the bees’ sudden rise in Colony Collapse Disorder.
Some things you can do to help bees: shop for local produce at farmer’s markets as often as possible, and ask the farmers if they use pesticides. Support the ones who do not. If you live in cold climates and shopping at farmer’s markets year round isn’t a realistic option, purchase organic as often as you can afford. While the organic food movement has some flaws, overwhelmingly it uses way less pesticides than traditional crops.
Other options include: planting a bee-friendly garden, hanging a bee house outside, and providing a shallow bowl of water (with marbles in it so the bees don’t drown) for them to drink from on the hot summer days. Though it’s the middle of winter, it’s never too early to start planning how you will help these fuzzy lil’ creatures💛🐝🖤
This triptych is 30" high & 56" wide with 1.5" depth. It is full of life with a dragonfly, a tree frog, a grasshopper, ladybugs, bees, and a bunch of ants. It's a fun piece to get lost in, if you're not afraid of bugs!
I’m so thankful for my Scorpio sister, Mridu. She meditates with me almost every day at work: l have learned so many powerful meditation techniques from her! All the best angels 👼 descend upon a cloud from New York... s/o @chrime101
Even if you’re critical of astrology, when someone identifies with their Scorpio sign, they’re most likely creative & spiritually inclined.
Art & spirituality are the best things in life! ✨

Did you know we have a small art gallery inside HB Suites? You can find Mata Art Gallery in Suite 3!
I had seen many photos from travel blogs of this little street, but none of them prepared me for just how charming it was. Circus Lane, in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh, Scotland is a relatively short street, curved, as the name implies, the epitome of charm. It originally served as mews (stables) for the residences surrounding it, but now has a life all its own! Properties rarely come up for sale, but when they do, are snatched up immediately; this street holds some of the highest priced real estate in all of Edinburgh.
Charm is valuable.
I really enjoyed painting this little study that is for a larger painting to come. I hope to soon return to the fascinating city of Edinburgh, to find another hidden gem, like this one!
