Pinned toot

Am I a bonsai?

If I were to intentionally trim, and prune, and cut away everything I despise about myself. The imperfect, the unwanted, the raw, the unkempt.

Would I be beautiful? My idealized self? Would others see the dedication and care I invested?

Or would they only see captivity?

The mighty made small. Twisted and conformed to artificial beauty? Roots and branches that took a lifetime to grow, and seconds to trim.

The mere image of a tree.

May my branches reach freely and find form.

Logging on feels like coming home ♥️

When people apologize for something, often their first instinct is to try to explain why they did what they did. I think this is one way to process your actions to determine specifically where and how you went wrong. That's good stuff to think about, but it doesn't make for a good apology. Keep those thoughts to yourself, or save it for a later conversation after you've sat on it a while. The core of a good apology is acknowledging that you made a mistake, and how you'll do better in the future.

Sometimes I feel like I need to reexamine the way I spend my time

reminder that you, the person reading this, are incredibly valid

love languages are important but something i never see discussed is the difference between how people want to give love and how they want to receive it and that's big distinction for me

I painted over an old painting from this series (it was too yellow), but somehow this canvas doesn't want to be a painting I like.
Then I changed up the format. And I painted outside, yay! #mastoArt #traditionalArt #creativeToot #abstractArt #painting

Noticed my pics were a bit blurry. So here are the *sharp *pics I took from my art today! Bonus: my to do list for today! I need to get a bit out of my habits, and this helped! #mastoArt #traditionalArt #creativeToot #abstractArt #painting

I'm a messy monster and I really need to clean up my workspace. I'm the next few days I should have everything I need to upgrade my electroforming tank. I need to actually make enough space to do something.
