Days 42 and 43

 Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I don't usually use acrylic painting. I don't like it because I feel that I can't control it well. Basically I'm used to watercolors and ink. Am always have this "love hate" with painting. It challenge me from my deepest feelings and fears.

So yesterday, I decided (every once in a while I do it) to step away from my doubts and fear and I start painting two little goddesses: one in paper and the other in canvas.

At first is always feel like a battle but then it flow and I'm calm and happy to try this medium.

It's not perfect. I still have a long way to conquer painting and I will don't give up.

I'm looking forward for more painting and practice!

​Why a goddess: a reflexion about the power of the feminine

In my last post, I wrote a brief summary of how I started the #365daysofyourinnergoddess project. But my mind is a very active mind, inquisitive, addicted to work, tireless (at least is how it feels). And still have some words around my mind, words inside my head and spirit.

I used to have had and still until these days, problems with the word god or goddess, because I feel it so close to religion. I know that this can sound silly or meaningless but is the way I feel it. So I start to name some of my illustrations: Miss Something. But it felt empty and frivolous, because in my inner self all are goddesses when I looked them so that's why I've decided to name them goddesses.

More than goddesses spirits connected to a Universe that is invisible to our own eyes, a kind of mystery with recognizable symbols or atributes. Some of them very terrenal other magicals but always always connected to nature and evolution. 

For me there's something sacred in the little things and not so little of the evolving  nature. For me that is the beginning of life.

I don't have much time to read as I want it. But every now and then I dedicate myself to investigate, read and learn about the themes that my instinct or my dreams tell me.

I know that this project is start to a new path on my creativity work. It's something that I can feel it, very deep inside of me.

So it's obvious that I believe in the power of the feminine and for feminine I understand the power of healing and grow and care for our surroundings and believe in the light and darkness. Accepting the wholeness that live inside of us only with love and wisdom. 

Answering the question: why goddesses?  •  To connect with my sad spirit.  • To heal my wounded soul.   • To connect  with the transcendence of life and death. • I believe in the beauty in all of us, yes all of us.   • I believe in the beautiful and evolving nature.   • To create something that makes me happy everyday.   • To learn something new every day.   • To challenge my mind and soul.   • To discipline myself with art and love.   • To believe more in myself.   That's for now, more thoughts on this project later. Thanks for reading!   🌸✨🌿

365 days of evolution

 Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

365 days of a project (no matter what is it) it's a big challenge. In the middle of working other projects I've decided to start a new one: 365 days of your inner goddess ( yes, I'm a little crazy, don't you think?). In my mind this project is just an ongoing routine. I almost draw everyday, no matter the material, so for me is just making it official. And that's how I begin this compromise.

I needed for healing. I needed for creativity. I don't know why exactly but I really needed to start something everyday that challenge my mind and my sad spirit.

And without doubt, the theme of goddess just came clearly.

Why a goddess?

I'm a feminist and also an outcast, I don't belong to any group or religion, but  I  do believe in the power of the feminine and nature and in the power of creativity. I have a profound love for art and the creative world and I'm not exagerating if I said I can't live without it.

Because I'm poor it also start as a way to create something new for my etsy shop (toshisworld.etsy.com). Later I change my mind. I'm still poor but I don't want money control my mind and my feelings. So I posted some of the mini paintings on my shop, and soon they will not available. I'm still conceptualizing what to do with them and if I will creating some prints later.

 Mini paintings and drawings

My favorite medium in all the world is paper, watercolour, ink and because I live in a tiny apartment, my work is mostly miniature. My goddesses are tiny, no more than 5" x 7" , perfect for a beautiful little frame and a personal shrine.

Right now, I'm loving the way how they are evolving and how little by little they start to make me happy.

Stay tuned for more! 🌸🌿💙 

New beginnings

I'm back. The time of incubation is over. These three months I've been working really hard to finish and give form to ideas and artwork. 

I was thinking of closing this blog, but I still have to practice my second language in all the forms possible.  

So, here I am.  

It's time for new things. It's time to recover other things. It's time to keep going and work even harder.  It's time for new beginnings.

I'm still processing some ideas and concepts. It's an ongoing work and process. For now I can share some of the things that I'm developing and accomplished:

🔹 I finish a very beautiful project: illustrations for a children's book. Hopefully the next few weeks will be out of the printshop.  

🔹 I start a whole year project: 365 days of your inner goddess. For a following of the project and images you can visit my IG (Instagram.com/nwpb_art) and my Ello page too. This project have a lot of evolving ideas and dreams.  I will write about it later. 

🔹  In a few weeks I'm starting a new class. I will learn something new. 😉

🔹 I opened an account on Periscope (you can search and looking for me at nwpb_art), I planned to share some live videos about my arts and process.  

There's a lot more  that I need to work, like found the time to develop my jewelry line and home decor and also give it a try (one more time) to my Patreon page and learn how to be happy. 😎

Stay tuned for more!
