Denim Jacket Art

I know I haven’t been on in a while. A lot has been on my min since the COVID scare. I’m OK. Just taking a day at a time, still drawing and made a Denim jacket design of my favorite Dragonball z character. Took all summer to make and very proud of it. I never tried denim painting till I did some research so I wanted to try this is my first time trying it it’s done with a form of fabric paint nine by hand. #ArtTherapy

PTSD Awareness Fox

I suck at sewing, but I bought this build-a-fox kit for a little art therapy that took me out of my comfort zone. I love that you could choose the fabric and thread colors (teal is for PTSD awareness) He's all cockeyed but super cute anyway.

3 Of 3 Last Set Of Photos (for now)! #ArtTherapy #Depression #Anxiety #Inspiration

Here is the last set (for now). For all of you Harry Potter fans, here is Hogwarts Castle at Universal Orlando. It took me 4 visits to get the clouds in the sky the way I wanted them to look. I am very happy with the original on the left. I am amazed by the other two! The center is using an effect called Retro Pop and the bottom is an impressionist style effect. Let me know what you think? #ArtTherapy #Depression #Anxiety #Inspiration

1 Of 3 Found New Features Of My Photo Editing Software #ArtTherapy #Depression #Anxiety #Inspiration

I recently moved back to Phoenix, AZ from Orlando, FL. It was spontaneous and quick but also very stressful. I have only been back a little over a week and had trouble finding a place to stay. I am still looking for work. I needed an escape so I decided to review some of my photos. As I was reviewing and getting ideas for new photos I found a feature in my editing software that I didn't know I had. There are add-ons for artistic effects so I spent a few nights going through my portfolio and trying some. I got some amazing results!! I got into photography because I couldn't draw or paint. These features in the software allow me to give my photos painting like effects. This first set is of carousel horses at Disney World's Magic Kingdom. The one on the left is the original and the one on the right I used a stained glass effect. Let me know what you think? #ArtTherapy #Depression #Anxiety #Inspiration

You Never Know ….. #MightyPoets

You never know what other people see,
When you give time to another human being.

You never know what other people hear,
When you whisper “You’re amazing” in their ear.

You never know what other people think,
When you’re with a friend and abstain from a drink.

You never know what other people dream,
When your smile turns their frown into a gleam.

You never know what other people say,
When you dispense of how your pain melted away.

You never know how others too might act,
When you tell how the wrong way brought you back.

You never know how many tears you’ll bring,
When speaking of those who make your heart sing.

You never know beliefs you just might shape,
By ripping off what’s held your soul in place.

You never know whose life you saved tonight,
By listing tips that helped you quit a vice.

You never know how far your love will grow,
Till you share who taught you “let it go”.

Cause you never know who God has put in place,
Or whose story might be their saving grace.

You see, it’s not about how many likes you get,
Due to this thing we call the domino effect

And if just one person takes in what you say,
You never know how many hearts He’ll change.

It’s those dots we keep trying to connect,
Which are already laid out in retrospect.

For in God’s plan He’s the only one who sees,
Each “You never know” played out just perfectly.

So do not second guess of what you share,
Cause you never know which dots it’s meant to pair.
