Collecting images for tomorrow’s #innermusemembership workshop (for those interested, sign up tonight so that you can join us tomorrow) as we will be creating our #musejournals, which are basically personal books of inspiration and empowerment. 💫

Georgia O’Keeffe is huge #museinspo for her truth, courage, and dedication to her craft. When I’m feeling down on myself, when I’m too in my own head or caught up in self-doubt, I think of Georgia and she brings me back to earth.

She painted what was in her heart and she didn’t give a shit if people thought her flowers looked like female body parts. 🌸 She let them believe what they wanted and kept going. She was relentlessly dedicated to her craft and her art, camping outside in all kinds of harsh conditions to capture the landscapes as she wanted to. She was quoted several times by saying she experienced fear all the time, but she never let fear stop her. At the end of her life when she lost her eyesight, she turned to sculpting as her outlet when she could no longer paint.

Since starting my #innermuse practice I’ve found a lot of joy and satisfaction in studying, researching, going deeper on the people and objects that inspire me. There’s so much richness and story out there waiting to be discovered.

“The Guardians of Imagination” - This one started as a quick sketchbook drawing, but I got hooked and made it a gouache painting, black and white, in the spirit of Inktober.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣This one is to our soul sisters in art. They keep the lights of imagination switched on, and support others to do the same. They bring the best of the past times to this day, so let’s thank them, and let’s be sisters to them as well.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣——⁣⁣
⁣⁣This painting is my last contribution to this year’s Inktober. I am currently working on a big illustration project, and want to focus on finishing it next week. My weekly blog post is also a little late, but I am planning to blog tomorrow on Sunday at https://www.peonyandparakeet.com ⁣⁣

In winter, if the sun makes her sleepy appearance, it’s necessary to take as many product photographs as possible before she disappears again 🌞 Prototype of an Aphrodite plate fresh from the kiln 🌕

#inktober2019 day 17. I wasn’t going to do a #inktober today, but I went back to a sketch from yesterday and this happened. I was just going to do the sketch, but then wanted to add a background. I did the background digitally on my phone. I have no idea how to do digital, so bear with me. Swipe to see the sketch. Do you like it with or without the background?

“Ornament” - Inktober drawing challenge, Day 17⁣
⁣⁣
⁣This prompt is especially close to my heart. It reminds me of how important it is to become the true self. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣When I studied industrial design, I realized that my expression was too ornamental. “Simplify, simplify,” my teachers said. Plastic stuff that we were taught to design has to be manufactured as cheaply as possible. But I took another route and geared towards art. Ten years have passed by, and I still struggle to accept how ornamental I see the world. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣But that’s how it is. To me, an ornament is a time machine. I can travel through the history of humanity by merely picking shapes of any era. It also brings me closer to my roots. My grandfather studied drawing, and my father drew to me when I was a child. These two men passed away a long time ago. I never got to see my grandfather, and I wasn’t very close to my father. But now there’s this strange yet pleasant feeling of being who I am meant to be. I continue the chain of generations, fulfilling not only my dreams but also my father’s and grandfather’s secret wishes. These people enabled me the life I am living, and I am giving back to them by drawing and designing - being as ornamental as I can be.⁣

For #fallforcostume by @redthreaded "Last": The last thing I put on when dressing up - a #necklace 
These are also the last two #pearl #necklaces I've knotted.
.
I'm much in love with the coral one and happy to have found a photo where I am wearing both my first and #last costume items together. It'd make a decent miniature portrait,  don't you think? 😉❤

Love the look of this ring surrounded by dust from hand polishing. I recently discovered that using the sunshine satin finish polishing cloth before I tumble leaves a gorgeous clean shiny finish.
