"There is peaceful. There is wild. I am both at the same time." | This is one of my favorite fabric stores in Los Angeles. They have a BEAUTIFUL range of fabrics, especially wool gabardine, ONE OF MY FAVORITES. 😍 Next time you're in LA check out B. Black & Sons on Los Angeles St. in DTLA.
Thank you to the El Paso Museum of Art for featuring and inviting me to the Gardens of Earthly and Unearthly Delights Exhibition. I was honored to be among nationally recognized regional designers for such incredible event! 🌿
This is @misakikawai and I really admire how lose and free the work is. Many adults who work in a child like state get made fun of. They say we can't draw anything real and that's why our work is so abstract. I assure, we all can, we just chose not to because it's boring. I mean, where is the creative challenge in that? its just technique and that I mastered by the age of fourteen. It is so much harder to draw like a child then you think. If you don't believe me, try it yourself. It took me 25 years to figure out how to create without the fear of imperfection. To look forward to the "mistakes" because without them I would never push myself harder to come up with new ideas . The mistakes ARE the art. For the first time in my life I am creating without judgement. It's really liberating
My mouth is my biggest asset and my greatest nemesis. Usually there's a foot in it. I take risks in my life and in my words. I get it wrong all the time. But I'm never going to silence myself because of a fear of embarassement. When I say something "dumb" I don't get embarrassed anymore because I can't spend my life trying not to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings. I used to care more about not hurting a strangers feeling than honoring my own. But only caring about myself is not an antidote. So I say sorry, I ask why it was wrong to say what I said, I seek clarity and understanding. I use my empathy. Sometimes I agree with them other times I don't. It took a long time to get to a place where I speak with my truth but I act with kindness.
