Jehovah Rapha- The Lord our healer, I AM your healer
He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”
The kids and I have decided to start doing more paintings together. This is a portion of one we did yesterday. We are thinking of starting to sell them so the kids can start to build their savings accounts and they get to "make pretty art" according to Elexx.
initially I wasn't going to post this bc I didn't think it was good enough. I didn't think it had enough detail. The colours didn't look quite bright enough. It wasn't "instagram" worthy. It's heavily edited as you can tell. I washed it off before I was finished bc it's definitely was not turning into a piece I felt proud of. but then I wondered why the fuck I cared? why am I attempting to achieve a level of perfection in my art, a level that doesn't exist. art is art & it doesn't matter what level you're at. the reality is that there is more to our fucking lives than likes on the gram or shares on Facebook, although I'll admit I'm just as obsessed as the next. we should all just be doing what we love. and doing it without shame, and without comparing ourselves to others. we're just wasting our valuable time in this beautiful world. if you want to make art, make art. if you want to share you're experiences online, do it. if you want peanut butter toast, make some frickin toast. we need to wake up. we need to let go of everything that is holding us back. bc I promise it doesn't matter. do you want to experience pure euphoria? bc I really think that comes with not caring what other people think of you. & plz don't take this as an excuse to be an asshole bc that's not what I'm getting at. we need to support and love each other. we need to bring each other up, and not down. the last few months of my life I have experienced my highest moments & my lowest lows. everything leading me to this moment, the one where I stop caring what people think and start giving a damn about myself, and now I want to carry myself as a person. & for me the first step is my art.

Finally getting a chance to finish editing all of my photos from @the_camp_collective back in June and reflecting on what a blast it was. This is from the Mystery Box Photo Challenge where we were given a crazy combination of props and set free to create our own stories. It was so inspiring and I'm still riding the creative high. They're hosting another camp in the Rockies in October in case this sounds like something you'd like to be a part of!
