‘Bee Emotional’
•
Have we given ourselves enough time to grieve our losses? •
I lost my beloved dog Bo on July 1st. Despite all my efforts to save him, Father Time was much more powerful than I could have imagined. 
I took time off of work to grieve, but it still sneaks up on me from time to time. •
I’ve learned to embrace these fragile moments, and fully immerse myself into the feeling of grief and sorrow. 
I’ve learned that tucking our emotions away only creates more pain later on. •
When I feel any emotion I allow it to be fully what it needs to be, so I am able to heal completely from the circumstance that lead to that particular feeling. •

This gal puts a smile on my face every time I see her. She knows how to be joyful in any situation. •
I can’t begin to explain how truly blessed my life is; even in the scariest of times, the universe found a way to take me by the hand and lead me into the light. 
I’m so thankful everyday for the beautiful people and circumstances that has shaped my world thus far. •
Our lives are truly magical if we choose to see the magic in them. 💕
•
Keep moving forward, one step at a time. •

Have you ever had the privilege of speaking to the old man in the tree? 
He is quite the talker, with more wisdom than anyone else. He’s been around for many centuries, and he has seen so much. •
Do yourself a favor next time you’re next to a tree, sit and just listen to what it has to say; I know you’ll be a better person for it. 💕
•
***This piece and several others will be on display at @local_color_studio_gallery in April.
•
Reception: Saturday April 6th 
from 6pm-9pm. 💜

Hmm.. I’m not sure what to say about this piece; he triggers an emotion, but it’s so complicated that I can’t find the words. •
The word I hear is surrender. •
There is obviously some sort of disturbance, and even though internally he’d like to change what’s going on, he knows that would just make a bigger mess of the situation.
So, he surrenders to what is, just allowing the disturbance to flow, instead of manipulating the outcome. •
Don’t we find ourselves in situations that are uncomfortable sometimes, and as much as we would like to change what’s happening, we know it could make the outcome messier..? •
I’m learning to surrender more and more every single day.
•
it’s been such a beautiful and enlightening process. I feel much lighter and happier when I just let things be. 💕

Sometimes it feels as though I’m walking through a fog in my everyday life; I don’t feel completely clear about the path I’m taking, or where I should turn.
•
When the stressors of the hustle and bustle of life overwhelm me, I often take time to sit alone and close my eyes and let the visions within me guide my conscious mind.
•
When I look within myself I instantly feel better, it’s as if my soul is reassuring me that I’m doing okay, and I am safe. 
I am reminded that I’ve never failed at anything, and everything has worked out in the very best way possible. 
When I close my eyes, I know that I’ve always been taken care of, and I always will be.
•
The transition I made several months back has taught me to release all my expectations to my soul, it knows the path. I’m learning to let go of what I think I’m in control of, and trust the unfolding of my life the way it’s intended. 💕

Life has taken some unexpected turns, and lately I’ve found myself just letting go of the reins; I’ve learned through this process that I’m only in control of a small percentage of who or what comes into my life. •
We are lead to believe that if we keep pushing through aggressively, this is how we achieve our goals. 
However, through my recent journey I’ve learned that the process is much more gentle and fluid. As long as we make a forward movement toward our goals, that’s all we need to succeed. •
Let go of expectations of how we feel the process should look like, let go of worrying about when and how things will fall into place. •
All we need to do is step forward and allow the unfolding to occur naturally, the way it’s meant to unfold, without manipulation or control. 💕

A friend told me the other day, “Syd, whatever you do don’t create any dark art pieces, stay light an joyful. Never show anyone that you’re hurting.” •
The problem is, artists can’t do that. Art is the expression of our souls, and no matter what we try to do, our emotions will come out one way or the other. 
I’m fortunate to be an artist, because I have the best outlet to release what’s inside. When we release our emotions they transcend and transmute. •
When I created this guy, I felt every single ounce of his pain. And just like magic, I’m feeling much better now that he’s outside of me, instead of living inside of me. 💕✌️

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a painting. I’m still doing them, just not quite as often these days.
This is a commission piece I finished today. Someone is going to get a pretty peacock painting for Christmas. 😊💕🤗 •
