ANOTHER progress shot of totoro because he is just SO CUTE. I’ve been learning so much through my gouache journey this year, and I can really feel myself growing and actually settling into the process as if I actually know what I’m doing ( I do not ) I’ve also been much more accepting of all of the stages of my art. For some reason I’ve always had this taboo of letting people see things while they were unfinished, I almost feel embarrassed sometimes if someone catches a glimpse of an unfinished sketch and I never really understood why I felt that way. To be able to look at my own half finished painting and say “hey I actually like that” is actually really emotional for me. I struggle with a lot with feelings of self doubt and guilt that I’m wasting my time, seeing growth is so energizing and feeling the confidence after putting so many hours of practice in just makes it that much easier to pick up the brush again. #selfworth#artist#art#inspiration#totoro#cute#anime#paint#painting#painter#gouache#gouacheillustration#gouachepainting#love#sketch#wip#workinprogress#draw#drawing#japan
The feeling associated with the sublime is a feeling of pleasure in the superiority of our reason over nature, but it also involves displeasure. the displeasure comes from the awareness of the inadequacy of our imagination.. that’s the moment in which our imagination can’t help us to measure the magnitudes of empirically given things.
That leads us to a mysterious pleasure. A pleasure which is possible only by means of a displeasure!

Stress relief painting I made over the weekend. I heard that red and purple tones help reduce stress🙃
When I was a little kid, I took over my mom’s towel closet and made it into my first studio. I remember getting my ass whipped for taking lamps in there and leaving them on and I often think of this as I’m locking up to leave. “Did I leave a lamp on?..” 🤔💡
A little throwback for this Thursday
No hay camino trazado
ni huella, ni sendero
simplemente el andar,
y mientras tanto,
sucumbes, vuelves atrás,
reanudas, te lastimas
para poder llegar. ¿ A dónde te diriges?
¿Es qué acaso lo sabes?
¿ A dónde está, el dónde?
Es preciso llegar.
No recuerdas siquiera
aquello que perdiste.
El ocaso ignorado,
la luz que no encendiste,
el abrazo no dado,
lo que nunca dijiste,
aquel que iba en la senda
y como tú, marchaba.
Es preciso llegar
y no hay atajo
ni camino trazado.
¿ A dónde?...¡Si hasta lo has olvidado!...
¿A dónde hay que llegar? - Eliana Soulages
