#rockysavesearth ! I was randomly added into a groupchat on my main account. And though I have never watched paw patrol, I have joined the cult.
Also hi y’all from the groupchat, this is my lil art account
The lighting is awful, the photo is grainy, but the smile is real! I'm so excited to be cruising through this fun series. Working intentionally on a set of paintings that go together is not something I regularly do. Mainly because I get distracted and jump from idea to idea. But after seeing this sweet little series come together, I see the value in developing a theme and a vision.
Who's tested out the Keto lifestyle? I've decided to give it a try, along with my partner. We've both been watching a few documentaries and after toying with the idea for quite a few months, he decided to take the plunge...and I reluctantly followed. Admittedly I am a sugarholic and really didn't think I could do it.
I'm calling it a lifestyle because I'm not looking at it as a diet or way to lose weight. For me, it's about cutting out sugar and carbs to see what all the fuss is about with respect to increased energy levels and improved focus.
While the first three days were HELL...I swear I went into actual withdrawal without sugar...headaches, nausea and unable to keep anything down, severe brain fog and fatigue... all that fun stuff. I persevered and I have to say. Woah. I'm 10 days in and my sugar cravings have pretty much subsided. I'm still waiting to for the increased energy to kick in, along with a few other things, but I'm honestly shocked that my sugar cravings have subsided.
Anyone have any advice? I would love to hear about your favourite meals or deserts...that's one area I'm struggling with - I am not a fan of sugar substitutes so I'm pretty much just eating savoury things. What do you find gives you the most energy? How do you fight the 'Keto Flu"? Is this a long term solution or should Keto be a short-term 'reset'? Let me know!

Did you know that most of my materials come from the world around us? 🔄
My substrate is a beautiful wooden plank that reveals the natural beauty of the wood in relation to the textures of an ocean wave.
I add sand, crushed shells, sea glass, and even rocks to give the paintings a realistic and high texture look and feel. 🐚
2020 is the year that I’m going to stop holding myself back. •I’ve been learning how to spread and mount papered insects over the past few months and I’m so excited to finally be selling them🤩 •I’m working hard to try and get more of an inventory built up but I’ve been finishing some custom pieces. ☺️ •For custom pieces, please message me directly. I charge based on what insect is used, frame size and other materials needed. •Going forward, I’ll be requiring 50% of the payment for a custom piece on the day it is ordered. 🦋👩🏻🎨✨ If you have any questions, feel free to message me. 💌
Other than that, keep a look out for available items. :) •here’s one of my favorite butterflies, Charaxes Brutus. The colors and patterns on the underwings is just amazing to me. :’) #mountedbutterfly#butterflies 🦋 #entimology#art#abstractart#odditiesandcuriosities#oddities
Renewal- Commission Geode inspired Abstract Art, Resin on Wood. 🌱
My client had the most wonderful concept- Renewal, a concept I fell in love with because don’t we all renew ourselves daily? Learn from life lessons & try to spring forth to fresh new (better) beginnings? Let us never forget that our ability to renew ourselves in the face of challenges life throws our way is what makes each and everyone of us unique and special. 🌿
So this geode inspired abstract art has rust browns and oranges of fall, leading onto limes, yellows and greens of spring. It is earthy, almost like it’s a gem from Mother Earth. Every Orange & Green embellishment (esp glitter leaves) has been carefully placed to allude to leaves on gilded branches. 🍂🍃
Loaded with real quartz crystal points of various sizes, glass, stones and other accents, I wish for this piece to bring lots of positive energy to its forever home. Whether my client, who is based in Malaysia, wishes to hang this as wall art or use it as an accent piece on a table, this beauty is sure to be a conversation starter. Swipe to see some details! 🍂🍃
This piece is also special because my clients knew 15% of all my proceeds are going to the Australian Red Cross & they wanted to be a part of it. So honored that they chose me for a part of their donation effort🙏🧡
