Doing What I Do

I thought it would be fun to have some photos of me "Doing What I Do."
I think self portraits are very important..
especially when you are doing something you do. 
Being your true self.

I like to think this is what the canvas sees.

I have been busy lately. 
And I stay busy on purpose.
I work 3 jobs currently. 
I teach art, work at a flower shop, and run my shops and blog. 
Sometimes I get so stressed and tired, but I have to remind myself...
I chose this, and it's for the best.
All of this stress is temporary, 
and I'm in control of it. 
I'm in control.
I chose 3 jobs to get myself out of debt faster.
I chose 3 jobs to finish paying all the bills.
I chose this.
So, the only person I could be mad at is me...
and I trust myself to know, 
that hard work pays off.


  1. Always nice to come here...
    I like the point of view of the canvas... Makes me think about a lot of things!
    Take care ;)

  2. I just totally want your dress. Refashioned, thrifted, Vintage, handmade (wishing)?

  3. Love the fact that you're painting in a white dress!! Most of us would be afraid to do that!!

  4. Love seeing you in your element. I keep myself as busy as possible too, it keeps my creative mind sharp.


  5. Oooohh, I love that one of you holding the canvas out. Gorgeous!!

  7. Beautiful portraits! I feel inspired to make some of my own, doing what "I do". :)
    Three jobs sounds pretty rough, but I'm sure it'll pay off! :)
