de mon coeur (from my heart)

My creative expression is intuitive, as you know, so sometimes, I end up painting messages to younger versions of myself to help them understand that the mistakes they think they made, or the path they chose, was just fine because it all made me the person I am right now. A person I love more than anything or anyone. And I believe that more Black womxn and girls need these messages.

Testing, Testing

I haven't done this in a while. Blogging in general, but definitely blogging on my site. And that almost feels like treachery. Like I'm letting you down, dear reader. But here we are.

the 3 women

  Sometimes when I create something, I'm pulling from a download from Spirit. Such was the case with this painting. I saw the three women, I saw their hair and their clothes, and I saw what order they were in. When Spirit gives me these visions, some of the specifics are often missing. So I didn't know until I got in the fabric store which color fabric belonged to which woman. But I knew the general shape of their clothing and its "personality".  These women are 3 in a generational line. Now whether they're mothers and daughters, or 3 women...
