First layer of this project’s final piece with acrylic paint. Planning to work into this with oil pastel and coloured pencil (specifically the eyes) and add writing with fineliner pen and possibly collage work with newspaper headlines etc. Updates to come☺️
“Guilty” : very dark colors, black, maroon, deep blue, rouge, grey, putrid yellow, lime green. Felt “between the shoulders. Collar bone. I’m imagining my spine in a C shape” (hence why I drew the “C” bc of @venturevulture).

About this “Feeling Heart ❤️ Project” : I’m converting a 16 emotions emoji chart for kids into a #sarahhartart chart: where each emotion is embodied in color, circular shapes, and fluid ink movements. I want to empower both kids and adults to feel the truth of their heart through art. #feelingheartproject

SAVE THE IMZAD
The imzad (alternately amzad) is a single-string bowed instrument used by the Tuareg people in Africa.
Its body is made out of a calabash or wood which is covered by animal skin. The strings are made from horse hair and are connected near the neck, and runs over a two-part bridge. The round bow is also equipped with horse hair.
a series of wild little people emerged last week, flourescent colors, and a smooth ride with a brush. or pastel oils - the lipstick like #sennelieroilpastels are addictive. it smears, it feels good. this guyess is coming from the beach. inspired by my memories of los angeles 💛 when we think of joyful moments from the past, even visualize it, we can feel it in the present. i feel the malibu sand running through my fingers now.
spread love, create magic and joyful memories 🙏✨💖

Self portrait showing my slow suicide.
My attempt at quitting smoking through art.
After being a smoker for 16 years I've decided to stub out the butt for good. Just smoked my last cancer stick. The schizophrenia doesn't help but I have had enough fucking around with my chakras and aura. As I type these words I ask the higher power to help me start to heal as is portrayed by the left hand seeking grace. I realize that if I am to seek liberation from rebirth ( yes, it exists) I have to cut all strings that bind may they even be formed of smoke.
Rahu, you bringer of all smoke, you shadow of a demon I realize now that it isn't impossible to overcome you since you do not have a form, rather you are feeble for this very fact.
Stay real, stay present, look at the waters but not the reflections. Reflections are a surface phenomenon so are mirrors, you are beyond, just like the waters that run deep and not the ever-changing surfaces.
Wish me light, I will need it to explore these dark caverns.
Never sit in silence and brush it all under the oak tree...work through each problem and plan out steps that you can take to get the help you need!
#mentalhealth and #mindfulness are key components to our #aaronarts book and also our team values. We wanted to create a paper pad you felt at one with, a pad that made you feel comfortable and confident with every page you turn, content with the journey that you are on. #art is a #process and one that is #personal and therefore our book should reflect that.
Our cover was left bare so our artist would be able to express themselves with any design they desired or simply leave it with the neat finish.
