Ashley Longshore

WHIMSICAL WEDNESDAY : April 17, 2019

One of the highlights of my trip to NYC was seeing @ashleylongshoreart’s beautiful paintings @dvf. They were portraits of strong, iconic, badass women. I loved the show SO SO much! ⁣
🌺⁣
First off, being surrounded by all that COLOR made my heart sing, and then taking a moment to appreciate all these women with their many contributions was truly amazing. I left the show feeling lit up and filled with inspiration. Seeing all these women together was powerful and thinking about their contributions made me want to go and get all their biographies and get to work doing my part to make the world a little better in my own way. Thank you Ashley Longshore. 💕⁣

Painting my emotions

THOUGHT FILLED THURSDAY: April 18, 2019

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I want to challenge myself both technically and conceptually with my work and have been experimenting with painting my emotions. ⁣
🌴⁣
What feelings or words come to mind for you when you see it? 😊⁣

What does it need to be BRAVE?

FABULOSO FRIDAY : April 19, 2019

I’ve had such a wonderful day painting and being completely and utterly inspired listening to @jeshderox. He’s making me THINK differently and question how I’m showing up in my work and and my life. ⁣
🎨⁣
He said, “It is the job of the creatives, the wild ones, the brave ones to demonstrate to the best of their ability what this looks like.”⁣
🎨⁣
What does it mean to be ⁣
BRAVE?⁣
to take RISKS?⁣
to put ourselves in uncomfortable positions?⁣
to be okay making mistakes?⁣
to be wrong?⁣
to be made fun of?⁣
🎨⁣
There is such richness in all of these questions. I don’t yet have the answers to them but feel an awaking in my heart pulling me towards something I can’t yet explain.⁣
🌺⁣
As you go into the weekend I invite you to take a moment and let these questions seep into your soul. See what bubbles up for you. Even if you, like me don’t have the answers just yet I believe that simply asking the questions puts a call out to the truest part of ourselves. It’s the part that is daring and brave and knows that we are capable of doing things that nudge us towards a daring, joyful and utterly fulfilling life. ⁣
💞⁣
May you have the most lovely & luscious weekend!⁣
