“It’s interesting how people feel the need to rush through life as a way to prove maturity. People will rush into relationships, love, sex, marriage, education, careers, etc just to show that they are grown. As a person who is grown, I find myself understanding that there is maturity in saying ‘I’m not ready’. There is also maturity in saying ‘I want to wait’. And there is maturity in saying ‘let me take some time to prepare’. Being in tune with where I am and making decisions based on my own needs and not the pressure to prove that I’m grown, that I have it all figured out, that I’m perfect is important to me. I move at my own pace. I move at the speed that works for me. I move in a way that doesn’t cause me to be impatient with myself. I have learned to be still, or wait, or take as much time as I need.” - yourbigsisnissi •• #dirtypour #pour #pourpainting #painting #art #pourart #dirtypourart #artist #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractexpressionism #expressionism #artistsoninstagram #artwork #paint #paintings #artoninstagram #cells #paintcells #texture #colours #housepaint #acrylicpaint #colour #canvas

“You have to get yourself out of bad places. You need to resist the temptation to let everything slip and become apathetic and cynical towards yourself and your life. You need to accept that it takes time to change and it’s okay to fall over as long as you get back up. Every morning is a new start and things don’t have to be this way forever. You can heal and you can change.” - rosiesunsets

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It’s the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near. Let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” - Louise Edrich •• #dirtypour #pour #pourpainting #painting #art #pourart #dirtypourart #artist #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractexpressionism #expressionism #artistsoninstagram #artwork #paint #paintings #artoninstagram #cells #paintcells #texture #colours #housepaint #acrylicpaint #colour #canvas

“You can’t let people scare you. You can’t go your whole life trying to please everyone else. You can’t go through life worried what everyone else is going to think. Whether it’s your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You can’t let the judgement of others stop you from being you. Because if you do, you’re no longer you. You’re someone everyone else wants you to be.” - Steve Maraboli

“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater. But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it’s nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life. That is the sort of bravery I must have now.” - Veronica Roth ••

Canvas covered in glad wrap •• “Embrace your anger. Don’t be pretty little flowers decorating the hallways of life. Women have spent too long burying our anger deep beneath those roots in the hope that we could stop it from affecting our blooms, but all it’s resulted in is failure to thrive. If you are a woman living in this world and you’re not angry, you’re not paying enough attention. Not to your own life, not to the lives of other women and not to the lives of the women who’ll come after you. Be angry. Be rage full. Be loud. Be unrepentant. Be assertive. Be aggressive. Be the kind of she-beast that trains her fire-filled eyes in the male gaze and burns it down. Be everything that women are always told not to be, and commit to giving zero fucks about who may or may not have a problem with that. It’s okay to be angry. It is fucking okay.” - Clementine Ford •• #dirtypour #pour #pourpainting #painting #art #pourart #dirtypourart #artist #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractexpressionism #expressionism #artistsoninstagram #artwork #paint #paintings #artoninstagram #cells #paintcells #texture #colours #housepaint #acrylicpaint #colour #canvas

“Everyone wants a strong woman until she actually stands up, flexes her muscles, projects her voice. Suddenly, she is too much. She has forgotten her place. You love those women as ideas, as fantasies. Not as breathing loving humans threatening to be even better than you could ever be.” - Ari Eastman •• #dirtypour #pour #pourpainting #painting #art #pourart #dirtypourart #artist #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractexpressionism #expressionism #artistsoninstagram #artwork #paint #paintings #artoninstagram #cells #paintcells #texture #colours #housepaint #acrylicpaint #colour #canvas

“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot.

You’re still worthy of being loved when you don’t want to go on anymore. You are still worthy of being loved even when you don’t love yourself.

“Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive and go silent. Some people survive and create. Everyone deals with unimaginable pain in their own way, and everyone is entitled to that, without judgement. So the next time you look at someone’s life covetously, remember... you may not want to endure what they are enduring right now, at this moment, whilst they sit so quietly before you, looking like a calm ocean on a sunny day. Remember how vast the ocean’s boundaries are. Whilst somewhere the water is calm, in another place in the very same ocean, there is a colossal storm. - Nikita Gill” •• #dirtypour #pour #pourpainting #painting #art #pourart #dirtypourart #artist #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractexpressionism #expressionism #artistsoninstagram #artwork #paint #paintings #artoninstagram #cells #paintcells #texture #colours #housepaint #acrylicpaint #colour #canvas #green #yellow #blue #purple #orange
