WHAT’S YOUR LEGACY? . . When I was bedridden for 2 years, this would ruminate in my mind over and over again. THIS CANNOT BE MY LEGACY!! THIS CANNOT BE MY LEGACY!! . I could not die and leave my kids remembering me like this, a sac of skin laying on the couch. The thought was more unbearable than the pain I was feeling. It was bone crushing. I was always the alpha female who took charge and now I depended on everyone to help me with menial tasks like brushing my teeth or wiping my ass. It’s not sexy. (God bless my husband. I’m so in love with this man.) . One thing that has always been a constant in my life and helped me get through that dark time was how I measured (and continue to measure) my success. See, I don’t view MY achievements as my success but I view the success of the people I’ve help succeed as my ultimate achievement. And that is my LEGACY. . Knowing that I’ve built so many beautiful relationships and helped so many people succeed in life, makes me successful. It’s a win win!! It makes me so happy to see the people I helped moving forward and making moves. There’s room for everyone to make it!! I’m a Virgo people..I’m a nurturer. So I will be fiercely loyal and have your back. Mama hen in the house lol. . . So what do you want your legacy to be? . I want people to be the best version of themselves! Wether through art, meditation, yoga, working out, or gardening. Do what you love but do it with passion. Fall in love with life. . . . . . . . . . #nezlifestudios #nezlife #acrylicpainting #acrylicpouring #acrylicpour #acrylicpaint #abstractart #homedecor #diydecor #diycrafts #flipcup #flipcupart #dirtypour #dirtypourart #turquoise #turquoiseart #instaart #instaartist #pinterest #crafty #virginiabeach #virginiabeachart #virginiabeachartist #757art #757artist #veteranart #veteranartist

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR NOVICE SELF? _ _ When I first started pouring, I had no clue what I was doing (and I’m still learning)! But right now I will say I’m more comfortable than where I was a year ago. Last year I just knew I wanted to pour. There weren’t many people who were available for questions or who wanted to take time out of their day to explain to a novice the difference between acrylic paints and different pouring mediums. So thank you to @cinethia @sylvie14000 for not only inspiring me, but not ignoring me and teaching me the ropes. I just had sooo many questions!! And I could just watch their videos over and over again. Trying to master every detail. Only to try it and get garbage lol. So when people say this is easy I just smile and say yes it is. Because it really is! But good results aren’t! _ And there seems to be a natural progression among fluid artists. Or is it just me? It’s like we all dabble in all the pots until we find the one that we love. And although I really loved my pouring, I had to learn more! _ This art was sooo fascinating to me!! I’m not sure which one I found first, resin or alcohol ink, but I knew I had to try it. You don’t even want to see my attempts 🤣🤣 . My ink inspirations came from @jessicayoungart And @janelovesdesign . When I watch Jessica it’s like she talks to the ink when she creates. I swear lol. It’s whimsical. And Jane’s funky style just brought me back to my graffiti days and made me want to tag!! _ _ Uggh and then there was resin 🤩🤩!!! What’s this I thought? I must make this beach!!! @annupton.art was my day one. And let me tell you I have a LOT OF beaches you would not want to go in 🤣🤣🤣!! But at the time they were so beautiful to me. And I’m so thankful for being a perfectionist and just practicing my technique. I’ve learned so much throughout this year. Hopefully I can share what I know through these posts and save some of you from making the same mistakes that I made. _ _ Takeaway: If you want to master a technique, invest in it. Take a class. All of these artists offer classes for you! - What’s your best advice for new artists?

INSOMNIA . Another tenant that lives in my house. A few posts back I talked about how I refer to a lot of my challenges as “tenants” in my house, which makes me the landlord. This analogy doesn’t rid me of these buggers, but it sure was a paradigm shift for me. In viewing them as tenants, they no longer ran my my house but occupied space. A space I was in charge of. It gave me back control. A control I was desperately needing. . Tonight (or this morning for that matter) is another one of those sleepless nights. I had restless nightmares until I couldn’t sleep anymore. This happens often. They call it ptsd. I call it pima (pain in my anatomy). It will go on for a few days until my body just can’t take anymore and I just crash. I know I’m not alone. Lots of us can’t sleep. Sleep is a luxury. Naps is the other N word. So taboo. . Sleep hygiene? I’m a pro! Still have issues. Meds? Tried them all. It just is what it is and this is the new normal. I’m content and grateful that life is good and it could always be worse. . Do you have some tips for helping out? I’d love to hear them!! . . .

🎯POURING MEDIUM🎯 . . . . So many choices guys!! But how do you get those cells??? . . . There’s no big secret guys. Cells will form wether you’ve got a good medium recipe or not. Wether you add silicone or not. The key is to layer your paints right. And I’m still working on that. You see, all paints have what’s called a “specific gravity” or weight. And depending on how heavy or light the paint is, it’s going to want to sink below or push its way to the surface. For example, titanium white actually has titanium in it and is the heaviest of all. Scientists call this Fluid Dynamics. . . . So now onto medium recipes. Right now I’m in love with this @decoart pouring medium. But I’ve used all kinds of stuff. I’ve made many medium cocktails too 😊. Here are some of my fave in order: . . . 🥇 @decoart Pouring Medium . . 🥈neZZen Cocktail... learned from @sylvie14000 (my very first fluid art inspirations!!!)

🎯TUTORIAL TUESDAY🎯 . Flip Cup Edition . When you flip your cup, don’t just lift it, but try to HINGE IT next time. It avoids inorganic drippings on top. Just my preference.

So proud to announce this project with ViBe Creative District and Seaside Harbor Apartments !! I can’t wait for this community pour event!! Stay tuned for some awesome pics!! This is another full circle for me guys. You know how I love my full circles. . What I mean by that is when I get to give back to a community that is representative of me in some way. People who speak my language. . I live with invisible challenges called disabilities. I know I look fine. But I’m not (actually in a lot of pain writing this now). I have many chronic health issues that developed after cancer back in 2012. I was bed ridden and depressed for two years after that. Art saved my life (and Bob Ross). Literally. . I found pouring. A medium I was able to work with that was just MAGICAL. I just had to LET GO and give it to the canvas!! It has taught me so much. I had ALWAYS been such a perfectionist. My whole life (Virgo over here...) But in the end, no matter how perfectly you measure everything out, and layer your cup, you MUST TRUST THE PROCESS!! And KNOW that it will all be ok. . Give it to the canvas. Let it flow. And just watch the magic happen. It’s an incredible feeling!

🎯PRO TIP🎯 PREPPING AND LOADING YOUR CANVAS . You guys asked for it, so here’s what I do. . I first wipe my canvas down with a wet @bountypapertowels and @mrsmeyerscleanday soap. Those tend to hold up the best and I’ve found the soap to not rub my paint off. I then go over it with a plain wet paper towel and lastly a dry one. . I flip my canvas over and spray the back with water. If you don’t have a spray bottle, you can just pour a little on there. What happens is the canvas tightens up nice and tight so you don’t have to put any cardboard on the back and the weight of the resin won’t droop it down 🤩! Massage the water into the canvas for a few seconds, until it’s evenly distributed. Then flip your canvas back over. Now you’re ready for your loading coat. Mix your resin carefully, according to the manufacturers instructions. This is the most important part of working with resin, after safety. Once resin is properly mixed, pour onto canvas. Use a tool to disperse your resin over entire canvas. I like to use my gloved hands and massage it into the canvas. Once covered, use a heat gun or torch to get any bubbles out. I used a butane torch for this. . Next, I waited approximately 3-4 hours, while the resin was still tacky, and did another coat, called the flood coat. Resulting in an amazing finish!! . I hope this helped answer some questions or gave some tips!! If it did, swing by my website www.nezlifestudios.com or my fb nezlifestudios and leave a comment 💛💛💛 .

TANGO WHISKEY MIKE 😎 . That’s what I used to call “Time With Mom” when my kids were little lol! . Yesterday my son, Ethan, turned 18😱🤩!!! It’s sooo crazy to write this. But it was so amazing to do this pour with him guys!! Both Arika and Ethan love the arts but don’t normally pour with me so this was very special. I wanted to gift him a piece we made together for his room and do the same for his sister who turns TWENTY in two weeks!! (Yes, I’m old enough to have an 18 and a 20 year old 🤣🤣🤣...I’m very proud to be going on 43 this year!!! Totally loving my 40’s and believe everyone should look forward to aging)! . But however you find some time to spend with your kids is up to you. The important thing is that you do it. Tango Whiskey Mike was always fun for them when they were growing up and I wish we would have kept the tradition. They eventually grew out of it and just “hung out” with me lol. And that’s cool too.

PUSH THROUGH 🙌🏽 . Sometimes we have to see all the ugly in order to see the beauty in life. There’s such a fine line between depression and joy. I’m so grateful that this art has been the catalyst that brought me back. . It’s hard to understand if you’ve never been there. But if you are struggling, just know you are loved and that it takes time, awareness and a lot of self love. The healing process is nothing that can be rushed. It’s something I struggle with everyday along with millions of others. You are not alone. You are special and you have to know that. . Sending everyone some love today 💛💛💛 I will be donating this bad boy to the brewery since it was a community pour made by the patrons at New Realm! I can’t wait to have it finished!! . #nezlifestudios #nezlife #art_dailydose #art_viral #art_we_inspire #artbynights #artcollective #artdiscover #artfeatureland #artfinder #artfollow #artinprogress #artistoftheday #artjournal #artlovers #artoftheday #arts_promote #artshare #artshoutout #artstudio #artsupplies #artsviral #artsy #bestartiststudio #carveouttimeforart #creativeartisthelp #creativeartiststudio #dailyarts #dsart #instaart

PLEASE READ ✨ . Never compromise your integrity for anyone. No matter what the cost. . What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong. And in the long run, more people get hurt with wrong doings. . I was confronted with one of the hardest decisions I ever made in my life at 17 years in the Navy. I was told that if I said anything that I wouldn’t put on anchors and if I didn’t say anything they would make sure I didn’t put on anchors. So it was up to me to decide what was the right decision to make. And this was coming from my most trusted mentors. . You see, my best friend was being sexually harassed by our boss and we had exhausted our resources for help. Our chain of command basically told her to “take it a little bit longer” because she needed his help. . I knew this man would not stop at her and continue to do this to others (and I was right). So I lodged a full fledged investigation. . I was first brow beaten into not going forward with the investigation. It was like something out of a movie. Then I was remove from the command and relieved of all my duties as they told me they could no longer trust me. I received a promotable evaluation that cycle (and every other one after that). And this man still has a job. . I later found out that not one, but 3 others have lodged complaints against him and nothing has been done. It truly appalls me. I took it to IG and NOTHING!! . My point is, how do we expect people to speak out about sexual assault without repercussions? I spoke out, KNOWING this was a slight possibility but I want everyone to know what happens and to take heed and perhaps civil action vs. going through the naval channels. This man is a civilian, retired military and about to retire again. Sitting pretty and enjoying his job. . This needs to stop! . Share this story with as many people as you can. YOU MAY SAVE SOMEONES LIFE!!! . . #nezlifestudios #nezlife #art_dailydose #art_viral #art_we_inspire #artbynights #artcollective #artdiscover #artfeatureland #artfinder #artfollow #artinprogress #artistoftheday #artjournal #artlovers #artoftheday #arts_promote #artshare #artshoutout #artstudio #artsupplies #artsviral #artsy #bestartiststudio #metoo

BREATHE IN. ART OUT. . It’s been my tag line since I started arting. It’s what I say to myself every time I start to art. I take a deep breath in, and the art comes out. Is it similar for you friends? . Do you have some type of mantra you say before you art? . . #acrylicpainting #sharingiscaring #nezlifestudios #nezlife

I COOKED MY RESIN 😬 . Careful not to overheat your resin or you can cook it like I did here! I was actually able to pull the whole thing out like a huge scab. It was crazy. But after this dried, I did another layer of waves and saved this beautiful tray. . Has this ever happened to anyone? . . #nezlifestudios #nezlife #art_dailydose #art_viral #art_we_inspire #artcollective #artinprogress #artistoftheday #artsy #artstudio #dsart #myart #studioscenes #creativeartisthelp #artsviral #bestartiststudio #beach #beachlife #findyourbeach #oceanvibes #saltlife #beachlover #craftsfeed #dsmcraft

GO WITH THE FLOW 🌊 . Things are going to happen in your life. People are going to come and go. Everyone has a message for your journey. Take that message and make it meaningful. Make it meaningful and move forward. Keep the people in your lives that propel you to excel and be a better version of you. . Find people that push you everyday. That speak to that little voice in your head. It may sound a bit crazy but when I write these I somehow hope that one day my children will read these. As parents we are always the least heard. . If you are a parent, I’m right here with you. Today I’m going on a field trip with Ethan and I couldn’t be more excited to spend some time with him during his Senior year. . Do you struggle with anything as a parent. I feel like I have so much I want to teach them and don’t know how to get my point across. But I’m so grateful for two amazing healthy kids. . Thanks for reading friends. . . #nezlifestudios #nezlife #art_dailydose #art_viral #art_we_inspire #art-collective #artinprogress #artistoftheday #artsy #artstudio #dsart #myart #studioscenes #creativeartisthelp #artsviral #bestartiststudio #beach #beachlife #findyourbeach #oceanvibes #saltlife #beachlover #craftsfeed #dsmcraft
