Missing those "High Tides & Beach Vibes" Guess you'd say I'm "jelly" of those that get that weather all the time? #seewhatididthere I found this wooden piece at a thrift shop and of course I forgot to get a before pic. But believe me it was something from the 70s. Brought this gem back to life, to a beach life! . #beachvibes #hightides #jellyfish #jellyfishart #repurpose #reuse

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?

Yup, still posting green things. This is a painting I did from a picture I took while in Costa Rica a while back. I loved the way the sun shone through the leaves. Sioe to see the weapons I used to create this piece. #puravida #imakewhatiwant #livesimply

Sunday morning, paint is dripping 😏 If you follow my stories, you would see this big painting I've been working on and the area where I messed up. Ryan came home (for the last time from Richmond!!) so instead of fixing it last night we snuggled on the couch. So first thing this morning, I threw on my painting hoodie and threw a layer of white over the D and started to paint in some details. - Also, look at Sadie trying to tell Ryan to quit playing on his phone and play ball already. 😂 Double tap if you're excited to see the progress on this mural❤️

SHES GOT HER TOPCOAT ON! . Only needs one coat of @decoart topcoat for a spectacular shine and protection. This was sooo easy too! I literally did this in like 2 minutes right before I left to go to the movies yesterday. Poured some topcoat on top and smoothed it out with my gloved hand!! That’s it! By the time I came back it was dry 🙌🏽🙌🏽! . If you’re not hip, check it out in my amazon store!! I use it all the time!! No worrying about divots and fisheyes with this stuff!! . .

Do you have a spring

Can you believe spring is here in 4 days?!😱 ⁣ -⁣ Do you have a spring wedding? If you book with me in March, I'm offering Custom Lettered Welcome Signs for $50. ⁣ -⁣ Perks of a welcome sign: Welcomes your guest for you and they help your guests know they are in the right place or directs them where to go. Plus, they are a gorgeous first impression on your wedding day. - You can either rent from my small collection of chalkboards and mirrors or drop-off your sign. The only catch? You just have to be able to pick up/drop off in the Virginia Beach area. ⛱️ DM me / email me for details if you're interested!⁣ -⁣ Photo by @jamie.fleeman⁣ -⁣ #chalklettering #chalkboardart #chalkart #weddingwelcomesign #designerforhire #weddingvendor #weddingsigns #virginiabeachartist #weddingtrends #springwedding #springweddingdecor #chalkboardsign #rusticwedding #hrvaweddings #floralillustrations⁣

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!! . . .

I stayed up past midnight to make a pie last night. 🥧 It didn't turn out nearly as nice as this one I'm using from @unsplash. I needed a night off after what felt like a really long day but every time I start making pie dough, I'm reminded that pie is the hardest baked good for me. So, I'll be bringing it into work with the warning.... The crust maaaaay not be cooked all the way 🤷‍♀️
