P A I N T E D S O U L ♥️♥️♥️ THIS is
E V E R Y T H I N G!!! .
A couple months ago I was invited to be part of a local artist showcase. I was asked to show off some of my hair coloring techniques on models I chose to use, and that it has expanded the opportunities for so many artists that have chosen to be part of it. I sadly declined this time, and those of you dearest to me know exactly why!
I was having a conversation with my daughter about being brave, and not ever letting anyone or anything stand in her way of her dreams regardless of what those dreams are. I told her about the show I was invited to and why I chose not to do it yet. She gave me a pass and told me everyone had to have time of reflection, and this was my time.
This has been the biggest year of growth for me in so many ways. After letting go of so much in my life that I was comfortable with for so long, I had to let go of that all to GROW. Good or bad, sometimes you just have to close your eyes and jump. Jump so hard after your dreams that they even scare you.
My daughter and I researched a couple local artists and wanted someone to hear our vision out and execute it into real life. We stumbled upon the best of the best local artist @lowkey_creative . He listened to what I envisioned, he was so patient with mine and my daughters thoughts it was comforting. I needed someone to paint how I felt when I do what I do behind the chair. When I stand behind that hair chair everyday, I give it my entire heart, I paint with my heart. My daughter felt as though this woman needed to be shown standing strong as a warrior with her heart in her hands. She is the #paintedsoul
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, this is better than I could have ever imagined.
I am unbelievably grateful and humbled that my time of recovery and reflection have been some of the most amazing hair creation days for me. Again, thank you @lowkey_creative And his beautiful girlfriend for bringing this to life. He is an artist I will speak of everyday as his painting hangs in my shop. And thank you all who continue to support my dreams of being an artist! ♥️
