Is there a specific smell that makes you nostalgic

Malt vinegar and sea salt :)
I get very nostalgic about family holidays from when I was a child! Sadly most of the places in Bournemouth that I went to as a child are gone, or changed drastically!
But one of my fondest memories was going to Poole Pottery, painting lil animal ornaments, then whilst we waited for them, we went over to the marina, got chips and watched the sea :)
Is there a specific smell that makes you nostalgic

How's your morning? ~ It's 7am here and It's really dark and rainy outside, but I'm enjoying my hot coffee while admiring the rain.

I woke up with a back ache already so I'm like, meh. My order from Haus was delayed and isn't coming today after all (not until Friday!) I get to work on some encaustic painting later though so I'm looking forward to that

What hobbies did you get into because of your parents or other family members ?

I can’t really think of any really, we’re pretty different in that respect. My dad played the guitar when he was young, but I taught myself how to play one. He also painted model aeroplanes when I was a toddler, and I used his enamel paints (initially, before I moved on to the much more user-friendly water based paints) when I started painting D&D figures. But that’s about the only connections I can think of.

What comes to mind when you hear the words: Self-Sacrifice?

"Help us to recognize your voice, help us not to be allured by the madness of the world, so that we may never fall away from you, O Lord Jesus Christ." - Albrecht Durer
*Adoration of the Trinity, 1509-1511 is a painting by Albrecht Durer.

What, in your opinion, is the greatest art form and why?

Oh man. That’s difficult really, as art is truly subjective, and I think that every art form has its own unique value, whether that be the wonder of immersing yourself in a book or film, the act of pouring yourself creatively through painting or singing, for example.
If I truly had to choose, it would be a toss up between visual art and music. They’re both the cornerstones of human communication, with legends and stories being passed down through the ages via the spoken word and song. Language - particularly cuneiform, dating back to Sumeria, the world’s first visual language (or at least one of - with it being the most widely spread language in the Middle East ); comprising of different lines and triangles. Hieroglyphs in particular are also incredible to look at and study. These art forms enabled us to survive and thrive throughout the changing world, and it has the ability to unite all of us, particularly music, as it’s so ingrained in our collective consciousness. It transcends barriers and cultures, has the ability to move the soul and inspire, and so much more. As a truly personal preference though, as I am very biased, I do love music and painting the most - both the act of creating and observing the works :)
(I hope this made sense as I’m pretty tired, so apologies for the rambling and sentence structure!) :)

If you were to live in an underground bunker for several years what would you take with you for comfort?

I'd take lots of art and craft supplies, for various hobbies. Like stuff for clothes making, painting, cross-stiching, customising items/furniture, clay making, drawing etc. You can pass loaddddssss of time with art, and if you don't have Internet access or electricity, you can still do it. So it's a great thing to stock up on.
Books /graphic novels too would be a good one.
If Internet or electricity was in a good flow, if there was a generator down there, then I'd bring game consoles, games and films etc to play or watch.
Lots of cosy blankets, pillowssss, cuddly things for comfort too!

A really difficult question for you ... What price would you put on your painting of the headless horseman?

jigsaw20216838’s Profile PhotoJigsaw
Oo, that is a toughie! Going by past experience and the average pricing of my peers’ work at uni and comparing it to those of similar styles, I’m inclined to go around with £2500? Especially given the time element spent on it, and I (internally) have priced my Ichabod Crane piece as the same :)
It sounds crazy expensive writing that, but it’s amazing just how much higher some of my classmates have priced their work! It’s just having the confidence and the belief in your own work to do so, I suppose! :)

What is your opinion on Just Stop Oil protesters throwing canned food at paintings? Do you think it's fair that they are jailed if the painting isn't damaged in any way?

No, I don't. If they had destroyed a priceless historic artifact, yeah, but if they didn't damage a thing then jail is a bit ott imo. People may not like what they are doing but the most they have done is caused a cleaning fee to get soup off the glass which, let's be real, isn't that big a deal.

Estáis felices ahora mismo?

Por una parte, feliz.
Mi técnica con el Glass Painting cada vez es mejor.
Por otra parte, triste.
Necesito un Ultra Fine Point para hacer los paneles de One Piece, Berserk y Tokyo Ghoul que quiero pintar.
No tengo ni idea de donde comprarlos en mi localidad, pero weno.

"Perfect for a drive or a stay at home candle light dinner. Perfect for writing, reading or painting something mate or shimmer. Perfect for just laying in bed while the sound of the rain soothe your red soul, It's music. It's almost therapeutic; and also sad because it's perfectly bad, for missing the people you've lost and replaying the memories that haunt you. Perfect for wars, wildflowers and hopes preserved and contained in jars, to be set free. Perfect for glee. Perfect for the seed that blooms, as last year the rest went up in fumes."

Has anyone decided to remain single? If so, how do you cope with the loneliness?

> Has anyone decided to remain single?
Many of us have for a myriad of reasons.
> If so, how do you cope with the loneliness?
In my case, there is nothing to cope with and I do not feel lonely. I keep myself occupied, work like a fiend, pursue my numerous interests and devote as much time to myself as possible: studying, reading, writing, playing music, painting, working out, researching, refining my investment strategies, assessing potential ventures, etc. A busy person has little time to feel bored or alone.

If you need to decompress, how do you typically choose to do so? Like, if you’re feeling burnt out, what is the first thing you immediately want to do? 😮‍💨😴

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I first want to sleep, to be honest! I don’t get much sleep due to the hours I do and my shifts are rather irregular, but just chilling in my room listening to music I find very calming. Having that space and alone time to just breathe is really therapeutic. Other than that though, I do try to take in as much nature as possible if I can, and also interacting with my dogs helps a tonne too! When I’m in the right frame, then painting and listening to a podcast is when I’m at my most happiest and at peace :)

/Are you kidding? That painting is pretty good, the only difference is painting is more messy than drawing digitally or on paper, so it won't look as smooth but it doesn't look bad at all (°∀°) I didn't know you could paint/

How was your little holiday?

It’s been truly lovely; we’ve really lucked out with the weather - it was forecast to rain the entire week, but we’ve only had some brief spells, and it’s been fairly warm!
It’s flown by so quickly, and my family and I all feel a bit low about the prospect of going home tomorrow. It’s been truly grounding for the soul, and once I get more time, I’m planning to do a mini painting series inspired by here :)

Is it a skill to paint/draw on an easel as compared to flat surface?

I reckon so! I personally don’t like painting on an easel as a preference, but I do use a drawing board which is basically an easel with a solid back, as I find that supports the artwork more and makes things more stable. It’s definitely a skill though, I found it interesting to adapt to, after always drawing/painting on a flat surface for years!

Vorrei renderti felice

Silken soft, eased of mind,
Letting slip the tears of time.
Born to grow, sinking slow,
Never knowing, onward going.
Lessons learned so very late.
Someone else shut life’s gate.
Emotions in a capsule,
No way of escape.
Graffiti of our time,
Written on the inside of my mind.
Hands dancing, the magic of life,
All absorbed into something else.
I spent a life sat on some shelf.
Words out of tune.
Looking up, I sing the song.
But of course it was sung
By another so long ago.
Did you whisper or was it mine?
We didn’t hear.
Yet the answers were always
So very near.
Do you know?
Please tell me where we go.

How is the painting progress of that horse painting?

Aha well, I have no idea actually! I haven’t looked at it for a long while as I had an issue with the glazing (so I was psyching myself out about it). I’d say it’s about 95% done, I am meaning to tweak it within the next month, so I can upload it on insta during ~spooky season~, as it may get seen more during that time (as I haven’t posted in years).
Other than that though, I think it’s going okay thanks! I’ll have to take a picture of it when I get home :)

Girlie I know you're not just gonna gloss over that weird ass convention you went to 🤣🤣🤣 I need details! I've been wanting to go to the festival in Roswell, but something always comes up 😆

Applepop’s Profile PhotoMᴏᴛʜᴇʀ ᴏғ Gʀᴇᴍʟɪɴs
Ooh I’d love to go the the Roswell
Convention! 👀🛸 The one I went to was really more focused on Bigfoot (or Skunk Ape, as they are known in Florida) but there is a definite crossover between people who are open to Bigfoot and people who are open to UFOs! It was so weird and quirky and the people watching was the best part lol It was a “town hall” style where people who had experiences gave their testimony and shared recordings or photos they had, and then took questions. There is also a TV show called Expedition Bigfoot and some of the hosts were at the convention too. They had vendors selling weird
Bigfoot and UFO themed stuff like tee shirts and artwork. Because who doesn’t want a Bigfoot painting in their living room lol

Which talent would you rather have, be an expert fisherman/woman and sell what you catch, or draw/paint anything you want perfectly with no mistakes but you can’t make/keep money from your drawings?

I mean, I’d automatically go with the art option, but it’d be a real bummer to not be able support myself financially through my art (therefore having to do other jobs as well as art) would be a bummer.
Having said that, I enjoy painting for the sake of painting and creating, so it’s still a pretty good option!

What are your plans for the near future?

Well luckily, there’s hopes of some issues being resolved at the coffee shop in regards to the days I work, and if it works out, it means I’ll be able to keep doing both of my jobs, which is a huge relief - as it’s been a major stress lately! It felt like I had to choose between them, which I didn’t want to do. So that’s the main plan, to keep on hustling for the next few months, to help achieve an important milestone.
Other than that:
💫 To finish off a painting I’m currently working on (finding the time and energy to do so has been really tricky!)
💫 Once the first painting is done, to finish off my painting/embroidery of the shoe piece I’d been working on, months ago!
💫 Once the milestone is out of the way, I’m hoping to start looking into getting a studio for my art. I’ve come across a few companies that do garden studios that look really cool, and it’s within the budget frame I expected it to be, so it’s a good target to work towards!

✨️ we're seven months into 2022. what have you accomplished so far this year? what are your goals for the remainder of the year?

poetalunam’s Profile Photoleigh;
Wow, it’s quite scary to realise that, it didn’t quite hit how far we’re into 2022 until seeing it written down! 😅
In terms of what I’ve achieved… it’s hard to say really. Everything that I’ve been doing, especially the last few months, is hustling as hard as I can, for a major deadline that if all goes well, means that it will be a colossal burden lifted for my family. So while that’s not exciting to do or read about even aha, everything that I want to do (art, etc) is kind of shelved until I can get that done, on my part.
In terms of more interesting things though!
✨ I’m very close to finishing a painting I’ve been working on for @nurbzee! As to the above, it’s been difficult carving out the time I want to give towards creating, but I want it to be to the best of my ability and because she deserves the absolute best! 💫✨
✨ I’ve now finally seen in person some of the work I did way back in last December that was graphic design, in terms of designing chinaware (teacups and saucers primarily), and such. I saw two of the designs on Friday and I’m so, so chuffed with how they came out! Actually selling them to people was the most amazing feeling. Unfortunately I can’t post them here due to my contract, but I’m glad that the hours spent on them paid off! 😄
My goals are to continue what I’m doing, finish my painting and hopefully some of my own personal work as well, and if everything goes okay, I can then start looking properly into garden studios to do my art!! 🎨
