We need something to look forward to ❤

As you all know, the current pandemic has left many, including myself, to close down businesses. For me, this means no income and no unemployment. As stressful as this is, we all must stay positive and do our best to move forward. Although, I have no idea when the world will be back in working order, I would like to try something different.

I am going to be doing virtual raffles to win some parties and custom paintings ❤ Here is how it will work.

I would like to give people a chance to look forward to art after all of this. These prizes can be used any time and DO NOT expire. The parties can be held at my studio, at your home, or any establishment willing to have us come paint ❤ The parties can be used for birthdays, kids parties, sip and paints, adult parties, girl scouts, sports parties, ANYTHING! You tell me and I'll bring it to life. This raffle will not only be something fun to look forward to but it will also help provide for my family during this trying time. So much thanks is given in advance from the bottom of my heart. If you can not participate in my raffles, please share this post to spread the word.

Although I have taken this pandemic seriously from the start, I am usually not one to panic and I easily can go with the flow. As more reports come out, I am still at ease and confident that myself and my children will be fine.

At a time like this, we need to think about everyone who could potentially be effected by this. My grandmother and my mother in law are over 60 and I do not want to risk exposing them to anything.

I also do not want to risk exposing anyone to anything at my studio and them exposing their elderly loved ones. I do feel it is in everyone's best interest to pause all events at my studio.

If you have booked a party, I will be emailing you today or tomorrow. Please be thinking of a date to reschedule. As of right now, it is unclear how long we will need to be careful. Everyone who has paid a deposit, will have first pick of open dates for the future.

It saddens me to do this so very much, as it has saddened me to watch parents struggle to find child care and watch bar and restaurant employees express their stress of having such a drop in income. Please keep self employed businesses in your hearts because we are the ones who do not qualify for unemployment during this time.

When this is all over, we will not know if we over reacted but the alternative of not flattening the curve is too much of a risk to take. We have to put our best foot forward and think of everyone, not just ourselves.

As always, be kind to each other and love each other intensely. We will all be struggling for the next few months, mentally and/or financially. Please remember you are not alone through this hard time.

I'll be honest, I love ALL animals but I'm a dog person. With dogs, they are happy to see you and take all the cuddles they can get. With cats, they love on their time and their time only. I will admit, I love holding our cats like babies and forcing cuddles on them. The cuddles they clearly are trying to get away from.

We have two cats. This is Obi. He is an almost 8 year old siamese! He was the cutest, loudest little kitten. My kids love it when I hold his ears back and make him talk like an alien.

This is rare. Obi is 100% my husband's cat. He is sweet on my son too. He clearly favors men. (I do hold his ears back and make him talk like an alien, so...) But this guy can't get enough of me these past two days. I sat down to take a break from painting and I don't think I'll be getting back up. Gotta get it when I can ha!

Are you a cat or a dog person?

Can we agree that art comes in so many forms? How blessed are we do have such unique artist with different niches to make our world so beautiful?!

Craig is so creative and I love his work. He has such a cool technique.

Check his pieces out. He sells them!

This commissioned piece is built and hung!
This piece is constructed using 722 blocks that I individually cut and painted. All cut at different angles and length. Bordered with a beautiful white frame.

This piece was designed to go over a king size bed and as you can see is proportioned perfect for that area.

Yes, I will gladly install/hang for you.

02/19/2020

Do you ever have those nights where your mind keeps you awake? I laid down and snuggled my babies to sleep and now I'm here. Second guessing every choice I've made as a mother. Why do we do that to ourselves?

This is my favorite picture of my babies. They were 2 and 4. Now they are 7 and 9.

When they were the ages in this picture, a tick inside of me kept telling me to enjoy this because when they reach about 7/8, the love that we know will deteriorate. As twisted as that sounds it's all I know. That was my age during the beginning of the end of my childhood.

And here we are. My oldest is almost 10 and I'm continuously the best mom they could imagine. They tell me and show me all the time. And I'm not an addict, I'm patient, and I tell and show them every day how much I love them. I didn't become infected by whatever infected my mom. That has been my greatest fear ever since I started my journey of motherhood.

It might sound easy to some but the trauma my mother experienced as a child, she carried to adulthood, passing it down to her children. Addiction, self destruction, and poor choices usually circle back to mental health. Self medicating becomes so easy because we all want to escape pain or reality. Even if it's just for a few hours. This burden she has placed on me was out of my control and I am forced to live with it the rest of my life. I don't have a choice. Whether I repeat the cycle or end it, that is my choice.

Sometimes I feel like I don't have much to give my kids, I have cried too many times too count over it. I dont mean materialistics. My family is very limited, I don't have siblings with kids to give them cousins, no traditions to pass down, the pictures of me are so limited, I sometimes feel that my life before them is a mystery in their eyes.

But they have me. The best of me. I see it when my daughter wraps her baby dolls in blankets and calls them baby burritos. Or when my son holds my hand and squeezes it a couple times. I'm giving them my attention, memories and things to pass down. I wrote a sweet story about it, you can actually get it on amazon 🥰

If you have suffered like me and have a bad habit of doubting yourself ask yourself this, "am I giving them my full attention, memories, and good qualities to pass down?" If you answered yes, stop worrying. You're doing great.

Title:
Out Of The Woods

Artist Statement:
When we are born, we are born into circumstances. Some more dark than others, taking us on a journey to find our way out or get lost in the woods that are overgrown with self pity and destruction. If you keep going, keep perseverance and hope, then you'll find something beautiful. You'll find light and safety in your own compassion that will act as a guide for your future bloodline to follow. Something that will protect you from the demons lurking around the woods that you were born into. When you're scared in the dark, keep going. When your feet hurt, keep going. For if you don't, you'll find yourself haunting your own children in the woods you forced them to be born into.

Carly messaged me and said she would like a watercolor of her family showing how much they love cheering on their kids. They are involved in many sports and they absolutely love it! I really enjoyed bringing her vision to life.

When I create these, take everything you tell me about your family or friends to heart and focus on really making it sentimental and custom.

Send me your ideas! I'd love to give you something special to keep forever 💕

$35 for up to 4 subjects including shipping! $10 per additional subject added. Message me!

Sharing some watercolor orders from my heart to your newsfeed. I hope these make you smile xoxo

I'm such a sap. Even for the customers that I have never met, I get so emotional and sentimental after I finish a custom watercolor order. It is sometimes a curse but most definitely a blessing to feel things as deeply as I do. #pleaseshare #watercolors #customorders #artist #akronartist #littlevangoghartstudio

I used to judge addicts very fiercely, especially addicts who were parents. I can thank my mother for that.

As I've gotten older, I've realized that many addicts are self medicating to escape from something. A slippery slope. You must be able to face your hardships sober or you will forever run from them and they will forever haunt you.

Now I do not judge, instead I listen. I give compassion and a warm smile because I truly believe compassion is the only chance we have at saving humanity.

If you are an addict needing someone to talk to. Message me. I will listen and I sincerely care.

My studio is centered around children. My own children have inspired me so much, I appreciate the simplicity and acceptance of a child's mind. At every children's painting event I have hosted, at least one child will ask in these exact words, "you do you make it look so good?" I always reply, "I've been practicing my whole life." Hoping it encourages them to find what they love and keep at it.

Picasso said that all children are artists, the problem is remaining artists when they grow up. What I think he means is we lose confidence somewhere between child and adulthood. Maybe life got busy, maybe there was trauma and abandonment, maybe you didn't have the support you needed. Life happens and we lose sight of what truly makes us happy. I always am more nervous to host adult parties because I know life has gotten to them before I could.

I don't expect anyone to walk away from my parties, quit there day job and become an artist. I try to not only guide but inspire so I hope if anything (besides having a great time) I hope you all walk away feeling confident to do what truly makes you happy. Art should always be about the process, not the end product. I always see such individual, beautiful masterpieces at the end of these events because I get to witness the process. I hope you all saw it too.

Thank you for such a wonderful night 💕

I am sitting at home alone on a Saturday night working on custom orders. I happily sacrifice alot of "free" time to my business and my brand. Nothing great comes easy, I'm learning that. And patience. Alot of patience.

I'm sitting here feeling so blessed and so thankful. I know my hard work will pay off and I am looking forward to the day. I'm become so overwhelmed by all of you. Your kind words, your trust in me to invest in me, the inspiration. I've never felt more like the real me.... I can never express my gratitude enough. Every event I have had has introduced me to so many kind individuals with always put my anxiety to ease with their kindness.

Please, always be kind. Take the time to compliment a stranger, tell someone how talented they are, tell someone you believe in them. It's so easy to do and can create ripples in someones life. Everyone needs support, even loners like me.

Love always,
Erica
