Happy Pride 🌈 All people should be treated with equal respect, regardless of who they are or who they love. #loveislove
Pastel, water colour and sea salt painting made by Sebby and I. 🎨 A true artist in my humble opinion doesn’t need to copy someone’s sample or concept — word for word, line by line... A real creative won’t replicate your masterpiece out of respect for your efforts — they take the time to think outside of the box and envision their own original approach ! We are all unique, and no matter how much someone may say they are inspired by your work, they will never do things exactly the way you can. The beautiful thing is there is just one you !! So trust in your innate abilities and remember that copying can also be seen as the highest form of flattery. ☺️

🌻Happy Father’s Day🌻 to my μπαμπά (Dad) Κωνσταντίνος— best man I will ever know, our Daddy @arsenios 💙, my brother Alex, my father in-law, Godfathers @aatomassi/Anthony of my kids, and all the wonderful Dads I have met in The TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre. This year instead of expensive gifts, my children and I designed learning experiences that matched the interests of our special father figures from collaborative nature art in Pappou’s (grandpa) backyard to Ferrero Rocher pancakes 🥞 🤤!! It was nice to set something creative up that I could photograph and videotape as memories to cherish years to come... Hope you had a beautiful day with those you love most! 💋 💋 💋 How did you celebrate?
Wish fish 🐠 🐟! Throw them into water and make a wish — perfect for a walk with Daddy and as a creative learning experience which would allow them to paint together. Or you can always keep the rocks as paper weights if you don’t want to throw them into the pond, river or ocean!!! (For those still looking for Father’s Day ideas, I provided lots of inspiration like this @transformedvirtualstudio in our monthly membership which is like a private blog/YouTube account.)
