Gradually, with each stroke and line I return to myself, which isn’t really a “self” at all. Rather an ocean of awareness. #wip
Adding a little more detail to this land. #vignette #wip
Some goodies for tonight's @troypopup art show. I'll be there from 5:30-9 pm. Hope to see you there! ❤️#enjoytroy

Near midnight minis and something new in progress for my November art show @ilfarorestaurantandbar! #artworkbykimtateo
Something new in progress... can't decide if I want to keep this abstract or add details. Also I rearranged my studio and am loving it! #wip #artworkbykimtateo
Paint anywhere, paint everywhere.
Learning to work with the shadow side of things...
Reflecting on how to untangle the fear. This in response to the many things that keep surfacing.
A visual reflection on the reminder that when I listen to the rhythms of the Earth I am brought back to my own Heart. And in that space I can remember to hear art... This was after a morning of feeling a bit disconnected from my practice. 🌌🌊💙🌊🌌
Late night thoughts and cicada songs...
Dreaming of better places... where healthcare is seen as a right, where we take better care of our planet and each other, where all are welcome. Where we understand that we are all connected and when another person suffers, we suffer too.
To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive. #robertlouisstevenson
7 minutes of my brain -- for today's #morningpages I painted instead.
It's always bittersweet when my work finds a new home, but I am very grateful that these two lovely lands have new homes! I have tons of work available, so if you're interested in anything send me a message. Or I'd love to do a commission of a land just for you! 💌
The #detail of a #moment. My recent paintings have been really loose because I have been exploring ways to move from my mind into my body -- out of thoughts and into feelings. Away from to do lists and *into* everything -- feeling the heat; the fear; the rawness of missing; the air of possibility. #fromthoughttofeeling
Continually letting go and loosening the grip. Sometimes this process is messy.
As I remember it... #cranemountain
#loveislove ❤️💜💙💛💚 #pride
Remembering Washington and playing around with new mediums with one of my oldest friends @dandeena_schadle. #pastel #quicksketch ❤️🎨

My brain after two days of amazing meetings ... #sketchbook
Another sneak of this giant mess of a piece that has been taking over my kitchen. Truthfully I'm a bit stuck, but I'm hoping it will come together!
Today I ate pistachio pudding ...
Temporary street art (while I photograph them)! I'm so happy these pieces have new homes. Yay!
For Ashley, with love. 💓 @ashleylinguine (sorry it took so long, yay for art trades!) p.s. don't mind our kitchen light/this iPhone snap. The piece is much prettier in person!
Just some late night flame throwing 🔥 ... #resin #process #wip
Another #vignette of this large piece that's taking over our kitchen, but it's starting to come together! Can't wait to share the whole thing! #process #wip #detail ... btw join me next Friday @lprnyc for my first @artbattle! #artbattle
#detail of a new #resin piece. These pieces are always an exercise in impermanence and patience because the ink and alcohol alchemy move ever-so-slowly and dry very differently then when applied. I've learned to let each layer fully dry before adding the next. Only moments of this first layer will appear in the final. #wip
From the #sketchbook ... these are some shots of scenes for the #100dayproject. Follow along @lands_layered
Another #vignette of a large piece I'm working on... it's looking a bit too crazy to share the full thing, but soon. #detail #wip
Rainy day activities ♥ #wip #detail of a much larger piece
Moving through the feelings of a triggering holiday. I'm grateful for all of the amazing mothers out there, but holding a space for those who have lost them too soon. I was listening to @ingridmichaelson's latest album and one of her songs broke my heart in a way that can only let in the light. Thank you for that. 🌷➰ #vignette and #wip of a much larger piece in progress
Rooftop party #details. From a character, to a friend... meeting new neighbors while painting on a roof -- @rodeoactive @anashabc we all have to have a rooftop party soon!
Getting back into it...
The past month or so ... moving my way through it all.
New studio vibes... 🎨⚡️
Current mood ... #wip
Forgetting is remembering pt. 2 .... #wip
