Moving through a mood includes changing perspective... #vignette
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
Close up of some new #wip for my November show @ilfarorestaurantandbar. Details to come.
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...
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
As I remember it... #cranemountain
#loveislove ❤️💜💙💛💚 #pride
Send some snail mail love! These will be $20 at the @conartistnyc #postcard show next week! 🐌💌
Dancing light ...

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!
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
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
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 ... to be continued ...
Mood board. 📌
For everyone that's worried about the future of our children's hearts and minds, I encourage you to go out there and #volunteer. Be a mentor. Be a light! Help them, show them creativity, science, love and whatever you have to offer. There are many volunteer organizations out there! If you're in #nyc, I highly recommend @nycares. They have awesome projects with children. Personally, I take comfort in knowing that it took one vote to make this decision, meaning that all of the calls, protests, emails and care of people helped pull at the heart strings of those decision leaders. This tells me that we must keep going. #hearourvoice #betsydevos
Soul speak ...
Happy place 😊
This is how a human being can change: there’s a worm addicted to eating grape leaves. Suddenly he wakes up, call it grace, whatever, something wakes him, and he’s no longer a worm. He’s the entire vineyard, and the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks, a growing wisdom and joy that doesn’t need to devour. #rumi #nowallnoban #refugeesweclcome
Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you. #lrknost 💓
Moving through the bad news of today (on top of the sh*t from yesterday). Working really hard to keep my heart space open even though my heart is breaking for humanity and our planet. #nodapl
Working through some of the blues of today... #vignette
Getting closer with these ... not quite there yet, but ... thisclose ... (p.s. Moments after I took this, I realized I had resin in my hair... don't worry I think I got it out ...)
Moving in and out of worlds ...
Some botanical worlds in progress. I can't wait to reshoot all of these new pieces on my good camera! #wip
Exploring the layers of my inner landscape. More to come. #theworkisneverfinished
Moving through it. Literally. Sometimes I wish I wasn't such a feeler because in moments like this the pain is unbearable. My heart aches so badly and I'm afraid. It's difficult to navigate this uncertainty. But as a feeler I also know that joy will return in as long as I keep my light. So here's to letting our light shine brighter than the m-fing Griswold house. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 We can do this. The world needs your #love. #imstillwithher #election2016 #dontgiveup #electionresults #notmypresident #allthefeels
Once again, daydreaming about #Iceland.
Lots of little scenes from the past month of so ...
Remembering #Iceland and the way it made me feel small because of the all-encompassing landscape.
I'm excited to share that I have some prints of my paintings available! They are printed by @artifactuprising and look awesome! I'll also be having a studio sale soon! Email me if you're interested in seeing what's available! 💌 firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for a night of art, drinks and helping the homeless at the @lovecraftnyc bar next Wednesday from 8-11:30 pm. I'll be sharing some work with fellow @conartistnyc artists, including @andreacook @bree_chapin @wizardskull @narcossist @whitegrlart and others! $5 entry fee and 1 drink min, goes to support helping reduce homelessness in #NYC. 🌉❤️
This was one of those days when I was trying to recreate something else and needless to say, it did not work, but I'm happy with this and think it's going to be a nice background to a new land. Sometimes you just have to move forward to move through.
Aurora worlds ... Waiting for these water colors / inks to dry is certainly an exercise in patience. #wip
