Golden

March 25, 2017

picture the warmth
the sun
pure joy
when gold boldly
meets your eye
a field of bliss
sun kissed by God
and sweet clouds
in painted skies
feel the love
precious daffodils
surround your heart
with light
a field of gold
sun kissed by God
and the power
of His might

♡Photograph of flowers from my mama. She recently told my sister and I, “when you feel stressed out, think of a field of daffodils.” The flowers she sent us, opened beautifully. She was also my inspiration for this poem.♡

Relentless

February 10, 2017

I am so happy with the font and color on this. I love it! I saw this word tatted on a UFC fighter during UFC 207 and I knew I wanted it! This is an inked badge to remind me that kicking ass and giving blood in the gym, in my personal life and at work is vital to my survival. I’ll *never* crumble due to hardship or hate because I am indeed “Relentless.” Red… a color that is symbolic of so many things.

The Cutest Guy

November 10, 2016

Today I got a chance to touch the cutest guy I’ve ever laid eyes on in the gym! We had a special visit from one of my animal totems and he was only about one inch long. Tiny lil guy almost got smashed by a dumbbell when I dropped it. Oh no!!! I scooped him up and took him around the gym to tell all the regulars hello. Looked like he had lost tail #1 and had regenerated tail #2. Dodging and laughing off “prooootein” remarks from the guys, I headed outdoors and gently placed him on a big tree. On my way back in, Don patted my shoulder and said “you’re a beautiful soul Felicia.”

Casualties of Love

September 27, 2016

Here is my latest digital composite. As always, this is a highly symbolic piece. There were over 60 layers in this one, most in just the barbed wire hair alone. I molded each strand individually. Other layers in the composite include: a distorted image of a woman with symbolically dark hair (barbed wire overlay); a masked layer for her red lips; a highly saturated image of a stiched wound; a stormy background; and a font layer with the composite title.

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but, I hope… into a better shape.”

There, but Not There

September 18, 2016

This mug was my favorite birthday gift because of how much I adore this duo. I loved this ill connection before it was cool. Thank you Carmen! It’s kind of symbolic to me… so I’m calling it my “there, but not there” mug. The mug is pitch black until it heats up. Even though it’s black, something is there.
