Art Therapy

Krishna Patel Artistry 0 Comments

So I got lots of work done recently. Like everything got a bit of love and I actually tried an attempt at a concept I’ve been wanting to try for a minute! It’s perfect. I was in a bit of a funk but some art therapy completely brought me to life. First off — you gotta follow Pratik Naik and Bella Kotak. They are amazing at their job and the creativity is so inspiring. They released a photoshop action (basically a PS filter) that people could try on their photos for free and I actually played around it. I have no interested in being a professional retoucher but it would definitely be nice to fix up our personal photos and balance …

Power of 4

The Power of 4

Krishna Patel Artistry, Watercolor 0 Comments

I love love love how these turned out. There are so many things I’d love to use this for Rebranded Olympics Logo even though I’m a few rings short. Symbols of our elements (fire, earth, air, water) and used in an awesome Sci-Fi movie. The logos of leading families, powers, planets, tribes and how they work for and against one another. Plus a forbidden romance! Captain Planet (the abstract version) b/c how bad ass would that be!! But for me, for now here is what they are, in order Perseverance, Achievement, Guidance, and Fluidity. Perseverance or rebirth because through the darkness, through the tough times, the lonely nights, the void mornings we come out to the other side anew. Achievement, which …


Professional Art Prints

Krishna Patel Artistry, Novice Adult, Serenade 0 Comments

  Alright so here is the surprise/come back I’ve been working on.  The one I thought I’d be months behind on after my accident. I had beat my self inflicted deadline of submitting my print order by Monday by 3 days and in doing so I got my prints today.  6 Days after I put in my order and let me tell you…I am BLOWN AWAY. I just didn’t ever think this time would come.  I didn’t think I’d feel comfortable really putting myself out there.  But over time (4 years on and off) I’ve slowly built up my skills and my will to follow my passions. AHHH!

Happy New Year! Ok ok, I know I’m a little late…actually I’m super late but it’s okay. It’s amazing how long it’s been since I’ve posted in here. What is even more amazing is that I’ve actually been writing almost every day yet b/c I try to get all my thoughts down on paper or text edit first I never seem to make it to posting it on my site. Seems like a kink in the process but in reality I think it’s just whatever I was writing for the past few months was actually for me and not for you. But no need to fret! I’m back and I have something for you. There are a lot of new …

Lunch by the Water

Krishna Patel Artistry, Short Story, Written Word 0 Comments

It’s National Novel Writing Month!  Granted I have no idea what to write about or believe I even have the skill to do something so amazing.  I have ideas for various scenes.  So here is the latest.  It’s a rough…I may or may not add to it and it probably took me a lot longer to write then it will take you to read. Also, I struggle w/ naming characters so you’ll simply find one letter initials.  Know it’s on purpose and because the stress of naming a character is just a bit too much to handle right now.  Enjoy! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lunch by the Water Trying to keep pace I almost stumbled a few times. I was thankful to be wearing …

A Psalm of Life

Krishna Patel Artistry, Written Word 0 Comments

Poetry is something I’ve always wanted to get into but it’s a bit intimidating.  I also don’t want to just randomly read poetry I would prefer pieces be introduced to me or referred to me by people in my circle. I find it’s better to internalize and appreciate in that manner. That being said I heard a stanza of this for the first time today and it traveled to the depths of my innerself.  It’s beautifully written and not difficult to understand haha. A Psalm of Life Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream!— For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And …


Adele – Hello

Krishna Patel Artistry, Music 0 Comments

So I was on my way to the Art Supply Warehouse this morning for a huge sale they are having and I caught a quick 15 min interview w/ Adele on the radio. It is no secret that I absolutely LOVE her and this song is incredible.  I can’t wait to hear her favorite from album “When We Were Young” (I believe that is the title) aka Track 4. The new song by Adele – Hello is just phenomenal.  She has truly delivered! Just listen to this… The image above is something she tweeted with this release about how she was always looking forward to the next thing, next stage, next year and never really truly enjoyed the present (or …


Deathly Cinnamon Rolls

Krishna Patel Artistry, Short Story 0 Comments

Okay this is a story I randomly made up one night and was sharing w/ the girls.  They thought it was funny and said I should write it up.  Some of the events are based on true events, the names have been changed to protect the identity of the characters, and most of it just made up for fun.  Hope it entertains you! *please note, I wrote it and didn’t reread it so please forgive terrible grammar, typos, and misspellings. kthanksbye Deathly Cinnamon Rolls Laying in bed Kay was reading her latest book, she was obsessed with YA series, or most book series actually but currently it was the YA genre. Already through book 1 she couldn’t move her eyes …


My first Audible!

Krishna Patel Artistry, Books 0 Comments

My first Audible! I listened to The Girl on the Train and OMG it was the oddest experience I’ve had as of late.  To listen to a book! I felt like Ralphie from the Christmas Story when he tuned into his favorite story on the radio.  I felt like a kid being read to bed.  I felt like a weird adult who was listening to her book instead of reading it. I felt like I was cheating. I found it to be a lesson in paying attention and in focusing.  Not drifting off in my own thoughts but staying alert, active, and engaged.  It was difficult.  Sometimes I’d catch myself trailing off in my own thoughts and missing part of the …
