@ordnung Petition, Nachrichten hinter einer CW nicht mehr auf 500 Zeichen zu beschränken - Octodon.social hat den Wert auf 5000 Zeichen gesetzt und es ist einfach sehr praktisch, fügt CWs einen weiteren Nutzen hinzu und vermeidet Endlos-Ketten.

Die heutige Zusammenstellung mochte ich wieder. Der silberne Stift ist zwar fast eingetrocknet, aber der Brushpen ist toll, wenn auch wider Erwarten nicht wasserfest und diese Aquarell-Wachsmalstift mag ich sowieso sehr. #AprilArtJourney

Finden Sie eine ruhige Innenstadt wichtig?
Ja, klar.

Wünschen Sie sich mehr Parks, Radwege, Spielplätze, Bäume in der Stadt?
Ja.

Finden Sie es erstrebenswert, dass 8jährige Kinder allein und sicher zum Bäcker vier Straßen weiter gehen können?
Ja.

Wären Sie bereit, Ihr Auto abzuschaffen oder grundsätzlich vor der Stadt zu parken, wenn der öffentliche Verkehr funktioniert?
Natürlich nicht. Wieso?

Discussion of possible resemblence of painting with nazi-symbolism, advice needed 

Oh damn, I just noticed that one could read the legs as half of a swastika... /o\
Now I'm trying to decide if it's too close so I should change it or if it's not? If possibly the rest of the painting like colors and the fact that the person sitting on the throne is a drag queen (which one can't see in this stage yet) is enough to "break" the symbol? Ahh... Damn it!

THIS IS A QUILT. Somebody designed this and sewed it up with hundreds or even thousands of pieces of fabric. Don't ever let anyone say textiles can't be art. Amazing. (Not my photo, quilt is by Montse Forcadell Blasco.)

I think I'll paint with color blocks over some of my older paintings. See what that does.

I realize that my paintings are always subject to my whims. If my style changes and a painting is not sold, I WILL change it, marker on it, paint it over.

And if you happen to have one older painting, you can bring it over for a makeover! #artistlife #creativeProcess

Being 40+ 

Turning 40 was great for me. It is far less scary than I thought. I'm working on my feelings about 45 and 50 and beyond.

Honestly, mostly it will be fucking nice to make it to as many years as I can!

My body thoughts are in a context of disability. Losing function/gaining pain is tough.

Aesthetically... the world doesn't care if I stop caring, so loving my looks and putting myself out there is a big middle finger to all that.

Women + aging 

If you're young & scared of getting old, one thing you can do is to learn to appreciate older women, to not discount them or use them as a joke, to intentionally change your view of their bodies & features so you see positives & not some scary future for yourself. It'll be far easier to accept yourself if you've had practice from afar. And it makes things better for the current oldies, eh? It's all the patriarchy, but it hurts much more coming from young women than from any man.

the best way i know to explain nonbinary gender to cis people is the binary food comparison:

every food is either a sandwich or a dumpling

pizza? sandwich

steak? dumpling

salad? sandwich

potato? dumpling

just because something *can* be sorted into a binary, doesn't mean that's the best or most accurate way to describe it

Would depend on the gallery, I guess. Hm.

Würde von der Galerie abhängen, schätze ich. Hmm.

Which is all part of the problem, right.

Was alles Teil des Problems ist, ne.

(en) I'm still torn if I want to have a gallery representing me and helping me sell my paintings, or if I consider them superfluous stirrup-holders of the bourgeoisie. Not that a gallery would want me... #artistproblems

(de) Ich bin immer noch unentschieden, ob ich eine Galerie möchte, die mich repräsentiert und mir hilft, Bilder zu verkaufen, oder ob ich sie für überflüssige Steigbügelhalter der Bourgeoisie halte. Nicht, dass eine Galerie mich haben wollte...
