Artist RiaArtist Ria2018-05-23🔊SOUND UP & SWIPE🔊
FUN FACT: I love to make up songs and sing...I record them often so I don’t forget the lyrics. I always wanted to be a songwriter since I write poetry they are so easy to create. Well, this bluesy song was inspired by my hubby♥️
I love all music 🎵 Even mixing opera with R&B, jazz or blues ... why not?! I love Ella Fitzgerald’s voice and Billie Holiday’s effortless poise and their elegance while singing!!! (Disclaimer: I👏🏽AM 👏🏽NOT👏🏽 A PROFESSIONAL SINGER) I just love music and how it makes me feel ❤️❣️🎶🎵
.......singing is liberating! https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/e16cb7207469ca86e6509e40f85726c2/5B08ACEA/t51.2885-15/e15/32550030_811466765720980_3034070549794914304_n.jpg2018-05-23

See My last post about the people stealing my artwork and other artists artwork also. Spreading awareness helps more than letigation lawyers can’t find him. His name is DON HO. He’s a professional thief running a knockoff company in China ... They do many artists and businesses like this not making it ok but it’s something u.s. can’t do anything about because of their international copyright laws. They are in the business of knockoffs. Instagram and Facebook will take their pages down but they will put it back up under another name.

Artist RiaArtist Ria2018-05-20Growing up in Foster Care was terrible, cruel and disturbing! I suffered so much at the hands of different foster parents! I am not speaking for all foster children... only for the ones who don’t/didn’t have a voice... who suffered in order to not be placed in a home worse than the one before. Enduring terror to avoid misery. Going hungry to avoid beatings or inappropriate things from happening. Art, Poetry and music were so fulfilling... But now I have to exclaim that my love & trust in Jehovah God has been growing deeply and has to be firmly established... I mean it... come what may! He has given me talents to help me on this journey and I’m forever honored and grateful to him always for this chance at a real life now and to come! With his help I can provide a better life for my children along with my hubby.❤️

Artist RiaArtist Ria2018-05-19“My brush is my collar bone
-the bristles are my veins
-paint is my blood
-my palette is my heart shaped earring I keep on my left side beating close to my cheek
-drumming the strokes of my soul... I’ll continue to paint... pain... paint... pain..
-desperate to make sense of old love, life, laughter, beauty, poetry & harm
-with strength of my right arm I paint colors, schemes, light beams,nights, days, in a Daze, all four seasons, dramas, dreams... so my viewers believe them!
-so you believe in me! My vision... my paintings bleed... pain strokes are my paint strokes from a heart once broke at the seams!”
~poem and painting by me inspired by 2 beautiful women I follow... I combined elements of their faces... both whitney_austin And brionyajames ...
