Vintage H&R Single Shot 12 Gauge Shotgun. A throwback to my youth, a 40 year old H&R single shot 12 gauge, a few shells and a Buck knife. Wish I would have held on to mine! An inexpensive practical weapon for the prepper or for home defense.
Packaging day. Fought with the printer for an hour but now things are running smoothly. 👍🏻✨ #art #artist #myart #painting #drawing #spiritedaway #studioghibli #studiolife #artcollective #popsurrealism #audraauclair #instaart #instaartist #artwork #artprints
“For me, being creative is about stepping back a little bit. Especially nowadays, when we have so much input – the computer, TV, phones. My creativity usually comes from taking a minute to daydream and just put all that stuff away. To be quiet, with nothing coming in, letting myself sort of drift off. Sometimes, you have to set aside time for that. It’s like, ‘Yeah, okay, now I’m going to be quiet.’ When you have input, input, input, it’s hard to be creative. I have to purposefully stop looking at everything.” — Melissa Maya, ceramic artist, yoga teacher, and mom
