To Be Desired or to Be Loved?

African Art Eyes
“Black Girl” Art by Salkis Re

Do you want to be loved or desired?

That was a question I asked myself one day when I realized the distinction between the two.

Love, as I see it, is this relaxed thing.

It is comfort, reliable, easy going place you get to when you’ve been with someone for a while.

Sex is more like “Peeing”

Sex is more like “Peeing” as fucking becomes an act of “released/relief” of tension, frustration, boredom and stress.

Sometimes, if he wants you really badly, he’ll eat your pussy without you asking for it first, hell even eat it till you cum if he’s really horny.

That’s what “love” sex becomes, a sort miss and hit

That’s what “love” sex becomes, a sort miss and hit with more misses than hits.
Then there’s desire. Smiling…

The one in which emotions like anxiety,

excitement,

thirst,

yearning,

 with Courting and unsteady emotions in play.

You feel a little pain when he has to leave,

your hips unhinge from their sockets to make more room for his dik, you want to swallow him, and he you..

That desire that interrupts your work as you start to tingle and secrete with just the thought of him inside you,

and he gets hard just watching you get dressed.

Art Process by Salkis Re

Men who “love” make promises they can’t keep

Men who “love” make promises they can’t keep because they are past the point of the intensity that initiated the vow in the first place.

Love is a road where you will meet disappointment, betrayal, boredom and regret.

Being Desired or desiring someone is a road where you are emotionally satisfied,

so satisfied that you don’t feel the sting of the betrayal,

and you recover quickly from disappointment,

you feel minimal boredom, and good experiences overshadow regrets…

So yes, you get those things you don’t want in both Love and Desire but “how” you feel them lends to entirely different experiences.

And there it is.. I had to choose one, it most definitely would be to be DESIRED.

What people have the time to speak about is what they have concern for, and this includes you. Take criticism as inverted care, a destructive side of passion and admiration, and more often than not, self reflection.

Nonetheless, you are charged with fluidity, to keep your heart moving and your soul occupied with whatever you are called to do.

Life is truly to short to give such heavy credence to the emotional whims of others. In fact, objective criticism usually followed by a solicited quest for help, and it should be sought after by those who are further along than you are.

This is the parameters necessary to CARE what one thinks about you or what you are doing.

Remember, you ARE what YOU say you are.

Written by Salkis Re

You want fish out the ghost and goblins hiding in your mind,
They make you self sabotage with innoquous words to rewind.

They make you feel things
that make you unsure,
and to second guess yourself.
and even when you know they’re lying,
you still let them make you a mess.

You better bee like the Owl, so you can see the angles from all sides.
Then you’ll have 360 degrees of knowledge to help you see what is right..

Listen, I know we as women prefer to be heard over actually solving problems. I know we want a shoulder to cry on rather than face the truth of things.

We are nurturers after all, so we are not designed to condemn but to comfort.

But the time we waste chasing the “feel good” stuff over the solution stuff leads us down a path of time wasted into Oblivion..

Time should be important to you..

Why?

Because you are being judged by it, that’s why.

The first thing anyone who talks to you wants know is how OLD you are. They want to know where to catergorize your worth. You calculate the birth of your children.

You look in the mirror and asses how well you are doing by comparing your cronalogical age and the age you appear to be.

You are in constant assessment of time.

Yet….

You let men waste yours.

You let them waste it like they can give it back to you when they’ve had enough of you.

Once time is gone, it’s gone into the forever good night.

To see things as they are saves time. And saving time means that you get to have more years of what you want.

You get to have more years of joy, accomplishments, and progressiveness.

Time…

What Will You Do?

🌼What makes life worth living? I had to ask myself this to gain some clarity and perspective. And I realized that having “challenges” was a key component for my growth.

🌼I realized that I didn’t want to “suffer”. I need accomplishments and joy in my journey, still,
I came to the conclusion that the journey of champions is not filled with a lot of people.

🌼And I’ve come know, as you will also, that most people feel powerless, and in their daily grind, they simply look to others who can soothe their anxiety within the reality they’ve come to accept.

🌼You can’t let people abuse your time, your body, or your spirit because there is no “lesson” to be had if the outcome has given you a repeated result.

So what will you do?
🌼I know what I’m here to do! I am here to activate your memory, to creatively disseminate wisdom to women, to encourage you to come out of your mental prison and fly.. It’s more than wearing vintage garments and crazy hair styles; those are expressions of your “look at me” button, and hardly has anything to do with freedom of the mind.

🌼There are plenty of intellectual fools out here. There’s a plethora of well dressed manic depressives. There are cashiers with bachelors degrees. Choices, genetics, habits, environment try to script out your life, BUT you have the last say in how your world plays out..

Stitching Up the Cut!

 

 

Sketch by Salkis Re

“People want trust, they want a guarantee. But they don’t keep their word to themselves. They do not honor personal commitment but quickly cite it as a character flaw in people they are expecting to produce for them. How can you trust anyone when you do have trust in yourself? You break vows you’ve made to treat your *own self better, yet you assert harsh criticism and disappointment in others who failed in keeping their pledge to treat you better. Better than what? How you treat yourself?¿

abstract portrait
Art by Salkis Re

To heal, you don’t “Ignore”, you “Expose” it. You have to acknowledge and face your own corruption and the graveyard of broken promises you’ve made to yourself. Don’t expect people to bandaid you. Stop expecting people to treat you better than you treat yourself. All a relationship amounts to is an outward extension of how you feel about you. The bandaid is not enough; you need clean out the wound and stitch it up so that it/you can heal.

He Called Me a Monkey!!

 

So I was doing my usual check in on my social media accounts and got a troll that called me a black “bitch” and an f’ing monkey. 

Not sure what got this man all ruffled up to say such a thing to me, but unfortunately it’s not new and most definitely not reserved to a particular ethnic group.

I have gotten comments like this from my own “kind”.

And it got me to thinking about the assumptions people place on the value of others by how one looks.

Do I really look like a monkey?

Of course not!

But why the anger and the association with a monkey?

I do think people have a right to feel the way they feel about me, I’m just not inclined to know what that feeling is unless I have to deal with you for business or pleasure.

Yeah, there is most definitely a problem with the notions of beauty in this society and colorism abounds , and to me, it’s really here to stay.

With my features unchanged, would I still be referenced with that of a monkey if I were lighter in skin tone? Not likely.

But to be darkskin, is somehow synonymous with being primitive, simple minded, ugly, and slavish.

That comment got me into thinking deeply about what I am presenting with my work and if my voice is being made clear enough for people to get my message.

It stoked the fire within me to continue my portrayal of “us” dark skin women 

as sensitive and sweet, and not the savage imaginings of the propaganda machine that people swear they are uninfluenced by.

Yup.

I got a job to do.

I got to put my two ‘sense’ in and neutralize some of the spells cast over us by members of this society.

I never wanted my art to be political, but slowly, it has become that it’s it’s own little way.

My poetry as reached the level of importance that my art has always had for me. The monkey jab touched me deeply, so much so that I had to write a poem to organize and unpack my thoughts.

To the person who called me a monkey this morning… Thank you..

 

“This Monkey” Written by Salkis Re(c) 2017

People assume the so called pretty amongst us

are the only ones entitled to hugs.

They also assume that esthetic deficits

means that I was born deserving of love.

They think that simple faces equates to simple minds, and that we somehow are easier to fool.

But they don’t know that their overconfidence

can be a tool used to get what we want too.

Real power comes from letting people think that they’re still in charge of their decisions.

We watch you rule with an iron fist,

and just sit back for a time and play the victim.

You will show your hand

and everything you feel

which happens to include

the weakness in your heart.

And you’ve trained this  “monkey”

to sit back and learn your patterns

and play vulnerable to get what I want.

So be self assured, I want you that way,

to reveal all the things that you front.

And I’m itching for the day when you’ve learned you made a colossal mistake

because didn’t know “This Monkey” could talk.

Artists Shaming ME, Another Artist: YIKES!

 

Facebook Group Flunkies

So this has been an interesting few days. I have been scolded in a few facebook art groups for the commentary that usually accompanies my artwork. I have never been an artist to just post a pic of my work with the measurements and a buy now link at the bottom of it. That is fuvking boring and it doesn’t stimulate emotions like words along with work do.

No Why NO WAY!

But I understand that this is my way of doing things, this is my “style” and I get it: I LOVE IT! But my problem is when the admins of these groups tell me how I ‘should’ present my work. I was told recently that I should just stick to art instead of writing a “book” length post because the opinion was that I didn’t write well enough to lend relevance to my work.

BIHHHHHHHHHH! lllmao. It is always these washed up, non visionary artists that want to lend critique on the way an artist should present their work. My art started because I wanted to illustrate a book I was writing, so I would have never picked up a brush if I didn’t have a need to ‘write” something. But I’m thankful this happened though, because it forced me to audit my time and where I was dispersing my energies, and booooooy was I wasting time “entertaining” people who really didn’t care for my words.

 

I think this is a sign that I’m getting better at orchestrating my words though, the fact that I’m making people’s skin crawl  with what means that they are tasting the bitter medicine of truth. I tell my fans that they have to develop a thick skin. Yes. You have to grow armor and not give a fuvk what people think: especially people who have nothing and who’s lives offer little to no fuvking semblance of where you aspire to be.

Naked in Stilettoes

If you want to show off your artwork while twirling a baton in stilettos and a see-through tu-tu , then DO IT! Seriously though, you got to know the “why” behind what you do or you will drift with every insinuation these forking losers can muster up while they take a break from their miserable lives. I am invested in my success as an artist,  and exposing all the dimensions of myself with the world. AND meeting the people who show tangible appreciation for what it is I do is the mission..

Listen, make you voice heard. Do your art with passion and curiosity to make yourself better with each canvas you paint on. Insecurity is the demon to slay. Insecurity affects you physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and all the other ALLY’s I left out.

DO YOU!!

Future Plans Or The Here and Now!

 

Women get caught up in ill-fated relationships because you believe in

“future plans” instead of “right now” actions.

We like dreaming. We love about reading romance and passion and we loving “hearing” nice things. But all that you have to base your decision on is right now, is in what you’ve experienced so far.

For some of you, that may equate to 10 years of shyte, and for others maybe a couple of months. Some of you have decided that “struggle love” gives some sort of extra respect, like ur a real woman cause you endured suffering imposed upon you. Sigh… That has more to do with low self worth than anything else. I know it very well.

You have been prepped to expect less and it sounds logical because you internally feel that its all you deserve. What are you dreams? What do you wish ur life to be? No! Don’t give me what you’ve been conditioned to say by other weak women! What do YOU need to live secure and comfortable?

And is what you have gotten, (im talk about looking at FACTS now not dreams) remotely close to the life you planned for yourself? Then start writing down your life as you want to be. Clear your mind, and design your day on paper and look at, study it. And take a step towards that reality.

Simon Beats That Drum!

You can see the many of changes my little Simon has gone through and Im not finished yet. Truly painting is a soul thing. I can see my mood in each stage and it fascinating to say the least. To create something of thin air and evokes emotions of love is an incredible feeling. I would not trade being an artist for anything else in the world! I usually start with a rough drawing and build the features as I go along.

I never know how the piece with look in the end and I prefer it that way, it makes me a spectator while I paint and that excites me. My work has been described as innocent yet sensual at the same time and I have to agree with that observation. This boy I am currently working on is the forth one in my entire collection of work.

Boys do not come to my mind often when it comes to creating a piece. I do prefer doing girls but when the vibration is strong  to paint a boy, I just obey and do it. I will post his story when he’s completed!

Yaay!

The Great Pretenders

I watch people,

I listen.

I ponder.

I wonder about ‘us’. Us women I mean.

And how we are afraid of things that give us no legitimate cause to fear while other things display their harm to us repeatedly yet we stay the course, weather the storm, hope for the best, bestow optimism towards. You do these things for everybody else but yourself. You can see the bright side of a slap in the face if his d&85k makes you cum.
But for you, well.. you doubt even what you know you are capable of!
Why do you do this?

Who taught you to hate yourself this much? When one person says your nothing, you think the world agrees with him. Truth is, I’m asking like I have not been you, and I have. What I am trying to do here is save you time, to help you learn the lesson fast and live slow. Time is important, the most important thing you got.
Time is not money, its more valuable than money because money cannot renew it; once its gone, its gone forever… The truth is bitter, the truth is not harsh:

THE TRUTH IS YOUR BEST AND ONLY FRIEND!! I need for you to want it, to crave it.
It is the only thing that will bring your right mind back you know. You got to dance with it in order to heal and transform..

Baking Cakes So He Can Break Bread!

Those women that tell you that you can do without, are themselves doing WITH and laugh as that ransack your house while they steal the spoils of war. This aggression makes us diseased, angry for no reason, it bloats our binge-eating bellies and hurries us to our graves.

We must let go.

We must let go of what we think is power and ignite what is actually power. Men take orders, they don’t give them. They need a purpose and a reason to strive or they’ll fall back in their beer stained easy chairs sweating out piss from their foreheads while they wonder all the “what if’s” of life. His purpose should be to please you and keep you safe. This is what he’s designed to do. If you play your part, your role will not wear him out, it will strengthen him and make him sharper still. Be a woman through and true woman.


I’m talking about being in expectation, NOT neediness

I’m designed to receive and when i’m not receiving, i’m not thriving. Getting your own is good but it doesn’t satisfy like being given does. There are parts of me that are off limits to everyone, those parts require my energy alone, and we all should have an off limit side to keep the mind mentally balanced. Being needy is an example of an unbalanced woman. I’m talking about being in expectation, NOT neediness; there is a difference in results and a difference in respect for each of those. Become a woman who expects the best from your man. You can make do if you’re by yourself. Wink!

Times of War

I am so into emotional stability these days. I guess its inspired my new media events and the constant bombardment of terrorism that people seem to “enjoy” sharing. I remember when I saw someone die in the movies, now I’m watching snuff films pretty much daily thanks to social media enthusiasts. What puzzles me about it all is that the emotional rants are getting so theatrical, yet the ‘solutions’ posed to actually affect change are met with: “We have to think things through” or ” We can’t do that right now” There is always a slow down all the way to a complete stop when we talk about things that we can actually do to change our condition that would not require anyone getting killed.

 

But then it becomes a matter of “practicality” when people are called to  task. But before the sit down, y’all were OK with insisting that people kill the pigs. The insane things seem to be easier to suggest that simple things that would require you to be inconvenienced for a little while. Are yall going to Wait until the UN brings foreign police to regulate urban streets? And I’m hearing that is the plan: they will bring in military from other countries for population control. Boycotting is still an effective method for change, but we have to be willing to give up comforts for the change we seek.

The Unpleasantness of being an Artist

Sooooo, I just decide that instead of venting on a piece of paper and then trashing it like I usually do, I thought it would be more exciting to burden you with my angst (snickering). I am a full time artist. I make that very clear throughout my communications in social media.
Yep! I am an artist, and here is my work. Then someone comes along and asks:”So, uh.. What do you do?” Now unless they were looking specifically for shots of my “snatch” I’m not sure how they bypassed all my progress photos, slideshows, videos of me painting to very eclectic music selections, my art gallery, and my collage of beautiful big-eyed baby girls. Yup. I’m an artist. No its not a hobby. Yes its cutesy, but its serious subject matter behind my work here!
God give me patience to deal with “suggestions” from casual admirers. “You should illustrate childrens books, you should make puzzles and shower curtains with your art, why don’t you do dolls, I see you don’t paint boys, you should paint boys, why not make the eyes more realistic so that children can see themselves in your work, why don’t you paint chubby girls, can you paint this on my clutch purse and shoes to match? (WUH,WUH,WUH,Charlie Brown’s teacher voice). And it always seems to come from people who haven’t purchased anything from me, but somehow they are a part of my “tribe” making the most demands on me.

Enough!
Then the critques that are moreso an out for getting away with insulting you. I have gotten better with this one though, much better. I simply delete, block and keep it moving. I am intuitive, I also study people. Yes, I’d call myself a witch but there are too many negative connotations to that title, plus I don’t know any spells, but I am definitely accute in my perception of people. But the down side of that is that it’s very easy to become indifferent and cynical about everything. Why? Well because you know when you are being lied too most of the time.

What I do as an artist is put my thoughts and experiences about love and life on canvas and I use children as the lens to interpret that because I see that humans are more honest and open than  they will ever be when they are young. They express themselves honestly until they are taught to filter what they think and feel for “appropriateness”.
I interact with a lot of adults who claim to be honest, but they just chose an area were they can assert themselves cause the rest of there lived are in shambles..

I am an artist and it not easy exposing my feelings on cavas to be judged, classed and rated. Its uncomfortable talking to people who I know aren’t interested in my work but still want to hold my ear hostage with hollow compliments.

Now, they’re not all bad of course, I’ve cried on the phone with collectors while discussing an art piece they purchased, I have talked about growing pains and connects with clients transitioning into new scary chapters of their lives.African american art

I have conjured up happy memories for people through my brush and they show me real appreciation for that. They say “There’s just something about your paintings, I don’t know what it is, but it calls me!” (Grinning again) yeah I know.. Its that connection that I do this for. Its so exciting when people “Get It”. I’m stoked when I have a chance to explain my concept and inspiration to true fans.

You Not Gonna Waste My Time!

The unpleasant side of being an artist is having to deal with all the flakes and foolery from folks who pretend that they are interested in buying. I used to entertain conversations with anyone who made a statement about my work, especially on social media. But these days I have very guarded with my time and the emotional conversation pertaining to my art.

I GET SOME STUPID ASS QUESTIONS!!

I had to deal with a very combative troll a few weeks ago asking me why I don’t paint boys in my art. I simply said “Because I do what I want to do!” But he kept igging me on, trying to figure out if I’m some closet feminist man hater. I assumed because I didn’t have any pictures up with men. (I’ve never paraded my relationships on social media and I never will.) But I got hot about this because as an artist, I don’t have to ‘answer’ to anyone about why I do what I do. I never heard anyone ask an artist who only paints animals why they don’t paint people or artists who paint nature scenes why they don’t paint skyscrapers!!

And its always these mother suckers that what to make ‘suggestions’ about what you should add to your body of work: but if you added it for their sake, they still wouldn’t or probably could afford to buy from you. They are energy drainers indeed and I immediately put the brakes on when I see them. Everyone who ‘likes’ your work is NOT your market. And I had to learn that the hard way.

WOMAN ASKS ME WHY IM CHARGING SO MUCH!!

OMG! that conversation took all the restraint I had left and there wasn’t much to begin with. I told this girl the price of an original art piece and she goes into a whole dialog about being a young mother, not a corporate CEO and she wanted the painting for her daughter. Then she continues by asking about my pricing structure. I told her that I offered her the option of buying a print which was more within range of what she could afford, I even offered a payment plan for the original! And she was still yapping about pricing.

I politely told her that I don’t based my price or alter it because someone has a low paying job, or unemployed, or plan to give to their 1 year old daughter… That has nothing to do with me. By the end of the conversation, what she wanted was to license the art piece and she thought by buying the original that it gave her the right to reproduce it!! WTF!!! LOL SHe came back a few minutes later with the “My boyfriend said I was wrong and owed you an apology”.. Uh Yeah Whatever.

Needless to say, I had to fall back.. I mean waaaaay back from all the noise. I don’t allow people to gets minutes of my time when it starts with me having to alter anything. I see people try to play the emotional game and I guess that works for some, but I am very clear on the ‘why’ of my art business. Im not conflicted at all about the value I bring to the world…

Don’t Have Sex Anymore!

I know, I know… some of y'all nymphs got to have sausages in your cookies on a daily basis. I'm not of that school at all. I do think less is more when it comes to intimacy simply because the more you do it, the more pressure it is to be creative and skillful  and "new". I don't think I ever bought into pressure of being the 'best' lover. I actually cringe at the thought of it! To me, it takes the love out of love-making and turns it into a rate card.

I remember meeting this guy once. I really liked him. He was sexy and very 'intellectual' but I could tell he was a sex hound. You know them guys that look at girls booties while they talking to you but they are so entranced that they didn't realized they almost stopped talking in order to look at them, lol. We finally got around to the subject of sex and he called himself a "Performance Lover". I said, "What's that?!" while frowning. He said that he aims to please women in bed. So I asked him being pleasured and he kind of brushed it off as unimportant.

That had me thinking. If you are seeking to make a good impression over sharing and expressing love through sex then its not about love at all, it's about satisfying your ego and positioning yourself to manipulate your partner. There really is no other reason to aspire to be the best at sex other than that. Of course no one wants to be awful in bed, but to me the sex act should be instinctive, not switching positions because you're timing your moves.

After we talked about sex, I was kind of disappointed because I knew he wasn't interested in me on an emotional level and I wasn't about to try break his 'best lover' record. Karma sutra be damned! Cause you do all that pole dancing acrobatics and the end result is the same: worrying if you're are just as hot to him as the first time you met...

How Facebook Turned Me Into a Clown

I've been on Facebook for some years now and it was so much fun at first. I'd connect with people from other countries, flirt with cute guys all while keeping in touch with ole friends.  I eventually I got serious about marketing my art and with the need for fresh content came my inspirational posts, love poems when I felt a little horny and needed an outlet and my own brand of chicken soup advice for my lady friends. But lately I don't know. It got to be an emotional drain trying to keep the trolls at bay while pretending not to notice that I was being flaked on. I realized that the public's accessability to me wasn't being valued on the level that I know I deserved.

It was just one rediculous thing after another: a woman inboxes me a pic of her tits while we are discussing shipping a painting, a guy gets mad when the conversation about which art piece he liked didn't turn into me giving him my personal number and date, not to mention the plethora of time wasted sending invoices that just sat in peoples inboxes. So something had to be done, but the only I could control was me. I didn't want to be that person cussing people out. I didn't want to get into a debate over every fucking thing I posted. I mean, I don't have a problem defending my position on anything I write because I don't talk about things I haven't experienced personally. But time is soooo much more previous to me now and there is a tremendous heaviness on e when I see its being wasted.

So I have no other choice but to back up and observe, regroup and rebrand myself. My art is the BOMB, and I feel that my true fans will follow me. The ones that masterbate to my photos and the chics that only comment on my page because they know men are lurking, they wont follow me....hopefully. But the ones that get me and appreciate my mind and my creativity and my artwork will ride because now that I don't have to clown for "likes" anymore, it's on and poppin.. cheers to new beginnings.

Editing and i paint to get things just right..

 

All of my art pieces seem to have a theme of sadness. I don’t know why I gravitate towards the sad things of my life but to me they hold the most emotion. They give me the reason to pick up a paint brush.

I don’t think I would have to inspiration to create without going to the dark places of my mind. In some weird way it fuels all this creative energy in me.  I think I’m even a good kisser because of heartbreak..lol I know.. I know… lol

The Story of this painting: The Kitty ask Annie to come play and Annie said sadly,”I can”t move from this spot!” Why can”t you move, said the kat. “Because mommy said not to move”. Kitty said, “Well where is your leash to keep u from moving?” Annie thought about for a moment.. Oh I know! It’s in my mind! “Eye Love Your Eyes” by Salkis Re
