jaybendt Practice makes perfect? Working on finishing details, because I want to give nothing but the best. If it's not signed then it's not legit (fine artist mentality until death do us apart). 23h

jaybendt So one of my followers told me that apparently you can propagate new baby succulents from healthy cuts. The leaf that came off the succulent looked perfect to try this! So I saved it and will try. Here's to hoping it works #succulent #propagation #growingplants 1d

jaybendt Late night painting because I can't sleep. It feels weird to not work as tightly rendered as I have the last year or so. It's also oddly satisfying. Back to square one, to simple tools, to black paint and white paper and a brush or two instead of 7 or 8. I still itch for the details, but at 1am when it's just me, well... Who cares. I'll take black paint and white paper. 2d

jaybendt Late nights. Silhouette of my hand for a print. Also, I am obsessed with this dang plant. Should we name it? #art #hand #black #white #blackandwhite #paint #painting #silhouette #print #doodle #drawing #succulent 2d

jaybendt I forgot how much of a pain in the a** handstitching is. Now all I gotta do is the other 3 sides. Making a thing out of bits I had lying around. Old canvas from the last time I stretched one for a painting, twine from random projects, and a stick from a few branches that my husband cut down. Back to basic tools. 2d

jaybendt Hey everyone! I wanted to let you all know that I've started a newsletter. As someone who come January will be embarking on a pretty huge leap (self employment and freelancing!) I wanted go bring everyone in behind the scenes. They will be frequent but never spammy, with bits about life, shop updates (newsletter-only discounts and deals, pre-ordering bits before shop updates, and more), as well as inspiration straight from my desk. The link is now up on my profile. Go join :) it'll be worth it. 2d

jaybendt Little baby has been rehomed to a home with a lot more potting soil, food and sunshine. Though accidentally lost a leaf. :( will soon be joined by another plant from the yard. It seems to have been tossed out last winter but grew up anyways. #home #life #succulent #green #plant #baby 2d

  •   jaybendt @ktgflo thank you! Can you tell I know nothing about plants? Other than they look pretty, that is. I plan on rectifying that this coming year. 3d

jaybendt Braces in as of yesterday. I feel like a 13 year old going through all sorts of awkward stages. That and my teeth are sore. 18 to 24 months can't go by fast enough. #thisislife 3d
