Grateful for weekend day dates that allow me to channel my inner T-Rex! 🦖 Thanks to @orpheumnola and @lpomusic for so much fun yesterday! (And thanks to @evilpenguinfilms for snapping this photo!) 🎨 Grateful to release a new episode of the Badass Creatives podcast today! I’m excited that the first interview episode of 2018 is with the uber-talented @nikkicadestudio! We chatted about how she made the leap from special education teacher to full-time artist a year ago and how she got her work featured at Pottery Barn and Anthropologie. 🎧 Wanna listen? The @badasscreatives podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify... pretty much anywhere you can listen to podcasts. You can also click the link in my profile for show notes & to listen directly in your browser. ❤️ If you like the show, I’d be OH SO GRATEFUL if you would leave a rating & review on iTunes or wherever you listen, as it helps more people discover the show!

Yesterday I was trying on clothes at work and I tried on these white leggings that were too small and started saying all these horrible things about my body. One of the girls I was showing said “We are way too hard on ourselves. You look great.” & it stuck with me because we are sooo freakin hard on ourselves. Just because we may not all look like someone that has been working out for 5-10 years or whatever the circumstances are it doesn’t mean we look bad ! We are in our own journey . It is still our body and we still need to take care of it . Our bodies are a beautiful project. #embraceimperfection

#21daysinmyartworld prompt for today is CELEBRATE. Today I celebrate being kind to myself. For the little steps I've taken to loosen up and not take my art so seriously. To be in less of a hurry to accomplish the next thing and to enjoy the process on my way to the destination. To embrace the imperfections in my art and myself. Today I celebrate the fun that comes from exploration, creating art just for me, and releasing the pressure to create art that sells. #celebrate #loosenup #enjoytheprocess #imperfection #embraceimperfection #exploration #artexploration #celebrateme #celebratemyself #letgo #artchallenge #art #deniserichesart #magichappenshere #doitfortheprocess #dothework #myartjourney #myartworld #creativity #thecreativeprocess #itsthejourneynotthedestination #thejourneyisthedestination
Grateful for behind-the-scenes tours of the gorgeous @orpheumnola and grateful to see @lpomusic perform John Williams’ Jurassic Park score live to accompany my all-time favorite movie.

Grateful I remembered to bring my @jeffgoldblum action figure today, to grab this shot while we toured the orchestra pit!
Grateful that @evilpenguinfilms won us tickets to the LPO’s Symphonic Tribute to Prince on April 21, 2018! Grateful that @amandafrentz made it all happen!

At first I was a bit unsure about posting my lettering stuff, there are so many amazing lettering artists on instagram that it’s hard not to compare your work and think it’ll never be as good. But then I saw a few posts from some of the people I compare myself to, saying they feel the the same (which is hard to imagine because their stuff looks perfect to me!) and I decided to shelve the criticism and self doubt and just go for it. Tell that critical voice in your head to pipe down and do what brings you joy!

"Perfectly Imperfect"
are the spice of life
They are the tastes
that generate feeling
Emotion, attraction, connection
If we were all the same
We might as well
rip out our taste buds

Pink said it all.
No matter who you are, Men or Women, STAND UP.

I’m in tears watching Aly and so many others stand up for themselves. As my beautiful Jewish mother would say... “I’m verklempt” watching all of these girls and women come together, share their stories. It is not easy you guys. I don’t care who you are, it isn’t easy. I laugh to myself when people say “pink doesn’t take any shit.” In some ways that is true, but in many ways it took years for me to push back. It took years for me to find my voice. And every day I start over. Just this week, in therapy, I said this: my roar is beautiful. My roar is motherhood. My roar is love. My roar is justice. My roar is justified. My roar is MINE. My roar is FOREVER. My roar is for US. #keepgoing #lets walkthisfuckingtalk

💙Don't be afraid to walk alone and don't be afraid to enjoy it. Sometimes walking alone is the way to remove yourself from all the bullshit. Focus on you. Focus on your priorities. Your values. Spend your time and energy on what makes YOU happy. Type "YES" if you agree?! #keepinitreal #realtalk #personalgrowth #strong #tranqulity #peace #trustyourgut
