    Hello to all my wonderful Brothas and Sistas!

    My name is Jaishi and I am a professional artist and poet. About 3 months ago I decided to cut off all my relaxed hair and wear it as it was given to me. Kinky, Nappy and Beautiful!

    Since doing this I have felt more free, more natural, and more real. My only regret was not doing this a long time ago.

    Anyways, making the "napptural" journal has started to reflect in my art. I have received a lot of negative feed back from folks who say I should focus on painting flowers and portraits. I've been told that my napptural paintings will not be successful because nobody wants a painting of someone with nappy hair. WTF? WELL being the rebelious person I am, I've decided that is what I'm many going to focus on. Creating beautiful works of arts that depict everyday live. Being natural and real and spiritual. We have plenty of art showcasing roses, lilies, etc. (As I'm writing this I'm getting upset thinking about those negative comments, so forgive me if my sentences are incoherent, lol)

    I have placed my first spiritual and napptural painting on eBay. I'm writing because I would like you to take a look at my painting and tell me what you think. I'm not looking for a sympathy bid. I would just like the counter to reflect folks interest. Showing the nay sayers that folks are interested in black art. The name of the painting is "Rejoice". It was created with so much love and passion and I consider it an honor to be able to share it with you.

    Sorry for making this entry so long. I could write forever and a day. Anyways here's the link to rejoice. If you like you can email me [email protected] to let me know what you think if you don't want to do so on the post.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this!!!

    I'm wishing everyone here Peace and Blessings and Good Fortune as the new year approaches us!

    I LIKE YOUR ART. What I saw is nice, you have sold prints some of the one's here seem to be on canvass. Is this the case? Are they canvass? On one you have 22 copies that must be a print. Original works of art would sell well in Oakland California. Contact some stores and book shop combinations and see if they will carry ( originals on consignment ) I will come back... I only buy one of a kinds and canvass art. So do one of a kinds and raise your price. Keep flowing and move them. I would pay more for an original and one of a kind.

    Welcome to Destee.. It' nice you came in to advertise, but you need to stick around, let the family get to know you.
