I just spent a week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Since most of that time was spent on the beach, I thought it would be nice to share some ocean stock with you. Well, isn’t an ocean shot complete in itself? Well yes, but let’s see what people have accomplished with these already beautiful shots!

Now pick up that sea shell, and see if you can hear the waves!:

I like to pick my categories by what is going on in my life at the moment. As most of you know, I have an adorable little 3 month old, LillianAva, and I’ve been tossing back and forth the idea of offering photos of her as stock photography. I see cute things that I want to do, and then I feel funny giving permission to people I’ve never met, to save, store, and edit photos of my daughter on their computers. It’s different with photos of myself, because I can defend myself. True, there is always identity theft, but my motto in life is that you “Can’t live your life afraid of everything” Yes, we have a names for that… and it always ends in "phobia"
For those of you who post photos of your child, please remember not to scan in your JC Penny sittings and post them. Please post your own photos. And for those of you who will be using these stock images remember to follow the stock-provider’s rules. It’s comm

Each week we will explore a category of world of Stock Photography. Here on DeviantART stock can be used in photomanipulations, references, and lit previews. So let's take a moment to support our good stock!
This week's feature: Waterfalls
These weeks stock theme is something close to my heart. I love photos of waterfalls. So peaceful, so serene. Perfect for backgrounds in photo manipulations, or just a beautiful preview image for a lit piece! First lets take a peak at how some of DA’s waterfalls (and some from other websites) have been used in the past. Hopefully you can draw inspiration and continue to use waterfall stock in the future!
And you can’t get by without a photomanip of two Jedi’s dueling on a waterfall hahaha

Panic Attack

Mental Health Awareness - Paint For Peace
 is today. The theme is actually "Inner Peace", but I wanted to do something a little more personal.

If you've been reading my posts for a while you are probably aware that I have hypothyroidism. The thyroid regulates hormones, and mine doesn't work. One of the symptoms is depression/anxiety and all sorts of other fun things.

My paint today represents one of the symptoms of an anxiety attack. There are all sorts of panic/anxiety attacks, and different levels. When they get really bad, my eye sight goes dark and I start to lose my vision. A black haze creeps into the corners and my sight goes blurry and dark. I see stars, and my hearing fades. It sounds like my head is underwater and I cannot understand what people are saying to me. It feels like an elephant is on my chest, and my knees give out and I can hardly stand.

While all this is happening, I am aware of it, and aware of the fact that people around me are staring, trying to interact with me, and I am unresponsive and can barely breathe. It is a terrifying experience, especially in a crowd. (These type mostly happen to me in crowds)

You never know when it might happen. I do pretty good regulating mine as long as I have a task at hand, something to do, a responsibility to focus on. Thankfully I've never had one at work, and I have only had one or two at bodypaint events after I was done painting and waiting for the runway/judging.

So.... be kind to everyone. You never know what people are going through. It's called an invisible illness for a reason. People get really good at hiding it. Due to the stigma people haven't talked about it in the past. But I want everyone to know that I got your back, I feel your struggle, and I'm here for you.
