Things I should have done 20 years ago but it's better late than never. A study of large scale and medium scale marks and strokes and abstract mixes of the two exploring abstract styles of painting using recent reclaimed paint and tools on bits of old MDF wood like a proper skint artist. Some pretty little water colours for the old biddies and some photography of experiments with chemicals and water that don't mix. Rudimentary stuff to professional and more gifted artists tha
Submitted homework question to DBT_path. Hypothetical: Debbie asks what are my I needs in the hypothetical situation, if I should ask to quit my course of DBT therapy? I won't quit and I hope none of my fellow students do either. But I will list questions that I may find helpful to keep a student on the course and re-motivated. Questions I would pose to a struggling student should I ever be in Debbie's position. I will be concise and not explain the why's and therefore's. He
Took some guys to visit some friends today. Big four legged beautiful friends. We all had a magic day and our men's group sesh was very relaxed and happy. The horses were just happy to watch, listen and nod. Very polite! Thankyou horses for helping us relax and break more ice and open up more. Horses are therapists! #horses #therapyhorses #malesurvivors #mensurvivetoo #malebpd #ruffrootcreative
Some random images from recent moments. I am always updating my flickr, tumblr and instagram and sometimes my twitter as it's all connected. Easy peasy. I'm all over this shit! Why? Why f'kin' not! #ruffrootcreative #idiotthewise
Some detail shots from a colourful work in progress. It's gunna light up, glow up and rotate. It's going to be another weird one! Inspired by things nautical as in old discarded buoys on dry dock and peeling paint on old boats and various odd bits of flotsom and jetsom you find in and around working harbours. 🚣♂️🎨🚤 #buoys #pooleharbour #mudefordquay #harbourart #ruffrootcreative

It’s needful for the peace of a people, peace of the human heart, peace of earth, for grief to be there, not transcending on a bliss journey to avoid grief. Martin Prechtel. Short. Sweet. So very true. #martinprechtel #robertbly #BPD #Abuse #Malesurvivor #idiotthewise #ruffrootcreative
Heart Feeling Intensely Having a dominant mind, always thinking every moment, yet
feelings come intensely and my heart feels them all with no exception.
Pain, hurt, loss, suffering, all touch my heart entirely, it never rejects any of the feelings that come into it's
Incessant and intense, delving into depths of my heart, opening the flood gates, allowing the sluice escape.
Ripping, tearing, and wringing feelings and emotions, constantly terrorize this heart.
Don’t run away from grief, o soul,
Look for the remedy inside the pain,
because the rose came from the thorn
and the ruby came from a stone.
~ Rumi I hang on to these words for dear life. #bpd #eupd #mentalhealth #boscombe #rumi #ruffrootcreative #bpdlife #actuallybpd
