Dans une relation, ce sont ces petites attentions qui ne se font que lorsqu’on se retrouve seul qui renforcent l’amour. En public, les gens se soucient trop des regards des autres qu’ils finissent par avoir des comportements qui ne sont pas naturels. Ce qui n’est pas le cas lorsqu’elles se retrouvent seules, à l’abri des regards des autres.
Elles sont à l’aise et expriment mieux leurs sentiments. C’est ce qu’Amanda Oleander veut montrer à travers ses dessins.
Ces moments d’intimité qui renforcent l’amour
Ce sont dans les moments d’intimités que les gens expriment le plus leurs amours. Cela se traduit par les papouilles, câlin, grasse matinée devant la télévision, et toutes les petites attentions qui vont avec. Aucune gêne ne s’installe et tout est permis. Ce sont d’ailleurs ces moments forts qui renforcent l’amour.
Amanda Oleander est un artiste qui s’intéresse beaucoup sur le comportement humain et plus particulièrement de leur relation. D’après elle, les personnes expriment mieux leurs sentiments quand elles se retrouvent seul en tête à tête.
Des photos inspirées de son vécu
Etant un artiste, Amanda Oleander a décidé d’illustrer ces comportements à travers des dessins. Pour cela, elle s’est inspirée de sa vie et de ce qu’elle vit avec son amoureux mais aussi sa famille. A chaque fois que des moments forts se présentent, elle les notes directement pour les illustrer plus tard en dessin. Elle s’amuse ensuite à les partager sur Instagram.
Les photographies montrent que les personnes sont beaucoup plus attentionnées les unes envers les autres quand elles se retrouvent seules. Les personnes sont même plus à l’aise car elles ne sentent pas obligées de faire attention à qui ou à quoi que ce soit.
D’après ses déclarations à HuffPost, toutes les photos qu’elle a publiées reflètent sa vie. Mais certaines montrent également des vécus de sa famille et de ses proches.
Drawing 14/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Find someone that will love everything about you unconditionally and helps bring out the best in you. This is a drawing of my little sister Bianca and her partner. Bianca doesn’t shave and fully embraces herself which has attracted partners that love and accept her for her. About 5 years ago we did a “beauty transformation” and she went out in public fully groomed with makeup on and a tight dress and heels and we documented the whole experience in my blog. She explains why she feels better just being herself. Check my Instagram Story for the blog link! . . . Turn notifications on for this page for your daily dose of art ? . .

Drawing 12/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When I was growing up in Florida we had a mango tree in the front yard. We had so many mangos we would give them away and make mango popsicles from them. I really wish I could be sitting under that mango tree right now just eating a mango and soaking in the Florida sun. Whoever grew up with fruit trees around them is really lucky. It’s so nice to have fruits growing from your yard. If you did, what fruit tree did you grow up with? . . Cuando estaba creciendo en Florida teníamos un árbol de mango en el patio delantero. Teníamos tantos mangos que los regalaríamos y haríamos paletas de mango de ellos. Me gustaría poder estar sentado debajo de ese árbol de mango ahora solo comiendo un mango y sumergiéndome en el sol de Florida. . . ?Link in bio for prints and originals ?
Drawing 9/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. . . As I’ve mentioned before I’m enthralled by the way people behave behind closed doors. Intimate moments we never get to see. Those are moments that can’t really be documented because if they were it would alter the way the person behaved, so I draw them. . Como mencioné antes, estoy cautivado por la forma en que las personas se comportan a puerta cerrada. Momentos íntimos que nunca llegamos a ver. Esos son momentos que realmente no se pueden documentar, porque si lo fueran alteraría la forma en que la persona se comporta, así que los dibujo. . . . ?Link in bio for prints and originals ?

Drawing 98/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Is this a very common thing? Do you or somebody you know let your dog lick the plate when you are done? // . . I was watching @jengotch 's story last night and she posted a little clip of her dog licking her plate and it reminded me of when I was at my friend's house years ago and I saw her family let their dog lick their plate when they were done. It was the first time I have ever seen that because that never happened in our home growing up. I find it fascinating to see other people's behaviors in their homes, everyone has their own rules and routines and I think it's really beautiful how similar we all are in the grand scheme of things.. . . I am realizing that reading your interpretations is a great exercise to expand my/our minds to see an image in many different perspectives I couldn't of even thought of myself. So for everyone that joins in on sharing your interpretations on certain drawings, thanks! Always feel free to comment yours even if I don't ask for it. Happy Saturday! ✨??

So before you keep reading what this piece means to me leave me your thoughts and interpretations in the comments! P.s the time lapse is in the Instagram Story. . . . . . . . . . I am an open book. This is inspired by getting to know someone and being completely vulnerable and opening your life to them completely, letting them into every corner of yourself and what you have experienced until you've met them.
Drawing 90/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. I'm starting the tattoo removal process this Monday so I can't help but have tattoos and the process on my mind. The tattoo artist is inspired by @thekatvond the girl getting tattooed is inspired by my sister, that tattoo of the grim-ripper on the arm is a tattoo she recently got. That painting in the back is a piece I recently finished, this is the second drawing I snuck it into. –I was on the phone with my sister yesterday and we were talking about how people should wait until they are at least 25 to get a tattoo. What are your thoughts? Has anyone had a tattoo removed before? How was it? I'll be live-streaming the removal process on Monday on Periscope..get ready for some tears. ? / side note– I'm shipping all of your print orders and art orders next week. Except calendars, those will be shipped once I receive the batch! ?. . ?Link in bio for prints and originals ?
Drawing 88/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you really feel like your job is sucking the life out of you, but you feel stuck because it's how you make money so you try to fill that void with your favorite childhood treats. /// This is inspired by a phone call I had this morning. I spoke to someone very close to me that is not in a job she got her degree in and she really doesn't like it. To anyone that is going through that I want to just say, this is temporary. You aren't stuck. Your future depends on the actions you take today. You are in control of your life, don't ever forget that. –I've been there, right after graduation and completing a 3 month internship in LA I was working three jobs, (managing an Italian boutique, canvassing for @greenpeace and selling perfume at @macys on the weekend.) I always knew this was temporary.. every night I would send out my resume and apply apply apply. I kept working on my art. In one year I became a full time artist! You have to believe it will happen, envision yourself in your ideal job and it will manifest as long as you put the work in. A couple books that really helped with getting my mindset right were The Secret and The Seven Minute Solution. I hope they help you too. –(Shout out to @skdonutsla for gifting me with 6 delicious donuts one time when I was in between jobs that was such a highlight to my week. )– I would like to know how you overcame leaving a shitty job and how it has changed your life?! Your story can inspire the person that needs it. ?❤️– putting the time lapse of this drawing on my story now. . ?Link in bio for prints and originals ?
