How to "LOVE YOURSELF"

LOVE YOURSELF

- a new series of paintings by Julia Badow


This is a series of videos introducing my new collection "LOVE YOURSELF"

It's about a journey I started at the beginning of 2018, and how it is reflected in my latest series of paintings.

I wanted to do a new abstract series, but then she wanted to come out and play. Haven’t done portraits in so long and couldn’t understand why I felt the urge to paint one now, when I had a series to create. "HER" is my first big scale painted portrait in forever. It's the catalyst that inspired the whole narrative of my "LOVE YOURSELF" series. It might be the only portrait I paint for a while, too.

I aspire to live my life like that.

„DANCE LIKE NOBODY IS WATCHING“. It’s a reminder to myself: don’t be too influenced by what other people might think of your actions and your life. Don’t make decisions based on other people’s believes.

For every girl, every woman that finally appreciates herself for what she has accomplished, how far she’s come. „KWEEN“ is for that moment when you’ve been crying for the last 3 days and don’t know what to do with your life. It’s a reminder that you are still just as much a queen as when you're are crushing it and on top of the world.

I don’t know about you, but I used to have such a hard time receiving anything. Help for projects, money for a job well done, praise…

To „RECEIVE“ and to accept abundance graciously is something we should all work towards. This piece is a way to remind you of that every day.

This is for everyone who might have been floundering there for a while, to get yourself dusted off and out of any lingering self-pity. If you don’t believe in your abilities and yourself, why should anybody else? This piece is here to tell you exactly that, every time you look at it. Celebrate yourself for who you are and how far you’ve come.

„TRUST YOURSELF“

When I was freaking out about putting my self-portrait on an entire series, I had this little voice in my had, saying: „TRUST YOURSELF“. You had this idea for a reason. Go with the flow. For this particular collection of paintings, it was the right thing to do and I am so glad I trusted myself enough to do it. It’s a reminder for whenever you start doubting yourself, „No. Your intuition is right“, trust yourself, there is a reason. Even if it feels a little uncomfortable.

„WAITING FOR A SENSE OF SERINITY“
1,440.00

A lot of people ask me when do I know that I am finished with a painting. And this is it. While painting, I’m waiting for „A SENSE OF SERENITY“ to set in. Whenever I paint, I am in a heightened state, I’m really focused, the energy is flowing. I’m in the flow and I’m just working without stopping. When I slow down with a painting, this whole state of excitement slowly leaves me and leaves me with a sense of serenity. And it’s the same with goals I’ve set myself. If I slow down enough for me to appreciate my wins and how far I’ve come, I have that much more energy to tackle the next one.

„ME TIME“

I tend to be a workaholic and have a reminder on my phone that says: „ME TIME“. It’s something that pops up randomly through the day and a signal for me to stop working, relax my shoulders, unclench my jaw and go do something I enjoy that’s not work related for at least an hour. This piece could work as your reminder, that whenever you look at it, it’s playtime. Looking at this piece, allowing yourself to calm down, shut off the computer, shut off your phone and go and enjoy yourself.

„FEARLESS“

I knew when I painted this one, that magic just happened. I put the brush to the canvas and it just flowed out of me. I loved every single stage of it. Using a brush in addition to my normal technique gave me the freedom to explore new marks and also took the fear of perfection away. Painting with a tool I’m not entirely used to, made me „FEARLESS“. I didn’t fear perfection anymore, I didn’t fear failure anymore. Whatever your doing, have this pieces in your corner to be a reminder to take the plunge, use your 20 seconds of courage and crush your anxiety. Be fearless.

„WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID“
900.00

That question came up again and again for me. So many things in life don’t get done because you talk yourself out of them or your think you have „rational“ reasons not to go through with them. I don’t want to live my life based on my fears. I want to live my life based on what makes me happy and fulfills me and makes the people around me happy. This piece serves as a reminder to you and to myself to make decisions based on what you want, not on what you fear.

*This piece was damaged during hanging an exhibition. It is not visible to the viewer at all, I was luckily able to repair it. I still decided to lower the price.

„NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED“

This phrase is so beautiful to me. Full of clarity, simplicity, tenacity.

It’s something we should tell ourselves every single day. „NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED“: a new religion and a way of life. If you decide to live with just one concept in your head it should be this: persistence, against all odds. Sometimes you just need that reminder that other people weathered way worse things than you are going through right now and they pulled through and they are glorious for it. You can survive this. This piece is a visual anchor for you that you can do it, that you are not alone.

Imagine this being a sort of hyper girlfriend that is going to celebrate you no matter what. You can look like the cat just dragged you in, haven’t showered in a week and she will still tell you „Girl, you’re so gorgeous, your hair looks amazing, YOU GLOW GIRL!“. This piece is this cheerleader that’s just smiling and appreciating you for who you are right now.

If you had all the money in the world, more than you could ever spend. What would you do? Some people know early on what they want, others might struggle with it. This piece is a reminder to always refer back to your ultimate goal, to not lose the big picture, make decisions based on where you want to be. Don’t be ashamed of what you want, go for what you want. Know what you want and then work towards it.

"I AM ENOUGH"

This is ultimately what self-love means to me: „I AM ENOUGH“. Do you know all these thoughts filling your head? „I don’t have enough money. My flat isn’t big enough. I don’t have enough clothes I like. I don’t socialize enough.“ It all boils down to „I am not enough.“. I'm working hard on breaking this pattern of negative thoughts and hope that wherever you are, you know that You. Are Enough.
