This year’s ONE MusicFest was a blast! The day was jam packed with great live performances, food and awesome weather. The festival included three stages this year, which catered to both the old and new school crowds, but choosing which performances to catch was a tough decision. The headliner, Lauryn Hill, along with The Roots, Janelle Monae and Wondaland, Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, A$AP Rocky, SZA, Raury plus more put on a stellar show.

HOBBY TURNED CAREER MOVES

Falling in love with a hobby isn’t hard to do, but turning that hobby into a career takes times, patience and persistence. In 2013, artist Mariella Angela decided to turn her hobby into a full time career when she picked up a brush and started oil painting. Earlier this year, the 20 year old exhibited her work in a series of 21 paintings and has received rave reviews for artistry.

I never intended to ever take painting seriously, and it didn’t happen over night. It started as a past-time to kill boredom, became a hobby and along the way I fell in love with it to where I decided to pursue it as a career. But [and I won’t deny this] social media did come to play where I felt this type of obligation to paint what people requested, and while I’m glad that happened, it made my vision foggy for a while – Mariella Angela on her series, TwentyOne

INNER INSTINCTS

By following her instincts, Mariella discovered more than she thought she would. This is inspiration to take that hobby to another level. Visit her website for more information on her artistic journey and additional paintings.
