painting at last...


great news: i have been painting! constant moving/traveling over the past year and a half (plus the added joy of planning a wedding) have made it difficult to get into a consistent painting routine. to say the least: it has been pretty frustrating, akin to writers' block. lately, i have been learning how to put my existential crisis on pause for a couple hours here and there, relax, and just paint. i forgot how cathartic it is to submit to the process... and just create.

evidence of the process: paint drips and spatters on the drop cloth.





























sneak peek:
a close up section of a work in progress. i'm trying less toxic materials: gouache and oil pastel on thick grain watercolor paper. i'll show you the rest when i get closer to an end.
