Last But Not Least

With a job loss in our family, a new job, a (seemingly new) child, and new responsibilities, this painting is a marker for me.

Do you ever smell something, or hear a certain song, or eat something and then get a flood of memories? That's what my paintings do for me. As I go through the process of painting I am usually meditating on my life. When I see the paintings I was working on while I was pregnant with Pierson, I recall how weird my body felt and how I was filled with hope and fear. All-in-all this painting marks a change in my life. Whether it's good or bad, only time will tell. But hopefully in 30 years I can see it and breathe a sigh of relief and have a feeling of success.

PS. I promise to stop being so secretive soon.

2/21/09 - Hi there. Just wondering WHEN you're going to follow-up on the stop-being-so-secretive part. I've been checking back regularly to find out the deal with this post. But then I realized there's no way for you to know that unless I leave a comment. You probably think everyone knows by now. But I don't. Do tell :)

About Me

Brooklyn, NY
I am a artist living in Brooklyn and currently an artist-in-residence with Chashama at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. I have been working in encaustic for the past few years, but am usually trying out a couple of different art making media at once. Peter Everett once called my work kitch, but I don't think it bothers me.
