This is the last of my 8 new pieces which I added to my cache of 6 ( of which one is a diptych). Tonight is installation. I'm so excited to see everything hung and very grateful to have my sister's help! Here are some lessons I've learned during these last couple of weeks:
1. Just keep painting
2. Sometimes its favorable to allow a painting to take the lead pulling me in a direction I hadn't intended.
3. Allow for surprises
4. Art making really is transformative
5. No matter how much you intend to capture the other in a portrait, you can't help but ultimately paint yourself
6. It takes courage to create
Here is more information regarding my show at Prarie Title Show.
I'll be sending a formal email invite later in the week.
I feel like good things are on the horizon, and although I'm uncertain what challenge is next for me, I'm excited for it!
