Flower Face… and recent obsessions

ImageImage

January so far has been half-full of specific commission work (super exciting stuff that I’ll have to wait and share with you later!), and half-full of creating whatever I’d like for some shows coming up. This is the hardest part; coming up with content – ideas that feel good enough to soil a piece of lovely cream Stonehenge paper (so soft and creamy! I love it so). When I’m stuck for ideas I pore through old sketchbooks to remind myself of things I once thought were interesting. This is always kind of weird because it feels like they’re someone else’s drawings, like hearing your voice recorded and played back to you (do I really sounds like that? In my head my voice is much for confident and butch. Hmm). By mid-march I will be creating new work for two separate month-long Artwalk shows –

Saturday, March 9th                5000 20th Ave NW, Seattle

Thursday, March 14th
4210 SW Oregon St., Seattle
6-9pm

So, I’m trying out some new things, like acrylic on Stonehenge paper in conjunction with pencil and ink. It’s weird – I feel like these drawings are showing up and someone else made them. Not that that’s bad or good, just weird. Thinking of: flowers and lace and blood and weeds, black velvet and portraiture and napping.

Alright! Enough talk about art! Here’s what else is on my mind:

Current obsessions

  • our new bread machine (thanks, Grandma!!)
  • Die Antwoord
  • wearing lipstick and perfume and, a bra once in a while – generally acting like a girl
  • our space heater, and making makeshift kotatsus
  • ID documentaries, specifically Wicked Attractions and Missing

What’s on your mind?

  1. I really like that first painting! I too have become obsessed with flowers and bright colors in general…but that’s probably because of the crappy weather and spring/summer being ages away… 🙂
