“Swallowing The Last Embrace” 12×16 on wood panel (not for sale)
This one took me a while to finish. Partly because I can only paint right now around 3am between feedings. And partly because I’m exhausted. Physically, mentally and emotionally I just couldn’t find the desire to sit down and let my heart work to paint this moment.
It is getting harder and harder for me to paint. What use to be my cathartic release has turned into a painful activity. I’ve been seriously mulling over the idea of quitting or retiring, however you say giving up as an artist. When I look at this painting finished, I don’t know the answer.
Taking a long break from art and posting for a while. The shop will stay open a bit longer in the meantime…
Still painting like a mad woman over here. Still very, very pregnant…
I’m uncomfortably, hugely pregnant and ready to pop at any given moment. Trying to get as much sleep as I can and just not do much but it’s tough. Painting and listening to music is the only relaxing activity I can stand at the moment.
So here is my latest painting. In this recent style I’m not able to explain quite where it comes from…
I’ll put this up in the shop, which will re-open once things settle down. If you want to call dibs now, just email and I can get it shipped out.
I’m 14 days away from giving birth and my plan was to relax and just try to rest up. But sometimes I can’t overcome the urge to paint. This one definitely came from a place of anger.
Feeling used and discarded and needing to take some of that power back for myself.
It is 10×20 acrylic and ink on canvas. It will be in the shop when I’m back from maternity leave.
I customized my first Danger Dog pitbull by Tenacious Toys. Absolutely love this platform and look forward to painting up a few more in the future.
This guy is a hand painted resin one of one figure, featuring rainbow swirls on a midnight blue pittie. With brass unicorn horn and wings.
He is in my Etsy shop now!
