On Painting and Poetry

I've been asking myself questions about my art lately. Interviews tend to do this to me, leave my thoughts circling around some central idea that I cannot quite get to because it is so fortressed. I think of my own art as intimate poetry, as letters to a loved one, as metaphor in itself. I've become obsessed with the idea of what we keep, of submerged and secret selves, and of all the personal meaning that gathers in objects, places and words. I've barely begun to say what I want to... but I am happy with what's emerging. 

Love and Blessings,

The Good Daughter. Acrylic, Pen and Collage.

New Workspace

This is my new workspace. I'm sitting here listening to birds in the little orange tree just outside the window. I'm working on lots of little pieces, and having fun with the possibilities. I can't wait to show you some new photos when it's all complete.

Hopefully good things come out of this new space.

The cover of Blackberry: a magazine

Yesterday in the mail I received my beautiful, glossy copy of the premier issue of Blackberry: a magazine. (go to the magazine's website)
My art is featured on both front and back covers. yayy!! :) I am so thrilled about this. It's a lovely publication, and a great selection of literary material too. I keep randomly touching the cover. I can't help it.

My first blogoversary approaches, and I think this is a nice way to mark the occasion! I think we're in a pretty sweet place, and I am so thankful for that.
