Hello and happy new 2019 year
I have medium-to-big plans for next year & if experience teaches me one thing, its that all the fucking detail heavy work is set to continue & acceptance is the key to all my problems
Most of November was getting things ready for my Christmas pop-up shop; I worked full days, making and making but even so I didn’t really get there, or not as much there as I would’ve liked to. Mostly because of Being a Woman.
Mirrored, compressed landscape & batik design. Acrylic, pastels, oil varnish, gold mica pigment on canvas.
Diptych, overall dimensions 1110x1820 mm (36x88 inches)
Its taken me a whole month to not get much further along with the diptych. God is sending me opportunities to practice acceptance.
Intense work through August, finishing the big diptych OR SO I THOUGHT
I DIG making grand landscapes.
"It is ‘the beautiful sorrow of things’, sunt lacrimae rerum; there are tears in everything, [he] said, not mournfully nor hopelessly but as a paradoxical statement about the beauty of the world”
Diptych 20x36" overall. Oil paint, mica pigment on gold metal leaf on gesso board
Should have left well enough alone

Ok so the only words I got there were "make a Katetop modified from the original pattern".
Swear to God I had this whole thing cracked in the first 15 minutes, then spent hours over the next two weeks getting it 'perfect", which of course it could never be because of that nitpicking. Swear to God I made the same mistakes, over & over. Metaphor for life, there.
