A Vignette, acrylic and found objects 2009
Oh My! I have been absent for some time, haven't I? Well in my own defense, I've been busy. Ha! Actually, I've been thinking... about the peace corps, my job(s), and grad school (argentina?) or just moving to puerto rico to sell my art on the side of the road and live off of coconuts and romance (all very tempting options, mind you) since i don't know when san francisco will actually happen because I feel I want to settle there and stay there... which I am not very good at I have come to realize. I just can't settle and stay. It's not my nature, you see. Fortunately (or unfortunately) I believe it is my destiny to keep moving, to keep exploring, and to never settle down until I have exhausted all options, seen all there is to see. Is that depressing? Possibly. Is it realistic? Very.
So, anywho, in between my mania and strokes of genius, and apart from writing a new mini series about the irony of being an artist, and being completely broke and alone, I have finished a project (to be displayed at Channel 33 Project Gallery this Friday Dec. 4th from 7-whenever in Columbus, OH!) Hooray!
Here is a sneak peak... very different from what I have done in the past, yes, but I am always on the go, moving ahead even if I am physically stuck in one place for the time being. So don't worry, folks, this Midwestern Beauty will conquer the world soon enough! Oh, you're not worried? You don't even care? WELL SCREW YOU! Ha, I just kid... I kidding... seriously, just take a look. And COME TO MY SHOW! (or pretend like you will...)
