It all started with the decision to get rid of this giant TV stand / armoire we've had since our first apartment (10 years ago!) We maneuvered it to the end of the driveway and donated it to the curb gods. Within minutes my Mister was helping a happy couple load it into their truck. Bon Voyage!
The same day at the magical thrift we found this old school chalkboard (for $5!!! ) It's been a dream to have one of these traditional teachers chalkboards... I LOVE IT, I love playing w/ chalk. The model to the right there is Cindy. I've used her as a figure to draw quite often.... On the other side of my room (the VERY messy side) is a set of old school lockers (also from the magical thrift.) I'll share some better shots of my studio space when it's been put back together. I really love my space.
The BIG Three-Oh: I'm turning 30 tomorrow! I can hardly believe it. I'm extremely proud of all the progress I've made the past 5 years from 25 - 30. There were some crazy times in there... Crazy, but necessary for overcoming and becoming. I'm especially grateful for the past year, for all the amazing people in my life, for all of the friends and soul sisters I've been blessed to meet in the flesh. . . for this journey, for the good and the bad and the indifferent, for the art and writing and discovering and naming and healing and growing and helping others do the same. This year from 29 - 30 has been one of the best years of my entire life. One I will never forget.
Bon Voyage, 20's! Hello 30's!
I could go on and on w/ so much more in my heart... Instead I will leave you with a new painting called Waiting for Words:
All my heart,
