i’ve started my journey into exploring larger paintings! sometimes it feels like there’s just so much space to fill. but i’m learning in my daily life to leave room for open spaces and what i call nothingness. those times when you’re not just in between tasks or to-dos, but you really feel that there’s nothing planned and you don’t even have to fill your time with something productive. i’m remembering to just sit and sketch or even just sit and be.
this new painting came out of those feelings. i found these vintage shopping lists in my paper drawer and filled them with words expressing all of my fears and dreams and every moment that makes me feel awkward and out of place. then i adhered these words right to this owls belly and smack as the boldest moon in the sky to remind me to TURN YOUR FEARS INTO GRATITUDE.
