Esprit - 36"x36" framed
Size: 36x36 // framed
I painted these new works during uncertain times. The heart of my process has always been to uncover and highlight beauty and peace amidst chaos and confusion. It feels even more appropriate now. While painting these new pieces I dreamed of summers past, the places I've been, the places I want to go. The things I am missing now have been replaced with other kinds of beauty, closer to home. I hope that these paintings remind you of something or somewhere that you love.
Esprit - There are times in your life when it feels harder than others to go against the grain. One of those times for me (and for most people I would imagine) was middle school. I remember shopping with my mother and desperately wanting very specific brands and styles of clothing so that I could fit in with my peers. But on one of those shopping trips I discovered a dress that was so different than anything I owned and I could not explain why I wanted it so badly. My mom tried to talk me out of it, but I promised to love and wear it often. She gave in. The dress was loose, midi length with a drop waist and buttoned all the way up the front to a little round collar and tank sleeves. It was covered in a Liberty of London style green and blue floral print. It made a statement for sure. The first day I wore it several people asked me why I was wearing my grandma's dress. But I really didn't care. I loved that dress and I wore it all the time. I think it was the first choice I ever made that went against what my friends were doing. I think that alone made it special.
