Mermaids - 40"x40" framed
Size: 40x40 // 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.
Mermaids - As a kid I spent my summers in the pool. Hours and hours a day, mostly by myself. I made up adventure games in which I was a mermaid or a pirate, or a treasure hunter, and swam under and through obstacles while on my quests. I perfected my dive, worked on my handstands and flips, and baked in the sun when I was done. It seemed a pretty great way to spend the day. To this day, sitting by a friend's backyard pool is the quickest way to take me back to those feelings of freedom and ease. The feeling of what a summer should be.
