new work: WINTER SOLSTICE IN THE DESERT
a painting as a holiday gift, maybe for yourself?
Yesterday I started the morning talking about doulas and ended the night contemplating liminal spaces and found myself in rabbit’s pose, wishing I could be in a womb — isn’t that strange? — and wondering how to mimic that feeling as a grown woman, maybe if I could tunnel myself into the earth or weave a cocoon of my scraps of canvas and wrap myself in it until the spring so instead I laid my head back and imagined the colors of the medial space, when your gaze is soft and all but closed but winter sunlight is still seeping in through the soft edges of your skin and those floating flecks of something or other appear because you squeezed your eyelids too tightly and the dark blue of the stars (or is it white?) and anyway with Solstice just around the corner what does it matter, since dark will turn to light again anyway, soon..
It seems I surprised myself with a whole new collection of paintings before the holidays. You can view them on Instagram or reply to this e-mail for the preview, a couple have already been collected, so please reach out if one interests you — they might not make it to the website!
‘WINTER SOLSTICE IN THE DESERT’ (pictured above) is available for $1300 and ships unframed with hanging hardware pre-installed. To inquire and/or purchase, reply to this e-mail or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy Solstice, looking forward to more light…
