Well, once again it's been a little while. And while I love sharing my work with all of you on here, this recent season has taken me away from Instagram, and more into the life beyond my fingertips. Between dealing with the stresses of life, leaving one job, starting a new one, buying my first car, investing in friendships and relationships, and taking care of my new little kitten Luna, the days have flown by.
And after these breaks, I often think, where do we start? Where and how do we pick up when so much has happened?
I've found that sometimes starting again takes reflection. I've been doing this a bit with my work as it feels like its hit a stale point. The ideas are coming slower, and my motivation to make things happen feels stagnant. So I’m looking back at the work I’ve made, as it often only makes sense after the fact - after I’m able to connect the feelings and experiences of a certain season with the visual outcome of the painting.
So here’s to a time of reflecting back, with the hope of a new season of growth, and one where our work helps us to work through our lives.
