The posts are in. Letting them set for a few days. Then begins the real fun. Building a 15 foot 3 story fort for the boys in the back.

Pasted up some wheatpastes today with the boys in the garden. It's been a very garden oriented weekend.

I work my ass off in the studio. I work my ass off when I teach. I work my ass off at the agency. My therapist said I needed something to help me center. I love gardening.

I work my ass off in the garden. Go figure.

What Kind Of Pith I’ve Amassed

I finished an image today that has been sitting in my studio since December 13th. I had been engaged in the image; it was my solace in the chaos that my mother’s life had become. That day, her oncologist that we had been trying to get an appointment with for over a week called her and said it was important to get to their office ASAP. I had an inkling that something was awful, and eared that the cancer might have moved to her brain. I was in the studio nervously working on the image when I received a call from the nurse at the oncologist’s office and she proceeded to tell me that my mother’s cancer had moved to her brain. I asked her if it was terminal and she verified my fears. My mother called shortly there after and had not been told by her neurologist whose job it was to inform her the full extent of her situation. I told her that it was on her brain, and she appeared to have no idea what I was talking about. I put my crayons down and turned this image around to face the wall of my studio. It has sat there for over 4 months. She has been on my mind a lot this week. A friend of mine lost his father, and I don’t know why but it really hit me. Things of hers that I now own are suddenly breaking. It’s been rather intense. I had students in my studio on Monday and I caught the image as I cleaned up in preparation. I finished it today.

Verdant. I was talking to @carlomccormickick and a friend of his last night about art and life and there was mention of all these artists upstate that have become farmers. I get it. I love gardening. Nature is fascinating, and interacting with it FEELS good. I've gone full bore back into it, and I hope I can really cultivate an amazing space this summer. I am starting a fort for my children in the back and I am considering doing vertical gardening on 3 of it's sides and planting wildflower seeds on the roof.

On Monday, I held my class at my studio so that we could spray 3 color stencils. I have spent the remainder of my class integrating techniques used by street artists to broaden my student's technical base and hopefully open their eyes more to the gems that are out in the urban environment.
