I haven’t measured the dimensions but, here I am for scale. The painting is done with acrylic on unprimed canvas. It’s my first large scale acrylic piece and I was pretty nervous starting out but, I’m pleased with the results.

This hand belongs to Sally who owns and runs the artist residency I stayed at in Montcabrier at the beginning of summer. The wine she is holding is made locally there and is one of her favorites.

Finished up this colored pencil piece at my artist residency at Azule last week! Feels good to have it done as a way of wrapping up Summer. To see some videos and picture of Azule check out my story 😊

This piece took about 30-35 hrs.
I’m still working on a name for this one and determining whether I’m going to keep working on the Nostalgia series or begin a separate series branching off from it. 🤔

**The video quality seems to be a bit hit or miss for people which is super frustrating😞 If you have any tips on getting videos to upload at a high resolution for IG, I’m all ears!

Progress on a new Nostalgia series piece of @randmarlon’s grandma’s hand ❤️ #timelapseart #handdrawing #realism

I tried a new recording method for the first hour of the drawing and unfortunately it didn’t go as planned so, here are the next 2-3 hours of the drawing. 😊

NOSTALGIA
Growing up as an introspective child, who observed social situations more than starred in them, I was, and remain, deeply curious about people’s internal relationship with themselves and how that impacts their connections with others. My work examines these relationships by looking into people’s pasts through symbols. The objects being held symbolize nostalgia for the person holding it. Through layering, building textures, scraping, scratching, and blending the drawings were developed in detail to replicate the vividness of memory that invisibly ties us to our former selves. I believe our former selves are carried within us, continually influencing our current realities. When certain parts of the past go unresolved, they remain as potential blocks in making connections with others, which is problematic. Brené Brown explained the importance of connection saying, “We are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering” (8). My goal is to give others a platform to share, connect with others, and achieve peace with the past. The vulnerability shown by those represented in the work allows for strong and meaningful connections to be made between viewers and the figures.

A little crayon art I made during class today (while listening of course)😊 If this were high school I would have gotten yelled at for drawing.

Also, I didn’t have a reference so, the lighting is a little off. #thingsthatmakemyeyetwitch #crayola #crayonart
