A pic of part of my most recent large-scale piece. โœจโœจโœจThis piece has now become the fine art piece that I have spent the most time on and is 4ft x 6 ft. Now hitting up to 6 months working through the problems, standstills and breakthroughs... Working on one piece for this long has taught me more about being patient, not giving up on a piece that seems lost, and not allowing myself to get too attached to my initial idea... When I first started this one, I imagined an underwater scene, but as I kept following my marks, it started to reveal itself... Every time I put some working fixative on it, I would come back to it the next day and realize that I knew the next mark it needed.....then I would find myself hours later, hands black with charcoal and watch sprinkled in white, looking at something different. While working on pieces, especially ones like this, I find a whole lot of parallels to everyday human lessons and insights. Almost like falling down a rabbit hole to drift off into a different world, and coming back out to find myself looking at something from a different perspective. Itโ€™s insane but such a beautiful addiction ๐Ÿ–คโœจโœจ

Was throwing my dorky laugh all day, and I couldnโ€™t help it... The funny thing about this photo was that we were driving back from our wedding ceremony and an old childhood friend caught us coming off the freeway and snapped this photo! Canโ€™t believe you caught us on such a special day @lexhatch !!! I will cherish this photo forever! Really something else ๐Ÿ˜‚!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™
