While I'm on a new path, studying to oil paint like the old's fun to look back on the last 7 years of output. ๐Ÿ˜Š This one is a great memory too because it wasn't easy to get this shot. The river water current was strong and there were 4 of us women holding mirrors all while trying to seem like it was effortless. And the image seems so still and calm to me you'd never know the craze it took to get the shot. Ha! Photography was such a lesson for me. It brought me to this journey I'm on now with oil painting, where I've finally really found my home...and I'll forever be grateful to it for that.

This is the perfect example of what my life looks like right now! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just thought I'd check in and say hello since I don't come on here much anymore. I'm in a season of incredible focus and dedication to learning figurative drawing and oil painting. I'm working so hard at drawing and studying. School has been absolutely incredible and I can see my growth already...especially in my drawing. I'm drawing from casts, and making copies of master drawings and pushing myself to the limit. There is a heavy focus on drawing in the beginning and then painting begins in a month! Omg so excited. It's a long road ahead (or so it seems) but I am cherishing every minute of it, as challenging as it is. It's such a great feeling When my hard work begins to show in my drawings. I also feel so connected to the old masters in a weird way because I am following the path they took, in learning, and it's been a dream come true. As for painted photos...I have been working on a few from my archives for a show with @refinery29uk @narsissist coming up in the fall in London. But otherwise, I've no time for anything, school is full on. I've stolen away a few times to see friends but mostly all I see is my easel, charcoal and textbooks. Writing papers and being covered in charcoal is my current reality. And I couldn't be happier. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ cannot wait to share my work with you all at some point...I'm so excited about what lies ahead. ๐Ÿ’˜๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’˜๐ŸŒˆ

After hearing a gallery dude tell me this piece was "weird" I decided to blow it up big, like 7ft big...because, Fuck that. I like weird. ๐Ÿ’— tunes: @50cent #cabinfever in the studio

Varnishing to @bigbabydram โค๏ธ๏ธ

I have to varnish it now, but this 37x55.5" piece is painted full of color now and it's almost done.๐Ÿ˜‰ (#censored )

Varnishing is the scariest part of what I's the last step and because of all of the hard work I put in to paint these expensive prints, it can all be ruined by varnishing mishaps. So, what better than to have a little calming assistance from @zaoband the record my husband @brettdetar made with them when he was in Zao in the 90s when we started dating. Fucking epic record. โค๏ธ๏ธโค๏ธ๏ธโค๏ธ๏ธ#wherebloodandfirebringrest

Working on the biggest sized version of 'Butterfly' I've ever done--for a lovely @shimmysimiya in Switzerland. I've got many hours and days ahead of me...which fly by listening to fav old tunes by @jimmyeatworld

This is EXACTLY how I feel. ๐ŸŒบCurrently Reading Georgia's biography.

Isolation coats done and onto varnishing. Last part of the equation. Then this baby is finito ๐ŸŒˆ I changed this piece a bit from previous times..I made it much darker overall with charcoal and made the blues and reds darker too. Giving it a slightly different vibe, (sorry for the censor dots ๐Ÿผ). #studiovibes
