๐ŸคณGood old fashion selfie ๐Ÿ˜„
.

Oil paint is a medium that forces me to work much slower than others. The linseed oil causes it to dry at a snail's pace... I create underlayers & slowly build up the color and texture. This work-in-progress is finally *getting there* as I add in darker pigments. Patience is a virtue, right?

As you get into the holiday spirit, think about ways to up-cycle, re-use and reappropriate decorations! Experiences and hand-made items can be some of the most meaningful gifts.

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! โš  If you're feeling extra plus-sized after your holiday meals, remember that you are BEAUTIFUL and VALUABLE no matter your size or weight. ๐Ÿ’
๐Ÿ’– I shared meals with family over the weekend and reflected on how grateful I am... My health, loved ones, cute animals and art are just some of the things I feel extremely thankful for. ๐Ÿ’•
๐Ÿฅ‚ Despite the fact that Thanksgiving has problematic colonial/imperialistic connotations and typically revolves around consuming various meats, I'd still rank it as one of my favorite holidays. ๐Ÿคท I choose to focus on the theme of gratitude and appreciate quality fam time. Thank you to everyone who hosted and entertained us ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™† .

This is a quick sketch of Jodi, the ex-fiancรฉe of Steven Avery. She was prominently featured in part one, but since their split she has alleged Steven's guilt in the media. What do you think??

Wow... I spent all day at the #Delacroix show at the Met: studying and staring. It's a really comprehensive retrospective, encompassing so many of his famous works. Since Delacroix is often referred to as a "painterly" artist, I found his graphite and pen sketches to be fascinating. The inclusion of his journals and sketchbooks allowed for a deeper insight into his personal relationships and artistic practice. 
It was awesome to see his quick studies for larger pieces - to retrace his hand and trains of thought. All of his influences, both historical and contemporary - so clearly referenced and defined.
 I was very moved while reading about his relationship with #Gericault - particularly a passage mourning his death... I've been processing the news of a mentor's passing recently, so this was an extremely cathartic experience for me. ๐Ÿ–Œ๐ŸŽจ

๐Ÿ™ When the mind is at peace,
The world, too, is at peace
Nothing is real. Nothing is absent.
Not holding onto reality,
Not getting stuck in the void.
You are neither holy, nor wise
Just an ordinary fellow
who has completed his work.

I read an interview with Carol Bove; she said that upon completing school, she locked herself in a studio and allowed herself to make whatever art came naturally. Without the pressure of watchful eyes, she wound up making lots of drawings of pretty women. I laughed so hard when I read that, bc I've been drawing implicitly lately. & Sometimes that's just what comes out! It's hard for me to share these warmup sketches, since they're shot in 1 take & I tend to be a perfectionist... It's easy to feel embarrassed. ๐Ÿ™ˆ .
Carol's husband Gordon was my Foundation year professor; a great guy. He was always telling me that I overworked my drawings. It was true. I didn't know when to stop! ๐Ÿคฃ Fast forward to my junior year & Michael St. John told me that I wasn't spending ENOUGH time on each drawing. This seemed contradictory, but it was also true. I wasn't reliably reaching photorealistic quality or exercising patience. He knew that I could if I wanted to, if I slowed it down. But I didn't know what I wanted yet.
.
In Senior Studios I got a lot of valuable feedback from my peers and professors. Under the guidance of Keith Mayerson, whose work & worldview inspire me tremendously, I found my rhythm and confidence. ๐Ÿ’ก
.
I am forever grateful to them and to Rob Fischer, Claudia Joskowicz, Hiroshi Sunairi, Jason Martin, Adam Putnam, Jesse Bransford, David Rimanelli, Kanik Chung, Elaine Li & Kirby Gookin. On a personal level, you all held me to higher standards than I held myself to, at the time. In hindsight I can see how bad I was at accepting criticism ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ญ but I seriously needed it. In addition to helping me become a better artist, you all helped me grow as a person. I hope you know how much I appreciate your mentorship and advice, still today. ๐Ÿ™ .
Anyway, my point is, sometimes we need to hear things that we don't want to hear from people we respect. And sometimes we need to make art that come from a weird, incomprehensible place inside. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿ’– I'm very grateful for the artists, friends and teachers who have helped me in this crazy life.
