 A sneak peek of my new headpieces that will be hanging in Caprice! The show opening will be Thursday, July 10th. You won’t want to miss!

While finishing up the last few paintings of this headpiece series, I came across this quote that so perfectly synchronizes how I have been feeling about my artwork lately,

| “Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.  Making your unknown known is the important thing.” Georgia O’Keeffe |

What an inspiring passage, Georgia. While keeping these words in mind, I have released some of my internal pressure to produce past the creative-stunting questions, (is it good enough? who will like it? Will it sell?).  Just make it! These questions are essential in a self critique, but more importantly, and simply, accomplishing artwork is about showing what is inside of you that would not otherwise be seen. And that feels good.

I am currently on a mission to whip out a chunk of new paintings for next month’s show at Caprice. My friend, Alex Beaver will be hanging his work as well. Yay! I will be hanging a variety of small and large paintings from my headpiece series, and can’t wait to see them in the space. 

Also, the pot is stewing for another show at Canapé at the end of July, keep posted!
