Make Pretend Collection: Little Max and Carol, tiny format IV. 5x7” oil on mini panel
Do practical things if you want your tombstone to read
"They were practical."
Do what makes sense if you think it should say
"Their life made sense."
Do what the world wants if you believe in the epitaph
"They did what the world wanted them to do."
But if you want it to read
"They lived every second they were given
and touched the sky every chance they had,
they burned and blazed in all the colours the eye can see
and left a hole shaped like them in the world
when they left."
Then do something else. - pleasefindthis
To see my work go to places they are treasured is the most heartening experience. Legacy is what gives artists the chance to answer the question of “how do I want to be remembered?”
My work is what will remain here long after I go and it means the world to have collectors who I have come to adore. Thank you for believing in me. 🥺 I won’t be a nurse practitioner forever but I assure you,
I’ll paint until I can’t.
What do you want the hole shaped like you in the world to look like when you leave?
