[January 19,2020 Original posting, sketches , mixed media ink/watercolor 2015-2020] It was this succession of posts that got me softly blocked by instagram as I guess I uploaded them too quickly in succession and the app thought I was a robot? Lesson learned. One post a day!
*It's been brought to my attention that my content, everything I've ever put on instagram, I don't own.
If social media collapses, so does everything I've written about my work.
So I'll be going through my posts and working to transfer my work, my thoughtful captions, etc to my own blog.
This is sort of a visual autopsy of sorts until we get caught up to present day!
“We all build internal sea walls to keep at bay the sadnesses of life. We build these walls stone by stone over a lifetime. One problem is to construct a barrier of such height that one has a harbor, a sanctuary away from pain, yet low enough and permeable enough to let in fresh seawater to fend off the inclination toward brackishness. “- Kay Jamison .
Here’s to being a brackish girl 🦑and being brave enough to show my monsters to the world, finally. Here I am summoning the courage to disappoint everyone in my life (re: art is not my day job!). . .
✍️🖤Ink, watercolor, pencil on paper .
👩🏻🎨So many works to continue sharing, I’m realizing even if I post 10 times a day (don’t do this, learned my lesson yesterday! Sorry Instagram!) it’s going to take months to catch this page up to my present artwork, which is quite overwhelming. But, This is the year I let it go. 2020, you’re radically challenging my self confidence and I’m totally here for it
