the desert

I am going to miss being in the desert. I am going to miss being in the mountains and near the Pacific Ocean. In less than a week’s time I will be back three hours into the future and reflecting on my summer of 2011. These past few months have been some of the hardest, loneliest, best, and exciting of my life.
So, here’s to Florida and California and New York. Today I am writing out my six month plan because, yes, I am moving back to New York next year.
I can’t wait to look back on this time in my life and feel so amazingly smart and strong for it.

whiskey &handmade crafts

So much has happened since I last blogged however many hours ago!

Updates on the New York piece I posted and a figure study based on a piece by Egon Schiele. Plus business card ideas.

new by brokenbees

Slowly but surely working on a new piece - experimenting with watercolor &coffee dyed handmade paper.

I packed up my bags yet again and now I am drifting in Hollywood until I fly back to Florida on the 20th. Tomorrow Gina and I are heading to Venice Beach to hang out with our artist friend Chris to sell clothes and art. I am trying to churn out some new pieces and also make some “business” cards to try &leave some sort of mark on Los Angeles before I bolt.

Things I look forward to:
-endless sleepovers
-staying up all night in RR Square painting &sewing
-the cold?
