A little preview for a long time coming reveal. Usually I'm not a teaser-image person but....this painting has been gently haunting me in various stages of completeness for a long, long time, and it's still yet to click that it's finally finished, and it's been so long that I almost feel weird about sharing the whole thing (don't worry, I will). I started it all the way back in December, right before moving, at the start of another bout of art block and a really low mental point. But I had an idea for a painting and started it, with no particular reason or motivation other than a personal need. In between work sessions it's spent a lot of time in a drawer over the last seven months, and I was pretty sure many times that it was going to stay there.
Every artwork feels personal, of course, but this one especially so, and in a weird way. Not so much for the actual artwork content; I've been on-off working on it for so long and at such an odd time in my life that I feel like a significantly different person now than I was when I started it. It feels really good to finish an artwork, not for an external purpose or deadline, just for the simple sake of caring about it, a lot. I'm really excited to share something new.
If you've made it this far...you'll be the first to know that this is also a soft heads-up that I'm going to be doing a very small shop update on Saturday, July 3rd, prints of this piece to be included! And, something a little different this time, in addition to the usual open edition prints, I'll be offering a special hand-embellished Limited Edition version as well. More details on those to come over the next few days :)
