the city smells like honey


bougainvillea grows through fences. sea gusts part the clouds. valencia oranges in boxes piled on the sidewalks, hands peeling the skin to show you the fruit. “very sweet, very sweet.”

you belong only to yourself

it’s spring and art book club brainstorming is in full bloom. my good friend Nick gave me these two books a few months before our current project “breakthrough” began, and something tells me they will play a part in my work very soon. i’m reading “journals and sketchbooks” as inspiration for my coming turn with our group’s journal. sharing a journal in this project is a nod to art book club’s first collaboration, and i’m really looking forward to what our combined musings will have to say five years later (!!)

i’m also currently reading “milk and honey” by rupi kaur, and this poem stuck out to me as it’s how i feel about the group effort that is art book club. the work i produce for myself as well as in a collective must stay true.

space / body / phases – three worksΒ in the end.

Just three! Feeling the pressure to make these three the very best they can be. Feeling overwhelmed deciding if I should try new techniques or stick to what I know. Feeling excited.

I’m thinking about phases of life:


planting seeds/growth


This is for sure what I am going with -but then I struggle with how to represent each topic because my mind goes in 100 different directions because the possibilities are endless.

In the end, I need to trust what I know because it has been working for me for many years and it IS me.

a shadow on his lung

Easing into this collaboration once again, I experimented with some new color combinations and a variety of paper textures/weight.

thoughts included bodies, cancer, and sex. painting in this bedroom is somewhat new to me, but the light is perfect in the afternoon.
