I'm working in the studio everyday now. For me, my studio is the place where I make sense to myself, it is my safest home. Sometimes I wonder, 'What the hell am I doing this for!?' Painting and art. My friend Sarah and I have been discussing this. I realize, what else would I do? This is what I do. This is a constant battle I have with myself. Is it self indulgent? Yeah, probably. But it's what makes sense to me. I have been out of work for a little under two months, I spend every day in my studio and I couldn't be happier. I know this can't go on forever. Wouldn't it be nice if it could? A question to myself.  Maybe I can make it be that way. I'm turning 30 year old in less than 20 days. Shouldn't I have a real job by now! But what does that mean exactly?
I am always brainstorming.
Above are some images of paintings I am working on. Combinations of melted crayon, wax, gouache, acrylic, colored pencil and tea stains. I'll be showing them on April 11th---announcement to come.

(Come visit me!)
Love,
Dee
