Thankful for art

I am thankful I have a hobby I love. With both kids now both in college, suddenly no one for me to nag at, to wake up (multiple times), to cook for, scream at… wow, I have so much time to do whatever the hell I want 😂 I do miss my kiddos, and thankful for Art to help me through this letting go process…🙏

Blanket of love

Dearest daughter, it is the night before… I have to let you fly off the nest tomorrow. I am excited for you. I will miss you dearly. How could I not? 18 years.. thank you for everything. it will take a little while to adjust but I will get there. I just have to remember that it is so good for you. An exciting future lay ahead. And I send with you, all my love, support, wishes, in this blanket that I knitted. At airports, train stations, hotel rooms, at the river (looking like a crazy woman sitting under the warm sunshine knitting a blanket 😂), at home,… knitting in the positive rays of sunshine at the river, the diversity of mankind in all the places I traveled to, the learnings from the movies I watched all while knitting this blanket. This blanket of love. Know that I will always be there for you, like this blanket. There to give you a hug, when you need someone to talk to, when you need support, anything. I am here for you. I just pray I will hold it tomorrow during the drop off and not embarrass you 😂😂😂

Another recycled canvas

Another recycled canvas. It’s been fun working on this over many days, not in a hurry, just adding and subtracting, seeing where this would lead me. Truly a piece where I let go of all control and just enjoy adding one little piece at a time until I am at a point where I can say I am done. But am I really done?… for now… and this baby will be coming with me to nyc… mixed media, acrylic, collage, modeling paste…
