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…🙏
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. 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…
Love playing with the gold ink. Can’t get enough of it!
