I have not posted in awhile. I usually write my thoughts on paper, scribble a sketch, or let it pass into my imagination. I wanted to start something online. I wanted it of be for you, but this will probably be more for me. Do people even read blogs anymore?
I have finally moved into my new studio. I am by no means settled and ready for action though. I am excited to create in a new space. I created in my home for the past 4 years. I will miss it, but the freedom that will come from not seeing dishes, laundry, or a comfy couch will help my productivity.
I am worried about us. Our country. Our disagreements. Our past. Our future. The climate. The hurricanes. We are in the dark. I feel like a child when it comes to sitting with myself in a dark room. Afraid of the unknown. I am learning that to walk into the unknown requires the ability to remain content with yourself in the darkness. I am inspired by these thoughts recently.
Today- Blake and I started setting up for the "Big Gay Art Show" at The Powerhouse. The show is coming together. We included art that we have collected, art from local queer people, and some of my work. The show is really a trial run. I would love for this to be something that happens every year where artists can submit work to be entered in the show. We shall see how this one goes. The reception is September 26th from 6-8pm at the Powerhouse in Oxford, MS.
If you made it this far- stop and find your heartbeat. Sit and listen. Think of the fragility and power within you.
You are beautiful.
You are loved.
