Show at Ouachita Valley Branch Library

My first solo exhibit at a library! How cool?! My mom is a librarian, shout out to Mom! She is awesome, and I'm so glad to be showing at a library space. I wish she could see it! :)

Also, it's my Dad's birthday and voting day. So this week is pretty incredible. Here's a preview of some work for my show.

I am loving playing with pattern, and most of the work has never been seen before. I am grateful because this year I get to have this small show and a larger solo show in February. I get to show off new work that I've been making and thinking about for a long time.

Where do I go? 11x14", oil on canvas.

I am in love with pinks, corals and reds right now. So that is a common theme of my work. I'm trying not to over-analyze it, however it has a strong presence. I've also noticed how much of my work is pushing me further into abstraction, without losing a sense of landscape. I like the idea of landscape, but for me it's less about what's actually there and more about the feelings one may gather from observing or moving through a space. And some days I question whether I should be painting or doing something further with fiber or installation.
