Long post, I know, but I've been working and thinking. I realize that much of what I draw and paint has to do with growth and repair. Roots, rivulets, nets, weaves, mends. Organic processes. I believe in repair as a means of growth. Repairing what is broken; reaching across some strain to mend. It's easier to give up and start something new, but I don't think the beauty comes from that, but rather in the growth that comes from repair. I've also re-opened my Etsy shop, and am planning to put some of these in the shop in the next few days. I also realized I liked to keep the best stuff for myself, to remind myself that I can do it. But I'm changing that and offering my best because I have faith in the process!
