It will be one year in April since I finished my last painting.  
I know something is marinating.
But it's still difficult to be patient and show up for my work every day.
This was a playful way I showed up yesterday.
I played with color mixing and color association.

When I find I am experiencing a transition in my work (or in life), I look for a creative side project. I refer to these as creative commitments. These projects keep me creating while marking the time where I (can-not-so) patiently wait. 

In 2020, I titled my creative commitment “puzzle people”.  These collages are based on the idea that every person is a unique puzzle of physical features AND that we are deeply complex (puzzling) beings. In some of these people, the negative space is meant to say just as much - that there are still places of our person that can be undiscovered and, therefore, unexplained. View these HERE
