"You can think about yellow and think about blue" 24x36 Diptych


“You can think about yellow or think about blue,” 24x36 diptych, Acrylic, crackle paste, oil pastels on canvas, 2023

This is a piece about forced change and evolution in new parenthood. As soon as you’ve cracked the code on figuring out your child or establishing a schedule, they change. The transparent crackling layers in this piece show the entire story of forced adoption of a new norm, then changing it allover again; a quick pivot that shows traces of what was once comfortable and safe. “Letting go” as a parent has been a learning process that has taught me so much grace and acceptance. This piece celebrates that growth and acknowledges the beauty of the journey
