Vulnerable & New


Begin as you would like to continue” is what the amazing Jamie Ridler said to me.

The last time I attempted a self portrait I was in art school, about 15 years ago. But I want to begin this journey with a deeper honesty. I picked up the brush, sat in front of a mirror, and on my 34th birthday I started from the beginning again.

Vulnerable and new. That’s how I feel. New to this painting thing, even though I’ve been doing it forever now. Vulnerable, because I have to accept where I am, and how much I have to learn, and all the time I’ve wasted painting…but wasn’t really painting at all.

I’m getting back to basics. Diving into the painting process itself. Learning all the things I thought I forgot. Waking up from a deep sleep.

Peace & Love.
