Going Up and Sitting On, Stairways

Post 2 in continuing to explore the repeating themes in my work. See the first post here. I swear I thought I had done this one even more so, but I think in part I had one more planned that never panned out. I’m sure I’ll continue to return to stairs regardless. 2016 2018 2021…

White Glowing Doorways

I often find repeating themes in my work, so I’m going to highlight a few over the next few days or so, depending on how many I identify. 2014 2020

Weekly Recap: July 25 – 31

Quite an ordinary week. Started and ended with flea markets and thrift stores. Work, cleaning, cooking and all the boring stuff in between. Some creative planning, but not a lot of creative persuing.
