I’m writing today with a large iced coffee in hand waiting for a huge canvas covered in gesso to dry… A fan is also blowing in my face. I just dropped a roll of mylar on my toes so today is feeling chaotic but let’s see what I come up with for this newsletter.
I’m not quite sure what this newsletter will be, but I am probably just gonna make it up as I go :o) It probably will be a lot of just “here’s some new artwork I’ve been making” but I want to try to make it something more interesting.... Inspiration, thoughts, stories, memories. Things that go on in my head while I make the artwork that will inevitably be showcased.
This past month, I’ve been thinking about summer days at Yin Yin’s house (Yin Yin is my family’s word for our grandma, it’s not from the Chinese word for grandma and I’m pretty sure it isn’t Burmese either, so we might have made it up as kids). Her lawn doesn’t have the more desirable grass found throughout the suburbs of LA that is soft and svelte with a deep green color. Yin Yin’s grass is a lighter green. It’s thicker and harder with a sharp and scratchy, but supportive feeling under our bare feet. She also had a large flowering tree out front that is no longer standing.
