"Milestones in Motion"

36″ x 36″ acrylic, crackle paste & oil pastel on canvas, 2023

 

It’s a funny thing becoming a mother.  Suddenly time is told through your child’s milestones that are slow at first then start to feel unstoppable, flashing before your eyes. You never feel ready for something to end yet simultaneously you couldn’t feel more excited for the next chapter. It’s this constant feeling of forced change and transformation happening right before your eyes.  As I painted this piece, I processed another milstone I was experienced with my 17 month daughter in the end of nursing, this deep connection I had worked so hard to establish with her and was so hard to let go. But we move forward as parents every day, holding on to what was, filled with joy for what is, thrilled for what’s to come.

"The Quick Queen of Quincy"

14″ x 18″ acrylic, crackle paste & oil pastels in upcycled vintage frames, 2023

 

I created this playful pair to portray the sudden joy I feel ever time my 17 month old daughter makes me smile.  Her curiosity, sense of wonder and zest for life is a breath of fresh air in my life and forces me to smile and feel joy in moments that may otherwise have been missed.  The sense of repetition, bold color and whimsical shapes are influenced by the Dr. Seuss books I’ve ben reading to her on repeat.  This playful pair forces you to stop and smile, to soften the tension you may carry from a rough day; to remind you to not take life to seriously.  Just like my Avery.
