Deeply craving #studiotime and knowing that for this week it's not happening. Realizing it's been waaaay too long since I've had a solo show but recognize the lack of time I have to properly apply. #terrified that my #artistself is shrinking. #wip #artistresidencyinmotherhood #contourdrawings
  • If it's any consolation, I haven't had a solo since 2010!

  • Ugh. It's so hard to maintain @orlycogan I make work but do not have time to promote it, apply it towards things or update my website. So it just sits there dormant. It can be so frustrating yes?

  • @joettamaue Absolutely same boat baby... but I go back & forth between caring & not & also thinking one day my true ship will come in without a lot of promotion which is the stuff I'm not so into...

  • For what it's worth Jo, my sister started her artistic life AFTER the kids left the house and she is now rather famous in Charleston. You have a lot to come!

  • Me too @orlycogan I often just think f*** it just make the work you believe in. Just show up to the studio. But then other days I'm like wtf😭

  • Thanks @stdagro I try to remind myself of all the future time.

Chaos is the name of my life currently... In reality such a privilege to question and contemplate my path, my job, and my various roles. But nonetheless it's exhausting and overwhelming and confusing. I know that all you other mamas trying to keep all the plates in the air understand exactly what I'm saying. #motherartist #artistresidencyinmotherhood #mamahood #lightandshadow

Thinking about what inspires and moves me and trying to follow its wisdom instead of fight against it. #inspiration #lightandshadow #muse #iamawip

19 years ago... He was still weird and making me laugh. I still looked like I have a double chin when I smile. #timegoestoofast
Been calling this sweet complicated being my partner in life for nearly half my life... And today celebrates the day we made it official (whatever that means)
Marriage is a complicated road with moments of profound beauty, moments of boring repetitive landscape and moments of potholes that nearly swallow you whole. But it is an experience with this man that forces me to constantly grow, evaluate and expand. I am so grateful for such a dynamic man to call my husband. Happy anniversary. 14 years today. #happyanniversary #portrait #embroidery

The art at the @icaboston is always excellent. But the view truly stops me in my tracks. #ilovewater #nofilter #redandblue

A beautiful student example of working with #autobiographicalstitches from my #drawingwiththreadclass this summer. This work explores the memories associated with her grandmother she planned on using this specific #teacup to explore this subject. I love the #subtle nature of the #whiteonwhite tones. Join me one more time this year @snowfarmcraft as we find our own #personalstories

One more week to sign up for my last big #artworkshop of the season @snowfarmcraft next weekend. For 3 days we will explore #autobiographicalstitches #handembroidery and the #self in the beauty of #westernmass -- these are from the series of hand #embroidery #contourdrawings that I'm doing about the tension of #timepassing and #motherhood #artistresidencyinmotherhood
