Adding things to my prints helps me to stay in conversation with them. It helps make them more personal. It helps me learn new skills, to think through new ideas. Printmaking is only one step along the way. Of course, some series and prints call out for it, and others beg to be left alone. So, I listen hard. #fineartist #doitfortheprocess // 📷 @annahedges // ✨
"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
--Lao Tzu

"Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does."
-- Margaret Atwood

A friend once told me that every birth created a mother, and within every mother was born the dream of escape.

"The dream of escape"
[a tiny immersive play]

A neon sign vaguely illuminates a nondescript building: "The Off-Duty Moms Motel." At the door, you are asked for your credentials before you can proceed: "How many moms does it take to change a lightbulb?" (Any empowered or self-effacing answer will be accepted.) You enter.

The interior is a completely different world. Stylish. Sexy. Smoky, but not a cigarette smoke...this is the kind of smokiness that can wrap you up or allow you to cut right through, based on your level of desired exposure or intimacy.
You are silently greeted by the proprietor, an elegant woman in a dapper pinstripe suit. Her name is stitched onto a pocket: Tia. She guides you to your room.

In your room, for no cost (you are an off-duty mom, after all. You're covered.), you may: -watch reruns on tv while enjoying the finest greasy Chinese take-out -have a bath in the spotless jacuzzi tub full of air jets (and facing the tv, in case you'd like to combine options. But there is also a small bookshelf inset above your tub, featuring genre work, great literature and comics, as well as magazines full of healthy humans whose lovely minds and solid self-esteem are the thing on super-sexy showcase) -Order a massage -Change into any of the comfortable, fashionable outfits stocking your spacious closet, chosen specifically for you and loving on the current form your body has taken.
You may choose to spend the entire night in your room. Or...you may venture down to the basement lounge.

The bar hosts an epic array of well-named cocktails and an equally epic array of intriguing and safe people to flirt with, parents and non-parents alike, carefully chosen from the outside world. You know this from your pamphlet. The pamphlet that also highly recommended you do your best to steer clear of talk of your children; here, there is only you. And that is ok. That is ok. That is ok.

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
