Day 1

Water color, pen and ink on paper.

This was a meditation on my room in Andersonville, TN where we stayed for 4 months. The painting is a mixture of anxiety, and depression since I was actively grieving a loss.

Day 2
Day 2

Watercolor on paper

I spent a lot of time around the beautiful Lake Norris while working on paintings. I noticed originally I thought 4 months away from work, and my life in Pittsburgh would create instant bliss. An extended vacation of sorts with my family. What I didn't realize was how much of my past unhealed wounds would resurface in the quiet.

Watercolor and neutral tint on paper

I discovered neutral tint from the comic artist Simon Hanselmann. I saw his comic Megg and Mogg on depression and fell in love with the coloring and his work! When I emailed him to find out what paints he used he was incredibly gracious and helpful.

Neutral tint is a mainstay in my art supplies.

Watercolor on paper

This is one of the first paintings I did when we moved to TN. Since we moved there in January everything was stark and the lighting was a gorgeous blue gray color.

Whittled boat from found driftwood

Since we were right across from Lake Norris I would walk there multiple times a day and collect driftwood. I found myself one day being extremely ecstatic about the idea of whittling. This is my second attempt at carving a boat.

Day 15

Watercolor on paper 

I've always wished I could be an abstract painter since the majority of my work is very personal and stirs up very uncomfortable emotions.

Driftwood I carved the words “I love the way again in stillness, in isolation welcoming all things.” 

Most of my days were spent painting, walking Kota (our husky) and creating art. I wanted to meld all of these things together. Since playing fetch was such a big part of our day I loved the idea of carving a stick Kota used for play. I filmed him bringing it back.
