What I've Been Working On: August 2018

Wow, what a month! I apparently have been very busy. Ha. I feel like my fingers are on fire (in a good way like I can't stop making things and also in a bad way because they hurt from making so many things). It really feels like my hands are trying to make up for their year of low energy levels by trying to literally create every spare minute. Mentally I love it but also wish I could slow down a bit and maybe not lay awake for hours in bed thinking about painting. But what can you do in these periods except just roll with what your body is telling you to do? Making makes me happy. 

Everyone Has Pineapple Pants In Their Past

When I was in grade nine my mom found a pair of pants she had in the '70's and passed them on to me. They were black and harem-style-ish and had black embroidered pineapples all over them. Since grade nine was the year that I started growing (I think I grew 3 inches that year), I quickly outgrew them and the ankle band sat mid-calf for most of that year.
