to build a home
this 33 x 47 x 3 walnut wood canvas is housed in a poplar wood frame. mediums include plaster + ink + oil + concrete + sand + shells + woods stain + crushed crystal quartz + rock pigment + rust. this painting would make the perfect addition to an organic modern, minimalist, contemporary, scandinavian. mid-century, and even southwestern design.
this may be my favorite painting i've ever created. i do not say that lightly, as I grow pretty attached to most of my works.
Every day I work to plant roots within myself. Clean my HOME that is my body. Furnish my body/home with things that bring me joy. Embrace movement that feels good for my body and soul, hobbies that make me feel connected to myself, and build self-esteem and self-worth by doing esteem-able acts. No matter the relationship I have with anyone on this planet, no matter the comfort of any space or state, or country I live in: I live in my body. My home is my body. The people, hobbies, nature, and activities I surround myself with are merely a reflection of how I think I deserve to be treated at that moment. The more I declutter the toxicity in my home, the safer and more secure I will feel to move about this life knowing no matter what the circumstance I will be okay because I am me.
The journey to self-love is an endless one. WE are faced with adversity daily that challenges the beliefs we have formed of who are at our core every day, it is our responsibility to keep rebuilding and improving our souls' structural core foundation.
