At last- back in #theinkubator !!! I’m sinking into the tiny details already when it’s just a basic drawing, maybe too soon, but I just can’t help myself. In my defense, to all my students into whom I drilled the principal of General to Specific: this is a work about discovery in the moment. (I also told you there are always exceptions to all rules.) This work addresses pregnancy by way of the theoretical: what is known from external sources, sensations perceived internally, and my imagination fills in the gaps. Yet it’s all still the most magical mystery, the most common of miracles. #inkpainting #spiritedanatomy #selfportrait #gloriousplacenta
After several days of naught but grading, it’s time to take off my teacher hat for the summer and get ready to put on the mama hat for the first time. It’s getting so real! Approximately seven weeks to go!!! #naturalmama #allmyorgansrearranged #butfeelinggreat #thirdtrimester
Absolutely enthralled by the color, brushwork and elemental line-work in this extraordinary painting of Pandora!!!
Meanwhile, at The Met... beware!!! #badbitch #getitgrrrl
Another intriguing final drawing for my figure class! I really love creating these living installations for the class, and the students love it too! I also really appreciate models who are excited to play along with us, and when I ask: “will you wear a creepy mask and climb inside this drum?” -she says yes! He also showed up with white flowers tucked in his beard, which was ADORABLE!!!! This set up featured high contrasting black & white, with stark light, mirrors and a projection of flowing lava cast upon them. The students work turned out so well, and I love drawing with them too. #hiddenselfportrait #lifeofateacher #lifedrawing #msudenverart

Pics not allowed, but @a_plant_growing snuck in this shot of Björk’s final number. An absolutely STUNNING performance! All you could ever hope for and more: emotionally, visually and sonically the best beyond imagination! New songs, renewed old songs, phenomenal stage set up in a sparkling new venue, both classical and cutting-edge innovations, she’s the most beautiful and unique being on the face of the earth!!!!
Somehow we managed to be the most eccentric couple at a @bjork concert @theshedny #fancy #inlove #babybump #bestmothersdayever @a_plant_growing
