FINALLY back on Ello! Yay!!! I took some time away from work this year to focus on my health, and slowly but surely I'm continuing to recover, doing amazingly better than a year ago. 🙂 I'm going to start back here slowly with weekly posts and grow from there. (And yes, you can bribe me to post more often with comments and shares. 😄)
Since I last posted I've been slowly making art for my afterlife series, and the collection of works in progress finally a name: "You Drift Away Closer and Closer: Fieldnotes from the Modern Afterlife" traverses the invisible wall between the living and the dead to create a lexicon of imagery for a secular afterlife.
The pic I'm sharing is a detail from one of the works I finished during my Instagram hiatus, a tiny mixed-media piece entitled "Other fragments of himself made their appearance." (6" x 7.5" Graphite, ink, acrylic, copper leaf, collage and found text on century-old paper, 2018.)
I'll work on putting together another post for next week. In the meantime, let me know if you want to be added to my email list when I start that up again--can you message people on ello? I've been off of here so long I don't even know...
Thanks for your patience and it's good to be back!
