I know a lot less now
It’s a shame I didn’t start blogging a few years ago when I had all the answers.
I know a lot less now.
In fact, I am not sure of very much at all.
I do however have some intentions behind starting this blog…
- I want to share the process and stories behind my artwork with my friends… whichever ones are actually reading this. Hey, Mom! There are some really wonderful stories that have inspired many of my paintings and I am going to try and pass them on in hopes that they inspire you, too.
- My husband started a blog and I have to have a place to respond back to him. I sort of convinced Tripp to start blogging again. It was one of the first things I knew of him. He is so funny, an amazing storyteller, and sometimes he likes to get deep and ask hard questions. A lot of people only know him as the funny guy, but really he is a very sensitive guy that just happens to know how to bring joy into situations that need it.
- I just got married a few months ago and moved across the country from my comfortable life in Atlanta, Georgia, where I was raised, to Los Angeles, California where the sun always shines and everyone is prettier than everyone. I miss the rain and my family, but I love figuring out how to be a wife in a new place where we really only have each other (and my best friend and dog, Jeff.) We are on an adventure together trying to build a new community that is not his or mine but ours. We are taking some risks… I am learning to cook… Tripp is learning to be patient.
I’d like the chance to write about these experiences. Maybe I will make you laugh. Maybe you will have some great advice for me. Maybe no one will read this, but that’s ok because there is something so therapeutic about writing it all down.
I already feel better. I just inspired myself to go paint something.
Thanks for being here.
