Twin Art

Today I went to my friend Karmin & her twin Anie’s birthday party. I had a set of abstract paintings that were mostly done & needed a little something extra. They’re what I call “sister” paintings, meaning I made them using the same color palette at the same time. I wanted to further connect them, so on each of the four sides of the panels, there are elements that cross the edge & correspond with the sister painting. You can either consciously hang them the same direction in your separate rooms or homes, consciously hang them oppositionally, or just hang them however you prefer just knowing that however you hang this painting has no effect on your bond.

I just thought it was a cool idea & will definitely be doing more in the future.

Art is not precious

I keep hearing on podcasts & seeing that phrase, “art is not precious” I have so many pieces that I’d be super bummed if they got one more spot on them, but I probably have just as many that I want to keep exploring. Below is two paintings that I’ve further explored. They were pretty & all & some people have preferred them in the ‘before’ stage, but since they’re not buying I get to finish them how I please. They were both hanging out in our spare room, propped up against the wall for about a year. I tried to place them around the house, bring them out for open studios, & at different venues, but they were just too bold for this area.

Part of my #100daysofjj challenge is to go outside my comfort zone. Is there a piece that just isn’t working for you that you could dive back into?

My most recent work, painted over a piece from last year.
