Where Does It Hurt?

My final paper/project for my Writing as Art class last semester… I was going to make some edits before sharing it, but I decided to post it the way it was submitted first. I’m very attached to this work and will continue to develop it over the next few months. Creating this project was both challenging and incredibly rewarding. The thought of sharing it publicly gives me a lot of anxiety, but I am interested to see how others receive it. Please feel free to leave comments! xoxo

Peeks at the Process of Yes II


For the past few weeks I’ve been working on this painting in conjunction with a collection of writing for a grad school project. I am planning to share the project before the end of May, but for now here are some peeks at the process:

New Work: Finger Lickin’ Good

Finger Lickin' Good

Finger Lickin’ Good
Watercolor + ink
12″ x 9″

This piece is the first in a new series of mine titled “Diabetes on the Brain”. I’ve taken popular slogans and applied them to my life with diabetes. If you haven’t already guessed, the slogan I chose for this piece is from KFC. And yes, I do lick my finger after testing my blood sugar, mostly because it’s convenient. I just couldn’t resist the combination of the phrase and this imagery ;]

Finger Lickin' Good (detail)

I have a whole list of slogans that I’ll be using and for now, the plan is to continue making watercolor + ink paintings in a variety of sizes. At first, I was going to include the slogan in the actual artwork, but I think I’m going to just use it in the title and let the audience make that connection, especially when seeing the series as a whole.
