Finally finished this self portrait! (Unfortunately cropped at the top because of Insta) For some reason it took awhile to get motivated to put that additional layer on the blackberry bushes but I’m happy with it now. ✨✨✨
I’m titling it “Rooted Pathway” - blackberry bushes grew behind our house in Alaska, and the mountains symbolize struggles to go around and through when growing up. In my work lately I’ve been feeling a return to childhood in the way of simplicity, truth, and joy - it’s a quiet reflection, a slight smile, a distant vision.
