• THE LOVE IN LOSS •
this face was inspired by my lovely friend @visiblejune
for her new february cover issue on @femmefeaturemag
!! i’m so enamoured by her work and always will be— she’s an absolute angel and inspired me to paint a bit of heaven!
with how the pearls and pendants are in place, this piece is a genogram of my current family lineage. the different placements with the different numbers of pearls in place signify my family and their connections to myself and each other. i’ll be presenting this work to my classmates later, so if y’all see this, be surprised in person pls lmao!
