Announcing my Spring Collection: “Beyond and Below”: an exploration of celestial and oceanic extremes as metaphors for the cerebral human experience. May 3, New Orleans Bywater Art Loft Gallery 3726 Dauphine St. 6-9pm. Countdown with me starting now as I share my inspirations and musings until the online pre-release on May 2. Pieces in this collection range from 12"x16" to 18"x24". Sketches and smaller pieces went live in the Atelier yesterday. (Link in profile) I hope you love the buoyancy and depth of this collection.

Life’s a stage, babe. Let’s go sailing. 

psst: A few new little pieces just went live in the Atelier

My practice is strong lately. I’m drawing and painting and writing everyday. I’m painting family tree commissions and working on secret projects. Getting older is hard but getting better is making up for it. It’s good to be settled in my massive studio space, and every day embody a bit more of what it means to be a working artist. With my sketching and scribbling I’m speaking a visual language I first wrote many years ago, and I find I’m in dialogue with my former self, my undiscovered self and my future self. It’s like trying to look into a black hole, around a curve, over a horizon - when you’ve stretched to your limits you catch a glimpse of what you might become and what you have been. Even when I try to recreate something I’ve made before, it comes out different because I am informed by my life experiences. The new artifact is colored with all those things I cannot un-know. 

To those of you who are also creators, I want to remind you to keep practicing, keep writing your own story, and keep finding new ways to tell it. Keep stretching over the horizon. The only way to know if you are an artist is to try to be one every day. This is true for anyone: Some days we are artists. Some days we are not. Even still, we have the chance, right? We have the chance to try. Life is a stage indeed. Merci. 

X, Rebecca

“who knows if the moon’s a balloon coming out of a keen city in the sky…”

I don’t have new original artworks ready for you today so it’s a good day to remember you can always shop for sweet pieces like these over in my merch shop.

The Bayou Tree artwork has long been the fan favorite and perhaps the most iconic image in my portfolio. It is seen here in the form of a print tapestry, hand-sewn to the same cotton canvas I paint on, and completed with an engraved brass edition plate. There are just two remaining pieces in the edition of 50, and I am offering them for purchase now for the first time in years. View more images here

The print tapestry comes with brass tacks to hang it directly on your wall, or you can have it framed in a shadow box. The stitching harkens to a family tradition of quilting, while the imagery itself was the very first of my family tree paintings that have become so memorable.
