From sketch to finished painting, The Bird With It’s Nest was a 4 year thought process from the sketch to painting. It didn’t take me 4 years to paint but the amount of changes from ideas changed with my emotions and dealings with having a miscarriage in 2010. It was heartbreaking to draw and paint but it healed me with a process I haven’t experienced before. It challenged me with the ideas and thoughts of a woman’s reproductive systems and how sometimes we have no control over what our own bodies reject. Miscarriage isn’t something people have conversations about because it’s either uncomfortable and the recipient either understands or silently judges you for no reasons but of their own. But it does happen and it’s what we make of it that can be beautiful to remember, because I want to remember. So here’s my painting, a self portrait of The Bird With It’s Nest.
36x18x1.5″ collage and oil on wood panel.
More drawings have been added to the sketches section. These four featured drawings will be available for sale very soon, stay tuned. Their titles are a bit strange and I have a lot more drawings that I’ve been working on in the past few weeks, I promise to show them to you once my collection is complete.
In depth detail of the hand, necklace and kovsch from the painting “Kovsch of the Lady Moscow”. Oils and collage.
