This is what has come out so far...
This piece was inspired by my friend Maisha, I had got with her to go get her first tattoo about a week before this and it was the predominate thing on my mind. I had documented the experience with lots of pictures and I was try to test my memory to see if I could create the picture I saw in my head.
This week I was really focused on my name and the plants I am named after, I wanted to bring back to life my poor plants that died in the freeze, all while playing with my new watercolor box my mom got me. The results were pleasing.
This is my favorite so far because I feel like it's about a lot of things that I wasn't presently thinking about when I was working on this, but now seeing it days later, are evident. It's a closure to accepting the end of a friendship. It's an illusion, he's there, but not really there, fading from my life. Art is good about making peace with situations you have no control over...
