8x10 painting in ornate, antique gold 11x14 frame. Art is resin coated into the frame and cannot be removed. Ready to hang.
I'll never forget the very first time I saw a sunset in the desert and the way the emptiness became me. Such a relief. It let me see what I could feel and in that moment - the vastness of the open desert gave me a different identity. I was in a class the other day and both of the ladies with me were laughing about how much they hate Arizona. It was a jarring thought that I tried on for a moment. Like I could just erase myself and decide something else.
May we all live long enough to recognize what was salvation and what wasn't even close. A long time ago I grew out of the luxury of confusion. The momentum of grief, gone. For so many decades I wrapped it all up in the most beautiful antique gold I could create. It was such love, such a story, such a sunset and now I know I was just really really sick and the only magic was what I imagined. I can't pick a fight with a ghost so I just feel my feelings and take all of my magic and make beautiful things for other people instead.
