This is basically all I see, every day, all day, living in Boston between 4 or 5 different colleges, all year. They all blend together into one supergirl. Pending background I think.
Sorry I've slacked on the posting. My personal life has become quite turbulent in the past month, ranging from stomach viruses and doctor bills to double funerals and sibling graduations. I've been living in a haze, which has demotivated me from doing anything constructive in my spare time. Time to wash that slough off and get back on track as they might say, if I may make relevant humor! Because she's running! ya, you got it.

Saw the Zorn exhibit Isabella Gardner Museum here in Boston, immediately went home excited to try a self portrait, since I hadn't painted anything from life in years. Went home, set up a mirror against the radiator and painted for 2 hours. Most of what I accomplished was realizing that I am in fact, NOT Zorn, but at least I broke my not-painting-from-life streak.
Here's a gif of my process if you're interested:

Thought I'd share something different and unusual, to say the least. A long time ago (at least 7 or 8 years ago) I was really into the Hindu mythos, and I used to paint Indian creatures and goddesses and the like; I was really obsessed with Indra Sharma, an Indian mythology painter. I painted a number of these, including this image in 2005, which must have been when i was 19:
Something about the sounds of the cosmos coming out of a sea conch, and she's listening to it on headphones, I dunno. It was a gift for an ex-girlfriend. Anyway, a group of kids in INDIA found the image on a website and told me and wanted to reproduce it in a Rangoli mural (I didn't know what that was at the time). I surprised that people in India were looking at my work, worried I had offended them somehow with my art, and then flattered that they wanted to use it at all at the same time.
Then I saw these.
