Update: High quality giclee prints, in four different sizes, of this painting are now available here.
I did this entire painting with Faye wrapped around me and Greta next to me eating too many sour patch kids and asking a million questions. “Is that a rainbow?” Even though I’ve done this baby thing once before, it all feels like new territory for me all over again. Faye’s first week home, I actually had to google “how to give a newborn a sponge bath.” I knew that’s what we were supposed to do until she lost her cord stump, but I had no recollection of ever doing that before (I definitely did). And every day, something new happens or shows up and I wonder, Is this normal? It’s all new again, or maybe not again. Faye isn’t Greta. And I’ve never been a mom of two before. It felt like the right time to pick up my paint brushes.
New Territory defines a new venture in my life as a new mom of two girls and, of course, the abstract landscape itself, and maybe even the new style of painting.
