COVID is continuing to affect my ability to make art…or is it my school district? Hard to say. The day job is definitely partially at fault.
I started a large quilt in October 2021 and finished it in January 2022. This is My Body. My Choice.
52” w x 54” h, $6395. You can see it at the Visions Art Museum in October.
Then I started Desert Mother for a show; finished it 2 weeks after the deadline. My fault for taking Spring Break off, I guess. I don’t have official photos yet, but when I get my act together, it’ll be here. That would be now!
57” w x 57 ½” h, $7285.
I finished another one that was strongly colored by the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, shootings in the US, human rights (women, BIPOC, LGTBQ) being bludgeoned by the government, and other happy moments of 2022. This is The Way Out…
51 ¼” w x 80 ½” h, $5997
In July, I drew a reaction to Roe v Wade falling AND all the other shit that was still going on. 2022 might be the year of the Anxiety Quilts. I was hoping it would be done by the end of September. That didn’t happen. This is Same As It Ever Was, started in July and not finished until November. Shitty school year.
57” w x 71” h, $7805
And then I finished one that just got named before the new year flipped in: Only Action and Consequence.
35.5 w x 43.5 h, $3235.
And in the last week, I finished up a piece that was drawn on February 8, 1993. It deserved to be finished just for not disappearing in the last 30 years…minus a month and a half. This is Christmas Lights ’93, which also needs real photos.
15” w x 13” h, $495
I really need to make some smaller pieces. I’m going to need a couple pieces with no nudity in them for some shows that are coming up. In fact, I need a shit ton of work right now, and I have no time to do that. Ah well. 2022 proved difficult for artmaking. It’s always my goal to improve that shit though…so know I am trying.
