"In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting."
Absurd humidity in the studio making my books all wiggly :S
First trip and everything. So impressed, but let’s see how long it lasts.
“‘A Labor of Love’ is the most recent foray into what for me is a long-term investigation of the ways in which art and daily life—from the mundane to the profound—are inextricably interwoven.” —Marcia Tucker
Elaine Reichek’s Sampler (When Adam) (1992) was included in the 1996 exhibition “A Labor of Love.”
Wishing all of you a wonderful Labor Day! Our galleries will reopen on Wednesday.
I’ve seen a few people doing these and with all the Pokemon cards I’ve got laying around I just had to try it…plus I wanted an excuse to bust out the acrylics. I think I’m addicted.
If anyone wants to buy them they’re up for grabs on my brand new Etsy shop!
those are lovely
These are incredible taking old cards and making them into full art cards! Theyre seamless! Amazing job matching the colors!
Tank top and new glasses and haircut make me feel very not me. :/
"I’m not saying that at some point love isn’t staying up until 2am phone calls or stealing kisses when you least expect it, or instantly falling for each other’s favorite songs because it is, or at least that’s what the lead up to it feels like, but real love, is so much more. It’s going out at 12am to get something to eat for your wife who can’t get out of bed, it’s listening to them as they explode with vulnerability on your living room couch talking about how they were only so young when their parents passed on. it’s remembering how someone likes their coffee in the morning without asking—without ever asking, it’s visiting someone in the hospital knowing the last thing you want to do is see them in that condition, it’s wanting to be with that person despite everything, the future, the past, and everything in between, it’s the intimate things that you don’t even realize involve such intimacy, but they do, in secret, like the pinky promises you two made behind your back, to love one another for always, in the time you thought you were in love, when you were actually just on your way to it."
