Empty Nest

AS IS is as much a project about letting go as it is about anything else. (Thank you to my friend, Carrie, for her beautiful blog post on that subject!) I have to say that it has been strangely emotional to have worked on these portraits for so long, only to have left them on the street. Come what may. If I am being really dramatic, I might even say that it feels a little like I dropped my ten children on various doorsteps around the city, and hightailed it out of there, hoping for a better life for them...
O.K., O.K., that was a little Ophelia of me, but one thing is for sure, my studio is feeling strangely empty without those ten faces staring out at me this week.


  1. Just found you via Moss Eclectic and wanted to say I think this project is extraordinary. Would love to hear any follow-up.
    All best,

  2. Hey Nicole! I actually wondered if you got emotional at all when you dropped the paintings off. It's not surprising that each one would have a special place in your heart. I don't think it's dramatic at all :)
    Love your work!

  3. Hey Marita, I appreciate that. Thank you!
