Finishing touches…

I was just in the studio this Friday morning. It feels great to be home after 1 1/2 weeks in New York. We had an amazing time in Buffalo and NYC. It’s nice to have the day to do as I wish.

This safety pin is part of my “sewing” series and it was also part of my “what the fuck is happening to our County series?!” ┬áPeople were wearing safety pins to let others know that you are a safe being (to combat the increase in hate crimes since the election). Doing art, reading, and getting a good work out helps me deal with the ugliness in the world.

 

 

 

 

Safety pin

I did a quick sketch this morning. Using a safety pin was on my “to do list” as part of my sewing theme. But this is different. This is necessary for me to communicate – I am a person who is in solidarity with those who have less privilege in our society. I am also someone who understands my own sense of privilege. Please know that I am a safe person who will stand up to injustice to the best of my ability.
