Another tie-dye shirt. Long sleeve this time.
A song almost 10 years old now, but I wanted to see if I could still sing it.
Left pic is the cover and the right is collage on the inside.
These are charcoal on tissue paper skull drawings over a collage of my ripped up poem and journal pages. Turned out to be a very fun project.
A variation of a photo I took last year around this time. The colors were beautiful then and so far I’ve not been able to get out and capture much fall scenery yet. Maybe soon.
Yesterday, Oct 25th was my 32nd birthday. I recorded this vid last year around my 31st and just held onto it. The song will be in a collection one day but in the meantime, I listen to it as a reminder ever so often that I have felt good about my life before and do have reasons to stay. Even when it all seems extremely insignificant, it’s still true right? Still true.
I get frustrated when trying to select a genre for my music, but for some reason dark “Folk “popped into mind after I finished this song. It spells out my hopelessness when I think on society and my place here thoroughly. Grateful to have music to put the emotion and rage to work somehow.
I tie-dyed the shirt I’m wearing in this video and wish I hadn’t had to cut the sleeves off after a mess up with the scissors… This song is not about abuse from a partner, but I wrote it with the abusive language I hear from leadership at my job all the time in mind. The studio version I put together has background vocals https://open.spotify.com/track/3Bq3ibqY7xjPnhPQ99AQRw?si=ee454d7085dc4dfa
I updated the portraits page here with the painted collection I did a few years ago. This one is an interpretation from a cool photo of Cammie Gilbert, lead singer for Oceans of Slumber. Her tattoo in that reference photo was a lot more detail than I could even see so I improvised a tattoo and moved on…lol
