i think this pano of my studio really exemplifies how non cohesive my art is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
so, the piece on the right hand side is not finished yet but i thought i'd share a side by side of these self portraits and humble brag about the progress i've been making. i finished the piece on the left side about a year ago and i thought it was the single greatest thing i could ever make. it took me literally half a year to stitch. fast forward to today...i've only been working on the piece on the right for about a month and the difference between the two is insane. the first one looks so derpy to me now!! anyways, just tryna say that if you love something and you work your butt off amazing things can happen and you can exceed your own expectations of yourself!!!✨
some details~~~
finally finished this piece! made with watercolor, acrylic, embroidery, and appliqué. thanks to @ladyist for allowing me to use her photo as a reference 💖
