A video from earlier this time last year made by my big little brother @gabe_cuomo. @katierayrich  is in there playing with fire and making the frame for this piece. I think I got stronger at pushing color on these pieces this year since this painting, but just to make sure, I bought a ticket to Iceland to see the northern lights and bring even more color and light into these night skies.  I wonder if we will see them?!? I’ll find out in 3 weeks.

A world of infinite possibility 🌈
Last day to save 20% on large paintings  like this framed 32”x 40” greenhouse painting from @smithcollege and fresh prints in my Etsy store. Thank you so much for hanging with me in this journey as a painter this year! ⠀

I unrolled the first of this large print,  June Nights - 24”x48” and realized its that time to start wrapping up online sales already! I want to share a final sale to purchase this print or others this weekend before I close my online Etsy shop for the year. Link in bio. 🌟⠀

These little paintings are on cast porcelain. I’ve been experimenting with making new shapes for paintings that appear to float on the wall. It’s an endless quest to bring more birds on things. I’ll be heading over to @assemblenorthampton tomorrow with them for a holiday trunk show during Northampton Arts Night Out. 🌟Friday, Dec. 8th 5-8pm. It’ll be a lovely night among the amazing, inventive work of longtime creative machines, @bannerqueen @lauramasonphotography @taylorceramics @magazinedreamcollage #northamptonartsnightout
I hear it’s coming...
😍 not sure what to do next with this piece, but maybe @mizlizalex can just carry it around.
Lately, I’ve been pissed. How do I write this making clear that this is not the world against Scout? This is the world poking us to get angry. Every other day I experience micro-aggressions for my gender and class. From being kissed by a total stranger on thanksgiving, to someone staying to close at the gym to grunt and sweat, to not being able to leave my house without construction workers staring. I fainted on a plane and got treated like I’m deranged and not just sick and dehydrated. Afterwards I had to emotionally labor immediately after the experience instead of getting the care I needed. I have not been credited for my work and ideas in a public promotion about art. And that’s just 4 days. I keep hearing the voices of years in making confront me when I meet these events, “you’re too sensitive”, “you’re overreacting”, “you’re anxious”, “you’re paranoid...” I’m here to say and keep saying, Sexism, racism, bigotry, transphobia, xenophobia... to name a few, are mostly not overt “I hate yous”, but are small everyday guestures that wear at you. I would hypothesize that not speaking up to the minutiae of assault has landed up time and time again letting liars leading and undermines our health. The world as it exists today, would have you trying to doubt your sanity, your value, and your safety, over taking responsibility for it’s wrong doing. The golden eagle represents honesty, truth, strength, courage, wisdom, power and freedom. This little token that my beloved @serendipity_kid wanted made is a reminder that we have the right and responsibility to call people out when they are not treating you with the respect you deserve. I have heard the “let be” mantra, and there is a time and place for that. But it ain’t today. Let’s keep learning the language of speaking up, out, and calling in those we love closer. The people who important to hold dear, are the ones who say sorry, love you even if you disagree, support you if you have a gripe, or let you know if you do something that is hurting them and are able to still forgive. It’s ok to be angry. I guess it’s how I  put it to work that matters....
Ottie and bummy wing. For Dec.8th Trunk show @assemblenorthampton 8x8 glass and resin painting with steel frame by @carolyn.e.clayton ❤️
Love when those lows start to become the material for making. There’s a lot of bullshit out there that remaining silent isn’t going to work against. I hope you have what you need to be brave to stand up to it! And if not, may you be finding it soon in what makes your soul enliven. You got this!
