"I Aten't Dead"

To quote my favorite Discworld character. I just moved to Boston. And while times the NYC withdrawl gets to feeling a bit much, I just look out my REAL STUDIO window to my LAWN and somehow I think I can go on.

So I've been lax, I admit. The lead up to the move, the move itself (happening quite suddenly a month before schedule) and getting adjusted... sure I've been making art- just not sharing. Only some of it due to contractual constraints. That ends now. I've got a decent backlog waiting to see daylight and it's time to get back onto communicating with the rest of the world.

The above self portrait was done in a little over an hour one morning when I looked at a still-wet palette from another piece and figured I shouldn't let all that paint go to waste. I call it "You're Coffee's Getting Cold."


  1. I'm so glad you're liking Boston, I'll have to come visit you soon! Can't wait to see what paintings you've been working on.

  2. Gorgeous portrait! Also, let me know if you want me to introduce you to Awesome Folks up there.

  3. Happy to see you're posting again! I missed seeing your work. This is a lovely self-portrait. I think you've captured the lighting beautifully!

  4. You moved!!!! Why!??
    That's a fabulous portrait Christina :)
    You are so talented.

  5. Dear lord yes, moving can steal full months that would have been spent painting!! This is really lovely, and reminds me of the 'bathroom lighting' scenario. ;) Keep up the amazing work. Will I see you at Illuxcon next month??
