Little Prisons Collection Paintings Shop Update!!!

Hooray!!! The Little Prisons collection paintings are all on their way to the shop!!!
( They are expected to escape over there at 2.00 EST )

For the last couple of weeks, I have been engulfed in thinking about boundaries we trap ourselves into, little everyday habits that soon turn to routine, and imprisonment of our conscious (and subconscious) self in general...This formed a new collection of paintings, that took me on an amazing journey, challenged me constantly, but upon completion of each one, they provided a feeling of fulfillment, almost a feeling of release and freedom, the promise of which seems to underlie all of them...

The Great Escape, acrylics on canvas, 10 x 12 in.

The Spinster, acrylics on canvas, 7 x 10 in.

The Safe Place, acrylics on canvas, 10 x 12 in.

Comfortably Numb, acrylics on canvas, 7 x 10 in.

The Defeatist, acrylics on canvas, 13.8 x 7.9 in.

Caught In Time, acrylics on canvas, 7.9 x 15.7 in.

I also have some news for you...We will be moving to Brighton,UK in September, and that lovely hedgehog-boyfriend of mine has been there for the past few days house-hunting for us...

I am oh-so-extremely-and-utterly-happy to move back over there...
Unfortunately, he didn't take any pictures of the house to bring back with him tomorrow, (he wants it to be a surprise, although he had to reassure me several dozens of times of its awesomeness) but I promise I will post some as soon as we get there!
And of course this little guy is coming with us....

Happy August everyone!!!

    Brighton, you say? I have a buddy that I grew up with over here that owns a tattoo shop there now.
    When we were in London we kept trying to get down there, but we got lucky and he came to us!
