My name is Kelsey and I'm a painter. I believe in nature and art. I'm here to laugh at pugs, find inspiration, and steal. Sometimes I journal a bit. Click the "My Art" link above for my art tumblr.

It’s been raining a lot. The wetness saturates the already bright colors and makes everything vivid. It’s been about a year now since I rediscovered the power of color in a stone cabin by the edge of a lake.

A very belated post. I’ve been pretty busy tromping through the forest with friends, laughing at the trees, and hiding out in my studio.

Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.

Felix Gonzalez-TorresUntitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”

it’s always ourselves
we find in the sea.
